Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 63% High-Rise (2016) "It's also a touch overlong and indulgent in the back half... But it is bold filmmaking, taking on a source material as difficult as Ballard's novel, and makes a decent go of building this ghoulish world so close to our own. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 15, 2016
2/5 60% Bad Moms (2016) "Bad Moms knew the story it wanted to tell, and it's a worthy story, but it just wasn't any good at telling it. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 11, 2016
3/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) "Sausage Party may be the most un-PC mainstream movie to hit cinemas in yonks and it may outrage, shock and even repulse you at times, but it is undeniably ridiculously funny. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 11, 2016
2.5/5 40% As It Is In Heaven 2: Heaven On Earth "This sequel doesn't have the same heart and soul as its predecessor, failing to capture the feel-good spirit that made the first movie such a sleeper hit. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "Suicide Squad is a solid and entertaining third entry into the DC Extended Universe, one that suggests DC could almost have just as much fun as Marvel. Almost. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 2, 2016
2/5 61% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie could've been a hilarious meditation on ageing, fame and the desperate human desire to be relevant, but except for a couple of rare moments of clarity, it's as shallow as Eddie and Patsy. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Aug 1, 2016
95% Stranger Things: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Don't just watch it for the nostalgia or the genuine creeps, watch it because it's compelling storytelling. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/5 56% Jason Bourne (2016) "Did we need another Bourne movie after Damon and Greengrass had previously hung up their gloves? Probably not. But we'll take it anyway because it's still a gripping way to spend two hours. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3.5/5 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "In a time... when people are being pitted against one another by virtue of their place of birth or their faith, it's the reminder we need of how the collective can work together for something bigger and better than their own immediate self-interest. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 21, 2016
4/5 65% Swiss Army Man (2016) "Who knew a movie that devoted a lot of time to the bowel movements of the deceased could be so profound? " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 14, 2016
96% Mr. Robot: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "It's an incredibly cynical view of the world but it may be one of the most realistic depictions of our existence, even if it's the parts most of us never see. " ‐ Empire Magazine Australasia
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "McKinnon's timing, physical comedy and utterly joyful presence are the highlights of the film. If anything, she's not given enough screen time. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 12, 2016
3/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Despite its problems, The Legend of Tarzan is still an enjoyable popcorn movie with enough momentum and energy to keep you riveted the whole time. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 7, 2016
4/5 86% Maggie's Plan (2016) "Maggie's Plan is imbued with the kind of navel gazing that will inevitably grate on some viewers without the patience for it but for everyone else, there is much to like in this engaging and sweet screwball comedy. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jul 6, 2016
3.5/5 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Despite its easygoing spirit, Everybody is tightly structured, framed by four parties and a countdown clock to the start of classes. For a movie that's pretty much about nothing, it's incredibly well-paced and never overstays its welcome. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2/5 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "In trying to recapture the sheer entertainment value of the first movie, Independence Day: Resurgence forgot it was making a movie for modern audiences, relying on the kind of bad dialogue and plot contrivances better left in the 20th century. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 21, 2016
4/5 98% Mustang (2015) "Erguven has a naturalistic style and doesn't seem too concerned with flash or wizardry, preferring to let the story and characters take centre stage. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 21, 2016
3.5/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) "For kids and adults, there's a lovely parable about persistence, optimism and embracing difference. Something we could all use a little more of. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 20, 2016
2.5/5 39% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) "For all its ambition, the psych-thriller doesn't come together in any satisfying, cohesive manner. Its peaks and troughs leaves a viewer alternatingly stressed out and bored. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 15, 2016
4/5 96% Weiner (2016) "Ridiculously entertaining. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 15, 2016
52% Powers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The world of Powers might just be engrossing enough to sustain the flaws, especially if superheroes are your game. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Jun 10, 2016
4.5/5 100% Certain Women (2016) "Like the women whose stories it tells, Certain Women exudes a quiet strength. It isn't flashy nor is it imposing, but its purpose and meaning rings loud. " ‐ News.com.au

Posted May 25, 2016
2.5/5 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Lacking the fun, chemistry and emotional stakes of its predecessors, this X-Men installment is decidedly second class. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted May 18, 2016
68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "[Fey has] grown as a performer over the years and handled the emotionally heavy scenes in this film with a more considered and convincing approach, suggesting that one day we could see her in a (gasp!) drama. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted May 11, 2016
95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Director Gavin Hood has achieved something few could -- he made what is essentially 100 minutes of people standing in rooms and staring at screens incredibly compelling. It's a master class in suspense. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
83% Orphan Black: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Orphan Black is fast-paced and deliciously dripping with conspiracies, double crosses and shady characters with opaque loyalties. " ‐ News.com.au

100% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "From the moment you hear the infectious theme song, you'll be carried into a world of almost singsong dialogue and rapid-fire quips, jokes and references (including a perfect one to Mad Men). " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
81% The Girlfriend Experience: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The Girlfriend Experience is the perfect show to binge because it's a bit like a mosaic - each episode has these rewarding little moments but they're not self-contained, it's only when it starts to piece together does it tell an enriching story. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
84% Midnight Special (2016) "Director Jeff Nichols has created a bleak world confronted with the real prospect of hope, but only if you let yourself believe in it. " ‐ News.com.au

Posted Apr 27, 2016
78% Where to Invade Next (2016) "While Where To Invade Next doesn't offer any real solutions nor does it peek behind the curtains of anything earth-shattering, it is entertaining in Moore's typical humour-laden style. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "Over two-and-a-half hours, it stumbles its way through what feels like at least three different movies with clumsy tonal shifts and an entirely confused, barely-existent plot. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "There's enough variety in the action to sustain at least four major arrangements without resorting to more boom, smash and bam. For a two-and-a-half hour movie, everything's surprisingly well-paced. " ‐ News.com.au
Posted Apr 27, 2016
2/5 57% The Stoning of Soraya M. (2009) "Preachy outrage and clunky execution deplete a vital decrying of misogyny." ‐ Empire Magazine Australasia
