Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

An Evening with …

I have been working on this piece since Sunday. Why? Because this week I was not writing a movie review. The movie I saw on Friday was Push and it was a complete waste of time, talent, and a great concept. The way the film was put together was sloppy and incredibly boring. The movie……read more

It makes the world go ’round

I haven’t taught you guys anything in a while so because of the current economic turmoil I thought I would teach you a little something about money. Pay your taxes You know the phrase “Pay through the nose”? I think it is a little misleading. It really should be “Pay with the nose”… …more

Whose business is it anyway?

Michael Phelps. Well I guess you know what I’m talking about. Can I just say that I have heard enough about this man already, I know – he smoked marijuana, but seriously who cares? I mean other than the lazy ass people who would rather have their children look up to someone else as a……read more

Juicy Squirts

First, you guys are sick and should get your minds out of the gutter. Anyways, a couple of weeks ago I needed to get some candy. I was going to go see a movie, I don’t remember which one, and I went to Shopper’s to pick some up because why should I pay $6… …more

Taken

This is easily one of the best thriller/action/vengeance films I have seen in a long time. It is swift, brutal, and satisfying. It’s a simple film, with a simple story, that is well played out. It is about a father (Liam Neeson) and his fight to get his kidnapped daughter (Maggie Grace) back. They… …more

Project Runaway

On Jan 27 was the premiere of the new season of Project Runway Canada. I was totally excited because it is one of the very few reality shows I bother watching. Yes it is about competition but there is a good balance between that and creativity. There is drama but it is not excessivelyhyped up……read more

Guilty Pleasures – Music Edition

I know, I know, I really shouldn’t be admitting to this in such a public manner but I am going to anyways. Everybody has a guilty pleasure or two and they feel so alone and guarded about it. You can’t help it when that cheesy song comes on and your foot starts to tap uncontrollably……read more

Defiance

This movie has a theme that doesn’t allow people to say bad things about it. It is just kind of a rule. But to tell you the truth the movie isn’t that good. There are parts that are shocking but that’s about it. Defiance is a movie about a group of Jewish people hiding… …more

The Curious Case of Why Benjamin is Overrated

Dear Benjamin, I know you must be moping around that you have remained largely ignored thus far in the awards race. I just wanted to let you know that it’s not because we hate you, because we don’t, it’s just that you are kind of overrated. I mean in comparison to you, a relatively… …more
