Ride Along 2, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Ride Along 2

When going to see a film, that happens to be a sequel, it’s never a good thing when you have nearly no memory of the first film. In fact, the only thing I do remember of the first film was that it starred Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, with the latter going out with the…

The Night Before, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Night Before

Tastes can vary greatly, and this includes anything really, be it music, TV, film, and anything else where someone can pick one thing over another. Actors and actresses aren’t immune to this, and often comedians get it the worst, as either you think they are funny or not, and if not, then anything they do…

After The Waterfall, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

After The Waterfall

At this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival I was only able to check out a couple of films due to an extreme lack of money, but with my reviewing work I’ve been invited to check out a whole heap of those films as they slowly get theatre releases here. The festival only had a…

A Nightmare On Elm Street, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

A Nightmare On Elm Street

Great movies are normally great for a reason. They are able to ‘bottle the lightning’ and come up with a unique idea that resonates with the audience of the time. To be a classic movie, however, the film needs to make an impact with audiences over many different decades, and although the clothes and hair…

Day Of The Dead, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Day Of The Dead

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought it was time to check out a few classic horror films, so I got my hands on the 1968 Night Of The Living Dead, and what I thought was the 1985 Day Of The Dead, which are movies one and three of horror king George A. Romero’s classic series…

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…

Poltergeist, Film, Review, Movie, The Flawed Guru

Poltergeist

Being a big fan of any original film means when it’s remade, you tend to walk a delicate balance of not overly comparing it to the new one and not letting that detract your opinion too much. On the other hand, you love that film for a reason, and if the remake just doesn’t live…

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,…

Dragonball Evolution, Film, Movie, The Flawed Guru, Review

Dragonball:Evolution

Dragonball is a Japanese anime series that ran from 1986 to 1997 in three different incarnations; Dragonball, Dragonball Z and Dragonball GT. The rest of the world picked up on the phenomenon near the end of its Japanese run when, in 1995, the USA started airing an English dubbed and heavily censored version of the…

Paranormal Activity 5, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Paranormal Activity 5

I’ve enjoyed the Paranormal Activity series since the beginning, even if it did get off to a bad start in my mind. You see, we were developing a camera based paranormal movie at the same time, and this seemed very similar, which threw us a little bit. Though once seeing it, we realized it was…
