Movie Review – From Up On Poppy Hill

Movie Review – From Up On Poppy Hill

People are funny sometimes, and not in a good way. They see that an animated foreign film is playing at a festival, and without doing any research about it, they drag their young kids along.

DVD Review – Arrietty

DVD Review – Arrietty

I’ve been lucky enough to review a few Studio Ghibli films this month, and ‘Arrietty’ is one I tried to catch at last year’s New Zealand International Film Festival, but wasn’t able to fit it into my packed schedule.

Movie Review – Ice Age 4

Movie Review – Ice Age 4

I really enjoyed the first two 'Ice Age' films, but felt they had jumped-the-shark with the third, though despite that it’s one of the highest grossing animated films of all time! Go figure!

Movie Review – Prometheus

Movie Review – Prometheus

There were three massive films I was looking forward to this summer, with ‘Avengers’, ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Batman 3’, and with the first being one of the best superhero movies ever, I was hoping the other two would also be awesome!

DVD Review – Sector 7

DVD Review – Sector 7

I’m a big fan of Asian cinema and happily sit down to watch most Chinese, Japanese or Korean films.

Movie Review – Trishna

Movie Review – Trishna

Seeing a film starring Freida Pinto is always a treat, but not because of her acting ability, but because she’s stunningly hot!

Movie Review – The Five-Year Engagement

Movie Review – The Five-Year Engagement

I’m a decently big fan of the film ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshal’ and its semi sequel ‘Get Him To The Greek’, so when I heard there was another film from the same director coming out I was keen to check it out!

Movie Review – American Reunion

Movie Review – American Reunion

Can’t believe it’s been so many years since I first sat down to watch the first ‘American Pie’ movie! Also can’t believe they are still making them!

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!

DVD Review – Totally Baked

DVD Review – Totally Baked

When I picked this month’s DVD releases to review, I scraped the bottom of the barrel when I picked this film. But, it had a hot girl on the cover and was about dope, so I thought it should be good for at least a few laughs.
