40% Love (2015) This is a ground breaking, breath-taking and profound film in so many ways, it's such a shame that the acting is so ropable at times, and that the script wasn't trimmed to make the whole experience more palpable. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2015
82% Alex & Eve (2017) In the end, this is more comedy than romance, and on that level, it succeeds. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

33% Blackhat (2015) This is visionary filmmaking of the first order. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted May 14, 2015
31% Infini (2015) Like all great sci-fi, Infini is filled with big ideas, but this is ultimately an action thriller with the futuristic, space traveling milieu a background. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted May 7, 2015
99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) The film's heart is in the right place, and it serves as a sweet antidote to the slick, computer animated family entertainment of the now, so be sure to grab a child and check it out on the big screen. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) With contempo audience's infatuation with all things superheroes and comic book movies, and the baseline treatment of humanity in such movies, Kingsman: The Secret Service arrives at just the right time. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

81% Human Capital (2015) With its social commentary, multiple character narrative, and thriller framework, Virzi's film will appeal to local audiences who embraced Lantana, arguably Australia's last modern classic. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) Transformers: Age of Extinction has appalling dialogue, deplorable representations of women, un-self-aware action sequences, very little humour and racial stereotyping. In other words, it's a Michael Bay movie. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2014
92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) It might ramp up the action and the emotional ties in the story but does very little with the original's main attribute: originality. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

76% The Last Circus (2011) While it's packed with plenty of visceral and visual kicks, many of its themes may not translate to audiences beyond the borders of Spain. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

94% Lake Mungo (2009) It may be overstating it, but Anderson's command of cinematic language is right up there with Bryan Singer's audacious bag of tricks in The Usual Suspects. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

100% Noodle (2007) By the time the film reaches its lump-in-the-throat conclusion, you'll be glad to have discovered this touching and universal story. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT

26% Land of the Lost (2009) A Will Ferrell comedy comes with certain expectations, and the latest Hollywood adaptation of a beloved TV show does not disappoint on that front. Whether fans of the original Krofft Brothers cult TV show will go along with it is another story. - FILMINK (Australia) EDIT
