Avid moviegoers are once again reacquainted with the imaginative scope of J.R.R. Tolkien’s festive wonderworld in writer-director Peter Jackson’s frenetic follow-up to ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’. In ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug’, Jackson revisits his style of elaborate escapist cinema, the visual vitality and expansive storytelling methods to convey Tolkien’s visionary landscape of […]
When reviewing any piece of work, I do my best to take it in isolation and not let related materials influence my judgement. I’m afraid with ‘The Hobbit’ soundtrack, that’s just not possible so expect lots of references to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ to follow. I’m sure I don’t need to go into the […]
Call this shameless marketing for Lego Minifigs if you will… we’re just a corporate whore at heart, but let’s face it, if Lego made a Minifig of you, wouldn’t you be proud of it? The cast of The Hobbit certainly are!

Okay, you have to give it to Peter Jackson, he has come a long way since his early Fraggle-like porn movies and has moved on to covering JRR Tolkien’s books with distinction, single handedly revitalizing the NZ-shot movie economy in the process.

It’s interesting that the media seem to be trying to spread a ‘This movie sucks’ message based on supposed awful early reactions at test screenings. We’ll hold our opinion until we’ve actually seen the film, […]
You don’t step on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind and above all else, you don’t mess with the classics. Thankfully, David Wenzel and Charles Dixon have resisted the urge to give their graphic novel translation a modern look to reflect the super-duper high definition look that will grace our screens this Christmas.
