Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

October 25th, 2009

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant gleans its name from one segment in a twelve volume series of novels The Saga of Darren Shan written by Irish writer Darren O'Shaughnessy. In truth it’s a hybrid of several of the books which all feature Darren Shan here played by Chris Massoglia. He’s a straight A high school teen with one flaw – he’s the complete opposite of an arachnophobe and when ...

Astro Boy

October 25th, 2009

Astro Boy has remained an endearing and enduring character since his inception in 1951 as a Japanese comic book character that spawned cartoons which became the touchstone of today’s anime. Freddie Highmore is the voice of the robot boy with super hero powers caught between the worlds of humans and androids. With doe eyes and Ronald Reagan hair he’s the exact replica of the tragically killed ...

An Education

October 25th, 2009

An Education takes us back to 1961 Britain. It’s before England was the prime shaker of the 60's swinging and Jenny (Carey Mulligan making an impressive jump from TV to the big screen) is a bright high school girl of 16 from a middle class straight laced family. Her fast track to Oxford is hijacked when she hooks up with a smooth operator several years her senior. He’s David played by Peter S ...

Coco Avant Chanel

October 25th, 2009

Coco Avant Chanel. Yes we’re talking THAT Chanel, a name synonymous with luxurious chic in the world of high fashion. Gabrielle Chanel the company founder worked right up to her death in 1971 but her high end company was born of humble beginning. She was nicknamed “Coco” by her father who just before the turn of the century abandoned her to a French orphanage. Much later as a young woman she ...

A Serious Man

October 17th, 2009

A Serious Man is more brilliance from Joel & Ethan Coen the brothers who won best picture for No Country for Old Men in 2008 and like that film this will leave you with the expectation of a follow-up sequel that will not likely be forthcoming. That and implausible but life altering car crashes are about the only similarities. Where “Old Men” was gritty and violent this hysterical and insightf ...

It Might Get Loud

October 17th, 2009

It Might Get Loud is mandatory viewing for any guitar aficionado that is worth his or her salt and for everyone else it’s a fascinating background sound check of three of rock’s greatest axmen. In 2008 on a spartan sound stage with subdued lighting, Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) The Edge (U2) and Jack White (White Stripes, the Raconteurs) sat on comfy sofas and occasionally jammed between discour ...

Where the Wild Things

October 17th, 2009

Where the Wild Things Are is an adaptation of Maurice Sendak's acclaimed 1963 children's story of the same name. The fact that it was filmed in 2006 and took till now to be released because of differences of opinion between the Director and Warner Bros. doesn’t bode well for the picture. Twelve year old Max Records is terrific as Max, a lonely kid with a vivid imagination. He runs off from ho ...

Law Abiding Citizen

October 17th, 2009

Law Abiding Citizen features Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler, two high powered stars that square off in a high stakes battle of wits. In his best role for some time Foxx is Nick Rice an ambitious DA who plays the percentages for political gain. He makes a big mistake however when he takes a short cut in a grizzly murder case and cuts a deal with Clarence Darby (Christian Stolte), one of the vici ...

Cairo Time

October 17th, 2009

Cairo Time is an uncharacteristic Canadian film in that its characteristics don’t look Canadian. Like Fifty Dead Men Walking earlier this year the setting is foreign as are the principal actors. In this story written and directed by Toronto’s Montreal born Ruba Nadda, Juliette Grant (the always rock solid Patricia Clarkson) is a magazine editor about to rendezvous in Cairo with Mark (Tom McCa ...
