Horoscopics: The Top 10 Pisces Season Movies

It's Pisces season! Pisces' are the dreamers of the Zodiac, full of intense emotions, they are attuned to vibes that can’t be seen with just your eyes. Here is a list of top ten movies to ease you into the energies of the season.

Heist Review

Gone are the days when DeNiro appearing in a film meant it was probably worth your time, yet Heist proves that he's still enough of a draw to get schlock like this theatrical distribution.

Silver Linings Playbook Review

While he continues to court the mainstream following the success of The Fighter, director David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper in the best performance of his career help make Silver Linings Playbook one of the best Hollywood portrayals of mental illness to date, even if the film's final third is a really standard sort of romantic comedy.

Red Lights Review

Red Lights squanders a great concept, good performances, and wonderful atmosphere in favour of a twist ending so wrongheaded and incoherent that it kills and sets fire to everything that came before it.

The New Old: Not-So-Teenage Wasteland

This week's archival DVD column takes a look at various people of different backgrounds struggling to find themselves, as we look at Martin Scorsese's debut, Mean Streets, a pair of films from Whit Stillman, the first season of the UK TV show The Inbetweeners, and Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law

CONTEST: See RED LIGHTS in TORONTO

Enter to win one of ten pairs to passes to see an advance screening of Red Lights with star Cillian Murphy and director Rodrigo Cortes in attendance in Toronto on Wednesday, June 27th from Dork Shelf and Alliance Films!

Being Flynn Review

Paul Weitz’s Being Flynn is a tonally muddled and confused little movie, but ultimately an interesting one. It wants to be a dark and morally ambiguous slice of urban misery with a redemptive core, yet it never quite achieves that somewhat counterintuitive mash up. However, there are enough interesting ideas and a handful of solid performances (including a long awaited return to form for Robert DeNiro) that make it a hard movie to dislike.
