Movie Review – Cowboys and Aliens

Movie Review – Cowboys and Aliens

I’ve said before this year, due to the fact I’ve reviewed so many of them, that this has been the year of the alien film as there really have been a lot of them, and there’s more to come in the remaining four or so months of the year!

DVD Review – Surviving D Day

DVD Review – Surviving D Day

So often when it comes to documentaries, or movies, about the various wars, you always wonder how they can keep treading over the same subjects while keeping them fresh, and there can only be so many stories to tell over and over again.

Movie Review – Mr Poppers Penguins

Movie Review – Mr Poppers Penguins

I’ve been a big fan of Jim Carrey over the years and first saw him in his ‘In Living Colour’ days, with his martial arts instructor character always sticking in my mind, and when I then saw him in ‘Ace Ventura’ I was blown away that it was the same guy!

Movie Review – Captain America

Movie Review – Captain America

As the people who follow my reviews will know I’m a big comic book fan and have been since I was a kid.

Movie Review – Kung Fu Panda 2

Movie Review – Kung Fu Panda 2

The first ‘Kung Fu Panda’ film never sold me in the trailer and hence I never saw it at the cinema, which I ended up regretting after I saw the film finally on DVD.

Movie Review – Wu Xia

Movie Review – Wu Xia

One thing that you tend to get with Hong Kong action, or maybe action films in general, is that the storylines and characters come secondary to the action itself. Be it amazing fighting sequences or massive chase scenes, these are what people come for when they buy their ticket to the films.

Movie Review – The First Grader

Movie Review – The First Grader

A friend of mine wanted to see this film as part of the 2011 New Zealand International Film Festival, and if not for him mentioning it, I may not have marked it down on my press list of films I hoped to catch during the festival.

Movie Review – Mrs Carey’s Concert

Movie Review – Mrs Carey’s Concert

I’m a big music fan and there aren’t many genres I don’t listen to, with the exception of dance techno music, which I think is best left in the club. I mean, how do you listen to that stuff chilling on a long drive with no drugs in your system?

Movie Review – Green Lantern

Movie Review – Green Lantern

I’m a big comic book fan but I’ve always been a Marvel fan over DC. Having said that though, when it comes to comic book movies I don’t mind so much where the source material comes from as often the best ones I’ve seen are actually from independent comic publishers.

Movie Review – Bridesmaids

Movie Review – Bridesmaids

I’ve felt a bit lost with films recently, as I’ve racked up over sixty films at the cinema so far this year, but in the last three weeks I’ve only seen one! But this week was back on track with what looked like two good films and a press screening to attend.
