Enter for a chance to see an advance screening of Men, Women, & Children in Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal!
Top Five Special Presentations Chris Rock has been appearing in films since the 80s, but they’ve rarely ever managed to capture what it is that makes him special. Much like Richard Pryor before him, Hollywood producers saw a brilliant, honest, and vicious stand-up comic and cast Rock in mugging slapstick roles unsuited to his talents. […]
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.
Though it takes a painfully long 40 minutes to even get to its point and to have any fun, the unbeatable comedic teaming of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore rescues Blended and makes it one of the comic actors more tolerable efforts in years.
We talk to comedian Jessica Lowe about her first big on screen role in the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore comedy Blended and the amazing story of how she landed the part in the film, her early days as a performer on stage (and regrettably as a Red Bull girl), her chemistry with Kevin Nealon, and the more fun aspects of playing her character.
Grown Ups 2 sucks, but even by that bold statement it still manages to improve on its rock bottom predecessor.
This week we look at the heavily anticipated DVD and Blu-ray releases of Moonrise Kingdom and Prometheus, which lead off a crowded week where we also look at the Adam Sandler comedy That's My Boy, and four partially Canadian productions: the complete series of The Firm, Red Lights, Surviving Progress, and Crooked Arrows
It’s not going to raise the bar for animated story telling all that much, and it probably won’t do too much to repair Adam Sandler’s tarnished reputation with adult audiences, but the fleet footed and funny Hotel Transylvania manages to be the best thing to have the comic actor’s name attached to it in quite some time.
Since we don't get days off on weeks like this, here's part five of our TIFF 2012 coverage with looks at The Place Beyond the Pines, Seven Psychopaths, Hotel Transylvania, A Royal Affair, Thermae Romae, Smashed, Rebelle, and Laurence Anyways.
Thanks to woefully diminished expectations and a willing desire to offend anyone and everyone in its path, the Adam Sandler comedy That's My Boy still offers more for Sandler fans than his last handful of movies.
Of all the months this summer, June has become so stacked that we had to divide our summer movie preview up into two parts! Today, we take a look at Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, Magic Mike, That's My Boy, Safety Not Guaranteed, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation!
