|70 T4||The Black Balloon (2008) - Aug 19, 2009
"I found it very touching, and it really made me reflect on just what the parents of some of my students must go through at home. I did have trouble at times believing that the two boys were as young as they were supposed to be. The humour and romance were typically Australian, which is to say delightfully understated. I especially enjoyed the long poignant silences and meaningful looks."
|80 T6||Run Lola Run (1998) - Aug 19, 2009
"Funny. Great music."
|78 T5||It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - Aug 19, 2009|
|80 T6||Amélie (2001) - Aug 19, 2009|
|85 T9||The Band's Visit (2007) - Aug 19, 2009
"Simply wonderful! It could almost have been an Australian movie: quiet, filled with awkward pauses and meaningful silences, cultural conflict and satire, real believable characters. Beautiful, poignant, funny."
|70 T4||Hancock (2008) - Aug 19, 2009
"It was funnier than I expected it to be. Not entirely believable, but a welcome change from the usual super-hero fare."
|80 T6||Get Smart (2008) - Aug 19, 2009
"Yes, it's a little different from the original TV series, but it's a great movie nonetheless, with all the classic Get Smart humour and awkwardness. Everything you'd expect from a spy movie spoof! And Anne Hathaway was gorgeous and very sexy as 99, she got the old %u201COh, Max!%u201D just right."
|80 T6||The Visitor (2008) - Aug 19, 2009
"A beautiful movie about a university professor whose life is turned upside-down by a couple he finds squatting in his seldom-visited inner-city apartment. So far is it from a mainstream Hollywood movie, it doesn't even have a happy ending. The rich characters and the meaning they find in their growing relationships were wonderful."
|100 T10||Barfuss (2005) - Aug 19, 2009|
|80 T6||Lemon Tree (2008) - Aug 19, 2009
"A lovely movie about a Palestinian woman whose lemon grove becomes a threat to (Israel's) national security when the Israeli Defence Minister moves in across the road. She finds a lawyer to help her to take her appeal against the trees' destruction to the Supreme Court. Personally I could have done without the love interest, but nobody asks for my opinion."
