Movie Review – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Movie Review – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

When I first saw the trailer for this film all I could think was how much talent was up on screen!

Movie Review – My Week With Marilyn

Movie Review – My Week With Marilyn

I’ll admit it right here, right now, I have never seen a Marilyn Monroe film! I know, shocking, but she’s just never ‘done’ it for me so have never held it as a high priority to watch one.

DVD Review – The Trip

DVD Review – The Trip

I first saw this film last year at a press screening and thought it was great, and knew I’d love it again on DVD! It’s a hard film to describe as it’s not a documentary, not a mockumentary, not a normal narrative film, and isn’t fully an improvisational film either.

Blu-Ray Review – Through The Wormhole, Season 2

Blu-Ray Review – Through The Wormhole, Season 2

I watched season one of this show last year and thought it was just good, as I’m a big fan of ‘The Universe’ series, and so it had a tough act to live up to. But the second season still perked my interest enough to give it ago, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Movie Review – The Skin I Live In

Films often come out that are intentionally fucked up, and push boundaries for the shock value only. But then there are the ‘clever’ ones that push the boundaries in clever ways, while still being crazy as shit!

Movie Review – John Carter

Movie Review – John Carter

If I had of known that Andrew Stanton was directing this film, I would have gone in really excited, as he’s the genius behind ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Wall-E’! Instead I thought the trailer was average and I didn’t have high hopes for it.

Movie Review – Underworld: Awakening

Movie Review – Underworld: Awakening

I’m a big fan of this series, and even of the third one that a lot of people didn’t like, though that more comes down to Kate Beckinsale not being in it!

Movie Review – Project X

Movie Review – Project X

Well, I only just reviewed another found footage film, and here we have another interesting twist to the genre, kind of similar to the ‘Chronicle’ film which put a super hero twist on it. This film though puts the teenage party angle on it, so instantly I’m kind of hooked.

Movie Review – The Devil Inside

Movie Review – The Devil Inside

There have been so many found footage films of late, or at least that mockumentary style of films. Blame ‘Blair Witch’ or the ‘Paranormal Activity’ series, but either way they are here to stay, at least for now.

DVD Review – Submarine

DVD Review – Submarine

I first saw this film at the 2011 New Zealand International Film Festival, and then a few months later at a press screening before its cinema release. So I couldn’t help myself picking it as one of my DVD reviews this month, even though it would have meant 3 viewings in 6 months.
