Let’s look back, little monsters, on the night that was the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards. This is what I’d call a capsule review of my evening, and it was filled with Lady Gaga, a little Selena Gomez, and a hint of self-loathing.
Stay tuned tonight for one of the biggest parties of the year as MuchMusic hosts the annual MuchMusic Video Awards at the corner of Queen and John in downtown Toronto.
New this week at a theatre near you: Jim Sturgess, Colin Farrell and Ed Harris star in the survival drama, The Way Back; The Company Men has Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, and Kevin Costner as three men who face life after downsizing; and in No Strings Attached, two friends try to add some spice to their friendship, without any of the commitments.
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.
New this week on home video, Emily Blunt stars in The Young Victoria; plus Steven Spielberg‘s Minority Report and James Cameron‘s epic Avatar both arrive on Blu-ray.
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.
Woody Allen has been changing up his niche/trademark film style lately. Match Point and Vicky Christina Barcelona were departures his classics like Scenes From A Mall, Manhattan, and Annie Hall. Less quirky relationship-driven narratives and more about life-or-death situations that change your destiny forever.
Spies, hitmen, shantytown gangsters and terrorism are all front-and-centre this week with the latest new arrivals on DVD featuring drama and laughs, but only two legitimate must-sees: the dramatic comedy In Bruges, and Brazil’s City of Men.
Three films arrive in theatres this weekend that want to make you laugh, but how many of them will actually succeed? Whether you take your chances with the romantic-comedy-adventure film Fool’s Gold, check out Martin Lawrence‘s latest attempt at comedy, or follow Vince Vaughn on his comedy tour across America, you may still come up short on laughs. Oddly enough though, the big action film of the week, In Bruges, is not only getting some big buzz with critics, but it also has more than enough laughs to make up for all the other films combined.
