Sunday Night Movies: “Star Trek”

JJ Abrams’ reboot of the long-running franchise sends it into the 21st century at warp speed.

Sunday Night Movies: “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”

Remember this film from your High School / College years? It does not seem like 15 years ago when this came out and most of the jokes are still great even if you have not seen this film.

Simple but entertaining. Continue reading

An instant classic I remember so well. Continue reading

Sunday Night Movies: “What We Do in the Shadows”

A movie about vampires living in Wellington, New Zealand which does not suck (I know, sorry). The movie follows a group of vampires in documentary-style as they go about their lives, dealing with the challenges of being a 21st century vampire. Most of the laughs come from awkward moments rather than over-the-top humour, yet the movie is entertaining and all the better when it comes off as being so real. Continue reading
