  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Dec, 2014

    This is an amazing film, a true must see. The story is great, the acting is great and the film looks beautiful. This reminded me a lot of "Forrest Gump", which I loved as well.
    If you are looking for a fun, feel good film that isn't overly soppy and sentimental, watch this. You will not be disappointed.

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★½ Watched 23 Dec, 2014

    Finally got around to watching this and I have to say after everyone said it was the best of the series, I was pretty disappointed. Don't get me wrong, its an enjoyable film, but not what I was hoping.
    I was expecting the whole dual timeline thing to work better, things that happened in the past directly influencing things happening in the future, but that didn't really happen, in fact, the whole future part of it felt a little tacked…

  • 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.

  • Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014


    Never really being a Transformers fan (I missed the toy craze by about 5 years), I enjoyed the 1st film, big, dumb and loud, but fun. Then the last 2 came out and my interest wained, kinda crap. But next to this one, the other 3 are works of art.
    This is is the biggest piece of crap I think I have ever sat through. Michael Bay needs to be stopped, he is spending so much money on these pointless…
