  • Rendition [DVD]

    By Clint Morris Here’s another film whose ostensibly been pocketed by ‘Where’s Wally’ – because it, like...

  • How She Move [DVD]

    I believe the youth dancing culture that this film is geared toward will very much enjoy this movie.

  • Indiana Jones : The Adventure Collection [DVD]

    You don’t really need to bother with this one – the extras are pretty much the same.

  • Remember the daze [DVD]

    No more than something adequate to watch between commercial breaks.

  • The Cynical Optimist 29/6/08

    Adam Frazier remembers Stan Winston, ponders a "Robocop" remake, and lays out some trivia

  • The Incredible Hulk

    Kudos too to director Louis Letterier (''Transporter 2''), whose action-film skills really come in handy here. He's...

  • Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

    By Gareth Von Kallenbach It has been four years since Harold and Kumar embarked on their munchies...

  • Cactus

    By Davin Sgargetta Considering the seemingly ill-fated recent history of Australian Cinema, with a string of mediocre products in recent years, some might say that titling the new Australian thriller, ‘’Cactus’’, a very bold and dangerous move. But, at the films end, it thankfully exhibited resilience, rather than doomed fate. Set in...

  • Smother

    I don’t want to go so far as to say that it’s a good film, but I must admit, I enjoyed it. If you want an entertaining few laughs from a film and don’t want to leave the cinema feeling cheated by a camp, far-fetched story, then give it a go.

  • Pathology

    By Clint Morris If there’s one thing you can say about Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, it’s that they’re consistent. Their first film ‘’Crank’’ – about a Professional assassin who learns his rival has injected him with a poison that will kill him if his heart rate drops – was in-your-face, ridiculous,...

  • The Forbidden Kingdom

    One to catch on DVD, perhaps?

  • The Invasion [DVD]

    A ‘dash of this’ and a ‘dash of that’ usually works when cooking – but not when making a Hollywood movie

  • Superhero Movie [DVD]

    Like most gag comedies, the filmmakers have thrown a lot of crap at a wall to see what would stick. More of it does than you expect, but only if you tone your expectations down accordingly. Of course, if you've paid money to see this, they were never too high anyway.

  • Chapter 27 [DVD]

    Leto’s inspired performance is let down by a filmmaker’s uninspired turn behind the megaphone and a hasty hand between the typewriter.

  • Vantage Point [DVD]

    What should have been a gripping, keep-em-guessing political thriller with more star turns than the photo area on a red carpet is instead a rather run-of-the-mill action-thriller with no real memorable performances.

  • Southland Tales [DVD]

    By Clint Morris This product may contain ‘traces of nuts’. The one thing I’ve noticed about the...

  • Awake [DVD]

    ‘’Awake’’ is like a Transformer for two reasons – firstly, there’s ‘more than meets the eye’ going on within its controversial story, but more so, just when you begin to get comfortable with it as one thing it suddenly changes into something totally different.

  • Jumper [DVD]

    By Guy Davis Despite what its title might lead you to believe, ”Jumper” is not the story...

  • Definitely, Maybe [DVD]

    Featuring terrific performances by Ryan Reynolds (I take it he’s playing older here - - in real...

  • The Bucket List [DVD]

    What saves “The Bucket List” from being a film only your unfussy-Nana-who-hasn’t-been-to-the-cinema-since-M*A*S*H would love is – well, Jack and Morgan

  • We Own the Night [DVD]

    By Adam Frazier Director James Gray (”The Yards”) has put together an impressive cast for his new...

  • August Rush [DVD]

    “August Rush” – the latest in a long line of ‘Why?’ efforts from the one-time king of comedy.

  • The Cynical Optimist – 1/6/08

    Burton & Depp re-teaming for "Dark Shadows", He-Man & Man-at-Arms re-teaming for "He-Man"!

  • Suburban Girl [DVD]

    Gellar’s done a good job – in fact, this might be her best work

  • Walk Hard : The Dewey Cox Story [DVD]

    A lot of work has gone into this puppy. Just a pity it’s third-act didn’t have a little more bark

  • Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    I'm pleased to report that all played the game like it was 1980 again. Indy is back!

  • The Golden Compass – Single Disc Edition [DVD]

    ''Harry Potter'' had it. ''Star Wars'' had it. ''The Golden Compass'' tries hard to find it. With an impressive cast, some fun effects and an inventive story, all the elements are there. But the resulting mix, though often explosive, just doesn't have the fizz to make the grade.

  • Speed Racer

    In a breathtaking whirlwind of light and sound the ‘60s Japanese anime, “Speed Racer,” blasts onto the...

  • Iron Man

    “Iron Man” will be glad to know he isn’t going to be a Comic Con attendee’s breakfast.
