comPOSERS Episode 117: Ford v. Ferrari

Happy Father's Day! This week the boys are celebrating with what critics disparagingly called a "dad movie": the actually-rather-brilliant Ford v. Ferrari, with the actually-rather-brilliant score by Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders.

Geek Hard Podcast: Episode 279

On this episode we review The Martian. We also talk with Donna Davies director of Fanarchy documentary and with programmer Christian Burgess from the Toronto After Dark Film Festival.

The Martian Review

The Martian is easily one of director Ridley Scott's best efforts in years, and that's saying something.

The Zero Theorem Review

Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem is a sprawling, thoughtful mess of a movie that tosses a cavalcade of ideas (both visual and philosophical) at the audience with almost reckless abandon.

The Monuments Men Review

While it has some enjoyable moments, a complete lack of character development and an unsure storyline make George Clooney's latest directorial effort, the all star World War II period piece The Monuments Men, a bit of a ponderous disappointment.

Elysium Review

Just as illogical and bearing an intensely preachy, somewhat botched political message this Neil Blomkamp's previous outing District 9 suffered from, Elysium might just be slightly better since it doesn't hinge on a gimmick it can abandon as soon as possible once the filmmaker decides he just wants to start blowing things up and stop making any sense.

Behind the Candelabra Review

Steven Soderbergh's Liberace bio-pic Behind the Candelabra - debuting tomorrow on HBO with a simulcast at the TIFF Bell Lightbox for the Inside Out festival at 9pm - is a tasteful and fascinating look at a kitschy entertainment icon, with excellent leading performances from Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.
