    Cannes Review: David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Is Both An Excellent Adaptation & A Rich, Complex Character Study

    "Cosmopolis," an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s typically provocative novel of the same name, is the first feature film since 1999's "eXistenZ" that filmmaker David Cronenberg has directed and scripted. This in part explains why "Cosmopolis" is such a triumph: it’s both an exceptional adaptation and a ...

    Jay Baruchel Goes Punk In Can-Rock Flick 'The Rebel Kind'

    Known as the place of free healthcare, politeness and saying "about" weird, you wouldn't initially think of Canada as a hotbed of punk rock, but for those of you dialed in, you already know the nation has laid claim to many legendary acts over the years (Nomeansno, D.O.A., Asexuals, Th...

    Danny McBride & Craig Robinson Part Of Swelling Cast Of 'Jay & Seth Versus The Apocalypse'

    But It Looks Like Daniel Radcliffe Is OutWe've never liked the term The Frat Pack (for all their potty mouths, the particular comedies that those to whom the term is applied make aren't actually that fratty; Todd Phillips' output is a better fit), but there's no denying that the ever-expanding famil...

    Jay Baruchel to Write 'Baseballissimo' As 'Goon' Sells For Seven Figures

    The awkward kid from "Undeclared" is doing something right. Both as actor and co-writer, Jay Baruchel's name is all over the hockey picture "Goon," a vaguely "Slap Shot"-ish comedy that, until it debuted at Toronto this past week, only had going for it some fairly uninspiring posters, a less than gut-splitting red-band trailer and the weird casting combination of Seann William Scott and Liev Schrieber to its name. But the picture's apparently uproarious, a bloody laugh-fest for the ages, and has exploded the hitherto staid conventions of the hockey picture (whatever they may be), at least until Kevin Smith aims to get his way and begins work ...

    New Posters and Images Debut For 'Goon' (No, Not 'The Goon')

    Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this week is "Goon," a hockey comedy co-written by Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen's writing partner Evan Goldberg, which, it should be noted, is not the David Fincher-produced animation adaptation of the Eric Powell comic book "The Goon" nor is it the two-part Kevin Smith hockey epic "Hit Somebody" (which will presumably be the "Che" of bawdy hockey comedies). What it is, as we noted when the red band trailer debuted, a mediocre-looking comedy about a hockey coach who recruits a thug (Sean William Scott) to stop a violence-prone opponent (Liev Schreiber), notable only for Schreiber's truly aw...
