3.5/5 32% Men, Women & Children (2014) I'm not sure that Reitman has completely succeeded. But he's been well served by a splendid cast, both young and adult, and the film certainly packs in a message.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

3.5/5 66% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) The strength of this third manifestation of The Hunger Games is in the cast and in the screenplay.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

4/5 96% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) While some people think this surpasses the original, I don't. The storylines are fractured and geographically and narratively it's sometimes hard to figure out what's going on... but the positives are many.‐ sbs.com.au

2.5/5 29% Love, Rosie (2015) It's all a bit of a mess really. Despite the likeability of the two stars - Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, whose mouth resembles Hugh Grant's - there is so much silliness in this film that I found it alienating. ‐ At the Movies (Australia)

2/5 19% Let's Be Cops (2014) This is pre-adolescent humour. I'm sorry. I don't mean to be rude to pre-adolescents.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

4/5 94% Whiplash (2014) The searing performance of J. K. Simmonds as this Machiavellian maestro is the key to this film.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

2.5/5 22% Dracula Untold (2014) It's pretty ludicrous and silly and I found the dialogue was so clichéd and some of the shots as well. However, I think Luke Evans is a really charismatic performer.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

4/5 88% Gone Girl (2014) It's only towards the end that you become aware of the improbability of the whole, but by then it's too late, you've been hooked.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

1/5 60% The Equalizer (2014) It is an empty vessel with such a simplistic premise for what turns out to be a sadistic bloodbath.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

3.5/5 78% The Grandmaster (2013) This air of melancholy that lies over the film is - I don't know. I was very interested about all this north, south the various elements of Kung Fu. I learned stuff from the film.‐ At the Movies (Australia)

3/5 68% The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015) I thought it was a bit turgidly directed. It could have had a brisker pace and I'm not into this picaresque, cute thing.‐ At the Movies (Australia)
