Trolls (2016)

"A repeating joke with James Corden's troll never hits while the auto-tuned T-Pain troll is always - ALWAYS - funny." ‐Flicks.co.nz

The Founder (2017)

"Michael Keaton slides into the role of Kroc like a greasy weasel, wriggling through the world of business with a slimy smile and a sober slur. " ‐Flicks.co.nz

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

"Redmayne makes for a tender, unique, heart-warming hero who can sometimes seem more Time Lord than wizard (complete with Tardis-like luggage). " ‐Flicks.co.nz

Ben-Hur (2016)

"I've got to give credit to this new version for being entertaining in parts, even though it still can't justify its own existence." ‐Flicks.co.nz

Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"If you're just in it to see mutants scrap it out, Dragon Ball Z-style, you'll probably leave satisfied. That won't stop Deadpool 2 from drawing stuff on this film's forehead." ‐Flicks.co.nz

Tickled (2016)

"It's funny, it's compelling, and - as Farrier loquaciously states - "it's actually f--king creepy as f--k." " ‐Flicks.co.nz

The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016)

"Appropriately by-the-numbers, for the true story probably doesn't lend itself to Oscar-worthy grandeur." ‐Flicks.co.nz

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)

"We're treated to less of the same, and while that is disappointing, it doesn't deny this trilogy from being one of the best franchises to come out of DreamWorks Animation Studios." ‐Flicks.co.nz

Inside Out (2015)

"Pixar aren't afraid to take its audience to darker territories either, and when they do, a simple story about moving house becomes an achingly moving farewell to childhood." ‐Flicks.co.nz

Aloha (2015)

The Imitation Game (2014)
