    Review: Post-Apocalyptic B-Movie Mash-Up 'Bounty Killer' Starring Matthew Marsden, Christian Pitre And, Um, Gary Busey

    There needs to be a name for this genre of post-apocalyptic genre mash-ups with ironic musical cues, retro sexuality, and post-modern self-awareness because, quite frankly, there are just too damn many. Down the pike comes another one, "Bounty Killer," adapted from an obscure comic book, a market th...

    TIFF Review: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her' Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Viola Davis & More

    You’d think that with all the sappy romantic comedies that exist, "When Harry Met Sally" and Richard Linklater’s 'Before...' series (just to name the most beloved), that relationship films have run their course and said all they’ve got to say.

    Toronto Review: Penis Mutilation, Rock Masturbation, and Other Wacky Ingredients Turn Kim Ki-duk's Wordless 'Moebius' Into a Memorable Provocation

    Playwright Tracy Letts' crowded ensemble drama "August: Osage County" centers on a massive family engaged in constant squabbling, which means that it demands a cast willing to engage in fiery theatrics.

    TIFF Review: 'August: Osage County' Starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts & More

    It's undeniable that, at least on paper, "August: Osage County" looks like a can't-miss proposition.

    TIFF Review: EPIX Doc 'Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story'

    When it comes to men's magazines (the kind with nude girls in them and not the ones, say, stuffed with muscle cars or expensive suits), Playboy is always portrayed as the classier affair, one modeled on sleek modernity, while Penthouse is seen as an altogether more vulgar enterprise.
