What's On: MEMORIES OF MURDER (Korea 2003)

David from Brooklyn

Based on real-life serial killings that rocked a rural Korean community in the 80s, Bong Joon-ho's crime thriller upends the conventions of the policier with genre-defying results. Details at https://wellingtonfilms.nz/films/memories-of-murder/

Michael from Trentham

Not the biggest pothole in NZ but Alexander Road in Trentham has one of its round-abouts with a family of potholes on the roading making it difficult to avoid them.

The Upper Hutt City Council was quick and ridiculous to reduce the speed limit of all Alexander Road from 80kg to 50kg but not so quick to repair this multiple of potholes.

I must not hold my breath because nearly 4 years ago I held a discussion with the UHCC roading chief on the appalling state of the busy Ward Street road in Wallaceville and he agreed but asked me which would you prefer - fixing up Fergusson Drive or Ward Street as a priority. Well nothing has been done either to Fergusson Drive.

I am hoping the new Government with its plans to reverse some speed restrictions and introduce reducing speed restrictions on some roads, will prompt the UHCC to wake up their ideas of Alexander Road which in most part is non urban residential housing.
