Movie Review – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Movie Review – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Going into 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' I wasn't expecting much as the trailer looked average and the main kid seemed annoying.

Movie Review – Vincent Wants To Sea

Movie Review – Vincent Wants To Sea

I often go into my press screenings knowing nothing about the films, so when the film started and I realised it was a German dramaedy, I was chuffed, as I haven’t seen a decent German film in a while!

Movie Review – Moneyball

Movie Review – Moneyball

With the Academy awards fast approaching, there was really only one film left I hadn’t seen that was getting a decent amount of buzz, and that was this film. So with it now in cinemas, I rushed along to check it out before the award ceremony itself hits us in a few days time.

Movie Review – The Ides Of March

Movie Review – The Ides Of March

What’s that saying about not judging a book by its cover? I guess the same applies for a movie title, as this film didn’t exactly have a title that grabbed me right off the bat. By the end of the film though I was simply left me in awe!

DVD Review – The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

DVD Review – The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

Being a film maker myself, and always fighting the ‘system’ when trying to raise cash for them, one thing that always crosses your mind is raising cash through sponsors.

Movie Review – Safe House

Movie Review – Safe House

I’ve gotta say I love me a bit of Denzel Washington, but I’m also very aware that it depends which one shows up for filming. Sometimes the directors give him too much freedom, and he can often go over the top.

Movie Review – The Artist

Movie Review – The Artist

Often gimmicky films come out that get a lot of attention. So when I heard about ‘The Artist’, that was both Black & White and silent, and was getting lots of buzz, I had a sneaking feeling that it may be more of a gimmick film rather than an actual solid bit of cinema.

DVD Review – Page One, Inside The New York Times

DVD Review – Page One, Inside The New York Times

I missed many great films at the 2011 NZIFF, and this was one of them. Having a major interest in both alternative media and writing in general, this was one film I thought could be both important and eye opening.

Movie Review – Young Adult

Movie Review – Young Adult

Sitting down to watch 'Young Adult', I had mixed feelings, as I'd been hearing lots of negative things about it. It was from the chick who wrote 'Juno' and the dude who directed 'Up In The Air', so that was at least worth something.

Movie Review – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Movie Review – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Having loved the original trilogy of films, based off the massively successful book series, meant it was always going to take a very special director to make me interested in a Hollywood remake. So when I heard that the master David Fincher was doing it, I was really excited!
