Chewing Gum (episodes 1-3, 2015)

Posted 1:11pm Sunday 21st May 2017 by Saskia Bunce-Rath

Rating: 3/5 I have… mixed feelings. On paper it all seems great, yet I quit watching after three episodes due to the immense second hand embarrassment I got. Chewing Gum is a British comedy that frankly discusses sexuality, with a diverse cast, set on an estate in England. It’s Read more...

Personal Shopper (2016)

Posted 12:32pm Sunday 14th May 2017 by Alex Campbell-Hunt

Rating: 4/5 It’s best to go into this movie knowing little about it, so that you can be taken on a mysterious ride and not know what to expect. So I won’t reveal too much. But you’ll know from the title that it’s about a personal shopper (played by Kristin Stewart); a Read more...

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 (2017)

Posted 12:28pm Sunday 14th May 2017 by Maisie Thursfield

Rating: 5/5 Let’s praise the Lord one more time for Chris Pratt! Although Andy Dwyer will always hold the number one place in my Chris Pratt dedicated heart, Peter Quill has come a mighty close second after the latest instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy. In this film, we learn about Read more...

Survivor NZ: Dee shits in the ocean, Tony shits the bed

Posted 1:26pm Tuesday 9th May 2017 by Sam McChesney

  Sam is a Survivor superfan, which means he’d be voted off first if he ever played. This is his weekly blog on Survivor New Zealand strategy.   At some point in Survivor, you need to become a threat if you want to win. If you’re seen as a passenger, then barring an Read more...

Moone Boy (seasons 1 & 2)

Posted 1:48pm Sunday 7th May 2017 by Saskia Bunce-Rath

Rating: 4/5   Moone Boy simply warmed the cockles of my heart. This show makes you want to sit in bed with a soft blanket and drink beverages from a thermos, even though you are literally in your house and could make a cup of tea. But what is Moone Boy you ask? Is it about some type of boy Read more...

The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

Posted 1:19pm Sunday 7th May 2017 by Samuel Rillstone

Rating: 4.5/5 As an avid Batman fan, or Bat-fan, viewing the Dark Knight in all his glory as a brooding LEGO figure was quite the treat. It was fraught with references from both on-screen and comic book depictions of the Caped Crusader, with some very sly ones for those who have extensive Read more...

Going in Style (2017)

Posted 1:13pm Sunday 7th May 2017 by Maisie Thursfield

Rating: 2.5/5 For a comedy this film made me really depressed. Even Morgan Freeman’s voice could barely lift my spirits. Three retired gents have their pensions frozen by the company where they worked for 30 years. They can’t even afford to buy a slice of pie and one of them has a Read more...

Their Finest (2016)

Posted 1:09pm Sunday 7th May 2017 by Samuel Rillstone

Rating: 3.5/5 To call Their Finest a British comedy, as many reviews have, is difficult, as it doesn’t provide the classic, almost slapstick, comedy that one associates with British comedy. But there is still that hint of sentimentality whenever the British signature shines through. The Read more...
