The Death Of Stalin Review

The Death of Stalin is probably the finest and funniest political satire since the last time Armando Iannucci pointed his poison pen at the subject

Fast Five: Jim Jarmusch’s Cinema of Cool

In honour of the TIFF Bell Lightbox kicking off a retrospective dedicated to one of America's best filmmakers this week, we count down our five favourite films from the reigning king of indie coolness, Jim Jarmusch.

Monsters University Review

As far as Pixar movie standards go, Monsters University is a bit of a mess with sloppy plotting and and unclear motives as to who the movie is actually made for... and yet, it's still extremely endearing and funny getting a solid B- for its efforts overall.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Review

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a thoroughly average Hollywood comedy. There are funny moments throughout and it’s a big glossy production that hits all the expected notes before fading to black at this the right time, but it also meets those expectations to the point of reaching wild heights of predictable dullness.

Monsters, Inc. 3D

Monsters, Inc. solidified the Pixar formula and proved that clever, emotionally rich, and technically stunning work could be produced by the CGI dream team at will. Now that the film is (get ready to feel old) 11-years old and sliding back out into theaters in 3D, it’s clear just how special of a family flick it was. The movie remains just as funny and warm as ever, with a rather ingenious central concept strong enough to make the upcoming sequel something to look forward to.

The New Old: 20 Years of Tarantino

We take a look back on the career of Quentin Tarantino as Reservoir Dogs celebrates it's 20th anniversary with a blu-ray box set including almost all of the feature films he's been a part of.

Hotel Transylvania Review

It’s not going to raise the bar for animated story telling all that much, and it probably won’t do too much to repair Adam Sandler’s tarnished reputation with adult audiences, but the fleet footed and funny Hotel Transylvania manages to be the best thing to have the comic actor’s name attached to it in quite some time.

Boardwalk Empire Episode 2.5 Review

This week's instalment of Boardwalk Empire brought us a heaping portion of the old ultra-violence that we so cherish. It's Veteran's Day in Atlantic City, a city “built to help people forget” says Nucky in his speech to the throngs gathered to commemorate the occassion, “but today is for remembering.” Is it ever. Nothing in this episode seems to be forgotten or forgiven – every past slight is remembered and every debt paid for.
