‘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 – The Dark Knight Rises

    No matter how you look at it, the shooting in Colorado will, and has, not only put a dampener on peoples excitement about the release of this film, but will bring up many questions about the connection between violence and films. But, that’s for another time and place.

  • New Zealand International Film Festival 2012 – Saturday, 21st July

    Shock Head Soul, The Angel's Share, and Bernie, a trifecta of great films to get my festival started!
    Shock Head Soul

  • Movie Review – Bernie

    My 4th, and last film of the day of the NZIFF, was one I picked purely because of the star of the film, Jack Black! He’s one actor that can hardly do any wrong, and even when he’s doing wrong, he’s still good for a few laughs.

  • Movie Review – The Angel’s Share

    My second film of the NZIFF, and third film of the day, was ‘The Angel’s Share’, and it was one I knew very little about. In fact, all I knew about it was the picture that advertised it, which was of the four main characters wearing kilts.

  • Movie Review – Shock Head Soul

    The New Zealand International Film Festival has begun, and my first film was 'Shock Head Soul'. It was introduced with a well made kiwi short film about a shocking medical practice I never knew existed in this country.

  • DVD Review – Bobby Fischer Against The World

    I got to see some great documentaries at the New Zealand international film festival last year, and this film was one of them.

  • Movie Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

    When I first heard about this film I thought it sounded pretty cool, and when I saw the first trailer those initial feelings were locked in place.

  • 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

    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

    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.
