2.5/5
This slapdash animated adventure is a middling diversion at best.

3.5/5
As a thriller, it's damn effective. It had me sitting anxiously on the edge of my seat, knuckles whitened, not because of a gory death, but because of the suspenseful build up to one.

A bit like getting relationship advice from a clown. A really, really unfunny one.

Whip It (2009)
For a film that has all the inner workings of a generic sports movie, Whip It somehow avoids being one.

.5/5
Imagine That (2009)
[Murphy] continues to treat his career like it were a game of limbo, as Imagine That sees the once gifted comedian stoop to a horrendous new low.

3/5
Essentially a collection of Family Guy cutaway gags slapped onto a DVD and played back to back. No continuing plot, no overriding characters, no particular order. Just raw, uncensored hilarity.

A bland blend of two half-baked stories. Julie & Julia spends so long celebrating the art of cooking, it forgets to be dramatic, romantic or funny.

Stone Bros (2009)
Won't burst through the comedic stratosphere, but Stone Bros. is still a trip worth taking.

A kid-friendly caper that's drunk a bit too much CGI-spiked red cordial.

Moon (2009)
Moon is the kind sci-fi film you rarely see any more; subtle and intelligent. Yet it gets stuck on the launch pad to greatness.

Up (2009)
Another near-perfect Pixarian blend of escapist fun and heart-warming sentiment.

Push (2009)
There isn't a single word in the English language that could justly convey the sheer stupidity, and impenetrable complexity, of Push.

The Soloist (2009)
Despite being almost exclusively tailored to pluck at our emotional strings, The Soloist is an oddly uninvolving experience.

Driven by top-tier performances from Adams and Blunt, Sunshine Cleaning is a charming dramedy that lifts the dirt on life and death.

1.5/5
Packed with enough rap music, nauseating camera jerks, speed shifts and freeze frames to almost, so nearly, convince us something interesting is occurring on screen.

4.5/5
[Quentin Tarantino has] whacked history over the head and cut away all the boring bits, leaving behind a blood-drenched war epic like no other.

The Cove (2009)
It's thrilling, chilling, amusing and moving, and if I could think of any other sensations that rhymed, The Cove would surely be those as well.

District 9 (2009)
Easily the most exhilarating lesson in racial politics you're ever likely to sit through.

5/5
Balibo (2009)
What makes Balibo essential viewing is that, on top of its past and present political significance, it also happens to be one of the most captivating and thrilling films in years.

Grocery shopping is arguably a more novel experience than Robert Luketic's The Ugly Truth.

Defiance (2009)

Watchmen (2009)
Synder has achieved what many said was impossible; he has in-fact filmed the unfilmable, and arguably done so as well as anyone could have.

Duplicity (2009)

2.5/5
Whilst 3D glasses might mask this lapse of originality by putting it all in your face, from a standard visual plane, the creative potential of Verne's novel appears to be inexcusably wasted.

Yes Man (2008)
Yes Man is proof that reverse psychology works; No, it's not worth seeing because, no, it's not that funny.

Lacks the Gothic coolness that made the original such an underground hit.

More concerned with recruiting the testosterone troubled boys of today than it is rewarding fans of yesteryear.

Those next to me in the cinema staring blankly at the screen gave a remarkably similar performance to that of Reeves without even being aware of it.

Inkheart (2009)
Brendan Fraser's boyish face usually oozes charisma, but here he just looks plain bored. Which is kind of how the audience looked too.

1.5/5
If it's not fast and furious automotive action you're after, hoping instead for a cohesive character driven plot, then you're more likely to just get furious pretty damn fast.

It's certainly tough viewing, but Rachel Ward's feature debut is a superbly executed and deeply affecting piece of Australian cinema.

Boasting a cracking cast and a deliciously clever script, State of Play is a polished political thriller not to be missed.

Star Trek (2009)
One of the best sci-fi films of the last decade, and that's coming from someone who has never Trekked before.

Captivatingly told, dynamically directed and superbly acted; Slumdog Millionaire is near unfaultable.

With a commercially agreeable directorial style, Gus Van Sant continues his foray into provocative cinema with what is quite possibly his best film yet.

Mirrors (2008)
Alexandre Aja must have thought that just because he's basing a film around mirrors acting irrationally, he can proceed to remove logic from all aspects of the film.

In a post WALL-E world, it's hard not to be slightly underwhelmed by Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.
