Enter for a chance to win one of five pairs of passes to an advance screening of G.I. Joe: Retaliation in Toronto or Montreal on Monday, March 25th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures.

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

Films like Looper come around so infrequently, and it’s doubtful that anyone could have seen into the future to know it would have turned out this great. It’s a gutsy and uncompromising genre film that will be hailed as a classic staple by many who see it.
