Taken 3, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Taken 3

Before going into see Taken 3, I had something on my mind, which was a very brief review of the film I had seen on Facebook. It said, ‘Taken 3, makes Taken 2, look like Taken’. I thought it was a pretty funny and clever thing to say at the very least, but having seen…

The Invention of Lying

I’ve been a huge fan of Ricky Gervais since I first saw The Office when my mum brought back a DVD of the first series of the show from England. This was before it had ever been on TV in New Zealand, so when it finally did hit our shores I was over the moon…

American Sniper, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

American Sniper

American Sniper had a lot of hype going into it, but that also came with a side of hate, so I didn’t really know what to expect. Also I had to take into consideration that it was directed by Clint Eastwood, who in my eyes, is a hit and miss director. So with a bit…

Year One

Year One is a comedy brought to us by the prolific comedy producer and filmmaker, Judd Apatow. Just last week I had seen the film Funny People, which he directed, so I was looking forward to this film as the trailer had looked really good. But looks can be deceiving as they say! Year One…

I’m Not Harry Jenson

I only got the chance to see two films at the 2009 New Zealand International Film Festival, but picking this New Zealand film was an easy choice to make. We had been following the film for a while as we knew of the guy producing it, Tom Hearn. When we first heard about the film…
