Celeste And Jesse Forever, Film Review, Movie Review, The Flawed Guru

Celeste and Jesse Forever

It’s not often I’d pick to see an Andy Samberg movie where he seems to play it straight forward with very little to no comedy, but when I had the chance to check out Celeste and Jesse Forever, which seemed exactly like that kind of performance, I was still interested to give it a watch…

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

In many ways the original Planet Of The Apes movies were the benchmark for the Hollywood love of sequel’s, especially for popular movies that made a lot of money. So when people complain that today’s movies are too entwined with remakes and sequels, we always must remember that this is not a new phenomenon, as…

Reno 911!: Miami

When TV series do feature films it’s always a bit of a wonder why they even bother in my mind, unless they need to do something big that a TV series just can’t afford to do, be it with money or time. Or maybe it’s a way to wrap up the whole series in a…

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Film Review, Movie Review, The Flawed Guru

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

Even though the Planet Of The Apes series is a pretty damn famous one, I’ve never actually seen any of the five originals, but I did see Tim Burton’s 2001 version, which I wasn’t a big fan of. Despite all that, it’s such a mainstream movie series that over the years I have actually gleaned…

Lone Survivor, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Lone Survivor

It’s not often that the title of the film is pretty much its own spoiler, which it very much is with this film, Lone Survivor. I guess in its own right it still doesn’t give much away when out of context, but when you see the trailer, it’s pretty easy to see how this is…

How To Train Your Dragon 2

I seem to have this issue of thinking my girlfriend has seen all the movies I have, so there’s been a few times now that I take her along to a movie, that happens to be a sequel, only for her to say just before it, “I’ve never seen the first one”. Which, on the…

Nymphomaniac: Vol 1 & 2, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Nymphomaniac: Vol 1 & 2

Going to watch a Lars von Trier movie already had me thinking one way. And that was the film was likely to be very arty, very psychological, have many layers, and be potentially pretentious as all hell! Not that I’ve seen many of his films, as in fact the only one I’ve seen was Melancholia,…

12 O'clock Boys, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

12 O’clock Boys

12 O’clock Boys is one of those documentaries that you really hope is one thing, but turns out to be a little bit light on that front, and ends up just being a solid and interesting film. You see it follows a young kid, Pug, who over the course of 3 years tries to get…

Blue Is The Warmest Colour, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Blue Is The Warmest Colour

Blue Is The Warmest Colour is an interesting film, and no, not for the reason some of you might expect if you’ve already seen it. It’s a film that had, and has, a lot of buzz about it, with high praise, as well as derided from some sectors, including people involved in the making of…

Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Movie Review, Film Review, The Flawed Guru

Transformers: Age Of Extinction

This is how I feel about the Transformers movies. Loved the first one, but in hindsight I wonder if I was so in awe of finally seeing Transformers on the big screen, that I fully overlooked many of the bad things about it. With the others, it’s become fool me once shame on you, with…
