Cycling cinematically

It's nearly that time again. Time to get on yer bike for the Aotearoa Bike Challenge. During February workplaces, organisations and teams of all sizes will be competing to see who can get the most cycling in, and rack up the mileage (or kilometrage?). There are also some great prizes up for grabs. For stalwart cyclists like myself participating is a no-brainer. I already cycle everywhere… (more)

Retro-futuristic homage to every post-apocalyptic movie you've ever seen with HEAPS of blood.

Moata's pick: Outrageusly derivative but in the best, cheesiest way possible, this Canada/NZ co-production is the post-apocalyptic retro-futuristic sci-fi movie you've been waiting for. Someone gets killed by a BMX-mounted unicorn head for Pete's sake. Ultra-violence and OTT cheese. Yum!

Looooved this movie! It has a Tarantino style blood and a ton of fun. I felt connected to the characters really fely for them. This movie has lots of heart and should be watched.

Cheesy, but well-intentioned post-apocalyptic fare with Canadian and Australian actors you probably won't recognize (other than Michael Ironside, as the heavy). Lots of cartoonish violence including stabbing, decapitation, blood spurting, using inventive home-made weapons. My favorite was a club with a lawn gnome at the top. Don't look for a deep story here, but if you want to enjoy yourself with a plate of nachos on a Sunday afternoon, a few laughs and a happy ending, you might enjoy this one.
