Pirates are cool. Forget about the scurvy, the diseases, and the risk to life and limb–the life of old timey pirates looks badass, and Rare’s Sea of Thieves is an attempt to put a comic spin on that cool factor, and let you live out the joy of the high seas with a group of friends.
We chatted with Hereditary filmmaker Ari Aster about the emotional impact behind his film, his influences, the terror of showing audiences an essentially unfinished version of the film at Sundance, battling audience complacency within the horror genre, and keeping track of his film’s numerous metaphorical references
Like a lot of people, my phone comes with me everywhere, and it’s my go-to device for capturing the moment. From events, to travel, and heading to the park with my family, my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is my favorite device for photos and video because of its dual cameras, loads of features, and great performance in all kinds of lighting conditions.
We catch up with Oscar winning filmmaker Morgan Neville to talk about his latest documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, a highly anticipated look at the life and work of Fred Rogers, opening exclusively in Toronto on June 8 and expanding to additional cities in the coming weeks.
For his feature directorial debut Black Cop, Canadian director, writer, and actor Cory Bowles (best known for his comedic work on Trailer Park Boys) holds nothing back and lets loose a scathing, terrifying satire about racial profiling that’s appropriately thoughtful and squirm inducing in equal measure.
Paul Bettany has earned “double bobble-head status,” and apparently his kids are pretty impressed. To earn that status, he played the robotic superhero, Vision, in Marvel’s Avengers films, including the massive hit Avengers: Infinity War, and now he’s the villainous Dryden Vos in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Although it’s probably unnecessary at this point, and it gets off to a rocky start, Solo: A Star Wars Story remains a likable, entertaining bit of Hollywood blockbuster silliness.
Twenty years ago, our vision of the future was pretty spectacular, and obviously way, way off. Where are our jetpacks, hoverboards, flying cars, and robots? What I love though is that the future is starting to look easier and more comfortable, without any of the wacky new gadgets we might have dreamed about. If you want an example of that, just look at the Samsung Connected Home, a space that Samsung Canada set up at their head office to show off the possibilities for a smart and connected home.
Google Home Max arrived in Canada today, and I’ve been testing it for nearly a week now, and it’s hard to find many complaints with a speaker that absolutely hits all the right notes (pun intended), and delivers bass that is awe-inspiring, especially if you’re used to audio from most small speakers, computers, laptops, or televisions.
Boasting a duller, nastier wit than its predecessor and a newfound brush with sincerity, the adult oriented super-anti-hero sequel Deadpool 2 lacks the anarchic glee and spontaneity of its blockbuster predecessor, but it still has a lot to enjoy.
