When I first learned that Kevin Smith was going to bring Zack and Miri Make a Porno to the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, I knew I had to get an interview. Out of everyone coming to this year’s TIFF, Smith was at the top of my list. Not just because he made Clerks, but also because he’s a genuine, talented guy with a knack for realistic dialogue, and uncommon, original characters.

If I go through some of my all-time favorite songs, most of them have one thing in common: they’re featured in a movie I also love.
em>Shaun of the Dead reminded me how much I loved Queen with the song “Don’t Stop Me Now.” Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter” leaps off the screen in Closer. Counting Crows had the wickedly addictive opening song “Accidentally in Love” in Shrek 2.
Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading It’s a sad day for me, the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival is practically over. ET Canada has their last party tonight at Casa…
After six days of the Toronto International Film Festival I thought I should find a little time to recap the films I’ve seen. Since red carpets, interviews, and one press conference have also taken up my time though, I still feel like I have a lot of films to see, but here’s what I’ve seen so far.
New Zealander and award winning actor Sam Neill is pulling double duty for this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, appearing in two of the festival’s official selections. Namely, the provocative drama, Skin, and the comedic drama, Dean Spanley.
Call the press a bit pampered at TIFF, but I’m feeling severely deprived of my daily chocolate fix since the bowl full of Lindt truffles emptied today and hasn’t been refilled. It’s a terrible discovery as I sit down to work, but I suppose into every life a little rain must fall.
