After the breath of fresh air that was Baby Driver, last week (seriously, if you’ve not seen my review – it’s cracking!), it was back to familiar territory, and the Marvel superhero blockbuster.

There were parts that were perfect, the score boomed and the musical elements of the film, not something I’m … More The film everyone’s talking about; does La La Land deliver on the hype?
Mel Gibson is a divisive figure of rampant controversy among Hollywood royalty. He may have been excluded from the silver screen as an actor, for comments which won’t be brought up in this review, but he can still make a fine film, and ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ is no exception. In fact, for a man who made … More Mel Gibson makes movie magic in harrowing WW2 true story drama Hacksaw Ridge

The first of his films I caught was 2010’s ‘Boy’, a fantastic comic coming-of-age tale, the second was the equally brilliant vampire mockumentary ‘What We Do In The Shadows’, and I’m delighted to report that his latest, ‘Hunt For The Wilderpeople’, is just as great, … More Quirky Kiwi comedy delivers laughs, adventure and plenty of heart – Hunt for the Wilderpeople Film Review
