  • Haunter

    "...an enjoyable romp through a haunted house."

  • The Inbetweeners 2

    The not so fab four head down under with Australian cliches and puerile jokes ensuing.

    August 19, 2014 12:22
  • In Search Of Chopin

    Rich and revealing in detail, this “search” for the famed composer is a classy affair.

    August 19, 2014 12:03
  • James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge

    Cameron continues his exploration of the deep seas with this doco, which paints the filmmaker as an alarmingly proficient and boundary-pushing adventurer.

  • The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared

    Charm alone cannot carry this quirky crowd-pleaser through its bumpy patches.

    August 19, 2014 11:43
  • 20,000 Days On Earth

    The film’s innovative form perfectly matches its iconic subject, and while indulgent at times, this rock doco is also insightful and inspiring.

    August 19, 2014 11:31
  • The Reckoning

    Writer/director John V. Soto delivers his best film yet with this tight, taut and compelling thriller.

    August 13, 2014 14:54
  • The Expendables 3

    It may not win any new followers, but for fans of the series, this blockbuster hits all the right notes in explosive fashion.

    August 13, 2014 14:26
  • Palo Alto

    While certain storylines play stronger than others, this atmospheric portrait of adolescence marks a promising debut from Gia Coppola.

    August 12, 2014 15:25
  • The Hundred-Foot Journey

    Despite some quality ingredients, Lasse Hallstrom disappointingly serves up a pretty bland and predictable dish.

    August 11, 2014 17:53
  • And So It Goes

    Even Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton can’t transcend the story's tired template or sappy sentiment.

    August 4, 2014 14:53
  • Begin Again

    It may play like a Hollywood version of ‘Once’, but there’s no denying its charm.

    August 4, 2014 14:38
  • The White Haired Witch Of Lunar Kingdom

    Lazy, unoriginal and lethargic, this Chinese historical fantasy fails in an epic way.

    August 4, 2014 10:55
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy

    Marvel’s biggest gamble yet has paid off, with this freewheeling and joyously offbeat superhero blockbuster.

    August 4, 2014 10:53
  • Lucy

    Its lacking in substance, but this is one wild, stylish and kickass piece of escapism.

    July 30, 2014 10:25
  • New World

    While owing a huge debt to ‘The Godfather’, this intricate Korean crime drama is all class.

    July 28, 2014 14:54
  • Rohmer In Paris

    A must-see doco for any cinephile who wants to boost their dinner party conversation skills.

    July 28, 2014 14:35
  • The Keeper Of Lost Causes

    A predictable but stylish affair, which ranks as another solid entry into the canon of Scandinavian crime cinema.

    July 28, 2014 13:35
  • A Most Wanted Man

    Philip Seymour Hoffman’s sublime performance is the main drawcard surrounding this solid but unspectacular drama.

    July 28, 2014 13:22
  • The Selfish Giant

    A stark and soulful adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s children’s tale, which proves devastating but truly inspired.
