Opinion: The End of my Sinemia Experiment

A few days ago, I decided to cancel my membership to the Sinemia Private Movie Club. I have been a member of Sinemia since it launched in Canada eight months ago. As someone who sees a lot of movies over the course of a month, being a member of the service was a real money-saver […]

Trailer: The Mule

Clint Eastwood makes a return to the big screen in The Mule. A decade ago, it was thought that 2008’s Grand Torino would mark Clint Eastwood’s final time in front of the camera.

Opinion: The Cinematic Acid Trip of 2001: A Space Odyssey

I thought I would write about my experience seeing 2001: A Space Odyssey this past week at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. This was my second time seeing the film, with my previous viewing happening way back in January 2011, also at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Italian director Luca Guadagnino follows the award winning success of last year’s Call Me by Your Name with this remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria. This new version stars Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton, both have whom previous worked with Guadagnino in 2015’s A Bigger Splash.
