Mad Hot BallroomMad Hot Ballroom (2005)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) They reminded me of my peak.
Gun ShyGun Shy (1999)
3 stars (Good Enough) Not all of it works but it is different and worth a look.
Fright NightFright Night (1985)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) I thought it got the basics right and it wasn't too ambitious in anything and the mix of performers, characters, and writing worked. Special mention should be made of the skills exhibited by the Make–Up Department.
DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
MerantauMerantau (2009)
2 stars (Good Try) Some good stunt work but the one man army concept soon wears thin and just gets silly.
Blu-Ray $19.95
Wizard of Oz, TheWizard of Oz, The (1939)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) Ever set out on a walk whistling "We're off to see the Wizard "?
Fast Food NationFast Food Nation (2006)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The format of the screenplay all but ensures unevenness but it is a film that should be commended for its intentions and one that most of us should see at least once.
DVD $20 $10
Beast, TheBeast, The (La Bete) (1975)
2 stars (Good Try) The screenplay lacks a bit of substance but if in the right mood it could entertain. The photography is excellent.
DVD $30 $22.50, $40
LiltingLilting (2014)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The cultural barriers, especially the need to use a translator, also make it a frustrating watch but they do help to get the point of the screenplay across.
MatarikiMatariki (2010)
2 stars (Good Try) The way it started out I thought it was a comedy but most of the lightness disappears shortly after only to reappear in flashes during the drama some of which is quite heavy. Not great but watchable.
MasquesMasques (1987)
2 stars (Good Try) Watchable but the screenplay isn't particularly strong.
