Artificial Intelligence – a Top Ten LIst
August 1st, 2008

It’s human nature — since time immemorial we’ve attributed human characteristics to everything around us. From the Freudian (so we don’t feel so alone in the universe) to the commercial (Pixar’s box office hauls), the reasons why pop culture is full of human-like intelligence are endless.

Four Minutes
April 1st, 2008

Will the teacher show the prot√©g√© the love she’s never known? Will the student bring the damaged older soul back to life? Watch a million other movies from Dangerous Minds and Dead Poet’s Society to Freedom Writers to find out.


Away We Go
November 1st, 2009

So the pair take flight to find a hometown that feels right, calling on friends and relatives around North America in a series of vignettes that teach them how not to be good parents. Between the goofy, talky soccer mum (Janney) to the extreme Aquarian hippie (Gyllenhaal), the two end up more confused than they started.

White Planet
April 1st, 2008

Charting a year in the life of far north Canada would have been a huge task but it feels like an old ABC nature series. In fact it’s not even that informative, glossing over scientific fact in favour of poetic description interspersed with godawful native Inuit music.


The Strangers
September 1st, 2008

First time writer/director Bryan Bertino goes for nerve sawing tension rather than gore, and thoroughly achieves it through inventive camera angles and an unsettling score and sound effects. Unfortunately logic, natural behaviour and consistency are all sacrificed on the altar to achieve such a living, breathing sense of dread, and cliché often curbs an otherwise realistic depiction of events.

Slacker Uprising
August 1st, 2009

It doesn’t feel like a Michael Moore movie, with little of his cult-of-personality showboating. There are several ultimately pointless musical acts and it gets a little repetitive, but the editing manages to generate a sense of slowly building hope which history reminds us wasn’t enough to spare us from Bush’s second term.
