New to Theatres This Weekend: The November Man, As Above So Below, The Congress

As we’ve come to expect, the summer movie season will go out with a whimper rather than a bang by pitting two somewhat uninspired new releases against the reigning summer champion Guardians of the Galaxy. Roger Donaldson’s The November Man will try to hang a new spy franchise on former 007 Pierce Brosnan while As Above So Below offers the requisite low budget horror fare. Jon Favreau’s Chef is also taking advantage of the lack of competition by heading back ...

Life of Crime Review: Jennifer Aniston & John Hawkes Bring Leonard to Life

Elmore Leonard is not the easiest of authors to bring to the screen. For every Out of Sight or Jackie Brown, we get a The Big Bounce or Be Cool.

Hawkes is Louis Gara, a two-bit criminal who may have found himself the big score. He and his partner, Ordell Robbie (Yasiin Bey), have ...

Jon Stewart’s Rosewater Trailer Starring Gael Garcia Bernal

One of the biggest unknowns heading into awards season this year has been Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, which will soon be premiering at festivals in both Telluride and Toronto. As you might expect from the host of The Daily Show, the movie does have a political angle to it, although aside from some touches of dark humour, it doesn’t appear to be all that funny. Early reviews have just hit the web and they appear to be positive, but ...
