TIFF10: Final Day and Wrap-Up

The 2010 Toronto International Film Festival has come to a close.  In this post, I will post my thoughts on the final three films I saw at the festival before doing my yearly wrap-up. Final Films Girlfriend This is a touching film about a man with Down’s Syndrome, who attempts to begin a relationship with […]

TIFF10: The Last Two Days in Summary

Vera Farmiga and Keanu Reeves I was quite busy during the last couple of days and I did not have time to post reviews.  Also such, I am going to post thoughts on all the films I saw during the last two days into one combined post. Henry’s Crime This film was a nice little […]

TIFF10: My Thoughts on Submarine, Game of Death, and Buried

Chris Sparling, Rodrigo Cort├ęs, and Ryan Reynolds Yesterday was my first full day of viewing TIFF films and I thought that I would post brief thoughts on all of them. Submarine This was a quirky British comedy and definitely one of my favourite films of the fest.  It’s full of a wonderful ironic humour and […]

TIFF10: My Thoughts on Let Me In and The Ward

Let Me In Q&A with Matt Reeves and Kodi Smit-McPhee I saw my first two films of the festival last night with the back-to-back horror films of Let Me In and John Carpenter’s The Ward. Let Me In As you may know this is the North American remake of the 2008 Swedish vampire film Let […]

TIFF10: The Festival is Nigh

The 2010 Toronto International Film Festival begins in just under two days.  I’m all pretty much all set, having acquired a decent set of tickets last Friday (after a nearly four hour wait).  So far, I am seeing Let Me In, John Carpenter’s The Ward, Submarine, The Game of Death, Buried, High Cost of Living, […]

TIFF10: Single Tickets on Sale Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the day that single tickets go on sale for the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.  It’s always a nerve-wracking experience for me, since I always have to work hard to find a decent film list with plenty of back-up choices. In my last post, I posted preliminary film list.  Thanks to the wonderful […]

TIFF10: My Preliminary Film List

The official TIFF schedule was released yesterday and I was busy choosing the films that I plan to exchange my pre-festival volunteer vouchers for.  It was a very tough choice, since I had to work around the six volunteer shifts I have during the festival (which has already eliminated many films I wanted to see).  […]

TIFF10: Real to Reel Thoughts

The 2010 Toronto International Film Festival is only about two and a half weeks away and I thought that I will continue my highlights from the various programmes by looking at some standout picks from the Real to Reel documentary programme.  Thanks partially to a course I took on the genre, I’ve recently acquired an […]

TIFF10: Special Presentations Thoughts

The Special Presentations programme is probably second only to Galas in terms of making up the celebrity presence at TIFF (and in the last few years, Special Presentations started to cost the same premium price as Galas). I already mentioned a few Special Presentations (along with Galas) in a previous post, however now that most […]

TIFF10: Midnight Madness Thoughts

I have always been a huge fan of genre films.  As such, Midnight Madness can be considered one of my favourite programmes at TIFF.  I have seen at least one MM film at TIFF every year since 2006 and this year I am even considering braving an actual midnight screening. Here is a rundown of […]
