  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jun, 2015

    This movie is just all kinds of nutty insanity and it is amazing for it. The first half and hour is completely exhausting, the action sequences are mindblowing andd so much fun.
    Tom Hardy is Max, he has taken the mantle from Mel Gibson and has run with it. The rest of the cast are perfect and having too much fun for words.
    There is a nice mix of phyiscal effects and digital effects that wirks well. The digital effects…

    Chappie 2015

    ★★½ Added

    Having worked on this, I was really looking forward to seeing it. As always with Blomkamp's stuff, it looks amazing, the Chappie character is flawless, mostly due to Copley's performance.

    The Devil's Rock 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 16 May, 2012

    Being a kiwi, I love to see our industry doing well and I really enjoyed this. Its a good story, well acted and directed (good job Paul).
    It is very atmospheric with a great location and looks great. The effects are good, considering the budget and its great to see the use of physical over digital.

    So, overall, a good old fashioned horror film with some really nice touches and some fun references to other films and literature.

  • Black Dynamite

    Black Dynamite 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Dec, 2014

    This is probably the best parody film I've seen since the original "Hotshots!". It is the perfect parody of the Grindhouse Blackspotation films of the early 1970's, it looks and feels exactly like one of those films.
    This is a must see if you love comedy and grindhouse films, you will laugh out loud.
