DVD Review – Reno 911! Season 5

DVD Review – Reno 911! Season 5

Often shows get worse with time after maybe peaking at season 3 or 4 and sometimes they go on for much longer dying a very slow death. Some have been known to be strong from the first show until the last, which is a great thing, but knowing when to end is important in my eyes.

Movie Review – I Am Number Four

Movie Review – I Am Number Four

A lot of big Hollywood films these days are sequels, remakes, or adaptations of popular books and comic books.

Movie Review – Never Let Me Go

Movie Review – Never Let Me Go

When I first saw the poster for this film it seemed like any other romantic drama that normally wouldn’t appeal to me in the ‘am I willing to spend my own money to see it’ kind of way.

Movie Review – Blue Valentine

When viewing romantic comedies you pretty much know what you’re in for, but with romantic dramas the stories could go so many different ways. They could go the overly romantic way or the overly dramatic way and many other degrees in between.

Movie Review – Get Low

Movie Review – Get Low

Anytime I see a movie with Bill Murray’s name in it I can’t help but instantly think it’s not only going to be funny but pretty damn good as well, as he’s one of those actors who doesn’t seem to ‘sell out’ when picking projects.

Movie Review – Love Birds

Movie Review – Love Birds

Like I’ve said in a few reviews recently I’ve seen a lot of the new kiwi films recently, not all though, and sadly, in my opinion, they have been either bad or flawed in many ways. Not to mention they have mostly been dark and dreary along the lines of so many past New Zealand films.

Movie Review – No Strings Attached

Movie Review – No Strings Attached

When I first saw the trailer for ‘No Strings Attached’, nothing in me wanted to go and see it - not because it looked like a very typical chick flick, but more because it just didn’t look like it was going to bring anything new or interesting to the romantic comedy genre.

Movie Review – Conviction

Movie Review – Conviction

As with most of my press screenings, I try to go into them not knowing anything about the film so that I can be surprised about what I see. With ‘Conviction’, however, for some reason I found out who was starring in it, which can sometimes be a good thing or a bad thing.

Movie Review – The Fighter

Movie Review – The Fighter

Mark Wahlberg is one of those actors who I don’t think gets the true support of the crowds as being a ‘great’ actor.
