Walk in not asking for much, be pleasantly surprised. So, to be clear, I wasn’t expecting much, but was hoping for a little. Also, it is worth noting that these days it takes a lot for me to hate a film. Firstly because I appreciate just having a night with my hands free of children and instead full of popcorn, shoved at a possibly dangerous rate…

I am so stoked for these guys – wonderful people I used to play with at Loose Moose Theatre are set to release the sequel to their cult hit movie Fubar. Awesomeness! Judging by the trailer it’s gonna be extremely funny, extremely Canadian and extremely hair-filled.

A little late admittedly, but just stumbled upon this little gem: being an interview (by the wonderful Margaret Pomeranz, no less) with my favourite, FAVOURITE (did I mention favourite?) filmmaker of all time, Tim Burton.

The film, called “The Tree”, was being shot near hubby’s folks’ place (a huge production taking over the tiny town of Boonah, just west of Ipswich, would you believe!), recently debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and starred the very lovely Charlotte Gainsbourg.* *On a side note: She is so adorable on-screen, I…

My head is reeling. Namely cos I just discovered this incredible “global social history experiment”: “Life in a Day”. The concept is this: – on July 24th, anybody and everybody on Planet Earth is invited to film their day; – the filmmakers (did I mention it’s produced by Ridley Scott, y’all?!) will then cut together a documentary titled…you guessed it…let’s move along then; – the film will then be screened at Sundance Film Festival in 2011. This boggles my brain in so many ways, but I’ll just nut it down to a couple here, shall I? 1. How the heck…
