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.
In honour of next week's release of Source Code on DVD and Blu-ray, and because it's one of my favorite topics, this week for DVD Tuesday I'm counting down the ten best time travel movies. From science fiction, action, adventure, and horror, to comedy, and even a romantic comedy or two, these movies cover almost every genre, and I'm ranking them not just on how great the movie is, but also, how well they approach a time travel story.
Opening at a theatre near you: Ryan Reynolds stars as the one-and-only Hal Jordan in Green Lantern; Jim Carrey is playing with animals again in Mr. Popper's Penguins; plus a look at Mike Mills' new dramedy, Beginners.
This week on DVD and Blu-ray: Daniel Day-Lewis stars in the musical drama, Nine; things get a little strange in Terry Gilliam's Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus; and Steven Spielberg's moving war epic Saving Private Ryan arrives on Blu-ray.
Happy New Year, everyone. The holidays are safely behind us now, and the epic pile of new releases that came out at the end of 2009 is slowly starting to dwindle. There are a few notable new films on DVD and Blu-ray though, including the wonderfully silly, The Final Destination, the animated sci-fi adventure, 9, not to mention the campy Jennifer's Body, and the animated movie, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.
Opening this week just in time for Christmas holidays, Robert Downey Jr. stars as tough but wise Sherlock Holmes; Daniel Day-Lewis stars in Rob Marshall's musical, Nine; plus a look at Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, It's Complicated, Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and Up In The Air.
