Encounter

There’s few things more annoying than the cinematic bait and switch; setting up the idea of one movie in the minds of an audience, then delivering something else. Sometimes it’s because film-makers or studios change their minds, or sometimes the product doesn’t fit the marketplace; delivering a trailer for Sweeney Todd that provided no hint…

News from Catland

The Benedict Cumberbatch cat movie is better than the Benedict Cumberbatch dog movie, in our view. Not just because the dog movie has no dogs, just shadow that looks a but like one, whereas the cat movie has actual cats, lots of them, some of which speak to us via subtitles, but because the cat […]

Vikings (2013-2020)

The History Channel’s flagship series Vikings aired its last episode in December. And though this celebrated work is finally in the history books, its legacy will live on. It isn’t your stereotypical “this is one of the best shows ever” series. It isn’t trying to be anything other than itself. And that’s okay. Vikings is, […]

TIFF 2021: “The Electrical Life of Louis Wain”

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 4 out of 5. A true artist never connects with the real world. In fact, he/she creates one’s own where all others can join in to admire the brilliance of their craft. Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch) is extremely talented. He is qualified to do all sorts of jobs, if he wishes to. His […]
