Blu-Ray Review – Restrepo

 Blu-Ray Review – Restrepo

I’ve always been a big lover of documentaries, but I would say this year has been the year they have taken over as my number one favourite genre.

DVD Review – The Universe, Season 5

 DVD Review – The Universe, Season 5

I’m a big fan of science and technology, even though I’m not smart enough to understand how it all works, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to work it out in my own way.

Movie Review – Buck

 Movie Review – Buck

‘Buck’ was one of the many great films I missed out on at the New Zealand International Film Festival this year and so was really excited to get my press invite for a media screening for its general cinema release.

Movie Review – Attack The Block

Movie Review – Attack The Block

It’s not often a film comes out that seems to perfectly meld two very different and interesting genres. There have been a lot of alien films of late, and as ever, there are lots of gritty and more personnel stories about the youth growing up in various areas of the world in abject poverty.

Movie Review – Drive

 Movie Review – Drive

Like most film lovers and I would like to think other film reviewers as well, I love to watch trailers of upcoming films. In fact, though rather ironically, I avoid reviews like the plague, and all I really want to know of a film before seeing it is what I see in the trailer.

DVD Review - The Company Men

DVD Review - The Company Men

I first saw this film at a press screening at the cinema earlier in the year and it very quickly jumped to the top, or very near the top, of my list of favourite films of the year.

Blu-Ray Review - Metropolis

Blu-Ray Review - Metropolis

When it comes to ‘old school’ films, I’m a believer that the modern era film viewer can only really enjoy films from the 50’s onwards, and even then that might be a stretch and the 60’s might be a safer bet.

Movie Review – Beginners

Movie Review – Beginners

As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I missed a lot of films at the International Film Festival this year, even though I did pack in 29 films!

Movie Review – Senna

Movie Review – Senna

Well, ask any of my friends, and they will tell you I’m a big Formula 1 fan! Or maybe they won’t, as I also don’t exactly go around wearing F1 sport jackets or bragging about the races on the weekend. But trust me, I am.

Movie Review - The Help

Movie Review - The Help

 I really do love film! My feelings for movies, I’m sure, is the same for some people with their love for books, not saying I’m not a book fan either.
