What's Happening Where I Am: Cinema and DVD releases here, 21/07/11

Cinema releases

African Cats - Ooooooh, pretty kitties! This has been advertised lots on TV recently, and it looks pretty intense. If only my cat would get in a movie like this. But she's too fat, the poor ball of fluff.

DVD releases

My Wedding and Other Secrets - This is one of the few New Zealand films which I actually liked. When I first saw the trailer to it when I watched The King's Speech, I thought it looked pretty dodgy. But it's got this cute charm about it, and it's totally easy to relate to. And for once, somebody wrote about their own love life. A love story and a true story? Cute.

The Mechanic - I've decided that I really like Ben Foster. More so if he's starring in films like The Messenger. This one can just go blow itself up or something.

The Warrior's Way - The more I think about this, the more angry I am that this was filmed in New Zealand and it stars Geoffrey Rush. Very well then.

Well...that wasn't hard. Even though it's the holidays, the film gods have decided that it's not cool to release any cool movies. So what are you watching?


  1. I hope to see African Cats tomorrow. Was going to see it today but the session times in Hastings didn't suit.
    Great to see Disney making this type of film again as I remember them making alot of them when I was a kid.
    Refuse to see Bad Teacher which was the only movie released here in Napier today.
    I missed My Wedding for some reason. I hope with it and Love Birds Kiwi films are all going down the romance route!

  2. Wow this is a pretty weak week of release in New Zealand! We get Captain America muahahah!

  3. Brent - African Cats does look pretty good, one of my friends said it was awesome. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it.
    Did Bad Teacher only just come out there? It came out everywhere else like three/four weeks ago...weird.
    Haha, Kiwi romance flicks are pretty alright.

    Castor - Ssssssshhhhhh. We get Captain America next week :P


You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
