In 2015, many of the year's biggest games failed to live up to expectations.
On this episode we review Pixels and talk with cartoonist Gillian G and author Adrienne Kress of The Secret Loves of Geek Girls.
Pixels has more respect for classic video game characters than it does for women, and that's a much better reason to hate the film.
Pixels may not be good, but it's not the travesty some would make it out to be.
The Cobbler is one of the stranger films to come out of Hollywood in recent history, it's a bit of train wreck that's hard not to stare at even if you know you shouldn't.
Men, Women, and Children (Jason Reitman, 2014) – Jason Reitman is a tough director to pin down. He clearly wants to be taken seriously and often attempts to dive into dark subject matter.

The Cobbler Special Presentations I only have 300 words or less to explain The Cobbler, but I doubt I could adequately convey anything about it in less than 30,000 words. How else would one describe one of the most original and bafflingly crazy misfires you’ve ever seen? Like Ishtar, it’s a film that will someday […]
Men, Women, & Children Special Presentations Despite chronically lapsing into the kind of melodrama that only parents who would bubble wrap their kids to keep them from from getting hurt would love, this story of the internets and the interconnectedness of our daily wired lives told through the microcosm of a small Texas town represents […]
TIFF didn't announce an opening night film alongside today's announcements of Galas and Special Presentations for their 2014 festival this September, but they announced plenty to get people excited for the event.
