Buried, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Buried

Buried was one of the few films that got past me during its making and when I saw the first trailer for it I was intrigued. It looked like a mix of Phone Booth meets the modern type of slasher horror film, which always has that major twist at the end. With Ryan Reynolds in…

Boy, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Boy

For a New Zealand film to capture the imagination of the country it has to be pretty good. When the film does that before it’s even released then it really must be something special! Boy is Taika Waititi’s 2nd feature film after his first, Eagle Versus Shark, which I thought was good but needed work.…

Astro Boy, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Astro Boy

When I was a kid I was an avid cartoon viewer on Saturday mornings and after school, and those many hours of wasted youth turned into a love of Japanese Anime as an adult. But one show, or character, I never really got into was Astro Boy. This isn’t to say I didn’t know that…

American: The Bills Hicks Story

Bill Hicks is a name I’d heard many times over the years but I never really knew much about him other than having seen a few snippets of footage of his stand-up comedy routines. I vaguely knew that he was an angry comedian and that he had issues with drugs and alcohol but that’s basically…

Alice In Wonderland, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Alice In Wonderland

Alice In Wonderland is one of those iconic stories that most kids growing up in the western world knows and I’d say would love. Not just because of its great characters and an interesting world, but even as a kid you knew the whole thing was some weird ‘trippy’ dream-like experience unlike any other kids…
