After an impressive and genuinely funny first hour, The Best Man Holiday manages to turn to sour, rancid eggnog that negates any and all good will that came before it, essentially forgetting about everything that made the first film from 1999 such a pleasant surprise in the first place.
Gorgeously shot and impeccably directed by Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, Prisoners still has a bit too much going on across its two and a half hour running time. It never fully bogs down until it becomes a completely different – and sadly far less satisfying – movie in its final 40 minutes.

While not a bad film overall, the probably unadaptable On the Road captures an admirably realistic feeling sense of aimlessness and youthful hedonism, but it's hard to shake the feeling that something big is still missing
Tedious, flat and sentimental, Winnie attempts to tell the life story of Winnie Mandela, but it misses the nuances of the historical context and the point entirely.
Enter for a chance to win one of five pairs of tickets to an advance screening of Winnie in Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, or Vancouver on Thursday, October 4th at 7:00pm from Dork Shelf and D Films.
It’s hard not to talk about the World War II action drama Red Tails without bringing up George Lucas. Making a fighter pilot film had always been a dream of the man whose greatest strength was filming dog fights in the skies. Lucas, who allegedly oversaw reshoots and worked a bit on the script, receives only a producer credit here, but he probably should’ve had a lot more input on this tale of the famed Tuskegee Airmen. It’s a film that has its heart in the right place and nothing but the best of intentions, but also one the cries out for some sort of real guidance to hold this debacle together.
