Paramount’s Rocketman is a bold, sentimental, messy, complex, obvious, colourful contradiction. If that sounds to you like a bad movie, you normally wouldn’t be wrong. But this is a movie about Elton John so bold, sentimental, messy, complex, obvious, colourful, and contradictory is just about right. The first place the film goes right is in […]

For the past three years, I’ve been ranking every film I see- just the new releases, from January 1st to December 31st. The rankings are subjective, based entirely on how much I enjoyed and/or connected with or appreciated the film rather than on some sort of objective artistic criteria. Basically, this is a list of […]

When the epilogue ended and the house lights came up in the movie theatre where I saw Love & Mercy, no one moved. The real Brian Wilson was on screen in unflattering close-up as he sang the title song, live and imperfectly, accompanied by barely a breath of sound from the audience watching the credits […]

It’s time, once again, for the On DVD series featuring new releases from Paramount and Elevation Pictures. The Imitation Game (Elevation Pictures, March 31) The re-watch value on this Oscar-winning WWII thriller is high thanks to superb performances from the entire cast (led by Benedict Cumberbatch with a ton of key supporting turns, including Keira Knightley and […]

I started this last year, keeping a list of every movie I see all year (just the new releases) in order to form a definitive set of personal rankings come the following January. My 2014 list started on February 9th when I saw That Awkward Moment starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B Jordan […]

The Imitation Game is well acted, well directed and interesting. It tells the fascinating story of Alan Turing, brilliant code breaker autistic, as he cracks the Nazis unbreakable code and ends (SPOILER ALERT) with his suicide. It’s also kind of boring. When I watched J.Edgar a few years and noticed how by the numbers and […]

On September 21, 2007, the film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford opened in limited release in 5 theatres. My research on its release outside of theatres shows that it screened at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). I am certain it may have been screened for critics at other film […]

I saw 90 movies in 2013 (or shortly thereafter, if we’re being honest- I don’t know how anyone is expected to see all the Christmas releases in one week!). 90 is a lot of movies, or at least it is for me (I head up My Theatre and My TV, My Cinema is Rachael’s problem). […]

In the race to make a movie about polarizing Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, I fear that everyone may have lost. Unlike last year’s not-so-epic Battle of the Snow Whites, I don’t know if there ever was going to be room for two Jobs movies. Whoever made it first was going to be the person who […]

“You are bright, but there is an ocean of knowledge that is still hidden from you.” Da Vinci’s Demons airs on the STARZ network, and aims to tell the story of young Leonardo Da Vinci, inventor, painter, genius, and, judging by his portrayal on the show, huge jerk. Seriously, the Da Vinci that we’re supposed […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The lauded star of the original Broadway musical about the life and work of Charlie Chaplin, Rob McClure’s been widely heralded for his uncanny and heartfelt portrayal of one of the greatest icons in all […]

It’s heartening to realize that we have officially reached the point as a country when a mainstream director known for his tough guy movies and a leading man known for making teenage girls watch Titanic fifteen times in one week can make a movie together about a homosexual love affair. It’s even more heartening to […]
