Abrasive, presumptuous, abhorrent, and incorrigible...but so are the times we now live in

Like They Do It In The Movies

I wonder what colour the sky is in Michel Gondry’s world. The guy has come up with some truly cool music videos over the years, and between THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP and THE ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND has directed two of the most imaginative movies of recent years. Buckle up folks, he’s got...

The Best of You

Yesterday I posted about how I was pleasantly surprised with how good 3:10 TO YUMA turned out to be. I’ll admit, when I first saw trailers, I thought I was in for a crummy western like BAD GIRLS, AMERICAN OUTLAWS, or THE QUICK AND THE DEAD. Instead, I was treated to two hours of pure...

File Under ‘Favorites’ : THE LAST WALTZ

It’s Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada, which for me means lots of time spent with my family. Going back to the house I grew up in reminds me of all kinds of different aspects of growing up. For instance, the wide array of movies my parents rented me that got my love for films going....

Good Friday

Two nights back I didn’t know what to write about. Today I have so much to say I’m on my third post in thirteen hours. Go figure. This morning I came across an article in The Toronto Star that brought both a smile and left me scratching my head. On one hand it details my...

If You Want Blood

I couldn’t help it – I had to break from my one post a day/one trailer a week rhythm for this one. As I mentioned back here, Tim Burton’s take on SWEENEY TODD is one of the fall movies I’m looking forward to the most. Well the trailer finally went online today, and it’s amazing....

Bringing It All Back Home

Back when I was a photography student in college, I did a photographic essay contrasting the rise of the multiplex against the demise of the two screen movie house. I took those photos in November of 1998, and of the five spots I captured in Toronto I’m sad to say that none of them are...
