The best family film option this holiday is Song of the Sea, an Irish animated adventure that gives Miyazaki a run for his money.
Those expecting something light from the re-teaming of writer/director John Michael McDonagh and actor Brendan Gleeson in Calvary will be in for a coal black shock, but they're also in for one of the best films of the year.
Edge of Tomorrow is easily one of the best high concept sci-fi blockbusters to come along in a while.

We sat down with Canadian actor Mark Critch to talk about returning to Newfoundland for his role in The Grand Seduction, the culture of the island, lead actor Brendan Gleeson's attention to detail, and we use his famed impression of talk show host George Stroumboulopoulos to talk about the difference between accents and impressions.

A movie like The Smurfs 2 exists for only four reasons (in order of importance):
1. Sell merchandise
3. Steady employment for all involved.
4. Be a bland enough babysitter so that when the film arrives on DVD parents will buy it in hopes of plunking their kid down in front of it for 90 minutes of peace and quiet.
