    Gutting to have such shit friends and family.

    Dawn Raid


    A cool, heart warming and heart breaking tale of the unique Dawn Raid Entertainment; South Auckland music and music adjacent business empire of the 2000s! The camera loves everyone, and no one wastes a word. I’d like to believe I’m in at least one of the crowd shots. It was such an epic time in NZ hip hop.

    Top Gun


    I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.

    If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.

    Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol


    What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
