The Kiwi film Older has been popping in and out of my industry periphery over the past few years. Given the size of the NZ film and TV industry, the film’s progress has often popped up on my Facebook feed and a few people I either know or know of have been involved in it in some capacity. So I was del...



Jumanji: The Next Blu-ray

If you haven’t seen Jumanji: The Next Level and want a good time, see it. I loved it. Not necessarily as good as the first, but it at least adds something new and they did it well. In fact, if you loved the first one, you might as well get the sequel on blu-ray because it is a BALL. The film is fun, l...

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 ...

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...

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Saskia – The dream review team is back together!  Ashton Brown as: Reviewer who has seen Suicide Squad – thought he liked it at the time of viewing as a brainless popcorn flick but as time went on realised how terrible it was –  but is still pumped for Birds of Prey. Saskia as: Review...



Bad Boys For Life

You spin my head right round, right round!” The Bad Boys are back in 2020 with enough sweeping 360° shots to give you vertigo. Twenty five years since the original Bad Boys, Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) return a bit older and maybe a bit wiser. Having been in the game for so...



Jumanji: The Next Level

The first time I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, I was hesitant. “It’s really good!” said Di, but did I believe her? It had Jack Black in it, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I mean, I like Karen Gillan, but overall it just looked like a stupid, unfunny movie. Long story ...

The Gentlemen: More Fun than Should be Allowed

So here’s me trying to convince my friend to come see The Gentlemen with me. I send him the trailer link accompanied by this message, “I love this director but I honestly, I can’t understand too much of the plot.” Friend writes back. “Oh wow, that IS my type of movie.” Th...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #3 – The Force is Strong With This One

I mentioned before that the guys who do Robot Chicken get it when it comes to Star Wars because they’re obvious fanboys. Well, wait till I tell you about the 2009 movie Fanboys… Unlike the Big Bang Theory which just says something that nerds do, adds an unnecessary laugh track, and calls it comedy, Fanboys,...



Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #2 – That Was Pretty Wizard

Now here is a bunch of nerds that get it. I saw a screening of the second Robot Chicken Star Wars episode at Armageddon Expo in 2010 (I think) when Seth Green and the others were guests. It was tremendously fun being surrounded by nerds who were enjoying themselves as much as I was, and who often started la...

Charlie’s Angels

Was 11 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2000)? YES. Was 30 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2019)? YES. Has my taste in movies adapted and matured over the years? I LIKE TO THINK SO. Just like 2000 Charlie’s Angels was made for it’s time (possibly the most 2000ish...
