(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on April 5, 2013.) This review is dedicated to Roger Ebert, who passed away on April 4, 2013. Miguel Gomes’ Tabu is an odd bird of a movie, and I will be forming my opinion on it as I write, as I really don’t have one at […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on April 5, 2013.) Back in 1994, when my family was on Christmas vacation, we managed to catch an airing of one of Green Day’s concerts on MTV (the entirety of which can be found here), where they were shown maniacally darting about the stage, writhing and […]

The Croods

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 22, 2013.) Of late, I noticed that our video collection is skewing more to the DreamWorks side of animated movies instead of Disney/Pixar. That’s not a slight against any other animation houses – it’s just that my 2-year-old seems to like Puss in Boots and […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 22, 2013.) What do you do when you’re watching a movie that doesn’t really challenge you, offend you, or do anything to provoke any kind of visceral response, yet manages to be sweet? This is the debate I’m having as I recount my thoughts about […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 22, 2013.) Canada’s entry into the 2012 Oscar race, War Witch, is a stunning and frightening film. It’s frightening to me because in my world, when I see children in movies, they’re usually going on a treasure hunt, trying to rescue a Babe Ruth-signed ball […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 19, 2013.) In the music industry these days, it seems that there are two types of pop stars: the flash-in-the-pan types that don’t last more than one song, and then there are the timeless artists that have grown out of their niche with each successive […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 15, 2013.) Director Park Chan-Wook has never been one to shy away from the darker side of the human psyche, as his cinematic output in his native Korea so readily shows. The most-known of his films to Western audiences, Oldboy, was based on a Japanese […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on March 15, 2013.) I have just finished watching Harvest of Empire; the final credits are rolling up the screen and I’m sitting here in stunned silence. The American news really makes a big deal about our immigration problems here, yet a lot of our pundits and […]
