Into the Forest TIFF 2015 review
Somewhere between a natural continuation of the story arc kicked off by the previous “proper” entry of a franchise and a complete and total retconning of the same lies X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s a stronger film than its immediate and proper predecessor, but thanks to some time travelling and convenient plotting, it essentially undoes most of the plot elements that didn’t work the last time out.

While not one of the more disposable films in the Woody Allen cannon, the filmmaker's latest To Rome With Love only manages to be a mildly amusing mishmash of four separate, mediocre, half-baked stories instead of just one really good one.
There have been a number of films made in recent years that are use the concept of average people becoming costumed vigilantes. From last year’s ambitious Watchmen adaptation, to the Canadian indie flick Defendor, and more recently the big screen version of Mark Millar’s ultraviolent Kick-Ass, normal people putting on tights and bashing criminals in […]
Christopher Nolan won himself a great deal of opening weekend cred thanks to The Dark Knight; he is likely going to need it for Inception. It’s not that Inception is a bad film—the movie is actually one of the most original major releases to come along in ages—It’s that the film feels too cerebral for […]
