Movie Review – Mirror Mirror

Movie Review – Mirror Mirror

I love the director of this film as he’s got a very unique and awesome visual style for his films, but the trailer made it look like balls! And that’s not a good thing! It also made it look like it was for little kids only, so I had many reservations sitting down to see it.

DVD Review – Welcome Home, Soldier Boys

DVD Review – Welcome Home, Soldier Boys

My first review DVD of the week was 'Welcome Home, Soldier Boys', which I had never heard of before. The back of the case said it had been 'lost' for 30 years, so that just made it intriguing, so I marked it down and looked forward to not knowing what I was in for!

Movie Review – Titanic 3D

Movie Review – Titanic 3D

I remember seeing ‘Titanic’ for the first time 15 years ago and I loving it, but for some reason I had never seen it since. So it’s rather ironic that the very next time I saw it was at the red carpet New Zealand premiere of its 3D re-release!

Movie Review – Aliens

Movie Review – Aliens

I recently saw the re-release of ‘Titanic’ 3D, and it was awesome, but it got me thinking about James Cameron and his other films.

Movie Review – Wrath Of The Titans

Movie Review – Wrath Of The Titans

I remember seeing the first Titans film and really looking forward to it as I loved the trailer! Instead I came out disappointed, and I wasn’t fully sure why. So when I heard they were making a second one, and were going to fix what was wrong with the first, I was excited!

DVD Review – The Future

DVD Review – The Future

The 2011 New Zealand International Film Festival was nearly a year ago, but some films that screened are still making their way to the New Zealand big and small screen officially, and 'The Future' is one of them.

DVD Review – Battle Royale

DVD Review – Battle Royale

It’s funny that with all the hype out about ‘The Hunger Games’, that the DVD release of ‘Battle Royale’ finally made it to NZ! Of course, clearly not a coincidence!

DVD Review – History Channels, The Dark Ages

DVD Review – History Channels, The Dark Ages

I see a lot of History Channel shows that range from series that fill up 5 DVD’s, and some that are one off features, and those are often my favourite as they get straight to the point and don’t take up 8-10 hours of my life!

Movie Review – Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Movie Review – Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

I’ve never understood all the fuss over Marilyn Monroe, in both her look and work.

DVD Review – History Channel, Decisive Battles of the Ancient World

DVD Review – History Channel, Decisive Battles of the Ancient World

This 2006 TV show all about ancient battles, using computer game technology to recreate the set pieces, is right up my alley, or would have been many years ago.
