This takes away the humble appeal of New Zealand.
We are giving knighthoods away to every Tom, Graham and Kirwan!
Just for making a movie, winning a world cup etc etc

Why doesn't Steven Spielberg get one?
Why doesn't Beckham's soccer coach get a knighthood?

We make a few movies- Wellywood!

Guh! It's like having grandma telling you what's "hip"
