The 2015 Toronto International Film Festival will deliver hundreds of films for cinemaphiles before it wraps up on September 20, and I have been trying to watch as many films as possible to give you a sampling of what's unspooling this year. Here are fives reviews to get you started: February, Into The Forest, Land of Mine, Miss You Already, and Remember.
Josie Ho has quite a few titles, and each of them is more impressive than the last. She's a musician, a fashion trendsetter, an actress, a film producer, and most recently she was knighted this summer in Italy as Lady Josephine courtesy of Prince Stephan of Montenegro.
Somehow director Guy Ritchie really did it. He's made the sixties look stylish again, and while I'm not eager to try out any of the fashion myself, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. lives in a hip, cool, Cold War reality where spies are back in style, and the United States and Russia really can't stand each other.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. held its Canadian theatrical premiere in Toronto on Tuesday evening this week, with all four stars--Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, and Elizabeth Debicki--showing up at the Shangri-La Toronto for a special pre-screening reception, presented by Audi, followed by a red carpet at the Scotiabank Theatre.
Ethan Hunt, AKA Tom Cruise in super-stunt mode, is back once again in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, the fifth film in the franchise that now spans 19 years, but this time Hunt has a fresh face helping him kick ass, and she's ultimately one of the main reasons the film works so incredibly well.
Thanks to the good people at Marvel Studios, The GATE is thrilled to present a Canadian exclusive clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron: “Fight for Sokovia". The scene, which is late in the film, features all of th...
My expectations for Marvel's Ant-Man were pretty low going in. In my mind, if there was a Marvel film that was going to fail, it was going to be Ant-Man. The character just didn't strike me as all that interesting, and the departure of previous writer and director Edgar Wright had me wondering what kind of mess might be waiting for filmgoers.
Director James Ford Murphy knows how to sell his first film, Lava, with just a song. He should, since that's how he first pitched the film to Pixar, where he's worked as an animator since working on A Bug's Life in the late 1990s.
I went in to Terminator Genisys very interested to see where they were taking this thirty-year-old franchise, especially since I knew Paramount had already gave the green light to two sequels before this film was even close to being finished (partly due to the fact that all rights to this franchise revert back to James Cameron in 2019). And the start of the film--the first half hour--was very interesting indeed, but then it just seemed to turn in to a Roadrunnner cartoon.
Despite all appearances, and the telling delay in the Canadian release of Debug, I really, really wanted to like actor-turned-director David Hewlett's latest film.
