Night School

Kevin Hart is an extremely likable guy. The first movie I remember seeing him in was my favourite film from the Scary Movie franchise – Scary Movie 3. Flicking through his IMDB page he has certainly had an interesting career (interesting being the key word – Epic Movie?! You’re better than that ...

Johnny English Strikes Again

I’m going to do things a little bit backwards here, and give you my score out of 10 straight away. For me, Johnny English Strikes Again is absolutely and unequivocally a 5/10! Because I can’t in good conscience lean towards either good or bad on this one. There’s an internal battle going on here, and it’s t...

A Simple Favour

It’s hard not to go into A Simple Favour and compare it to Gone Girl. I urge you not to, if you can resist, because although it does seem to follow several plot points from Gone Girl – A Simple Favour is it’s own confusing blend of genres. However, it’s too hard not to… so I am...

Waste of time

The Crappytime Murders

Ah the late 80s. The perfect time to use what is traditionally a children’s medium – puppetry – and twist it on it’s head to push boundaries of what we are used to seeing puppets do. Sex, swearing, drugs! Amazing. Wait? It’s 2018 and Peter Jackson’s Meet The Feebles came out nearly 3...

Mega Time Squad is a Kiwi-made science fiction/heist comedy directed by Tim Van Dammen starring Jonny Brugh, Hetty Gaskil Hahn and Anton Tennant (who happens to look exactly like Tom Cruise in this film). The story follows Johnny, a young criminal living in Thames, New Zealand, who is caught up with a gang ...

The Spy Who Dumped Me

Ahhh McKinnon, you’ve done it again. Yes, that was a weak re-purposing of the McCain commercial catch-phrase. “What’s that?” you ask? Please don’t embarrass us both with that question. I went into The Spy Who Dumped Me with fairly low expectations. I knew I’d at least enj...

Book Club

I once heard my mum talking to her friends about 50 Shades of Grey and she said, “There are two types of people that read this book; those that liked it and aren’t getting any, and those that hated it and are. And let me tell you, I HATED it!” And that’s basically what this movie is about. Let me begin by f...

Hotel Transylvania 3

It’s round 3 for the Hotel Transylvania franchise and boy has it returned with a fresh coat of paint. While I enjoyed both of the first movies, I never revisited them after seeing them at the cinema. So let’s have a recap shall we? The first film, Dracula’s motivation is to prevent his teenage daughte...

Great

Deadpool 2

I loooooooved the first Deadpool movie (as, I think, a lot of people did). Which means I probably approached Deadpool 2 with unfairly high expectations. It definitely didn’t disappoint, but perhaps unsurprisingly, it also didn’t surpass its predecessor. Tough to beat an origin story, especially when it’s br...

Game Night

It’s love at first sight when Annie (Rachel McAdams) and Max (Jason Bateman), both extremely competitive game enthusiasts, lock eyes during a pub quiz. The well matched pair settle down into a quiet, suburban life, complete with obligatory regular game nights with a group of like minded friends. When Max’s ...

Flippin' great

Lady Bird

Lady Bird is the most positively reviewed film of all time. That is to say it holds the record for the longest unspoiled streak of positive reviews as determined by Rotten Tomatoes, overtaking the last record holder, Toy Story 2. Greta Gerwig’s debut film (she is credited as the sole writer and director) is...

Pitch Perfect 3

Get ready Pitches! The Barden Bellas are back in the rocking finale to the Pitch Perfect trilogy. The girls have moved in different directions since college and their monumental win at the World Championships but their adult lives aren’t quite living up to expectations. When they’re given the opportunity to...
