Looking ahead at the holiday DVD and Blu-ray shopping season, we don't like much of what we see, including Men in Black III, Hope Springs, Ted, The Bourne Legacy, Lawless, and The Odd Life of Timothy Green, but the post-apocalyptic thriller The Day is better than it has any right to be, Laurence Anyways is an exceptional Canadian film, and there's also that Batman movie from that really famous director guy.
This morning, the Toronto International Film Festival announced the full slate of Midnight Madness titles, and it's an extremely exciting line-up featuring films from newcomers and returning vets alike. Midnight Madness is where you'll find world premieres of some of the best genre flicks of the year. This programme is for your inner dork; the place to be if you don't feel up for the stuffiness and pretension found elsewhere in the festival. Crime, action, horror, sci-fi - it's all here.
