Sunday Times (Australia)
The Lost Boys (1987)
"A corn-ball '80s vampire classic! Starring the two Corey's!"
"Sinbad is harmlessly inoffensive enough to be enjoyed by the kind of pre-teen kids who love a good swashbuckling adventure full of all those cartoon cliches, but anyone hoping for more will have to set sail on another adventure."
National Security (2003)
Who Is Cletis Tout? (2002)
Russian Ark (2002)
White Oleander (2002)
Read My Lips (2002)
"Secretary might be too hot to handle for prudes and fuddy-duddies. But then again, it's the kind of film they might enjoy the most."
Taxi Driver (1976)
"Scorcese's first masterpiece."
Igby Goes Down (2002)
"The nearest thing we've got to a big-screen Catcher in the Rye...with Kieran Culkin giving a very Holden Caufield-esque performance."
25th Hour (2003)
"A moving tribute to resilience in the face of ruination."
Old School (2003)
"A cheery, unapologetically goofy comedy about mid-life regression, minus the gross-out gags. And for that, at least, we can all be thankful."
The Four Feathers (2002)
"In the end, it's all just lost in the dust."
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
"I have two pet hates when it comes to sequels; most aren't necessary, and most stars don't return from the original. Welcome to 2 Fast 2 Furious."
The Core (2003)
"Switch off, space out, and go where no self-respecting film lover has gone before."
Bruce Almighty (2003)
Whale Rider (2003)
". More than a story of a girl rejected because she wasn't born a boy, Whale Rider challenges traditional gender roles in a circle of life drama that begins with a birth and ends with a re-birth. ."
The Life of David Gale (2003)
". When all is said and done, The Life of David Gale is thus only worth about $8.50 on a cheap Tuesday. ."
In the Company of Men (1997)
"Brilliant black comedy - razor sharp, unapologetic stuff."
The Accidental Tourist (1988)
The Evil Dead (1981)
"One of the scariest horror films ever made."
Phone Booth (2003)
". To use phone language, it doesn't put you on hold for one second. ."
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
". I watched The Matrix to freshen up on all that coolness the night before seeing Reloaded. I would still watch it again over this. ."
"A bleak, beautifully crafted, intelligent tale of paranoia - a typical subject for Cronenberg. It's a pity most audiences will, ironically, go mad trying to decipher it."
Alexandra's Project (2003)
"An edgy little Aussie thriller that will have husbands shaking in their shoes, Alexandra's Project is a film like no other."
The Hunt for Red October (1990)
"A superbly crafted cold war thriller, with excellent performances, cinematography and tension."
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
". I hate to label this lightweight romp a "chick flick", but when the title actually issues a challenge to the fairer sex, well, the writing is on the wall."
The Good Girl (2002)
"The Good Girl belongs to Aniston, who buries Rachel in style with a sweet, soulful, hangdog performance that you will be thinking of long after you leave the cinema. ."
Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)
X2: X-Men United (2003)
"While most movie-goers will love the film's sheer thrill ride, X-Men fans might leave a little disappointed. The best, I guess, is yet to come. ."
Johnny English (2003)
"It's the same bawdy British humour as the Ali G movie, and there's more inspiration in the gags from Jackass. ."
The Muppet Movie (1979)
"Timeless, ingenius, wholesome fun for ALL ages. A classic!"
Critters 3 (1991)
"It starts out as an intriguing story of telepathic friends and ends up a monster mash of Ed Wood awfulness."
Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
"Sandler essentially plays the same socially retarded moron that made him rich, but Anderson strips him of his usual comic props ... He's buried the man-child within and brought all that emotionally stunted melancholy to the surface."
Ned Kelly (2003)
"At last! A feature film about Australia's greatest outlaw and folk hero that, while not reaching five-star status, all Australians can be proud of."
Antwone Fisher (2002)
"Washington is customarily solid as the naval shrink, but directs without imagination or flair, sticking to Hollywood conventions and skimming over the harsher aspects of Fisher's life."
2 Days in the Valley (1996)
The Boys from Brazil (1978)
