nine to noon Archives - Funerals & Snakes

First Nine to Noon appearance of the year

By Audio, Cinema and Reviews

Nine to Noon podcast iconAfter what seems like weeks of holidays, Summer Noelles and Matinee Idles, Radio New Zealand National is pretty much back to normal which means the return of my fortnightly movie reviews. Let this be a little placeholder now that Rancho Notorious has become a fortnightly release.

This week: Still Alice, Force Majeure, American Sniper, Unbroken and a little snipe at Birdman.

As an added bonus, here’s Rancho Notorious co-host Kailey Carruthers talking to Lynn Freeman on Sunday’s Standing Room Only arts show.

Plus, New Zealand International Film Festival director Bill Gosden and I talking to Lynn earlier this summer about the future of New Zealand film under the new film commission régime of David Gibson.

I managed to fit in a couple of appearances on Radio New Zealand National in the busy late-December period.
Arts on Sunday podcast iconFirstly, The Listener’s Helene wong and I joined Simon Morris on the Arts on Sunday for a chat about the state of New Zealand cinema in 2013 prompted by the recent New Zealand Film Awards (or “Moas”).

Nine to Noon podcast iconThen, just before everyone broke for the Christmas break I paid Kathryn Ryan a visit at Nine to Noon
to discuss my highlights of the year and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
