Madman Entertainment are brining Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie to NZ audiences in cinema for one week only (October 13th, 2016). The film will be released on DVD on November 10th and is available to pre-order now.
I’ve mentioned in previous reviews of kids shows that my love for Madman is deeply rooted in the release of my favourite childhood shows (Samurai Pizza Cats, Sailor Moon, Johnny Bravo etc). Earthworm Jim (1995-1996) was one I had pretty much forgotten about, which is weird because I watched it all the time at my […]
For as much as I love art I didn’t even know Peggy Guggenheim existed or that she is pretty much responsible for launching the career of every artist that I like. Of course I knew about the Guggenheim museum; I figured it was some rich old fart of a man, which well it is, but […]
If I told you that 1 in every 5 women gets raped on campus in America, would you still want to go to University? I can’t believe I am typing these words but here you go. !!!TRIGGER WARNING!!!

Both were shot by German-American Joshua Oppenheimer and a team of mostly-anonymous (for their own protection) collaborators in Indonesia over a period of nearly a decade. The focus is on the military coup of 1965 and the […]
City of Gold is a film about L.A. based (Pulitzer Prize winning) food critic Jonathan Gold. Identifying as a “failed cellist”, Gold was also a proofreader and music reviewer for the L.A. Weekly. Before he became a full-time food critic, Gold ate at every eatery on the 15 mile stretch of Pico Boulevard which runs from downtown L.A. to Santa Monica. […]
I don’t know how this show slipped by me. I try to keep up with every good foreign TV show but every now and then there’s always one where I am late to the party. I saw the remake on Netflix just as my father-in-law was telling me how much he loved the original and […]
Cartel Land is a documentary about the effect the Mexican drug cartels have on communities and two “vigilante” groups who try to fight against them. The first is a group called the Autodefensas, a group led by Dr Jose Mireles (aka “El Doctor”). The Autodefensas are a group of locals sick of the violence and […]
For those of you who haven’t a clue who or what Clarence is check out my volume one review. Clarence is a Cartoon Network show that is a neat throw back to 90s cartoons such asHey Arthur, Ed Edd n Eddy, Rugrats etc. It’s a little less hip and more little kid-orientated than stuff like Adventure […]
One could say that Jeremy Scott is the Banksy of the fashion world. Loved and adored by many but not fully embraced by the elite of their fields. For those of you who don’t know who Jeremy Scott is, he’s a fashion designer and the current Creative Director of Italian luxury fashion house Moschino. Celebs such […]
Having not seen any wrestling since the mid-80s-90s where I grew up watching the classic WWF Superstars, I was quite curious to see how this current generation of wrestling is. Being a complete neophyte when it comes to modern wrestling, I learned a Royal Rumble is essentially a no-holds-barred 30-man brawl wherein the winner is […]

To pull in viewers during the Republican/Democrat conventions of […]
