Rufus Teague BBQ sauces

Getting saucy with Rufus Teague and their BBQ fountain

BBQ season is actually Canada’s longest season. If you’re really a grill-lover, you can almost cook outside all year round, but the real glory days for BBQ sauce and smokers definitely runs from May to September, and now I’m ready to get cooking. This week, Rufus Teague hosted a night of BBQ and sampling at Barque on Roncesvalles in Toronto, and they’ve convinced me to try a few new things this BBQ season.

Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War

Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is a huge payoff for a film franchise that spans 10 years, 18 films, and dozens of characters. And for those of us who waited through all the end-credit scenes of every Marvel film, trying to learn everything we could about this universe of superheroes, Infinity War is a very satisfying ride, bringing together a lot of storytelling that’s been developed movie by movie, year over year.

Ready Player One - Tye Sheridan

Review: Ready Player One starring Tye Sheridan

Author Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One was an obvious choice for a film adaptation considering the amount of nostalgia that has crept into everything these days. The trouble with the book, was always going to be how much time the characters spend re-creating scenes from movies, which would have been dull to watch, and likely hard to get the rights to even do. The book also has a fairly weak, mixed up story, so I was dubious what director Steven Spielberg could do with the concept.
