Movietalk

Each week on Movietalk Hans Petrovic and guests review three films currently showing in Christchurch theatres, covering all types of film from art-house to mainstream.

Giving listeners an in-depth explanation of the film and what kind of audience would appreciate it most, Hans also keeps listeners up to date with information on upcoming film festivals, Oscar predictions and a Top Ten Films list at the end of each year. 
Tune in every Wednesday at 12noon.

Movietalk is hosted by Hans Petrovic, a movie-enthusiast with an extensive history of reviews as the film critic for The Press for an impressive 25 years. Each week Hans features three different reviewers to give their views on the films of the week, as well as guest interviews with those who have some special knowledge in whatever the film is about – be it music, politics, foreign-language movies, sport, art or even espionage.

Some of Hans’ usual reviewers are:

Emma Smart , the youngest reviewer with an interest in films old and new, Emma has a wonderful knowledge of all movies and expresses this very well.

Ian Cumming , a film buff who will watch and review anything, who himself holds experience in producing and directing thousands of hours of television, including documentaries, news, entertainment, sport, religious and children’s programmes.

Meri Gibson has extensive experience at senior management level, and is a marketing and communications professional allowing her to give deep analyses of film.

Ian Clements is an author, TV producer and airline pilot, and is happy to chat about any topic under the sun – a handy trait for a film reviewer!
