Drugs, alcohol, and bromance abound in this hilarious holiday comedy with a surprising amount of heart.
TMN's documentary series Reelside consists of six episodes, each concentrating on a different group of filmmakers. Each part is unique but forms a cohesive unit that subtly reinforces pride in film talent that just happens to be Canadian.
A look at a film you might never see suggests that it's just a pretty half-assed, only intermittently amusing comedy.
There’s no logical reason why Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s directorial debut This is the End should work outside of containing sheer, overpowering amounts of talent in front of the camera. It becomes more than the mere trifle most would expect it to be on the surface and instead becomes the funniest comedy so far this summer and one of the seasons most pleasant, yet foul-mouthed surprises.
Wrapping up a week's worth of Goon coverage, Dork Shelf talks to Goon star Seann William Scott about why Doug "The Thug" Glatt was less of a challenge than playing Stiffler a fourth time, what it's like to finally get into hockey after never playing as a kid, and his deep and almost nerdy love of movies.
Calling Goon this generation's Slap Shot would be an understatement. Aside from the obvious surface comparisons to the George Roy Hill/Paul Newman classic about a minor league hockey team going nowhere, director Michael Dowse (Fubar) and co-writer/co-star Jay Baruchel have created a film that outdoes what many hail as the greatest hockey comedy ever made.
50/50 is that rare breed of film that effortlessly combines comedy and drama, creating a memorable cocktail that tackles friendship and family, while testing how far each can be stretched.
