This week on the blog (the first of 2018), we’re going to talk about one of our favourite things in any fantasy story – the signs of Evil.
TIFF 2016 Two Lovers and a Bear review.
Our Film and Arts Editor counts down his top 25 films of the year.
This week's a busy one at the video store, as we take a look at Chronicle, Hard Core Logo 2, a BBC remounting of Great Expectations, Rampart, Albert Nobbs, the first season of Hell on Wheels, Wrestlemania XXVIII, and a very brief, curt message about The Devil Inside.
We take a look back at the winners and losers of the first quarter of 2012 in the world of film.
The latest entry into the “found footage movie of the month sweepstakes,” Project X , has the potential to be a dorm room classic because of it's content, but that won't stop it from being thoroughly misunderstood. It’s a paean to epic adolescent folly that dares to make getting completely shitfaced look as vainglorious as it really is.
Just one month after The Devil Inside seemingly ruined the found footage film for everyone, along comes Chronicle, a sci-fi tinged powerhouse of a movie that single-handedly saves the sub-genre to stand as quite possibly the best example of the format. Even more than the iconic Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, Chronicle dares to tell a dark and bold story that actually feels painfully real and heartbreaking despite being somewhat of a superhero origin story.
