  • The Little Death

    Despite a couple of bright spots, this ill-conceived sex comedy simply isn’t as subversive as it sets out to be.

  • April Rain

    “…po-faced and absurd in equal measure.”

    September 23, 2014 10:29
  • In Bloom

    By zeroing in on the daily lives of two best friends living in a brutally fatal world, this coming of age story is both remarkable and heartbreaking.

    September 23, 2014 10:24
  • All Cheerleaders Die

    “…clever and sassy…”

    September 23, 2014 10:23
  • The Skeleton Twins

    Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader team up for their finest cinematic collaboration yet with this wry and bittersweet comedy.

    September 23, 2014 10:13
  • Aeroplane Vs. Volcano

    “…worth nothing more than cursory glance.”

    September 23, 2014 10:01
  • Life Of Crime

    The black humour and sharp cast ensure this Elmore Leonard adaptation is a worthy watch.

  • Destiny

    tl:dr: Destiny is a fantastic shooter attached to a lacklustre story. How can something be deeply predictable and generic yet utterly compulsive and engaging at the same time? It’s a bizarre paradox and one that Bungie’s Destiny offers players. Well worth playing, but just know what you’re getting into.

  • Jodorowsky's Dune

    “...must-see doco...”

    September 16, 2014 10:24
  • We Are The Best!

    “Funny and full of bluster…”

    September 16, 2014 09:38
  • Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

    “...a worthily prurient follow-up...”

    September 16, 2014 09:35
  • Rock The Casbah

    “...engaging, if slightly predictable...”

    September 16, 2014 09:31
  • The Maze Runner

    “...bloodless...”

    September 16, 2014 09:26
  • The Infinite Man

    “…fun, funny, insightful…”

    September 16, 2014 09:10
  • The Boxtrolls

    “...thoroughly entertaining...”

    September 16, 2014 09:01
  • Wish I Was Here

    “…honest, funny and touching…”

    September 16, 2014 08:40
  • The Immigrant

    “…richly textured…”

    September 11, 2014 10:15
  • Step Up All In

    "...spectacle wrapped in story."

    September 10, 2014 11:05
  • Tarzan

    “…much too safe with both story and animation.”

    September 10, 2014 10:54
  • I Origins

    "...thought provoking and ideologically challenging."
