Movie Review – A Separation

Movie Review – A Separation

When a film wins the best foreign film prize at the Academy Awards you have to think that it’s not only going to be good, but great! So when I got my invite to the press screening for the 2012 winner, I was quick to say yes!

Movie Review – American Reunion

Movie Review – American Reunion

Can’t believe it’s been so many years since I first sat down to watch the first ‘American Pie’ movie! Also can’t believe they are still making them!

Movie Review – Battleship

Movie Review – Battleship

‘Battleship’ had one of those trailers that made you excited, though made you think it could be all show and no substance. Well, despite it being an over the top patriotic propaganda showpiece for the US Navy, it was a decent film with some pretty cool set pieces!

Movie Review – The Pirates

Movie Review – The Pirates

Trailers can be fickle things, as they can range from representing the film perfectly, completely selling you a false promise of a good film, and even sometimes fully underselling the awesomeness that is the film.

Movie Review – Mirror Mirror

Movie Review – Mirror Mirror

I love the director of this film as he’s got a very unique and awesome visual style for his films, but the trailer made it look like balls! And that’s not a good thing! It also made it look like it was for little kids only, so I had many reservations sitting down to see it.

DVD Review – Welcome Home, Soldier Boys

DVD Review – Welcome Home, Soldier Boys

My first review DVD of the week was 'Welcome Home, Soldier Boys', which I had never heard of before. The back of the case said it had been 'lost' for 30 years, so that just made it intriguing, so I marked it down and looked forward to not knowing what I was in for!

Movie Review – Titanic 3D

Movie Review – Titanic 3D

I remember seeing ‘Titanic’ for the first time 15 years ago and I loving it, but for some reason I had never seen it since. So it’s rather ironic that the very next time I saw it was at the red carpet New Zealand premiere of its 3D re-release!

Movie Review – Aliens

Movie Review – Aliens

I recently saw the re-release of ‘Titanic’ 3D, and it was awesome, but it got me thinking about James Cameron and his other films.

Movie Review – Wrath Of The Titans

Movie Review – Wrath Of The Titans

I remember seeing the first Titans film and really looking forward to it as I loved the trailer! Instead I came out disappointed, and I wasn’t fully sure why. So when I heard they were making a second one, and were going to fix what was wrong with the first, I was excited!

DVD Review – The Future

DVD Review – The Future

The 2011 New Zealand International Film Festival was nearly a year ago, but some films that screened are still making their way to the New Zealand big and small screen officially, and 'The Future' is one of them.
