Movie Review – Hit And Run

Movie Review – Hit And Run

I didn’t know much about this film going into it other than it was written, directed and starred Dax Shepard, who people might remember from the early seasons of ‘Punk’d’ and the action adventure comedy film shot in New Zealand, ‘Without A Paddle’.

As a film lover, film reviewer, and general level 6 cinefile, I tend to watch a lot of trailers for upcoming films.

Movie Review – Total Recall

Movie Review – Total Recall

So, did I enjoy 'Total Recall'? Yeah, yeah I did. It created an interesting and believable world, and I was glad to see it wasn't a remake, as it really took its own path, so felt fresh...ish. But I also didn't think it was as good as the original.

Movie Review – The Bourne Legacy

Movie Review – The Bourne Legacy

I’ve been a big fan of the Bourne series since day one, as it brings together gripping storytelling, great action, and fantastic actors pulling off both likeable and believable characters.

DVD Review – Prophets Of Science Fiction

DVD Review – Prophets Of Science Fiction

If there are two things that excite me most about life, it’s film, and the future. Or should I say the science of the future. So of course that makes me a sci-fi film fan, which made this show a no-brainer when picking things to review!

Movie Review – Magic Mike

Movie Review – Magic Mike

I see a lot of films by myself being a film reviewer, and it’s actually something I really love to do. But even I thought twice about hitting up a film about male strippers by myself.

DVD Review – Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest

DVD Review – Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest

This is a documentary about a top 90’s hip hop group and their trials and tribulations over the years. From the polar opposite view points of the two creative heads, Q-Tip and Phife, to the fan base and other artists who have been influenced by the music and their style.

There are many times I feel very privileged to be a film reviewer. Most of the times I do it’s because I get to see some amazing films for free, and when I saw this film last year the at the NZIFF, I loved it!
