I really thought this was a very sweet film.

There's an awful lot to enjoy in this clever and charming film.

Perhaps the spectacle overwhelms the characters at times but this is a fun addition to this particular series.

Well, despite the camera work, I'm giving it three and a half.

4.5/5
To put this film in the category of mere narrative is to do it a disservice, it's a wonderful mix of social realism, magic realism and at the heart of it is an extraordinary performance from young Quvenzhane Wallis.

3.5/5
Phillipe Falardeau, who adapted the play into a screenplay, can't entirely paper over a few niggling loose ends, but overall this disturbing film is very effective indeed.

Hit & Run (2012)
Dax Shephard has a really attractive presence on screen and he's terrific in this.

The script, by Turner and Riley, and direction, by Ted Emery, lack distinction

It's not my favourite Wes Anderson film but I do like it very much.

4/5
His singular take on young love on the run from any sort of authority has moments of sheer oddness, but it's all of a piece with his other work and you are either an Anderson fan or you're not.

Total Recall (2012)
Colin Farrell is an unlikely hero; Bill Nighy is a laughable resistance leader. Kate Beckinsale - who rushes around like a harpy - is director Len Wiseman's wife, but I don't think he's done much for her career.

Hope Springs (2012)
I reacted against it and they've got this adolescent attitude to sex that I found irritating too. Come on, grow up, guys.

Hope Springs (2012)
The film isn't one of those dumb comedies - it's really quite a serious and I thought extremely touching and intimate film, and the performances are quite wonderful, with Streep again confirming what a talent she is.

Holy Motors (2012)
He has got a remarkable vision. There's no doubt about that. It's a film I would definitely recommend any film-lover to go and see.

Holy Motors (2012)
The film tantalizes and seduces you into a world that is mysterious but, for the most part, completely arresting.

Jeremy Renner takes over the franchise and lends his character a menacing charm.

Bernie (2012)
It's done very well indeed. I think Jack Black is wonderful. I thought that the whole progression of the film was, to me, unexpected.

It's a fascinating story presented in a really intelligent and weirdly entertaining way.

Audiences in this country say they want entertaining Australian films. Well, I've got to tell you, this is it.

If you want a feel-good home-grown movie, this is the film for you.

The Campaign (2012)
There are some funny moments, there are some sweet moments, there is also a deep cynicism with the political agenda in the United States at the heart of this movie.

What lifts this Australian romantic-comedy above the level of most of its Hollywood counterparts is the reality of the characters and the situations and the honesty of the film's approach.

The film is perfectly satisfactory -- but there's a profound sense of deja vu.

This sort of animation is what it is. Some of the visuals, particularly at the beginning of this film, were really lovely and imaginative but it's so repetitive all this franchise stuff.

There are more laughs in [the preceding] 4 1/2 minute short than in the entire feature that follows it.

Brave (2012)
This is one of the least exciting Pixar films and they're usually so imaginatively written; this is pretty banal.

Brave (2012)
Merida's curly red hair is an animator's dream, but not much else in this rather laboured fairy tale is memorable.

Prometheus (2012)
I was very disappointed. I think it even got to the point of being quite silly.

There's a bit of ballast in this romcom that is quite satisfying.

Swerve (2013)
As a thriller... SWERVE misses the target.

It's a strange but compelling story in which indolence and dissolution are confronted in a life or death moment.

Prometheus (2012)
Has enough tension and jolts to the system to make it well worth seeing.

Bel Ami (2012)
It's a strange story, focusing as it does on a man with no moral compass whatsoever. But the design of the production and of the costumes is one of the film's assets.

There are awkwardnesses in the film that I was not quite comfortable with but at the same time I think it looks really good.

Nammi Le gives a really fine performance in the leading role, creating a sad yet strong and resilient character with complete conviction.

Silent Souls (2011)
Stunningly photographed for the wide screen SILENT SOULS is another indication that the Russian cinema, despite its problems, is still capable of producing major work.

The Dictator (2012)
It builds up to this extraordinary finale and this speech he makes, which is like something out of Frank Capra practically.

The Dictator (2012)
[Baron Cohen]'s concocted what I think is his most sophisticated film to date.

Dark Shadows (2012)
Pitching the film playfully between farce, with a knowing satiric edge, high action and high romance, Dark Shadows is a lot of fun.

Safe (2012)
Like so many action films these days the film is over-edited and under-plotted, and we've seen Statham's tough guy character many times before.

3/5
Iron Sky (2012)
The performances are fine and the film, mainly shot in the studios on the Gold Coast, looks terrific most of the time; it's the script that needed more oomph.

Trishna (2012)
The film works because the social constraints that affected Tess seem to be still current even in today's rapidly changing India.

There's something quite haunting about the film, and perhaps more than one viewing is required to sort it all out.

Ecstasy (2012)
In the end, ECSTASY wants to have it both ways -- drugs are celebrated at the beginning of the film, and condemned -- or at least the crime connected with them is - by the end.

Spud (2010)
I think largely because of the completely innocent-seeming performance of Troye Sivan, it won me over and I found myself actually quite moved by the end.
