Deadpool, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Deadpool

Another year, and another comic book character I loved comes to life. Not that this was the first time they brought Deadpool to the big screen, and they even used the same actor. Though I try not to think too much about the Wolverine version, as it was Deadpool in name only, kind of. Ryan…

The Hateful Eight, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Hateful Eight

Love him or hate him, though most tend to love him, Quentin Tarantino is arguably one of the best and unique filmmakers working today. Even for those haters who say he rips his style and storytelling from past filmmakers, would still find it hard to completely throw out his films as only poor imitations. For…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars. It’s amazing how such two simple words can invoke so much happiness, anger, excitement, anticipation, trepidation, and a whole other host of feelings. Those feelings can span the whole 6 film saga, or for some it may even be encompassed within just one of the films. Either way, there aren’t many film series…

City Island, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

City Island

As with many of my press screening films, I went into City Island not knowing anything other than from what I had seen with the posters that I had seen around the various cinemas I frequent, and those tended to show it as maybe a dramedy. Having seen the posters I knew that Andy Garcia…

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.…

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…

Black Mass, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Black Mass

When you think of Johnny Depp these days, and to be honest, the past 10 to 15 years, it’s easy to think of only his character work. Even then, when I say character work, I more mean the over the top kind of style rather than the more subtle kind. So when the trailer for…

The Martian, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

The Martian

When you go into a sci-fi film that has been backed up by NASA effectively saying everything in it would be possible, except for a few things, and they might even be doing just that in the coming years, does it still make it sci-fi? That’s an interesting question to think about, as most sci-fi…

Police Story, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Police Story

Jackie Chan has been a huge star for many years and some of his movies can be seen as his ‘star’ films, which will see him go down in history as one of the greatest action actors of all time. In America those films would include the Rush Hour series, and no doubt the up…

Night Of The Living Dead, Film, Movie, Review, The Flawed Guru

Night Of The Living Dead

With Halloween around the corner, I thought watching a classic horror film would be a good idea, and with zombie films so prevalent these days, it’s always good to go back and check out a classic zombie film, especially the one that started it all in many ways, Night of the Living Dead. This film…
