Battle Creek Brawl, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Battle Creek Brawl

In the past I’ve kept away from a lot of Jackie Chan’s American films as they pretty much never do him justice. There have been the odd exception with the bigger budget films like the Rush Hour and Shanghai series of films, which are actually pretty good, but other than that I do try to…

Armour Of God, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Armour Of God

Jackie Chan has made so many films over the years that he has been able to give almost every genre a try within the frame, of course, of a martial arts movie. So whether it be a cop, pirate, adventure, spy, western, or period drama, he has done them all. Which brings us to the…

Entourage, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Entourage

TV series that end up spawning movies more often than not don’t end up being a good thing, as they tend to only be for the fans of the show, and not really made to cross over to mainstream audiences. But when you ‘are’ one of those fans of a show, then you don’t care…

Jurassic World, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Jurassic World

This might sound odd, but the first film I actually definitively remember seeing at the cinemas was the original Jurassic Park in 1993, when I was 12. I have a memory of maybe seeing The Addams Family in 1991, but like with my other earlier cinema memories, I either don’t remember the movie I saw,…

The Universe, TV, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Universe, Season 2

I thought I had been all ‘universed’ out, as in the last month I had watched the 2010 Stephen Hawking series and the 2010 Morgan Freeman produced series on the universe, back to back. Hawking’s was a four part series and Freeman’s was eight parts, and though both touched on similar issues, I was in…

Aloha, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Aloha

Over the years I’ve seen just over half of Cameron Crowe’s films, and of those, I’ve really liked three of them. One though I thought was pretty damn average, that being his 2011 film, We Bought A Zoo. Not having seen the others means I can’t speculate on their quality, but with a hit rate…

Into The Universe With Stephen Hawking, TV, Review, The Flawed Guru

Into The Universe With Stephen Hawking

Other than seeing a few brief bits on the news about Stephen Hawking, and knowing he’s one of the smartest guys currently alive, I don’t really know much about him and his work. His most famous book, A Brief History of Time, is meant to be amazing, although at the same time an incredibly hard…

San Andreas, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

San Andreas

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a big disaster film, and in fact I can’t even really remember the last one I did see. That can be taken different ways of course, with one being that it really has been a long time, or two that they normally don’t live long in the memory…

Tomorrowland, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Tomorrowland

Have you ever been to a film that’s been getting a lot of hate, and ended up coming out loving it, or at the very least enjoying it a lot more than the negative reviews suggest? I sure have, with Babylon A.D. and John Carter perfect examples of this. So when I started to see…

Halloween, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Halloween

When it comes to classic 70’s and 80’s horror films, I’m a Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Nightmare on Elm Street kind of guy, whereas the Friday the 13th and Halloween movies never really got me interested. In fact, it wasn’t until I watched Halloween recently that I realised I’d either only ever seen small parts…
