  • Interstellar

    While Christopher Nolan’s ambition ultimately gets the better of him, there are moments of pure brilliance here.

    October 30, 2014 11:51
  • The Evil Within

    It’s a triumph in terms of splattery scares, but this is not the terrifying horror classic it could have been.

    October 28, 2014 12:08
  • William Kelly's War

    Breaking all the rules when it comes to low-budget filmmaking, this sprawling epic also proves a rollicking piece of entertainment.

    October 28, 2014 10:59
  • For No Good Reason

    It’s a worthy doco with a fascinating subject, but too often trades in the revelatory for the obvious.

    October 28, 2014 10:39
  • The Young And Prodigious T. S. Spivet

    This slice of magical realism unsurprisingly proves perfect material for director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, but it's laced with just a little too much cutsey sentiment.

    October 28, 2014 10:21
  • The Tale Of Princess Kaguya

    While cryptic in story and minimalist in form, this brave new offering from Studio Ghibli quietly dazzles.

    October 28, 2014 10:15
  • Pride

    A deserved crowd-pleaser which earns its rousing finale.

    October 28, 2014 10:06
  • Kill The Messenger

    Jeremy Renner is in top form in this compelling conspiracy flick that has you second-guessing your allegiances throughout.

    October 28, 2014 09:58
  • John Wick

    If you’d like to see an impeccably dressed Keanu Reeves executing masterfully choreographed fight scenes, look no further than this cracker action flick.

    October 27, 2014 18:08
  • The Best Of Me

    Working from a very cliched, well-worn template, the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation is strictly for fans of the “genre” only.

    October 27, 2014 10:28
  • I'm Not Angry!

    A furious, essential piece of filmmaking that barely manages to keep a lid on its rage.

    October 24, 2014 16:36
  • Fury

    A brutal and uncompromising war pic that makes for an unforgettable viewing experience, but also one that’s close to unbearably grim.

    October 21, 2014 09:40
  • HairBrained

    “…there is an unexpected charm…”

    October 20, 2014 11:45
  • Abandoned Mine

    “If it’s possible to label a horror film as family friendly, Abandoned Mine’s lightweight fare would fall into that category.”

    October 20, 2014 11:37
  • Imaginaerum

    "...there is a clear preference for visuals over plot..."

    October 20, 2014 11:28
  • Whiplash

    Driven by two riveting lead performances, this brilliant, blistering and uncompromising pic will leave you rattled and roused.

    October 20, 2014 10:38
  • Hector And The Search For Happiness

    Peel back the schmaltz and there’s laughs, wisdom and soul to be found here - largely thanks to Simon Pegg.

    October 20, 2014 10:29
  • Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed

    It’s a familiar but gorgeously told tale, which benefits from its strong central performances.

    October 20, 2014 10:20
  • This Is Where I Leave You

    This enjoyable adaptation excels in the laughs department, but struggles in its dramatic moments.

    October 20, 2014 10:10
  • Very Good Girls

    “That Olsen and Fanning manage to eke out credible performances is an achievement to say the least.”
