17/20 79% Good Boys (2019) ...provides a good head rush from all the giggling, but also surprising moments of poignancy that shows genuine heart underneath the profanity. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

8/20 22% The Kitchen (2019) ...attempts emphasis on the femininity of our leads in how they do business, putting a maternal spin on the idea of protection rackets, but all that manages to do is make the whole effort inexorably bland. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

13/20 68% Angel of Mine (2019) More than a little unsettling, but real. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

12/20 59% Ophelia (2019) .... deserves recognition for its artistic breadth, but also criticism for its own shortcomings, as it's much more fascinating to examine its influences rather than itself as a unique work. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2019
13/20 66% The White Crow (2019) The depiction we get of Nureyev, as captured by newcomer Oleg Ivenko, is one of frustrating inconsistency. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2019
11/20 65% Danger Close (2019) ...the unquestionably good intentions aren't enough to outweigh the middling results. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

80% Reflections in the Dust (2018) Reflections In The Dust lacks the immediate and quite visceral impact of Luke Sullivan's previous work, but it still shows him taking a tremendous risk in how he bends the rules of storytelling to fit his vision. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

5.5/20 57% Aladdin (2019) Where there should be wonder, there is CGI. And where there should be a fun and exciting comedic presence with the Genie, we get Will Smith doing his best Kazaam impression. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

6/20 27% The Aftermath (2019) Those who want romance aren't likely to vibe with the walking billboards offered here, those who want period drama will be aghast at the apathy behind it. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

17.5/20 92% Fighting with My Family (2019) If you want a good laugh, you'll find it here. If you want some Rocky-style physical exertion, you'll get your fill.
