Thunder Jet Boat Review: 4.5 Stars

Last weekend, my father gave me some theatre tickets so I visited Sydney stayed at the Hilton Hotel and to kill some time, I ventured on my way down to the Opera House. On the way down to this iconic tourist attraction I saw the bustling Wharves of Sydney with a busy Ferry services collecting

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049 3.5 Stars

I liked this movie: 3.5 Stars. The movie is well made but I hasten to add it is long (2h 43mins) and often slow paced. And is really only suited to fans of either the movie’s director Denis Villeneuve or, the prequel Blade Runner movie, directed by Ridley Scott and released in 1982.

Book of Mormon Musical: 5 Stars!

I saw the Book of Mormon Musical last night at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre; I loved it. The musical was created by the South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone; and was as comic and enthralling as most of their animated episodes are.

Accordingly, you judge the film in comparison of how the story fits in with the movie franchise as a whole. The Alien storyline is

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 3.5 Stars

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Nearly, but not as good as the original: 3.5 Stars. Don’t get me wrong, sequels always have a much harder job to impress audiences, especially when the original was really good; the bar has been set much higher. The movie has a great story with impressive special effects. However, my only complaint is how some scenes

Movie Review: Ghost in the Shell 3 Stars

I enjoyed this Movie more for it’s special effects than it’s adaptation as a story: 3 Stars. Ghost in the Shell is an intricate blend of futuristic, sci-fi anime; and it works.   I particularly liked the Aristotle- like philosophical statement that is mentioned a couple of times throughout the movie;   I am paraphrasing but it goes
