Chasing Great

Posted 12:13pm Saturday 8th October 2016 by Hugh Baird

Rating: A+++++++ After watching Richie McCaw's latest film Chasing Great, I’ve come to the careful conclusion that the man pisses excellence. He was dux of his high school, he flies planes and helicopters, and he is now widely regarded as our greatest All Black of all time. Despite all Read more...

Bridget Jonesís Baby

Posted 12:10pm Saturday 8th October 2016 by Not Hugh Baird

Rating: B+ So there I found myself, on my lonesome sitting in the movie theatre with about nine younger women and twenty seniors all staring at me, wondering what the hell I was doing with my life. I must say, in the midst of my hangover I was thinking the same thing. I slumped low into my seat Read more...

2001: A Space Odyssey

Posted 12:08pm Saturday 8th October 2016 by Jac Aske

Rating: F--- I want to preface this by saying that I only saw this movie because my Dad got a Kubrick box set from The Warehouse and said we had to watch it. It’s about some astronaut guys who are on a spaceship going somewhere and it sucks. I don’t care how fancy a director Stanley Read more...

Sully

Posted 12:33pm Saturday 24th September 2016 by Nita Sullivan

Rating: A- In the filmic reincarnation of that famous “2009 Miracle on the Hudson”  where Captain “Sully” Sullenberger made a successful emergency water landing after hitting a flock of geese soon after takeoff—director Clint Eastwood makes some effort to keep Read more...

The Shallows

Posted 12:24pm Saturday 24th September 2016 by Nita Sullivan

Rating: B- Upon deep reflection, I have decided that watching The Shallows is much like eating McDonalds for dinner, both of which I did in the last week. What I mean is that both events (the film and the fast food eating) possessed equal amounts of enjoyment, critical thought, and Read more...

Blood Father

Posted 12:22pm Saturday 24th September 2016 by Alex Campbell-Hunt

Rating: B+ It’s harder to enjoy Mel Gibson’s movies now that his various forms of insanity are out in the open. Every time he loses his shit on screen, you can’t help but wonder how much of it is really “acting”—and it’d be nice to travel back in time Read more...

David Brent: Life on the Road

Posted 1:56pm Saturday 17th September 2016 by Lisa Blakie

Rating: C+ David Brent: Life on the Road follows David Brent (Ricky Gervais) from The Office and his newfound existence as the lead singer of his band “Foregone Conclusion”. The whole movie is basically like “remember how David makes really questionable jokes? Here’s Read more...
