Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

Movie Review – From Up On Poppy Hill

Movie Review – From Up On Poppy Hill

People are funny sometimes, and not in a good way. They see that an animated foreign film is playing at a festival, and without doing any research about it, they drag their young kids along.

These days’ documentaries connect and talk to me more than any other genre. I see some amazing films in any given year, and without a doubt, documentaries often make up more than half of them.

Movie Review – Amour

When you’re reading the programme for a film festival, and you see that a film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, you pretty much automatically mark it down as a film to see. This is exactly what I did when I came across this one, and I even decided to read nothing more about the film.

Movie Review – The Shinning

Movie Review – The Shinning

Watching classic films on DVD is one thing, but when you get the chance to see them, maybe for the first time, on the big screen, you can’t turn that down! So that’s exactly what I did when I saw this movie was on the NZIFF schedule!

A good way to get the day started at a film festival is to see a light hearted film, be it narrative, or a documentary.

Movie Review – Bonjour Tristesse

Movie Review – Bonjour Tristesse

I’ve been in a nostalgic mood of late when it comes to films, but it’s mainly because I’ve decided to make my way through those top 100 lists you often see in film magazines.

Film Review: Dark Knight Rises

Film Review: Dark Knight Rises

 I was always looking forward to the finale of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, despite being annoyed at Batman's morals. Even if the lore wasn't entirely true to the comics, the dark themes that came through were definitely tributes to the Batman universe.

DVD Review: Gangland S6

DVD Review: Gangland S6

Gangland Season 6 is about, yep, gangs in the US. This season covers 11 different gangs across different states in America, and looks at the history, mindset, tattoes, structure (or lack-there-of) and activities of these gangs.
