I’ve spent the better part of the last 2 days curled up popping echinacea with a hot mug of NeoCitran, a big box of kleenex and Netflix. With my duvet wrapped around me and pillows propping me up, I scroll through the endless movies options but I seem to find myself watching schlock! Usually Chick Flicks & Rom-Com schlock.
Help me inte [...]
When I was in my 20s I saw a movie that really settled itself into my psyche – 35-Up. It was a documentary which had been compiled over a period of 21 years, starting by interviewing 7-year old British children at a set of schools from different classes, i.e. socioeconomic backgrounds, about their future and dreams. The film maker, Michael A [...]
New VIP? — Originally uploaded by LexnGer
The Varsity has changed it’s VIP theatres, and not for the better in my opinion. I don’t remember the last time we went to a VIP room, but it wasn’t that long ago. I do remember the big comfy chairs, the side tables for each set of two seats, and the wide aisles betwe [...]
If the movie poster only has the word “Rise” on it, you’d think saying “two for Rise, please” would get you two tickets. Wouldn’t you?
Or, if that didn’t work, you’d think picking the movie who’s title most closely matches the main character’s name would get you tickets. Wouldn̵ [...]

Sure, most sequels stink, but what movie really needs a sequel?
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Bueller Bueller Edition
If we thought we needed a day off when we were in high school, we had NO idea what we were in for.
[2012 Update! Honda's 2012 Superbowl Ad for their CR-V gave us a taste of what I was looking for in this " [...]
I lucked out today for lunch. I was part of an Infest Wisely film shoot at le Petit Dejeuner. Johan invited us to join in on the staff meal and then he whipped up a great, simple pasta with beef, sausage and fresh tomatoes.
My dining companions for both the staff meal and for the shoot were my ultra-swank friends Trollo and Rannie. We were [...]
Bored, slightly dispondent and waiting for Weeds to start, we flipped on over to Channel 300 and rented ourselves a movie.
We decided against the more obvious and mainstream titles and chose something we'd never heard of before, a little film called Grilled.
Now, this is not high cinema, unless you mean the 420 [...]
Bon Cop Bad Cop – Bon!
This movie rocks! And, yes, that is a professional critic's opinion. Of course, my area of expertise isn't movies… but phht, who cares?
I like movies. I like Colm Feore. I like hot Québécois. I like bilingualism. And I can live with hockey if I have to, especi [...]

Romeo & Juliet
I remember seeing Romeo & Juliet in a theatre in West End Saint John with my step-mother. After a little research I found out that it was released in 1968 (ACK! I must have been only 3 or 4 when I saw it.)
It was also he first time the lovers were played by actual teenagers – Olivia Hussey (15) and Le [...]
