Movie Review – Paranormal Activity 4

'Paranormal Activity 4' was...well, it was...hmm...ohh, I know...'Paranormal Activity 4' was the 4th instalment in a horror franchise. Yip, that sums it up perfectly!

Movie Review – Taken 2

Movie Review – Taken 2

'Taken 2' was exactly what I thought it was going to be, and that was something that would pale in comparison to the original, and I was right. It had so much to live up to, and I was just going to be happy if it was at least a decent film in its own right, which I’m glad to say it was.

I’ve missed many films at this year’s International Film Festival, and this film was one of them.

Movie Review – On The Road

Movie Review – On The Road

I missed lots of great films at this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival, but thankfully I get invited to press screenings for those films when they get general releases.

Movie Review – Expendables 2

Movie Review – Expendables 2

I was a fan of the first ‘Expendables’, but though it took itself a little too serious and could have done with more clever tongue in cheek jokes.
