The Martian TIFF 2015 review
A look at this week's blu ray releases of two movies that are extremely different yet brilliant in their own ways: Nightcrawler and Dumb and Dumber To.
If you can still admit that you love the first film, Dumb and Dumber To ups the ante and doesn't disappoint.
The stories of episode three continue to be removed from the flash-forward mystery conflict seen in the season two premiere of The Newsroom. Much like last week’s episode, the show forces us to ‘...wait for it’ without even knowing what ‘it’ is. That being said, there are still some fun moments.
The new season of HBO’s The Newsroom is up and running, and the second episode, "The Genoa Tip," is principally spent maneuvering us towards the season’s larger ongoing stories. We get some long-overdue progress in the Jim-Maggie-Don love triangle, more of intrepid-as-opposed-to-incompetent reporter Neal Sanpat, and more than one genuinely fun scene featuring Sloan.
While The Newsroom's first season often mistook ripped from the headline fact for character and simplistic moralizing for profundity, having watched the first four episodes of season two we are happy to report that showrunner Aaron Sorkin seems to have fixed many of the problems that plagued the first season... and in a few cases replaced them with all new problems.
Films like Looper come around so infrequently, and it’s doubtful that anyone could have seen into the future to know it would have turned out this great. It’s a gutsy and uncompromising genre film that will be hailed as a classic staple by many who see it.
Enter to win a pair of tickets to an advance screening of TIFF's 2012 opening night film Looper exclusively in Ottawa, Halifax, and Winnipeg on Wednesday, September 26th from Dork Shelf and Alliance Films. Five lucky winners in each city will also receive a special edition Looper pocket watch!
Episode four of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, "I’ll Fix You," is a fairly engaging episode which delves the furthest into Will’s personal and emotional life thus far. Despite the strong character moments for McAvoy though, it's beginning to seem as though the female characters on The Newsroom exist pretty much only to instigate plot.
In many of the series reviews I've read of The Newsroom, critics unanimously declared that the pilot, "We Just Decided To," was the strongest of the first four episodes. For me, however, this Sunday's episode, "The 112th Congress," is easily Sorkin's strongest stuff thus far, at least partly because of the episodes effective structural reliance on a device that Sorkin memorably used in David Fincher's The Social Network.
