‘Like Mike’ is all about telling it how it is! So from me you’ll get nothing but straight to the point, open and honest film/DVD, music, restaurant and adventure tourism reviews, 150 words or less or your money back guaranteed! Not that you’re paying for them, but you get the point!

So if you want to know if that film currently screening at the cinemas is worth seeing, that DVD sitting on the video store shelf is worth buying or renting, if that new CD is bad-ass, or if that restaurant or adventure tourism spot that’s just opened down the road is good value, then I’ll give you 150 words to help make up your mind, one way or the other!

So have a read, share, like, and just spread the word to help the people know what’s what! Even this profile was 150 words or less! Bam!

For a chance to win any of the DVD's, Blu-Ray's or CD's I review, e-mail to go in the draw!


  • Movie Review – Paranormal Activity 4

    'Paranormal Activity 4' was...well, it was...hmm...ohh, I know...'Paranormal Activity 4' was the 4th instalment in a horror franchise. Yip, that sums it up perfectly!

  • Movie Review – Taken 2

    'Taken 2' was exactly what I thought it was going to be, and that was something that would pale in comparison to the original, and I was right. It had so much to live up to, and I was just going to be happy if it was at least a decent film in its own right, which I’m glad to say it was.

  • Movie Review – Searching For Sugar Man

    'Searching For Sugar Man' was such a heart warming and tear inducing film, and proves to me once again that not only are docos awesome, but that creating art is the greatest thing a human can do, be it in any form or any way.

  • Movie Review – Dredd

    Being a massive '2000AD' fan, means I'm basically a default Judge Dredd fan, with him 3rd on my list of fave story lines behind Rouge Trooper and ABC Warriors.

  • Movie Review – Looper

    I’m a big fan of large scale sci-fi films, but they can be one of the hardest genres to pull off, with only the ‘Star Trek’ reboot doing it near perfectly in recent times.

  • Movie Review – Two Little Boys

    Robert Sarkies has a big reputation in the New Zealand film industry, but interestingly enough, he’s only made 3 features in 13 years, which says a lot about how hard it is to make films here, as renowned overseas directors tend to put out features every 2-3 years.

  • Movie Review – The Watch

    When I first saw the trailer for this film I thought it looked awesome! But then I saw the second trailer and realised they had been pulling the covers over our heads with the first trailer.

  • Movie Review – Your Sister’s Sister

    I’ve missed many films at this year’s International Film Festival, and this film was one of them.

  • Movie Review – On The Road

    I missed lots of great films at this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival, but thankfully I get invited to press screenings for those films when they get general releases.

  • Movie Review – Expendables 2

    I was a fan of the first ‘Expendables’, but though it took itself a little too serious and could have done with more clever tongue in cheek jokes.
