Doomsday, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Doomsday

Doomsday, directed by Neill Marshall, is a film that I’d been looking forward to for a few months. Marshall is best known as the writer/director of the 2002 film, Dog Soldiers, about the British military against werewolves, and the 2005 film, The Descent, about an all female caving adventure which goes horribly wrong when they…

Chappie

Going back a few years now, there was a young South African director in New Zealand to shoot a trailer for a feature film adaption of the X-Box game Halo. I knew a few people on the shoot, and a lot of people were still scratching their heads at how someone who had never made…

Cry Wolf, Film, Movie, Review,, The Flawed Guru

Cry Wolf

I’ve just watched the DVD, Cry Wolf, having seen the film for the first time when I was in America in 2005. My brother and I were in the USA promoting our feature film Hidden, which we were pushing as a horror though it’s more of an art house thriller. While there we decided to…

Run All Night, Review, Film, Movie, The Flawed Guru

Run All Night

Watching the film Run All Night will forever be etched in my memory as the night New Zealand made the final of the World Cup with a win over South Africa! You see, I left watching the game when we were at 140 for 3, still needing over 150 to win, so it was at…

Wall-E, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Wall-E

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I love PIXAR! They have yet to make a film I haven’t loved, well I haven’t seen UP yet but I’m bound to love that as well. So when I had the chance to watch Wall-E on sexy Blu-Ray I was excited as I hadn’t seen the…

Insurgent, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Insurgent

Teen fiction is of course not written for me, and neither are the films that result from the books, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try and be a bit more accessible to non teen audiences. Over the years there have been many misses, some massive hits, and many middle of the road film adaptations…

Seventh Son, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Seventh Son

It’s not often that production companies come with track records you seem to naturally trust. Not in the way that every film they make will be amazing, but at the very least that everything that make will range from good to great. A few of these production companies, in my eyes, are Working Title, Pixar,…

Unfinished Business, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Unfinished Business

Looking back at it, I remember seeing the trailer for Unfinished Business, but at the same time I remember nothing about it at all, which also makes me doubt if I ever saw it in the first place. Now having seen the film, it turns out I could easily have seen the trailer and not…

Valkyrie, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Valkyrie

If there’s something I always love when it comes to films, it’s documentaries or movies based on real life events. Nothing gets to me more than after the last scene in the movie when they describe what went on to happen to everyone. In fact even fictional stories in films and on TV that do…

Focus, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Focus

When I first saw the trailer for Focus, it didn’t exactly blow me away. The fact it had Will Smith in it was what really perked the interest, and with the rising star of Margot Robbie in the female lead, made it just that bit more interesting. So with tickets to the movies to use…
