Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Review (7/10)
(By Erin Cullin)

Of all of the screenings at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, I must admit that the North American premiere of “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” seemed to be the odd man out.

Sure, TIFF has had its share of “avant garde” films, and has never been afraid of a bit of controversy, or nudity, or coarse language - but to take on Kevin Smith, one of the masters of potty-mouthed comedy - seemed to me to be a bit of a stretch, even for the To ...

Review (7/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

W. is the movie that tells us the story of President George W.

Review (7/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

The Core is Hollywood's latest disaster flick to hit the big screen. This time around, the world's inner core has stopped rotating and unless a crackpot team of scientists, astronauts and computer geeks can reboot the core, the world as we know it will be destroyed. The only difference this time is there is no Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Morgan Freeman or Elijah Wood here to save the world. This time it is up to the likes of Aaron Eckhart, Hila ...

Review (6.5/10)
(By Erin Cullin)

As anyone who is a parent to a child under the age of five can attest, once you begin sharing your residence with a toddler, uninterrupted leisure time becomes like an oasis in the desert.

Once upon a time, B.C. (Before Children), I enjoyed a bit of "personal time" outside of work. I travelled. I cooked. I read. And, there were a handful of television shows that I enjoyed taking the time to watch during the week.
