Movie Reviews

The pitched battle scenes are more pre-watershed than pure bloodshed but the lack of CGI should be applauded


It's not as dumb as it looks.

  • Reminiscent of the much-loved ET

    Earth to Echo

    Mixing sci-fi, action, drama and even a small bit of innocent romance, Earth to Echo is reminiscent of the much-loved ET.

  • Joe: Nicolas Cage as the rough diamond who looks out for young Gary (Tye Sheridan)


    Joe is a sensitively-expressed, often moving story, and Nicolas Cage carries it all manfully and mightily as the surrogate dad figure.

  • Shep Gordon: from havoc to hammock

    Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

    Everyone from Alice Cooper to Michael Douglas lines up to pay homage to legendary music and movie manager Shep Gordon in this rollicking documentary by Mike Myers

  • Serkis and Kebbell steal the whole show in face of mostly wooden human performances

    Dawn of The Planet of The Apes

    A highly-involved drama and action flick that really does come down from the trees

  • Boyhood documents the growth of 6-year-old Mason and his family over 12 years.


    Filmed over 12 years, Boyhood is a unique experience, which effortlessly spans the growth of one boy named Mason, resulting in a genuinely captivating story.

  • The feelgood hit of the summer

    Begin Again

    The feelgood hit of the summer.

  • Optimus Prime is back and shinier than ever

    Transformers: Age of Extinction

    This is the movie that never ends; yes, it goes on and on my friends...

  • Brendan Muldowney's new movie Love Eternal, starring Robert De Hoog and Pollyanna McIntosh

    Love Eternal

    Based on a Japanese novel, Love Eternal is the kind of surreal, creepy adventure story that Neil Jordan might also be interested in adapting for film.

  • Tammy stars Melissa McCarthy but it's a mis-hit of a movie


    Melissa McCarthy stars in a comedy she co-wrote with director and husband Ben Falcone that unfortunately is short on laughs.

  • Robert Gustafsson plays the obliviously endearing title role.

    The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window...

    Sweden's answer to Forrest Gump, The 100-Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared may not make perfect sense at times, but its witty storyline is far from boring.

  • The heat is turned up a notch in the sequel

    How to Train Your Dragon 2

    Fire extinguishers at the ready! Hiccup and the gang are back for some fun in this year's best animation to date.

  • Michael C Hall stars in crime thriller Cold in July

    Cold In July

    If Cold in July had been a better novel, then the film on which it is based would have been much stronger. It would have to be, with Sam Shepard and Don Johnson on board.

  • D'Movie dumps us right back into the bleak comedic winter of Carry On films

    Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie

    Mrs Brown explodes onto the big screen in an old school caper movie. Read Alan Corr's review

  • Tells the story of a mismatched group of thieves who don't quite trust one another

    The Art of the Steal

    This crime really does pay.
