Concerning Movies (2011)

This post is brought to you by Material Movie, Riaad Moosa’s new flick releasing nationwide on the 17 Feb. Riaad has been encouraging me to write more, and also break into the comedy scene. Riaad, Zain Bhikha and Hashim Amla are my three role models. I will do a post on Material Movie this week.

I have decided to use the same format as my last four year end awards (and apart from a few revisions, the text is almost identical to last years - MJ is lazy!) Don’t forget to check out Waseems list. I would have linked it but his blog is blocked on my work server.

As with all my posts/notes - its subjective. So if you disagree - by all means correct me.
