Welcome to Now Showing NZ’s Movie Reviews and TV Reviews Podcast for Wednesday 10/02/2021


Today we’ll be discussing a classic film dating back to 1988 – Willow. Here’s a snippet of the Willow movie reviews which you can check out right here.

Before we talk about the not-so-great points of this film, it’s important to note that Ron Howard’s direction of Willow is pretty solid. And the casting of Warwick Davis as Willow is also great. We know Lucas has used Warwick Davis in Star Wars so he may have worked with Howard to include him. But Davis really brings Willow’s character to life, and he is one of the best things about it.

And we also review UK mini-series Des that released last year. Here’s the synopsis from IMDb:

In 1983 Scottish serial killer Dennis Nilsen is arrested after the discovery of human remains which have blocked a drain near his London home.
