Our film editor was asked to contribute to a list of dozens of "sleeper hits" that can currently be rented free of charge from Bay Street Video in Toronto. Given the vague definition of the term, here is why he chose his films on the list and gives recommendations for other films to pair alongside the free rentals.
Earlier today our head film critic had his faith in movies nearly destroyed by Hansel and Gretel:Witch Hunters, tonight our other main film writer suffers the same nervous breakdown inducing fate fate at the hands of the already infamous Movie 43.
This week on DVD and Blu-Ray, Andrew Parker takes on Mel Gibson in Get the Gringo, Lockout, Friends With Kids, Being FlynnA Bag of Hammers, and the fourth season of TV's Sanctuary, while Phil Brown sinks into American Reunion, Silent House, and Bobcat Golthwait's God Bless America.
What We Talk About When We Need to Talk About We Need to Talk About Kevin, Goon, and the second season of Rookie Blue.
Only sporadically funny, but mostly dull and surprisingly insincere given the three previous films, American Reunion fails to reignite a concept that already seemed to have a very logical conclusion. This pie is pretty stale.
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.
Dork Shelf catches up with Goon actor Liev Schreiber and talks about the extensive preparation required to become a hockey player on film, learning how to fight on ice, and his earliest memories of the game.
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.
Dork Shelf talks to another Goon cast member, Toronto native Alison Pill, about what to look for when choosing a love interest role, working with Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel, and her fear of improv.
The charming and candid Marc-André Grondin talked to Dork Shelf about the upcoming hockey comedy Goon and what it’s like to play someone so irredeemable as his character, how to dress like a douche for the camera, and how challenging it can be to make a French Canadian character funny without turning it into a stereotype.
