Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid

I’m a real sucker for well made kid’s movies as they either remind me of the great ones from my childhood or they capture the spirit of what it was like being a kid. Then of course there are the very kid orientated films which are really only made for the kid market and can…

Devil, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Devil

In my eyes, M Night Shyamalan has been making one bad film after another for years, and I almost couldn’t see him making a comeback. So when I heard he had a three picture deal with a company where three of his ideas would be taken by other filmmakers, turned into scripts, and then directed…

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

Date Night

Steve Carell and Tina Fey by themselves are pure comedic gold, and by putting them into a film together was just asking for something amazing to happen. Maybe it would even create some new form of awesome precious mineral that could be used to describe how good that film would be. So with that amount…

Cyrus, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Cyrus

Often an audience member’s interest in seeing a film is sparked by the actors who are starring in it, which can annoy some filmmakers as they see the idea behind the story and the filmmaking more important than the people acting in it. I recently saw an interview with the prolific Hong Kong director, Tsui…

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…

Animal Kingdom, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Animal Kingdom

Australia has been on fire these last few years with films that have been getting not only critical success but commercial success as well, which is a far cry from 5 years ago when many were saying they had fallen behind on the quality of films they were putting out compared to New Zealand. Well,…

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…

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

With a title like, Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, you can already see what the film is going to be about. I don’t mean that by the fact it has zombies in the title, but that a long title like that and the subject matter can only be one of two things, a horror…

The Fifth Element, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Fifth Element

This 1997 movie blew me away when I first saw it at the movies, but for some reason I never got around to seeing it again after that first time. When a mean deal came up for the 2-disk special edition, I snapped it up right away to check it out and see how 13…

Bridge Of Spies, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

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…
