Back In The Day

In amidst the coming and going of what has been an unbelievably eventful holiday season, I was happy to take a few minutes and watch my favorite football team win their fifteenth game of the season. In honour of The New England Patriots spectacular season, take a peek at a pretty good lookin‘ movie coming...

Careless Whisper

This will be a weird one. I’m about to post a video clip which I have no intention of watching…but felt I should post it for anyone who might indeed be interested. So back in 2003 we were given LOST IN TRANSLATION. It’s a love it-or-hate it film, with the role of a lifetime for...

Stacked Actors

Yes, more nominating goodness this morning, this time courtesy of the Screen Actors Guild. And is it just me, or does their award statuette look like an indecisive thespian? Over the past few years the SAG Awards have been going higher and higher profile – I know, it seems like all these awards have been...

The Darkest One

If you know me at all, the fact that I’ve chosen this trailer to post should come as no surprise. The fact that I waited four days to post it on the other hand…

We Need a Little Christmas

There are all sorts of Christmas traditions for my family. Midnight mass. Betting on how long it will take my aunt and cousin to start arguing. Cutting down the family Christmas tree. Searching for that special gift that mom has left the price tag on. Varied traditions indeed, all of them saying “Feliz Navidad” in...

I Don’t Like Mondays

On the one hand, snowstorms like the one Toronto got this weekend are a great way to catch up on your DVD watching. On the other hand, that sort of weather doesn’t help you when you’re trying to move to a new apartment. I managed to do a bit of both this weekend, but would...

Crazy

Having looked over this year’s list of Golden Globes Nominees, I’m truly starting to believe that the time may be near for The Hollywood Foreign Press to be put in a padded room. They’ve always been a touch on the odd side, but it feels like with every passing year, they’re not so much “ha-ha”...

All Around the World

That wacky group of press corps, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, got up bright and early this morning and announced the nominees for the 2008 Golden Globe Awards. The Globes have had a weird history, from once being a joke, to becoming a major Oscar precursor, now slowly dipping back towards disreputation (For more on...

I Can See Clearly Now

If you’re as Oscar-obsessed as I am, 2007 might well have been driving you crazy. Until the last week or so, there was no clear-cut contenders. Lots of movies making the rounds seem like they will take home some gold (SWEENEY TODD, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, JUNO)…but all of them have knocks against them...
