Reading Reviews

If you would like to submit a film review please send it to us, along with your first and last name, school, and the city where you live.

Here are a few films to get your thinking started:

Shrek (2001) by Andrew Adamson (a Kiwi director), The Hobbit (2012) by Sir Peter Jackson, Bridge to Terabithia (2007 – filmed in New Zealand); Kaitangata Twitch (2010), Under the Mountain (2009), Jane and the Dragon (2005) which are all television shows; The Water Horse (2007 – filmed in New Zealand ), The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005 – filmed in New Zealand) or Rangi's Catch (1973) by Michael Forlong. Children might also enjoy PG-rated films like Moana (2016 – has strong New Zealand connections with Kiwi actors and original songs written by a Kiwi), Love Birds (2011) and Second Hand Wedding (2008) by Paul Murphy.

It is up to you! Just make sure if you are 13 you don't review an R16 film!
