Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.” “What a bunch of a-holes.” So yeah, that about sums it up. Of course the ladies-in-charge will never accept a two sentence quote as a review so allow me to elaborate. Normally when I review something, I like to watch the thing I’m reviewing and then start ...

The Mummy

I was excited for two brand names: The Mummy and Tom Cruise so how could I miss this one on the big screen. A movie with a head start into my good books is rare for me. I really enjoyed the fun adventure of the first one. It was funny and the effects were amazing for the day. The perfect big stupid movie yo...

Wonder Woman

Louise Beuvink and Lucy Noonan went to the New Zealand premiere of Wonder Woman. Lucy is a comic book nerd and Louise is a filthy casual. Here is their review. Lucy: So… that was amazing. I don’t even know where to begin. Louise: I’ll start with a background. Wonder Woman is the first live-action feat...

Colossal

If you want something a bit off-beat, Colossal might meet your needs in this old-school-monster-meet-dysfunctional-people movie. Unemployed and alcoholic Gloria (ANNE HATHAWAY) gets thrown out of boyfriend Tim’s apartment after one too many times of late night partying. In a haze, she returns to her s...

The Fate of the Furious

I enjoyed this movie. Mind you, I am a Fast and the Furious fan.  I haven’t missed a single movie from the franchise. Although I am not a car guru, I appreciate great car races and action (I have a dad and a younger brother that are car junkies). Being the 8th one in the series, they had to add something bi...

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Do you know what makes you who you are? What makes you human? Is it the heart beating in your chest or your lungs filling and compressing as air rushes in and out of them. It could be argued it’s your brain, but your brain interprets sensory information from your body. If fed entirely different sensory info...

The Great Wall

Come on -Come on now! None of you thought this was gonna be good, right? You just want to know how bad it is… Well, it’s bad. Where on the terrible scale does ‘The Great Wall’, fall? For me the type of bad I categorize this movie into is ‘Bewilderingly Bad”. You can only hope when you go and see a genuinely...

Assassin’s Creed The Movie

Movies based on video games have a reputation for being cheesy, often low budget affairs with bad acting and even worse dialogue. As a massive fan of the Assassin’s Creed series of games (I may have an Ezio costume in my closet…) I was waiting with baited breath to find out whether the movie would deliver o...

The Accountant

Since watching The Accountant, the more I think about it, the more interesting it gets. Ben Affleck is Christian Wolff, an accountant for the worst of the worst, mobs, gangs and big time criminals. Next level genius at searching through screeds of numbers and paper work. Also, he could kill you. Playing a h...

Great

Doctor Strange

Marvel are really getting good at fine-tuning their movies. Doctor Strange feels like it has all the best elements of previous Marvel films with a few new and exciting editions thrown in. It is very obviously an origin story. Prepare yourself for a lot of blatant explaining of everything that Doctor Strange...

The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan seems to have built a legendary reputation for itself, mostly involving Alexander Skarsgård and his impeccable shirt-removing skills. As much of an asset as this was, I was keen to find out if there was more to this movie than meets the eye. Starting off, I was pleasantly surprised to f...
