The Endless Summer, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Endless Summer

I’m more than happy to admit that I’m not a fan of the deep ocean. There’s nothing better than diving into the waves and catching a ride on the body board, but just as long as I can touch the bottom then I’m all good! So, despite how tempting it’s been to give surfing a…

Bridge Of Spies

Steven Spielberg really is an amazing filmmaker, and sometimes I wonder what will we do when he’s not making films anymore. Not because he’s the only one who can make the types of films he does, or because his films are all amazing, but because, well, just because. He’s Steven Spielberg after all! In the…

The Breakfast Club

John Hughes was the man responsible for a string of 80’s/90’s films which hit a real nerve with audiences, not only with the subject matter but his ability to really relate to the age of his audience.

Crimson Peak

Legend, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Legend

It’s funny how time goes by so quickly, isn’t it? Or maybe we just think it passes by with great speed. A great example of this are my thoughts on Tom Hardy, who feels to me like he only does character work these days, and has been an age since I’ve seen him play a…

Everest, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Everest

You can’t think of Mt Everest without thinking about New Zealand, or at the very least Sir Edmund Hillary, for those who aren’t aware that he was a kiwi. So when a film comes out about Everest, you’re pretty sure that he’ll be mentioned at least once, even if it was just for the Hillary…
