2/5 81% Sausage Party (2016) "You can see the obvious social-political jokes being made, but it's so juvenile. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Aug 12, 2016
3/5 62% Bad Moms (2016) "Bad Moms is an entertaining, girls-mainly comedy about the problems of parenting. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Aug 12, 2016
2.5/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "Overall, though, the final two-thirds of the film are less funny than should be the case. The villains versus villains confrontation is not well explained and the fight scenes are unspectacular. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Aug 5, 2016
2.5/5 62% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "Absolutely Fabulous walks a tart line between embracing celebrity culture and rejecting it. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Aug 5, 2016
4/5 98% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "Visually and emotionally stunning. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 29, 2016
3.5/5 57% Jason Bourne (2016) "If like many people you are glad Damon is back as Jason Bourne, you will be even gladder after seeing this. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 29, 2016
3.5/5 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "This is the sort of reboot I like because it's there for everyone. Star Trek devotees will have their specialised views on its place in the 13-film universe, but average viewers will not feel marooned. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 22, 2016
3.5/5 99% Love & Friendship (2016) "Austen did like to have fun with her characters to show the stranger sides we all have. Watching this classy adaptation of one of her lesser-known works will remind you of that, and make you laugh. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 22, 2016
2.5/5 76% Lights Out (2016) "If you are in the mood for some neck hair prickles, this should do the trick. By the finely judged end, just who is causing all this horror is not clear, and that perhaps is the greatest fright of all. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 22, 2016
3.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "While there are in-jokes for diehard Ghostbusters fans and cameo roles for Murray, Aykroyd and others, including a few of the original ghosts, it's also an enjoyable supernatural comedy for one and all. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 15, 2016
3/5 70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "It's an intriguing character study embedded in a spy thriller. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 15, 2016
2.5/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "The Legend of Tarzan is a passable action adventure. I ended up thinking a lot about it afterwards, because I found it so odd. I'm not sure that's enough to recommend it. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 8, 2016
1.5/5 65% Swiss Army Man (2016) "There are moments, especially towards the end, when Hank's behaviour comes across, to my eye at least, as a moving examination of mental illness, of isolation in the ordinary world.. I could have done with more of that, and less of a farting corpse. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 8, 2016
4/5 75% The BFG (2016) "Steven Spielberg's The BFG is a marvellous, mood-lifting, word-mangling adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1982 children's novel. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jul 1, 2016
2.5/5 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "The early attacks on Earth are successful but the computerised graphics of cities crumbling and oceans rising don't have a lot of oomph. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2.5/5 28% Warcraft (2016) "This is basically a two-hour battle between humans and orcs, one that owes The Lord of the Rings franchise and the television series Game of Thrones. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2.5/5 11% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) "The animation is touchable (it's good to see in 3-D) and there's room for an interesting discussion with younger viewers if you know a bit about, well, the solar system. It's light on jokes for the adult viewer and the plot is a bit thin. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 24, 2016
3.5/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "The Conjuring 2 has a few slow moments and should be a bit shorter than two hours, but it's a technically dazzling, emotionally acted, scary film. Were I still a young teen I'd be having a few sleepless nights now. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 17, 2016
2.5/5 58% Me Before You (2016) "It's an entertaining enough film, buoyed by the chemistry between good-looking stars Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 17, 2016
4/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "An imaginative and absorbing piece of filmmaking. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 10, 2016
3.5/5 54% God Willing (Se Dio Vuole) "It's a warm, enjoyable, funny and sometimes wise exploration of family, friendship, faith, fallibility and fatherhood in a double sense of the word. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 3, 2016
2.5/5 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) "Overall I found this less innovative than the first film. It's a bit over plotted and yet less energetic, and too long at two hours. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Jun 3, 2016
3/5 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "Their slapstick physicality (especially Gosling's) and wry dialogue is worth a laugh, but is that due to the script or because it's two serious stars being funny? I think it's more the latter. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 27, 2016
2.5/5 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "When it comes to making us wonder, it's a bit predictable. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 27, 2016
3.5/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "If you are not familiar with the X-Men story it may pay to read up before joining the ticket queue. But overall it's an enjoyable and fast-moving movie about mutants in all their mystery. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 20, 2016
3.5/5 51% Bastille Day "A drama lifted by an entertaining script, old-fashioned action scenes and a few surprising twists. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 13, 2016
3.5/5 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) "I laughed more during The Angry Birds Movie than I have at any film for a while. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 13, 2016
2/5 7% Mother's Day (2016) "Whether you want to take your mother to see it is something only you can know. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 6, 2016
4/5 62% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "The script is intelligent and sharp, full of seriousness and humour. " ‐ The Australian
Posted May 6, 2016
3.5/5 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "There are lots of other laugh-out-loud moments: self-aware, comic book-aware ones for Marvel fans and straight-out ones for non-expert viewers. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 29, 2016
3.5/5 84% Midnight Special (2016) "Nichols is a director who isn't afraid to leave questions unanswered. I left the cinema thinking a lot about what I saw. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 22, 2016
2.5/5 22% The Boss (2016) "The Boss is not as clever or as funny as it might have been, but seeing it made me think about a few issues within the film and outside of it, which is not a bad result. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2/5 13% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "There are a couple of well-shot, exciting action scenes... but the overall effect is patchy in terms of plot and character relationships and unfulfilling in its intellectual reach and resolution of this world-changing story. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 15, 2016
2.5/5 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "The result is average -- there's not much of a story beyond the question of whether love can conquer all -- but watchable. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 8, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "There are so many wonderful scenes. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 8, 2016
3.5/5 97% Sherpa (2015) "Sherpa is different and arresting: it's an old-fashioned documentary that allows the participants to tell their stories. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 1, 2016
4/5 95% Rams (HrĂștar) (2016) "This is a film that allows you space to think, to make connections -- and to wonder what is going on and why. The actors are often silent; they are like people we might meet at any time, and being with them is challenging and rewarding. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Apr 1, 2016
3.5/5 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "This is a high-quality superhero movie for adults, which is a pleasant, almost superhuman, development. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Mar 25, 2016
3/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "If you are looking for an immersive action thriller, this will do the trick. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 26, 2016
3/5 42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "We will never know for sure but chances are Jane Austen would have approved of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 26, 2016
2.5/5 52% Risen (2016) "The story of Christ's resurrection is unlikely to take any sudden detours. But the Roman point of view adds real interest. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 19, 2016
3.5/5 49% How To Be Single (2016) "How to Be Single defies expectations in a satisfying way. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 19, 2016
3.5/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Black is in good form as the enigmatic Stine, but it is Minnette as Zach who impresses most. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 16% The 5th Wave (2016) "I didn't know anything about The 5th Wave before seeing J. Blakeson's film and assumed it would be a dystopian action thriller. It is, and a solid one at that, but it's also consciously comic. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3.5/5 94% Room (2015) "There's no denying that Room starts from a dark place, but that does not necessarily make it a bleak film. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "If you are looking for an agreeable and entertaining school holidays film for younger children, this is it. Fans of the comic strip should get a kick out of it, too. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3.5/5 9% Point Break (2015) "This is a high-grade action thriller that -- dare I suggest it? -- redeems the Point Break brand. And, yes, there's definitely room for a sequel. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
1.5/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) "It's all a bit of a mess and just not funny. Anyone who hasn't seen the first film will wonder what on earth is going on. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
2.5/5 84% Deadpool (2016) "By the end of Deadpool I was left with the feeling that it probably was more fun to make than it is to watch. " ‐ The Australian
Posted Feb 12, 2016
1/5 60% Sisters (2015) "One of the most disappointing films I've seen in a while. " ‐ The Australian
