What Men Want

What Men Want is probably to not see this movie. LOLOLOLOL. I’m sorry. Let’s be honest, none of us were expecting this to be a good one. You’ve seen the trailer right? Yes. You know what you’re getting yourself into. I sat myself down in that theatre – knowing it wasn’t m...

Happy Death Day 2U

Ashton – I actually thought this movie started pretty strongly. Following a minor character from the original film, on the same day that it all went down. It immediately established a decent tone (comedy over horror) and I was pretty intrigued about it all. Sadly that was about it for me. A small leve...

Stan & Ollie

Laurel & Hardy are one of the iconic comedy duos that despite passing away well before my time is still a comedy duo I have always understood to have shaped the way comedy is today. Like The Two Ronnies, Monty Python and more recently Key & Peele and SNL, they are an iconic sketch comedy team. Risin...

Office Uprising

The zombie film industry has certainly had its fair share of horror/comedy offerings. When done correctly, this mix of black comedy soars and we find ourselves crying with laughter and horror as ordinary people deal with the extraordinary situation of the living dead. Shaun of the Dead is arguably the Godfa...

Sink or Swim

When I started to watch films and review them, I said to myself “don’t become one of thooosee people that watches a French film with English subtitles and then tells everyone about it.” And yet, here I am. Reading the title ‘Sink or Swim’ one could easily assume this is a film about drowning in your own pre...

Vice

A few years ago, when director Adam McKay announced his star studded drama about the financial crisis I was super intrigued. It was a change of direction for this hilarious writer/director who had brought us such genius comedic feasts as Talladega Nights, Anchorman and perhaps my favourite comedy of all tim...

Bumblebee: Did we need another Transformers movie? Yes we did.

I’m a Transformers pleb. But I really shouldn’t be. I mean, I grew up with the cartoons, played with the toys and have sat through all the recent movies. And yet, somehow I haven’t absorbed very much beyond the fact that there are Autobots and Decepticons and for some reason, they just don...

Second Act

Do you hate cheesy chick flicks? Well I can save you some time right now and tell you that this is NOT the movie for you. If you don’t absolutely love the awesome terribleness of your stock-standard chick flick, then there is nothing redeemable I can tell you about Second Act. However, if Maid in Manh...

Ralph Breaks the Internet

You and I step into Tapper’s together. We sit down and wave the barman over. He asks us our orders before handing us a root beer each. We both smell it in disgust because it’s root beer and so I offer you a ginger beer, spiced with cinnamon for the festive season. “So,” you pop the l...

The Breaker Uppers

NZ comedy films have such a specific style about them, a tone, a feel, that is so intrinsically Kiwi. Just like the films of Taika Waititi or an episode of Flight of the Conchords, The Breaker Upperers (written and directed by Madeleine Sami & Jackie van Beek) is no different. From the moment I saw the ...

Ant-Man and The Wasp – Get it for the Marvel geek in your life

I didn’t actually get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp at the cinema, so I was very excited to get my hands on a 4K copy to review! For a run-down of what we thought of the movie itself, head here! I (like our reviewer Ben) absolutely loved the movie and Ant-Man is also my favourite Marvel super-hero…...

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 ...
