You’ll have your Knives Out to get this Bluray

But only because the movie is so good. Knives Out is my second favourite movie of 2019. Second only to the magnificence that was Jojo Rabbit (another glorious film that you should definitely see if you have yet to!) If you want to know what kind of film Knives Out is, the opening scene gives you the most pe...

Guns Akimbo

If you really hate the male genitalia then this is the movie for you! Also, trolls. A cautionary tale for the online trolling. That’s what Miles would tell you. In Guns Akimbo, Daniel Radcliffe plays a wimpy game developer who likes dabbling in online trolling. But one day, he trolled the wrong… Troll. And ...

Charlie’s Angels (Blu-Ray)

So 2019’s Charlie’s Angels didn’t fare so well under the critics’ spotlight. Some called it mediocre, thoughtless and just plain bad. But I, for one, LOVED it. In fact, I’m probably going to cop a lot of flack for saying this, but hell it’s true. I’m not ashamed. It...

8 Reasons you need to add Frozen 2 to your collection

The highly anticipated sequel to one of Disney’s greatest creations, Frozen, is now available to add to your collection! It achieved the biggest opening weekend earnings of all time for an animated movie, beating out Toy Story 4. While Frozen 2 hasn’t been critically received as well as it’...

Meh

Hope Gap

Hope Gap is like Broadchurch if it was a movie about divorce. Starring Bill Nighy, Annette Bening and Josh O’Connor, it’s set against the beautiful backdrop of the English coastline. Nighy and Bening play a couple married three decades and seemingly rubbing each other up the wrong way the whole time. Their ...

The Current War and the beauty of watching a well-made film

I’ve always been a Benedict Cumberbatch fan, and ever since we saw him at Wellington Armageddon last year, I’ve taken a bit of a liking to Nicholas Hoult. So yes, I was pretty keen for The Current War. The film opens up to the sultry tones of Benedict Cumberbatch’s cringey American accent. I writhed a bit w...

Great

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (the Blu-ray Edition)

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was one of the best movies of 2019. An absolutely worthy sequel to its fantastical magical 2014 predecessor, worth it alone for Angelina Jolie & Elle Fanning’s stellar performances. Especially all the special Maleficent/Aurora bonding moments. On the off-chance you still hav...

The Invisible Man

I’m a ‘The Invisible Man’ noob! I haven’t read the book and I haven’t seen the original film series. Maybe I’m like you… or maybe your cursor is already moving up to the top right of your screen to silence my noob words and opinions. If that’s the case, thank ...

Sonic the Hedgehog makes a dash for your heart

We all know the dark history of video game movie adaptations. There are only a sparse few that I’ve genuinely enjoyed as a film, most notably Detective Pikachu in recent memory. Fortunately for Sonic the Hedgehog, it too has made that prestigious achievement. Yep. I enjoyed this one. It’s not as...

Come to Daddy

Black comedy is a genre that Kiwis have been successfully pulling off since the early years of Peter Jackson. There is always something about the style of humour the genre lends itself to that goes hand-in-hand with the dryness of New Zealand wit. The NZ Film Commission made a wise decision in supporting fi...

Why you should already own Parasite on DVD or Blu-ray.

I just watched Parasite. My mind is blown. You know when there’s a movie out that everyone is raving about and it wins awards and people are like OMG on social media…and you still haven’t seen it. Then you’re hesitant to watch it because it’s been way too hyped and surely it ca...

The Grudge

For the longest time there has been only one truly scary way to breath in and The Grudge is the movie that taught us. It is also known that the coolest thing to say is the original, Ju-on: The Grudge is the bestest of them all, but I actually found the American version scarier. Even with Sarah Michelle Gell...
