Our film editor was asked to contribute to a list of dozens of "sleeper hits" that can currently be rented free of charge from Bay Street Video in Toronto. Given the vague definition of the term, here is why he chose his films on the list and gives recommendations for other films to pair alongside the free rentals.
Fast & Furious 6 somehow manages to clear the already high bar set by the series' previous entry in terms of action and excitement. It's also the best of the series and a darn good movie overall perfectly designed to give the audience exactly what they want. It's what this type of blockbuster filmmaking should always be like.
Welcome to Michael Bay’s American dream.The world of the thoroughly batshit insane and coal black comedy Pain & Gain is one of dreamers who are willing to cause abject nightmares to those around them to achieve their ends, and there’s no better vulgar auteurist capable of bringing this South Florida sleaze-fest to the big screen than Bay.
Enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of passes to an advance screening of Pain & Gain in Toronto or Montreal on Wednesday, April 24th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures.
Full of whiz-bang special effects, plentiful explosions, and pithy one-liners, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is slightly more fun than its predecessor, but it also has way too much going on in too short of a time frame to actually be a truly great movie.

When considering whether or not you want to watch Journey 2, the only question you have to ask yourself is: “Do I desperately need to see The Rock play a ukulele and bounce berries off his pecs in 3D?”
We talk to Journey 2 director and Newfoundland native Brad Peyton about the challenges of shooting underwater, adapting Jules Verne, being in awe of Michael Caine, and getting The Rock to play the ukulele.
