2/5 20% Spin Out "Real belly laughs are few and far between. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/5 62% Snowden (2016) "Edward Snowden doesn't fit the stereotypical image of a political activist or rabble rouser. And that's what gives Oliver Stone's forensically-minded docudrama its narrative traction. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2016
2.5/5 36% Blair Witch (2016) "Not so much a remake or a reboot as a fairly uninspired remix. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3.5/5 90% The Confirmation (2016) "Clive Owen wears a checked flannie better than your average movie star. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3.5/5 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) "Ron Howard's feature-length documentary, the first to be authorised by the band since its breakup in 1970, offers audiences a well-paced and thoroughly engaging recap. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 15, 2016

Posted Sep 15, 2016
3.5/5 78% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) "Watching RenĂ©e Zellweger reanimate the character of Bridget Jones 12-years on is a lot like reconnecting with an old friend. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 15, 2016
3.5/5 80% Girl Asleep (2016) "If David Lynch imagined an encounter between Red Riding Hood and Mean Girls' plastics on the way to Napoleon Dynamite's house, it might turn out something like Girl Asleep. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 15, 2016
2.5/5 64% Nerve (2016) "The two directors entitled their film Nerve. It's a pity they didn't hold theirs. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 9, 2016
3.5/5 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "What it lacks in ground-breaking developments, it makes up for with the tenacious charm of its lead terrier Max (Louis C.K.) and the surprising sass of his most ardent admirer, a white Pomeranian named Gidget (Jenny Slate). " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 9, 2016
3/5 82% Sully (2016) "Tom Hanks is as solid as ever in the role of Sullenberger, a stoic who is trying to hold it together under immense pressure -- from without and within. But... the character, while earning our respect, is a little hard to warm to. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 9, 2016
4/5 81% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Captain Fantastic's alternative lifestyle model might ultimately prove to be flawed, but the film still offers a convincing and frequently hilarious critique of conventional social mores. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 9, 2016
3/5 81% Sunset Song (2016) "After what can only be described as an audaciously bleak opening act, Sunset Song makes a gentle, sweeping turn towards greener pastures on behalf of its redoubtable heroine. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 2, 2016
2/5 46% Free State of Jones (2016) "This rich piece of civil war history has become oddly desiccated. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 2, 2016
2/5 26% Ben-Hur (2016) "Jack Huston's Judah also feels strangely diminished when judged alongside Charlton Heston's chiselled machismo in the same role. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3/5 67% David Brent: Life on the Road "As an ensemble, the actors underplay their roles to perfection. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3.5/5 88% Blood Father (2016) "While the violent B-Movie is far from autobiographical, it does offer the fallen screen idol a chance to acknowledge his past crimes and misdemeanours in a manner that plays to his strengths. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)

3.5/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) "Groceries aren't an obvious fit for the bawdy comedy of Rogen and his Superbad, Pineapple Express screenwriting partner-in-crime Evan Goldberg. That's a large part of Sausage Party's appeal. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Aug 18, 2016

Posted Aug 12, 2016
3/5 60% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "As a piece of storytelling, Absolutely Fabulous is fairly patchy. But the movie's larger-than-life format provides Edina and Patsy with a welcome opportunity to plumb new comedic depths. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/5 100% Embrace "As a piece of storytelling, Embrace is similarly intimate and idiosyncratic. And that's what makes it so accessible. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/5 56% Jason Bourne (2016) "Greengrass and Damon certainly can't be accused of cynical opportunism in returning to the franchise -- they've made a solid attempt, here, to honour both the character and his legions of fans. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)

Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "The spectres are scarier than in the original film. And the action is slicker. But the humour is surprisingly patchy in Paul Feig's hotly-anticipated Ghostbusters reboot. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 20, 2016
3.5/5 53% Demolition (2016) "Gyllenhaal is terrific as Davis, a role that requires him to control his emotions until they threaten to pop, and then incrementally, imperceptibly let the pressure off. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 20, 2016
3.5/5 98% Love & Friendship (2016) "With this keenly observed comedy of manners, director Whit Stillman has successfully reimagined the period romance for contemporary audiences. Sharp, funny and briskly paced. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 20, 2016

Posted Jul 15, 2016
3/5 70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "Our Kind Of Traitor isn't in the same duplicitous league as the best Le Carre adaptations... But director Susanna White holds her nerve with this intelligent, character-driven entry into the espionage universe. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 15, 2016
86% Goldstone "Noir fades to rouge in the harsh glare of the Aussie Outback. And few filmmakers are better qualified than Ivan Sen to capture this fascinating tonal shift. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 8, 2016
67% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "A good deal of the pleasure to be derived from The Wait comes from watching two strong actresses at different stages of their careers bounce off the other. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 8, 2016
86% Maggie's Plan (2016) "Funny, sharply observed -- and occasionally profound. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 7, 2016
36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Even with his superior instincts, the mythical hero can't find a way through the confused screenplay. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jul 7, 2016
87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Special mention should go to the Everybody Want Some!! hair and make-up department -- the lead actors' retro look is so convincing, you'd swear you were watching a documentary. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 23, 2016
98% Mustang (2015) "Erguven's assured direction seals the deal. There's a mythical quality to this tale of burgeoning female sexuality that transcends the more hackneyed elements of the plot and marks her out as a director to watch. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 23, 2016
73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle hits the odd bum note, but his affection for his subject is never in doubt. And he gets right under the musician's skin. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 15, 2016
94% Finding Dory (2016) "Finding Dory has some great new characters -- Ed O'Neill's cantankerous Octopus, Ty Burrell's beluga whale and Kaitlin Olson's whale shark stand out. The animation is exquisite. A good portion of the film, however, feels reheated. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 15, 2016
28% Warcraft (2016) "The 5.5 million active subscribers to the gaming phenomenon deserve better. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 15, 2016
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Horror-meister James Wan had yours truly pretty much from the opening sequence. And he didn't let go until the final credits rolled. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 15, 2016
10% Queen of the Desert "For moviegoers looking to lose themselves in an old-school epic, Queen Of The Desert certainly fits the bill. But as a celebration of the life of a feminist pioneer, the film is sorely lacking. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 9, 2016
34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) "The film's most impressive trick might be director Jon M Chu's ability to distract his audience from the realisation that this illusionist spin on the con caper is getting dangerously low on gas. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 9, 2016
38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Compared to Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocaylpse, Out of the Shadows feels like it's playing in the little league. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Posted Jun 9, 2016
30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "The first film borrowed so heavily from both books there is very little left for screenwriter Linda Wolverton to work with. And it shows. " ‐ Daily Telegraph (Australia)
