Agreed, I'm really interested to see what Taika Waititi does with it.
Look at the folks making their next four films. James Gunn. Jon Watts. Taika Waititi. Ryan Coogler. I think I may be on board for good.
Above all else, Taika Waititi directing THOR: RAGNAROK makes me VERY intrigued. His voice / vision could really enhance MCU if allowed.
okay but consider this: Taika Waititi directing a superhero movie.
Now even more psyched to see what Taika Waititi & his crew bring to the Marvel Universe in the next Thor movie.

I find out in 5 days if my film has made it into Short FIlm category for the Oscars. If I am nominated, I would be the second Kiwi in the 86 year history to have an Oscar nomination in this category right behind Taika Waititi "Two Cars, One Night"., which is pretty awesome company to be in. Whatever happens, I owe a debt of gratitude to the friends who pushed me to start writing and to everyone who believed in me. Crossing my fingers!

So happy I bought this film, "Eagle vs. Shark" has saved my evening. Taika Waititi, I still want to meet you and I want to go to New Zealand even more!
BOY was absolutely brilliant. Funny, charming and bittersweet. Must see film from writer/director Taika Waititi.
This is a recent TVC for Carlton Dry directed by Taika Waititi of Curious Film for Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. Onlined by Eugene Richards and graded by Fergus Hally, for this commercial we dusted off the old VHS deck to give the aerobics TV insert that authentic generation loss look that you can only get on real VHS. We dubbed it for three generations to introduce those old school aberrations and errors. Raw 2K to VHS! What a treat!

Taika Waititi is such a brilliant story-teller... I could honestly listen to him all day. He's one of those people.
We cannot stay silent while racists like this carry knives through airports & blame the diligence of customs officers on anyone who looks different. When I travel I look like a wog to most customs officers, even when I come home. If Cliff Curtis or Taika Waititi grew a beard they would look like Osama Bin Laden. This is the face of social terrorism intended to provoke fear, hatred & division amongst us to advance his own weak, un elected, political status. Don't apologise or make excususes for him.

Did the host of Berlinale honestly just ask if Taika Waititi's name was fake?
Dreamt last night that I met Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, and while looking for something for them to sign I found papers which suggested that I had, in fact, written several of FOTC's songs (somehow I'd forgotten about it). Then they did a kind of flash mob comedy performance in the middle of the street in aid of the homeless. I also found a load of My Little Ponies at the charity shop. Great dumb dream - much better than the dumb dream I had the night before last in which I took a frog to techniquest and it collapsed with hunger so I took the dead frog I'd been chewing on out of my mouth and fed it to the live frog to revive it.
