Taika Waititi: Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

The trajectory continues upward in our month of Taika Waititi as we discuss Hunt for the Wilderpeople. There’s a lot to love in this movie and we struggle to come up with any significant complaints. Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rachel House, and frickin’ Rhys Darby all give stellar performances, and even the director himself pops in for a bit to play perhaps the worst (or best) priest I’ve ever seen committed to screen. Wilderpeople also continues the trend of showcasing a New Zealand that’s more than just Hobbit holes, although the movie makes a clever LOTR reference that nearly did this shownotes writer in.

Taika Waititi: Boy (2010)

Talk about a jump in quality! This week in our Taika Waititi retrospective we discuss Boy, his feature-length follow-up to Eagle vs. Shark set in New Zealand in 1984. It’s a story about overcoming grief, growing up, and being there for your family, all told from the point of view of the title character. Taika has a larger role in this film compared to the last and his energetic and comedic touch REALLY work. Could say more, but you should probably just dive into the episode.

We also talk Team Thor, Team Thor Part 2, and his Flight of the Concords episode New Zealand Town,” all of which are pretty funny but maybe don’t pop in the way we’ve come to expect from a Taika Waititi venture.

Taika Waititi: Eagle vs Shark (2007)

A new month means a new filmmaker, so for this month we’re talking Taika. We begin with his feature length debut Eagle Vs. Shark, which at first glance looks like the next Napoleon Dynamite. Instead it’s much more down to earth and features characters that are more than just dorky caricatures. Doesn’t mean the film is without flaws and we note that were this movie made today it would end quite differently.

We also talk Thor Ragnarok, which provides an interesting look at the filmmaker and gives us a little bit of an idea about what to expect for the rest of the month. Boy, oh boy, are we in for a treat.
