Jackass 3D

October 17th, 2010
Jackass 3D as the name might suggest is the third big screen coming of the now defunct MTV stunt fest featuring Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera along with their respective entourages of masochistic idiots. As usual with these third stage events we’re again obliged to don the 3D specs to enhance the projection of sex toys and bodily extracts along with the litany of creative hair brain stunts ...

October 17th, 2010
RED in DC comic world is a CIA operative who is Retired, Equipped and Dangerous. Falling into this category is Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) - although unrecognizable to the fans of the original graphic novel.

It's Kind of a Funny Story

October 17th, 2010

It's Kind of a Funny Story Is a story that’s more than a little funny and more than a little dramatic. It’s the story of Craig (Keir Gilchrist) a fairly typical teenager with only a slightly higher than typical suicidal tendencies which lately are exacerbated by peer and parental pressure. His passive aggressive parents Lynn (Lauren Graham) and George (Jim Gaffigan) have a career path mapped ...

Secretariat

October 10th, 2010
Secretariat the horse is that well known 70’s triple crown winner jockeyed by Canadian Ron Turcotte that is probably the Sport of Kings greatest racer. Secretariat the movie is the far lesser known but equally compelling story of Penny Chenery whose indomitable spirit matched that of her chestnut colt that she called Big Red and without whom Secretariat may not have become the champion that h ...

Life As We Know It

October 10th, 2010
Life As We Know It actually gets rolling after the death of young parents Alison (Mad Men’s zaftig Christina Hendricks) and Peter (Hayes MacArthur) whose wish is that their best friends take guardianship of their infant daughter Sophie in the event of their demise. It’s hard enough for people who love one another to raise the fruit of their loins through financial woes and lack of sleep but w ...

The Social Network

October 3rd, 2010
The Social Network is the biopic of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg solid as ever) and his rise from virgin geek to world’s youngest billionaire. Re: being the “creator” of Facebook – well that was the topic of much legal discussion which is at the core of enormous tension that made putting this story on film worthwhile. Facebook’s small beginnings were at Harvard University ...

Fubar II

October 3rd, 2010
Fubar II is the hilarious follow-up to 2002’s well received Fubar. We catch up to Calgarians Terry (David Lawrence) and Dean (Paul Spence) as Dean is celebrating the remission of his cancer below the waist even though surgery has left him a “Unitarian” so to speak. The celebration gets a little out of hand after the boisterous Tron (Andrew Sparacino) arrives with his party chainsaw that reduc ...

Let Me In

October 3rd, 2010
Let Me In is a remake of the captivating 2008 Swedish take on the vampire mystique called Let the Right One In. Here Oskar is now Owen and Eli is now Abby and replacing the frigid Stockholm suburb is a seedy neighbourhood in New Mexico (surprising to some also no stranger to sub zero temperatures) but otherwise only the names have been changed. Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a friendless pre-teen ...

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

October 3rd, 2010
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is the latest light hearted comedy from Woody Allen that’s his London version of Modern (dysfunctional) Family and which continues his current love affair with Europe. As usual Allen has managed to tap a litany of acting heavyweights this time mostly British with American Josh Brolin tossed in. He plays Roy a med school grad that turned his back on medicine ...

StreetDance 3D

October 3rd, 2010
StreetDance 3D is yet another eyeful of krunking, locking, popping and breaking as apparently we were left wanting by Step Up, Step Up 2 the Street and Step Up 3D. This newer one dimensional 3D offering comes from Great Britain but still the story line is all too familiar with any excuse being used to bust a move and with the same end game – making it to the big dance competition in New York ...
