Movie Review – Ted

Movie Review – Ted

When I first saw the trailer for ‘Ted’ a few months back I thought a perfect storm of comedy was converging.

DVD Review – God Vs Satan, The Final Battle

DVD Review – God Vs Satan, The Final Battle

It’s been a slow month for DVD releases and this was another of The History Channel shows I picked as I scrapped the barrel, and as with last week’s review, I just hoped this wasn’t going to be overdramatized as that one was.

DVD Review – Arrietty

DVD Review – Arrietty

I’ve been lucky enough to review a few Studio Ghibli films this month, and ‘Arrietty’ is one I tried to catch at last year’s New Zealand International Film Festival, but wasn’t able to fit it into my packed schedule.

DVD Review – 7 Signs Of The Apocalypse

DVD Review – 7 Signs Of The Apocalypse

This month was a bit sparse with my choices for DVDs to review, so I decided to pick a couple based on biblical prophecies, and this DVD was the first one for me to check out.

DVD Review – The Kennedy Detail

DVD Review – The Kennedy Detail

Often when I review TV shows they have to be really good for me to hold onto the DVD afterwards, instead of selling it. So when I picked this DVD to watch, I pretty much knew it would be a solid one to review, but was going to hit my ‘To Sell’ pile pretty quickly.

Blu-ray Review – Howl’s Moving Castle

Blu-ray Review – Howl’s Moving Castle

When it comes to Studio Ghibli, I’m a fan of their more straight forward films, rather than their trippy confusing ones, with ‘Grave Of The Fireflies’ one of my all time favourite animated films.

Blu-ray Review – Tales From Earthsea

Blu-ray Review – Tales From Earthsea

'Tales From Earthsea' was damn good, and I feel it's one of the better Studio Ghibli films. I think the reason I connected with it more was its grounding in reality. Sure it deals with magic, dragons and wizards, but it does it in a 'Game Of Thrones' kind of way.

Movie Review – The Amazing Spiderman

Movie Review – The Amazing Spiderman

No matter how you look at it, 'The Amazing Spiderman' is going to be measured up against the first trilogy, and for many reasons, from the storytelling elements to the actors themselves.

Movie Review – Ice Age 4

Movie Review – Ice Age 4

I really enjoyed the first two 'Ice Age' films, but felt they had jumped-the-shark with the third, though despite that it’s one of the highest grossing animated films of all time! Go figure!

Movie Review – Snow White And The Huntsman

Movie Review – Snow White And The Huntsman

With two Snow White films this year, including ‘Mirror Mirror’, one would think it might be overkill. Luckily both seemed to take very different routes, as despite being based on the same story, they play out very differently.
