  • Tomorrowland

    Brad Bird seems more concerned with creating impressive gadgets than a cohesive and compelling narrative.

    May 26, 2015 14:40
  • Lilting

    "...offers no quick fixes to its characters’ tragedy, but its narrative will resonate."

    May 26, 2015 12:58
  • Last Knights

    "... a thoroughly sombre affair about the themes of honour and bravery."

    May 26, 2015 12:50
  • Anarchy

    A top cast can’t save a bad idea. Here’s the proof.

    May 26, 2015 12:44
  • Partisan

    "Talent-to-watch, Ariel Kleiman, delivers a beautifully crafted yet equally disturbing thriller."

    May 25, 2015 09:27
  • Poltergeist

    Rehashes the original for cash.

    May 20, 2015 19:36
  • Woman In Gold

    "...it is a wonder how Woman In Gold could be so, well, lacklustre."

    May 20, 2015 10:19
  • Spy

    “…it’s a hoot to see McCarthy given the space she deserves to spread her comic wings.”

    May 19, 2015 11:01
  • My Love, Don't Cross That River

    “A work of extraordinary and disarming cinematic power…”

    May 18, 2015 13:57
  • Sunrise

    "...a mesmeric nightmare of violence and exploitation in the underbelly of a modern Indian city."

    May 18, 2015 13:47
  • The Devil's Violinist

    "Potentially there is a portrait of the artist in crisis buried beneath all the histrionics and parables."

    May 18, 2015 13:02
  • Small Time

    "Heartwarming and surprisingly sweet..."

    May 18, 2015 12:49
  • We'll Never Have Paris

    "Confident and very funny..."

    May 18, 2015 12:37
  • I Survived A Zombie Holocaust

    “…throwing everything at the screen from flying limbs to zombie sex…”

    May 18, 2015 12:31
  • Bound

    "...The Asylum’s inevitable mockbuster treatment of 50 Shades of Grey that many were surely crying out for."

    May 18, 2015 12:23
  • Wild Tales

    "This is a rambling, slightly shambolic, but beautifully messed up film."

    May 18, 2015 10:02
  • Mr Turner

    "Spall practically inhabits the role of the bolshie and radical painter..."

    May 15, 2015 16:29
  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    "Mad Max: Fury Road is a caterwauling game-changer, with George Miller mining meaning from mayhem with bravura flair."

    May 14, 2015 12:03
  • Blackhat

    “…overall this is visionary filmmaking of the first order.”

    May 13, 2015 11:23
  • When Marnie Was There

    It doesn’t hit the heights of Studio Ghibli’s best work, but the trademark warmth and elegance is there and the ending is an inspired one.
