Interview: Jeff Renfroe and Kevin Zegers

We talk to writer and director Jeff Renfroe and actor Kevin Zegers about their work on the post-Apocalyptic Canadian action thriller The Colony and what it's like to shoot such a cold looking movie in an abandoned NORAD bunker.

It’s a Disaster Review

The independent end of days comedy It's a Disaster focuses on a big name cast acting like unlikeable louts for genuinely great comedic results.

Docs in Brief

A pair of documentaries open for limited runs at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema this week leading up to their prized festival next weekend. Both are histories of a sort, but one (A Fierce Green Fire) works a lot better than the other (Bert Stern: Original Mad Man).

Contest: See THE GOOD LIE in Toronto!

It may not feel like it quite yet, but summertime is right around the corner, and you know what that means - camping and campfire stories! With that in mind, we've got a very special treat for you. Dork Shelf is giving away 10 double passes to a very special screening of The Good Lie, starring actor Thomas Dekker.

My Awkward Sexual Adventure Review

It's sometimes too episodic for its own good, but the filthy minded and good natured sex farce My Awkward Sexual Adventure works towards saving Canadian cinema from becoming too serious.

Molly Maxwell Review

Two excellent leading performances and assured direction help the high school set, Lolita-styled drama Molly Maxwell rise well above its overly chaste and predictable screenplay.

Oblivion Review

Although somewhat lacking in terms of an all around original story, Oblivion is still a great vehicle for star Tom Cruise and even better for up and coming director Joseph Kosinski.

To the Wonder Review

It's as hard to clearly decipher as any other Terrence Malick film since Badlands, but when dealing with a subject as irrational as love like he does in To the Wonder it's fitting and beautiful in equal amounts.
