Films in Brief: 2/16/14

Since all three of this week's major releases all press screened at the same night and time during the week, here now are our reviews of the smart and funny remake of About Last Night and the astoundingly and laughably awful Winter's Tale. Also, an explanation as to why we don't have new reviews for Endless Love or Gloria, we double back on last week's never press screened Vampire Academy, we a look at Pussy Riot: A Punk Rock Prayer, which was the only new film at the Bloor this week, a special sneak at The Bloor tonight, family day offerings at The Bloor and the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and a look ahead to a Lightbox retrospective of some of Jean-Luc Godard's favourite Hollywood films starting on Thursday.

The New Old: Boys, Men, Aliens, and Gremlins

Lots of talk about boys and men this week as Brandon Bastaldo takes a look at the coming of age tale La Haine, Andrew Parker looks at the Quebecois hockey comedy Les Boys II, and Phil Brown looks at Men in Black, About a Boy, and the almost childlike inhibition of Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
