4/5 92% Children of Men (2006) Ultimately grimy, both in subject matter and visually, thanks to set designers Jim Clay and Geoffrey Kirkland), the picture is frightening and powerful. - Quickflix EDIT

3/5 42% Step Up: All In (2014) The picture is high energy, feel-good, and sweet like bubblegum, and that's perfectly okay. - Quickflix EDIT

3.5/5 78% Ginger & Rosa (2013) Ginger and Rosa is a small flick that reminds audiences how exciting it is to see raw and sincere performances despite what kind of package they're delivered in - Quickflix EDIT

4.5/5 99% The Missing Picture (2014) The Missing Picture is a haunting and sobering documentary that not only mesmerises with its narrative but also impresses with its collage of techniques that merge seamlessly to give us something truly unique on screen. - Quickflix EDIT

3.5/5 42% Divergent (2014) Tris is no Katniss Everdeen, and Divergent is a better film for not trying to impersonate a similar trilogy. It won't excite the world to the extent of The Hunger Games but this more humble offering is nevertheless exciting, fun and satisfying. - Quickflix EDIT

4/5 84% Batman Begins (2005) It's a refreshing approach to the genre, even when revisiting years later, in an era inundated with superhero movies where each tries to better the last's visual effects budget. - Quickflix EDIT

3.5/5 89% 52 Tuesdays (2015) The movie stands out for all of the right reasons. It's a breath of fresh air, especially within the Australian industry, and not just because of its unique approach to shooting. - Quickflix EDIT

3.5/5 83% The Bourne Identity (2002) Whether you consider it a smart thriller or a paint-by-numbers spy caper, The Bourne Identity is a dynamic interpretation of Robert Ludlum's bestselling novel. - Quickflix EDIT

3/5 34% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) There's no depth to what you see on screen here: MacFarlane is simply doing what he does best; delivering cheap laughs as he continues to try and push the boundaries. - Quickflix EDIT

1.5/5 11% Grace Of Monaco (2014) The picture anesthetises you into boredom with its inflated sense of purpose, missing an opportunity, whether as a biopic or an artistic drama, to both honour Kelly's memory and entertain modern audiences. - Quickflix EDIT

4.5/5 81% The Pirate Fairy (2014) At its core, underneath the swashbuckling adventure, Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy is a thoughtful tale of female friendship, of appreciating individuality, opening one's mind to new possibilities and always believing in second chances. - Quickflix EDIT

3.5/5 91% Belle & Sebastian (2013) A tale of innocence and companionship that is thankfully nowhere near as traumatic as Old Yeller. - Quickflix EDIT

4/5 96% The Lunchbox (2014) The Lunchbox is the kind of picture that envelopes you like a warm blanket, charming you with its slow-building affection and life-altering curries. - Quickflix EDIT

4/5 89% To Sir, With Love (1967) Sentimental reflections on an inspirational teacher are often the makings of weak dishwater films, but in James Clavell's To Sir, with Love, a strong cast and an unforgettable title song make this an undeniable classic. - Quickflix EDIT

2.5/5 25% The Other Woman (2014) It's hard to know what came first: Upton or the bad role. - Quickflix EDIT
