Can't miss summer releases missed by a Country mile

Can’t miss summer releases missed by a Country mile

So, at the start of the summer I always write a column guessing what the box office hits of the summer will be. It’s an imprecise sort of speculation and the only time I even reference it is on those rare occasions when I get something right. This might be one of those occasions, but […]

Third time no charm for tired and tedious Expendables

Third time no charm for tired and tedious Expendables

Amidst the news storm that accompanied Robin Williams’ death, was the loss of another icon. Lauren Bacall died Sept. 16th after years of declining health. She was beautiful, talented and could tell you to go to hell and make you look forward to the trip. Her voice was legendary. Sultry and husky. She had a […]

Six Million Dollar Arm surprisingly good

Six Million Dollar Arm surprisingly good

I understand that my movie preferences are evolving. I find that more and more I am looking for movies where people are nice to each other. I think I’m just experiencing some Breaking Bad Game of Thrones burn out. The problem with all those shows is that when you are going for hardcore gritty you […]

Our world is a little darker without Robin Williams

Our world is a little darker without Robin Williams

Before I write about Robin Williams, I need to share some background with you. For 25 years I worked with youth in crisis and then survivors of abuse. I saw first-hand  the carnage and havoc suicide causes in the lives of people who at tempt, and their families. The devastation. A few years ago I […]

Sun has set on Planet of Apes franchise

Sun has set on Planet of Apes franchise

  At the start of this summers movie season if you had told me that every single blockbuster was going to be a mega bust I would have told you you were crazy and maybe even suggested your parents were total strangers when you were conceived. At least you weren’t crazy. It’s been a hugely […]

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

The Fault in Our Stars first really good film of the summer

I’ve seen the first really good film of the summer. The Fault In Our Stars is a hugely successful book written by John Green and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber. I don’t know Green’s work, but Neustadter and Weber wrote 500 Days of Summer which is a little gem […]

Couldn't watch Transformers 4 and 22 Jump full of wimp and wuss

Couldn’t watch Transformers 4 and 22 Jump full of wimp and wuss

OK so here’s the thing – Transformers 4 is about to become the biggest movie in the history of ever thanks to the Chinese box office. For a while now I have suggested that the domestic release was more an advance trailer for the DVD and nothing about the fact that North America has now […]

A Million Ways to Die a lengthy SNL sketch

A Million Ways to Die a lengthy SNL sketch

  I’ve told this story before, but I forget enough in my daily life that it all somehow seems new. I had a friend who worked at the BC censor board. He was one of the last walls between the filmmaker and the public. Some self-appointed arbiter of morality. Or in Daryl’s case, whim and […]

Blended is bland with funny bits and almost a plot

Blended is bland with funny bits and almost a plot

I was watching a documentary about the Eagles this morning and the making of the Hell Freezes Over Tour and so I was already prepped for something historical. If something as improbable as The Egos reuniting can come together, then I suppose I can lift my lifetime ban on saying positive things about an Adam […]

XMen Days of Future Past tricky but good, pure fun

XMen Days of Future Past tricky but good, pure fun

I think all of us are suffering from super hero burn out and I’m no exception. Captain America was great and Spider-Man had a certain charm,  but it’s hard to get psyched for much of anything. I lost interest with XMen in one of the previous versions. Not sure which one it was, although the […]
