Four couples and a threesome explore love and sex in one of the most talked about movies of the year: Young People F**king.
Forget about the capes, the tights, and the aliens from other planets. This Friday, May 2 a real hero arrives in theatres, and his name is Iron Man.
Born in the pages of Marvel comics in the early 1960s, Iron Man has been slightly reimagined for the modern day, and stars Robert Downey Jr. as wealthy inventor Tony Stark.
The Toronto After Dark Film Festival announced great news for horror film fanatics: this year’s festival is set to run for a total of 8 nights, between October 17 to 24. That’s up one day from 2007, when the event packed in over 6,500 fans.
This 80th anniversary edition of the Academy Awards, the stripped down, but still over-long post-writers strike Oscars were interesting to say the least. A lot of geeky pundits were praising the great year Hollywood had in terms of the strength of the material on display, but I would argue the opposite.
Amidst all the speculation on what caused the death of Heath Ledger and the endless talk about Britney Spears and her sad and tragic life, another actor passed from this mortal coil, and this is a guy that should be noticed and should be talked about.

Over 12,000 members of the WGA have been pounding the pavement and speaking out against their main target â€“ the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. What is at issue here is money (what else is always at issue in labour disputes between unions and powerful companies or associations?)

The Golden Globes have already taken the first bullet, because the WGA wouldn’t give them a special waiver and actors were unwilling to cross picket lines, and I’m betting the Oscars will suffer the same fate.
Mr. Horror himself, Chris Alexander, interviewed Diary of the Dead star Amy Lalonde about her role in George A. Romero‘s …
There’s a certain safety to making a film culled from the ether of imagined reality. Your idiosyncratic characters are sewn together from the mist of imagination so there’s less risk of real people becoming insulted, angry, hurt, litigious or even homicidal as a result of your fictional film. For some strange reason, I decided to stray from those sheltered waters recently by writing a new narrative film based on the life of my grandfather, David Karr.
A lot of packages arrive on my doorstep, but I have to admit I wasn’t expecting The Cox Box. Columbia …
