Rhys Pascoe - Senior Reviewer and Contributor
“It’s like Jim Carrey’s Riddler snorted a dozen lines of cocaine with a Matthew Vaughan movie, and they decided to spend a weekend off-roading in the outback.”
Mad Max: Fury Road – 4½ stars
After spending the bulk of his childhood growing up on the set of Skins (known to the locals as Bristol or ‘Brizzle’), Rhys moved to the land Down Under with two goals: to meet Hugh Jackman, and to studyCommunications at Edith Cowan University. So far, he’s only achieved one of these. Now pursuing a career in marketing, PR and writing, he awakens his inner movie buff in his spare time to write reviews for Hooked On Film.
When he’s not quietly sipping a mug of tea, and flicking through the latest issue of Empire, Rhys gets by on a steady diet of HBO, Netflix and anything involving time travel. Always partial to work of nerd deities like Edgar Wright, Christopher Nolan and Joss Whedon, Rhys’ biggest cinematic pet peeves include 3D films (the glasses never fit properly!), Tom Cruise haters (he does all his own stunts!) and Michael Bay (no explanation needed).
