Every year, I lament the number of movies I actually get to see at the Toronto Film Festival–and this year is no different–but the highlights still outweigh everything else.
Today was no exception.

Between 10:50 and 11:00 PM (ET & PT) tonight (October 1), Sony Pictures will be rolling out a massive “roadblock” for 2012 that will appear on almost every network across North America, giving viewers a whole scene from the film to get them interested in the upcoming release.

The Coen Brother’s award-winning No Country for Old Men arrives on DVD this week, and while all those awards will certainly draw movie fans in, the best reason to see the film is simply that it is one of the best examples great moviemaking that I have seen in a long time. Other new arrivals include Sleuth with Jude Law and Michael Caine, the dramedy Dan in Real Life starring Steve Carell, and in that other format, Independence Day arrives on Blu-Ray.
