Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
9/10 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) This movie's ultimate achievement is remembering what a great Spider-Man movie should always be in the end: fun, heartfelt, and exciting without ever losing sight of what makes the character so beloved and iconic. ‐ Starburst

6/10 41% Justice League (2017) In the end, Justice League is an enjoyable fun, if severely flawed movie that is better than the first three entries in the DCEU, but falls short of Wonder Woman's heights. ‐ Starburst

10/10 100% Paddington 2 (2018) What Paddington 2 demonstrates is that in the currently messed-up and hectic world we currently live in, we need films like this to remind us how we need something loving to make our lives endearing, akin to the warm message of It's a Wonderful Life.‐ Starburst

10/10 91% A Clockwork Orange (1971) Like all of his movies, Stanley Kubrick's direction is simply astonishing in every frame; from the warped angles to the eerie motion and surreal atmosphere, it just all adds to the disturbing, deranged environment/mindscape Kubrick's trying to create. ‐ Starburst

8/10 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Despite its flaws, Wonder Woman is every bit as epic as Batman v. Superman or Suicide Squad, yet has the humanity and emotion that those movies sorely lacked, despite being smaller-scaled. ‐ Starburst

8/10 96% Belle de Jour (1968) Belle de Jour is a film that's ambiguous and alluring in equal measure, and while that can be alienating for modern audiences, this is a film that is still radical, thought provoking and enticing after 50 years.‐ Starburst

8/10 81% Cult of Chucky (2017) Inventive, sinister and with some ingenious kills, Cult of Chucky is right up there with the best that this fan favourite franchise has put out since its inception in 1988. Wanna play? You bet we do!‐ Starburst

7/10 65% The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One (2017) With all its faults, The Osiris Child is still a solid movie that shows the potential for what can be possible in Australian cinema, just as long as you have the passion, ambition and creativity driving it. ‐ Starburst

7/10 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) For the most part, Atomic Blonde is an atomic blast, delivering on the action and allure with style and panache. Theron is one cool action badass.‐ Starburst

6/10 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is absolute nonsense like no other ... but with an actual sense of humour. It's beautifully realised, highly imaginative and creative, yet has goofy performances and a script that revels in its cheesiness.‐ Starburst

9/10 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie may be silly, stupid and ridiculous, but it's incredibly creative with its humour, animation, characters and story that its silliness makes it all part of its charm.‐ Starburst

9/10 93% Baby Driver (2017) Edgar Wright has been an influential presence in cinema and once again, he delivers in spades with Baby Driver rocketing upwards into the higher echelons as one of the best films to come out of this year.‐ Starburst

6/10 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) The unsatisfying storytelling and the fact that we should expect more from this beloved franchise ... makes this somewhat disappointing.‐ Starburst

7/10 43% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) It reinvents the franchise in a bold and mature way, while never losing sight of the campy fun that made Power Rangers so beloved to begin with, and for that alone, that makes this movie a worthwhile surprise.‐ Starburst

7/10 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) As it stands, this version is still an enjoyably solid watch, but it's just not the ambitious masterpiece that it could've been.‐ Starburst

10/10 93% Logan (2017) Logan is as understated a masterpiece as there's ever been, delivering the Wolverine film we've all been waiting for, and if this truly is Hugh Jackman's final time playing him, he has definitely left the series on a high note.‐ Starburst

7/10 86% Sun Choke (2016) This will probably not be to everyone's tastes considering the film's uncomfortable nature and the lack of clarity within the narrative, but this film offers a unique experience that'll leave you surprised and intrigued.‐ Starburst

3/10 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) It's probably best to stick with the games.‐ Starburst

10/10 92% La La Land (2016) Not just a bona fide masterpiece, but also the best film of the year bar none, capturing the true nature of Hollywood and Los Angeles in a way that's both unconventional and surprising.‐ Starburst

6/10 30% Passengers (2016) There is fun to be found, but when is all said and done, the eyes may be sated, but the brain's still craving.‐ Starburst

10/10 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Kelly Fremon Craig [has created] what is a true gem of a movie that has the hallmarks of a bonafide cult classic, which proves that she's truly a talent to watch out for.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Downhill (2016) The fact that Patricio Valladares just went for it and thrown so many enticing ingredients into an already spicy soup is commendable and that makes the film more enjoyable than it sounds‐ Starburst

4/10 13% 400 Days (2016) In the end, 400 Days is a good and compelling idea that has been disappointingly realised with a preposterous second half.‐ Starburst

3/10 15% Gods Of Egypt (2016) It is one of the worst films of 2016, and while it is entertaining, the entertainment factor is completely unintentional.‐ Starburst

7/10 100% Just One Drink (2015) As far as independent short films go, this is one of the better ones out there.‐ Starburst

7/10 28% Momentum (2015) Momentum is in the end silly, trashy B-movie nonsense, yet it's top quality trash of the highest order as it does what it sets out to do by being enjoyably entertaining and having a stylistic gloss to its visuals.‐ Starburst

9/10 91% Faults (2015) Psychologically thrilling, yet oddly and darkly comic at times, Faults is an intense character study that gets under your skin and sends chills up your spine.‐ Starburst
