Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2018
87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) ...takes the skeleton of an action movie and uses it as a scaffold on which to build a bleak and confronting portrait of trauma and loss.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

100% Genesis 2.0 (2018) ...refuses to reduce its complexities down to a snappy conclusion, preferring instead to present its observations and let us do the work for ourselves.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2018

Read More | Posted May 28, 2018
85% Upgrade (2018) ...the wild, anarchic creativity of DTV SF permeates Upgrade, only it's sheathed in the concerns of today, not mired in the cultural extrapolations of a few decades back.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
92% Brothers' Nest (2018) ...if you're open to its acidic charms, Brothers' Nest is one for the books.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 22, 2018
71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) ...the Old West with the serial numbers filed off and a light dusting of spaceships, droids, and Wookiees.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
57% The Gateway (2018) ...a solid effort that traffics in ideas and emotion rather than pixels and explosions...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted May 13, 2018

85% Cargo (2018) Who'd have thought that the secret to new life would be to inject a little humanity into the old shambling corpse?‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2018
74% Breath (2018) ...an excellent, thematically complex, emotionally truthful coming of age story, and a truly impressive directorial debut...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2018
71% M.F.A. (2017) ...as an angry as hell piece of pulpy and politicised pop cinema, it's the business.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2018

Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
91% Walking Out (2017) Walking Out is a perfectly serviceable, somewhat old-fashioned, robust drama, but not much more.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) While the use of sound here is the hook, the success of the film rests almost purely on simple, old-fashioned filmmaking skill, and that's a trick Krasinksi has down cold.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018
17% The Titan (2018) Possibly worth a Sunday afternoon couch date when you've exhausted the more interesting options out there, but don't go in expecting anything transcendent.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2018

Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2018

Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018

Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
18% Death Wish (2018) ...embraces the gleefully grotesque, cartoonish excesses of its genre, and comes out well ahead on points.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
54% 12 Strong (2018) 12 Strong is entertaining enough, as long as you don't ever expect it to step outside its exceedingly specific remit.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2018
13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) ...marginally better than its predecessor in much the same way that being shot through the head is better than being guillotined...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) The Insidious series has always felt like The Conjuring's weirder, cheaper sibling...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
97% Black Panther (2018) ...perhaps the most complete on screen encapsulation of the wild flights of imagination comics are capable of, grounded in astute, modern political sensibilities...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018
17% The Cloverfield Paradox (2018) ...a fairly routine sci-fi thriller where most of the scenes tend to work as single units, but don't connect together nearly as well as they should...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2018

Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2018
57% The Commuter (2018) Taut, inventive, and never in danger of overplaying its hand, The Commuter is a robust and rather old-fashioned thriller...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2018

Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
14/20 32% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) ...not so much a story as a victory lap...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) ...a great Star Wars film, one that honours the traditions of the franchise but boldly pushes the envelope in terms of thematic complexity and emotional tone...‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
76% Swinging Safari (2018) ...a fun enough time, to be sure, but jokes about knitwear, bad haircuts and fondue parties only get you so far.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
