Now showing: Petersons hand over reins after 30 years at the Mustang Drive In

By Olivia Timm ​​Kids on the playground, the sounds of car horns blaring for movies to begin, a near birth, and a wedding are just a few fond memories of the historic Picton Mustang Drive In. ​​Thirty years of memories – of challenges and triumphs – are now at the forefront of Paul Peterson’s mind […]

The Visit - genuinely chilling

The Visit – genuinely chilling

Someone once asked Don McLean what his one monster hit American Pie meant to him. He said it meant he didn’t have to work if he didn’t want to. For the record, his follow up single Vincent was a great song as well. However, the point is sometimes your first hit is the biggest. Enter […]

You don't need to like rap to love this movie

You don’t need to like rap to love this movie

So, I thought I was back before but that was a false start. I needed to recharge and rediscover my love for movies. Or at least my love for writing about movies. I tried to write some reviews mid-summer but I thought my writing was tired and cliched. OK that’s nothing new but I didn’t […]

Calling Sunday's Oscars - sometimes almost right

Calling Sunday’s Oscars – sometimes almost right

S0 – to the people who noticed I have been an infrequent contributor of late. A variety of things ranging from some serious health stuff to just needing to catch my breath, away from this column, resulted in my absence. I am excited to write again and feel there are some good films to talk […]

Bird is the word

Bird is the word

Next week will be my Oscars column and in preparation for that, I went to see Birdman which may or may not get Michael Keaton a Best Actor award.  He’s definitely good in it. In fact he’s the best part but is it enough?  And what is it?  That’s the question. There appear to be […]

In the history of ever, the Theory of Everything

In the history of ever, the Theory of Everything

I have clearly staked out my territory in film these days. I like movies where people are nice to each other. It’s that simple. To quote Don Henley, we all need a little tenderness, how can l survive in such a tasteless age? So I approached The Theory of Everything with some promise. It’s a […]

People laugh out loud love Dumb and Dumber To

People laugh out loud love Dumb and Dumber To

Let’s start with the original. Dumb and Dumber was a huge hit back when Jim Carrey’s career arc was on a meteoric climb and you could cast a fire hydrant as his co-star and it would still be a hit. No offence Jeff Daniels. This was back in the heyday of DVDs. There was no […]

Interstellar: if Armageddon had gone to high school

Interstellar: if Armageddon had gone to high school

I will never be able to do a review of a Christopher Nolan film without referencing Memento. This is a director with vision right out of the starting gate. He tells stories that are thoughtful and thought provoking and sometimes that make sense only to him.  I don’t pretend to understand everything he does, but […]

Gone Girl a nice surprise

Gone Girl a nice surprise

Ok, I have to admit that Ben Affleck has turned into a good actor with a strong career which surprises the heck out of me. It could have gone otherwise. Most people wouldn’t recover from Gigli. Mike Myers is/was a mega star who never recovered from The Love Guru. I think it’s a testimonial to […]

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

So it took me awhile, but I finally got around to reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, let’s start with a simple premise. I was not eager to see this. It looked silly or at least weird.  I mean it has a killer raccoon, a bunch of odd characters that look like they were knock-offs […]
