    127 Hours (68/42)

    127 HOURS (Carlton) – Surprisingly, some of the people in the theatre had no idea how this movie was going to end. Apparently they didn’t want to be there either, but I was wondering why, if they wanted to talk through a movie and annoy people, that they didn’t go see Justin Bieber’s NEVER SAY […]

    No Strings Attached (67/41)

    by  • 2/10/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    NO STRINGS ATTACHED (Carlton) – I have something of a rule about not paying to see movies starring Tom Cruise or Ashton Kutcher, but I decided I’d risk it this one time. It worked out pretty well – it’s a silly romantic comedy but it’s well acted, and the script isn’t infantile. There’s two ways […]

    Animal Kingdom (57/34)

    ANIMAL KINGDOM (Carlton) – The first thought that should occur to you after the opening scene is that there can be no happy ending to be had here. This is the story of a criminal family as it spirals around the drain, police and legal corruption, and human ugliness. I think that it bears a […]

    The Kids Are All Right (56/33)

    THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT (Carlton) – I’d intended to see another film, but the projector was broken and couldn’t be fixed in time for the screening, so I popped over to this one due to convenient start time. Basically it’s about the kids of a lesbian couple who look up their Donor. It’s a […]

    In Bruges, Wendy and Lucy, Rabbit Hole, Mine (40/22)

    IN BRUGES (Netflix) – An Irish Greek Tragedy set in Belgium. Colin Ferrell was the fucking new guy in the assassination game, and he screwed up. Badly. Now he’s hiding out in Bruges, Belgium, in what he sees as Purgatory. Things go badly. A fantastic film. Thank you, Netflix automated suggestion. WENDY AND LUCY (iTunes) […]

    Love and Other Drugs (13/6)

    LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS (Carlton) – I hadn’t really considered this film, partly because it sounded like just another mindless Romantic Comedy that should star Jennifer Aniston. I looked at Rotten Tomatoes and wasn’t seeing much good news there, either. It almost felt that they were complaining that it wasn’t more preachy on the evils […]

    The Tourist (12/5)

    Okay, a bit of playing with next week’s TIFF Lightbox schedule, and I have A Plan. Actually, I have both A Plan and a TIFF Lightbox membership. What I was calling tagging as CarltonMovieMonth on Twitter is going to become just MovieMonth. I’d call it MovieMonthMostlyAtCarltonButAtLightboxOrSomethingPendingShittyMoviesScheduledAtCarlton but that would really cut in to the length […]

    Fair Game (11/4)

    As I was leaving tonights film, I checked my email, to find that the listings for next week’s shows are out. Only one of the films is getting changed over, and I’m not sure if it’s from bad to worse or from worse to merely bad. YOGI BEAR is leaving, and it’s being replaced with […]
