19 Films have been rated or reviewed by Barry B.

Strength of Water, TheStrength of Water, The (2009)
4 stars (Very Good) I enjoyed this more than most of the reviews of it I read suggest I would. It\'s a little special.
Hopes and Dreams of Gazza Snell, TheHopes and Dreams of Gazza Snell, The (2010)
3 stars (Good Enough) I had high expectations of this movie, but was slightly disappointed that it didn\'t really go where I thought it may have.
DVD $24.95 $14.95
Apron Strings Apron Strings (2008)
4 stars (Very Good) Unlike many NZ films, I\'ve certainly watched this one more than once.
After the WaterfallAfter the Waterfall (2010)
3 stars (Good Enough) I expected more but I\'ve definitey watched worse Kiwi film making. Will certainly watch it again.
DVD $20 $15
Insatiable Moon, TheInsatiable Moon, The (2010)
4 stars (Very Good) Of this NZ offering I had very little expectation, but was pleasantly surprised. Thorougly recommended.
PredicamentPredicament (2010)
3 stars (Good Enough) Glad the fourth and final film from the collection has been made, and true to the other Morrieson\'s as well. Taranaki hasn\'t change that much since the film was set either haha.
DVD $20 $15
MatarikiMatariki (2010)
4 stars (Very Good) I really enjoyed this film, helped possibly by locations I\'m very familar with, but definitely a good – if slightly complex – watch.
Heavenly CreaturesHeavenly Creatures (1994)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) I enjoyed this less than most it seems, but it\'s certainly an above average venture.
Memory and DesireMemory and Desire (1998)
3 stars (Good Enough) I\'ve watched this more than once, and with the amount of NZ films I\'ve collected that\'s saying something. Doesn\'t hold one\'s interest 100% of the time, but pretty close.
DVD $25
Waimate Conspiracy, TheWaimate Conspiracy, The (2006)
3 stars (Good Enough) Is an enjoyable watch. If the plan was to entertain, Harris succeeded.
DVD $34.95
Quiet Night InQuiet Night In (2005)
2 stars (Good Try) I liked the story line, but the final product wasn\'t a happening thing.
RainRain (2001)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) Pretty much as good as Kiwi cinema gets.
DVD $39.95
FractureFracture (2004)
5 stars (Exceptional) Ranks right up with generally recognized Kiwi gems, \"In My Father\'s Den\" and \"Rain\".
In My Father's DenIn My Father's Den (2004)Aro Favourite
5 stars (Exceptional) One of the best NZ movies of all time.
DVD $25 $18.75

4 stars (Very Good) Broken English and Savage Honeymoon make me very glad I was born into a \"normal\"family haha. Both great NZ movies...

Waiting Place, TheWaiting Place, The (2000)
1 star (Turkey) I bought it and watched it – but never will again!!
When Love ComesWhen Love Comes (1999)
2 stars (Good Try) It should work; an interesting plot and some worthy talent – but it just doesn\'t....
