  • Foxcatcher

    Defying categorisation, this superb tale simmers with tension and features three scorching performances.

  • The Theory Of Everything

    "...hits all the right beats, though never quite soars."

    January 27, 2015 11:01
  • Still Alice

    "...both heartbreakingly complex and simmering with the subtleties of realism."

    January 27, 2015 10:47
  • Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead

    "Violent, fast-paced, frequently silly, occasionally hilarious and unapologetically Aussie..."

    January 21, 2015 16:43
  • The Stream

    "...a good looking film with a lot of heart."

    January 20, 2015 10:23
  • Wild

    Reeth Witherspoon may not wholly transcend her star image but she proves a vivid core to this familiar but spirited tale

    January 19, 2015 13:56
  • American Sniper

    Eastwood triumphs with a measured, morally complex, and utterly gripping snapshot of what war can do to the men who fight it.

    January 19, 2015 13:46
  • The Evil Dead Anthology

    Is it worth your cash?

    January 16, 2015 15:59
  • The Wedding Ringer

    The chauvinism on display here undermines the few laughs offered up.

    January 15, 2015 15:09
  • Paper Planes

    Robert Connolly delivers a soaring kids flick with this charmer.

    January 13, 2015 11:26
  • Birdman

    While admirably ambitious in style, this dark comedy could have let a little more emotion seep in at the sides.

    January 13, 2015 10:36
  • Unbroken

    Angelina Jolie more than proves her worth behind the lens with this richly impressive epic.

    January 13, 2015 09:59
  • Birth Of A Warrior

    "Hopefully, one day Australia will get a martial arts film that rivals that of Asia. But this ain't it."

    January 9, 2015 14:28
  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    While style may trump substance, there’s no denying this slick new comic book adaptation has all the elements to become the next big franchise.

    January 9, 2015 13:49
  • Bolts And Blip: Battle Of The Lunar League

    “…colourful and energetic...”

    January 9, 2015 12:19
  • Taken 3

    It’s the audience who are taken this time – for a cheap ride and a lazy send-off.

    January 7, 2015 14:19
  • The Desert

    “…the very definition of a slowburner…”

    January 5, 2015 15:02
  • Into The Woods

    This largely family-friendly affair never hits the dark heights of its original source material.

    January 5, 2015 14:45
  • Life Itself

    It’s two thumbs up for this spirited tribute to a cinema legend.

    January 5, 2015 13:52
  • Dumb And Dumber To

    This slapped together sequel barely manages to surpass even the most modest expectations.
