Super cute little Kiwi comedy. Not-so-little Ricky Baker is placed into a foster home at the frontier of New Zealand civilization (before you enter the Bush). Adventures follow as he and his "uncle" Hec (played by an unrecognizable Sam Neill) try to deal as much with each other as with the Kiwi wilderness. Takes a while to warm up but both main leads are fantastic as are the various antagonists that they meet or that chase them throughout the film. You'll surprise yourself when you are laughing out loud at a wild boar being killed,...

Very good film on growing up gay in small rural maritime town. I especially liked the nuance of having the mother who leaves the family at a young age, and the fallout that can cause. Great leading performance and some strong supporting ones as well. Loved his best friend, Gemma, played by Sofia Banzhaf, who of course the father assumes is his girlfriend. That relationship was a real highlight. I'm not sure if giving the hamster the voice of Isabella Rossellini was an attempt to go full-blown Cronenberg or what but the comedic breaks were...

Lots of fun, but impossible to match the perfection of Finding Nemo. I really enjoyed it and had some great laughs (seals yelling OFF!OFF!OFF! to get others off their rock had me rolling). Took my 5-yr old girl, Emily, to see it and she found it scary. i assumed she meant the squid-in-a-box but turns out she thought the idea of Dory losing her family was just way too scary. She's right, that's no picnic for a kid. I took her to this cuz I figured Jungle Book was too scary, but apparently I misjudged...

Well, this is going to be tough sell to this crowd. Let me first state that I don't like Jane Austen novels or movies AT ALL. They don't do it for me and I find them quite forced. I saw the trailer for this one and was still not convinced but the cast seemed to strong, i just had to go. It's hilarious and a bunch of quick fun. It's a slow build to the laughter, however. You know how Tarantino takes his time to build up the suspense until you can no longer bear it?...

Amazing. So much fun. Sort of a mix of The Commitments with Once (same director so no wonder) but still totally unique. Very quick synopsis since no one here ever knows these movies i see: 14 yr-old Conor is growing up in 80's Dublin. Having a tough time at home and at school, he luckily gets lost in the eyes of one Raphina. Giving him new purpose in winning her heart, he decides to be a rock star and quickly forms a band. That's all you need to know. I don't...
