    TIFF Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Starring Jason Bateman, Adam Driver, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda & More

    The proverb/cliché “you can never go home again” is arguably rooted in dysfunction. Hollywood will always contrive to make characters return home and face family melodrama whether they are willing or not, whether it be a reunion, a marriage, or of course, the one obligation almost impossible to esca...

    TIFF Review: James Marsh’s ‘The Theory Of Everything’ Starring Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones

    Drenched in sunlight, luminously out of focus, the opening sequence of James Marsh’s “The Theory of Everything” certifies one thing right off the bat: it’s going to look very, very pretty. Not exactly the first to come to mind for a Stephen Hawking biopic, but we were so enamored and taken aback by ...

    TIFF Review: Tom McCarthy's 'The Cobbler' Starring Adam Sandler

    Well, we'll say this for "The Cobbler," it's probably the first anti-gentrification, magical shoe, Jewish fable in the history of cinema. But that's about where the praise ends for this baffling misfire from Oscar-nominated writer/director Tom McCarthy. The filmmaker has previously taken seemingly ...

    TIFF Review: Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Equalizer’ Starring Denzel Washington, Chloe Grace Moretz & Marton Csokas

    An unfazed tough guy walking away from an massive explosion in slow motion: it’s a tipping point reached long ago -- this sequence has become a well-worn cliché in the visual vocabulary of pop culture even beyond cinema. Hell, it’s even been celebrated and mocked by the Lonely Island Guys in song. S...
