    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...

    TIFF Review: 'Pawn Sacrifice' Starring Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber, Peter Sarsgaard & Michael Stuhlbarg

    As Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) says in "Pawn Sacrifice," chess is a game of unlimited options, but there's "only one right move."

    TIFF Review: Kevin Smith's Horror Story 'Tusk,' Starring Justin Long, Michael Parks & Johnny Depp

    TIFF Review: Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young' Starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver & Amanda Seyfried

    It's too bad Judd Apatow has already taken the title "This Is 40" because that's the perfect description of Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young." The writer/director has previously explored midlife crisis, malaise and discontent in efforts like "Margot At The Wedding" and "Greenberg," but his latest ...
