Who Ya Gonna Call?

Like any reboot of a popular franchise, Ghostbusters garnered a lot of attention even before its first trailer. In a similar vein to last year’s Mad Max reboot, most of the commentary detracted from what could be an interesting conversation in favour of taking a detour through the 1950s to collectively wond...

Ice Age: Collision Course

When I texted a friend to ask her if she wanted to come see Ice Age: Collision Course with me, her first reply was “What? There’s another Ice Age?”. Her reply made me laugh, but it didn’t surprise me. I remember seeing the very first installment of Ice Age in the cinema when I was six-years-old. I loved it,...

A Month of Sundays

A Month of Sundays is charming, awkward, sweet, laugh-out-loud funny, and slow.

Because boy, can th...

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Based on the Barry Crump novel Wild Pork and Watercress, Hunt for the Wilderpeople is the most delightful movie I have seen in a long time! Both wild and safe, adult and childish, director Taika Waititi has spun together this story with the perfect humour for such a Kiwi adventure. He takes us through some ...

Ant Man

Amazing PR strategy and Paul Rudd aside, I tried very hard to keep my expectations for Ant Man low. It was like when you’re 7 and you’ve hinted and begged for that particular Barbie caravan with the fold down BBQ in the back and you’re 98% sure your parents are getting it for you, but you don’t want to star...
