Ma­jor movies re­viewed

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The new is­sue of Rip It Up is a huge movie spe­cial and in­cludes a visit to The Hang­over: Part 2 set in Bangkok – not my first choice for a cover story – where writers get up close and per­sonal with the wolf pack.

There are also sto­ries on the new Trans­form­ers, X-Men, Green Lan­tern, and Su­per 8 movies.

In the 122-page is­sue, there are fea­tures on the Arc­tic Mon­keys, Manch­ester Orches­tra, Lonely Is­land, Jon Toogood’s new su­per group The Adults, Liam Finn, Friendly Fires and Katy B.

DJ Sir-Vere has also con­trib­uted his in­ter­view with Hamil­ton singer Kim­bra about her his­tory, new sin­gle and the worst gig she has ever per­formed.

Rip It Up is renowned for its re­views and 11 pages are given to the cru­cial and en­ter­tain­ing art form.

I love Rip It Up. It has depth, sub­stance and a broad se­lec­tion of editorial con­tent.

But this is­sue is hardly their best. The cover story should have also been re­con­sid­ered.
