Movie Review – The Orator

Movie Review – The Orator

Now, it’s not every day that you get to see a film that is a ‘first’ for a country as ‘The Orator’ is. Why is it a first? Well it’s the first every feature film to come out of Samoa! So, really, this isn’t just a film, it’s also history.

Movie Review – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2

Well, after eight movies and 10 years, the film versions of Harry Potter have finally come to an end with the second instalment of the final movie in the series, The Deathly Hollows Part 2.

Blu-Ray Review – WW2 in HD

Over the years there have been many documentary series on wars, especially WW2, and they have tried to repackage the same war, but in a different way.
