#REVIEW: LADY GAGA – “ARTPOP”
She's proud certainly of the Final Product, calling fourth Studio Disc Artpop "The Album of the Millennium" and "The Anthem of this Generation". We've already had a sampling of its offerings in first Single Applause, peaking both at number four in Canada and the U.S. Hot 100 Charts. Second Single Do What U Want (ft. R. Kelly) received a rushed release as an official Single after some initial success on the iTunes Singles Chart, intended originally as Promo Single. How though does Artpop ...
#REVIEW: “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB”
2013 certainly will be a year remembered for its outstanding Male Performances and Dallas Buyer's Club, the sixth Film from Canadian Director Jean-Marc Vallée, contains two of them. Driven by remarkable performances from Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, even well before Awards Season, the fact-based Drama has solidified itself as a major Contender in a multitude of categories, getting a headstart with at TIFF '13 Premiere last month.
The Film centers around wild and reckless Ron ...
#REVIEW: “THE DISAPPEARED”
The Disappeared is a Story which needed to be told. Often when we are so immersed in Americana and its inundation on the Canadian consciousness, we often overlook the talent within. After making its way through the Canadian Film Festival Circuit, it now is unveiled for the Public to enjoy.
Directed and written by Shandi Mitchell, the Drama centers on six Men whom are stranded on on the north Atlantic Ocean after their Fishing Boat sinks, leaving them lost and stranded. Without much food or ...
#REVIEW: KATY PERRY – “PRISM”
Remember when Alanis Morissette found her inner-peace on 1998's Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie after shocking and delighting our Pop senses with 1995's Jagged Little Pill? Admit it - you were a bit disappointed. I know I was. Katy Perry however, after catapulting Fans into a state of Euphoria with 2010's multi-Grammy-nominated Disc Teenage Dream, delivers a sense of lightness as she forges ahead in maturity on her latest offering, Prism.
Sonically, the Disc takes the grandness of ...
#REVIEW: “ROMEO AND JULIET”
We all know about Romeo and Juliet, the Classic Story pretty much becoming a compulsory study in High School English Classes across the Country. Director Carlo Carlei and Screenwriter Julian Fellowes join forces, uniting to bring the Story to a newer generation defined by Hannah Montana, Teen Vogue and Gossip Girl. This is not to imply though that this timeless Tale of Romance, Honour and Tragedy is in any way reduced in any form. Carlei manages to remain faithful to William Shakespeare, ...
#REVIEW: “MACHETE KILLS”
Either you want to give Machete a hug or you want to kill Machete. Fortunately for us, we're more the former. Although some might deem it unnecessary, Director/Writer Robert Rodrgiuez has managed to squeeze-out another Story about our favourite knife-wielding Mexican Superhero in Machete Kills.
In this Sequel to the well-received 2010 Film, we see Machete (Danny Trejo) wanted both dead and alive as he is enlisted by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) to take down a ...
#REVIEW: “12 YEARS A SLAVE”
Every once in a while a Film comes along which takes you so deep into dark and uncomfortable emotional territory that you literally walk away from it traumatized and shaken. Such is the case with the ever-powerful 12 Years a Slave, Victor of the People's Choice Award at TIFF '13.
After seeing this Drama based on the Autobiography by Samuel Northrup, one - I am convinced that Director Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame) is incapable of making anything but a stellar Film and tw0 - I am ...
Review by: Jonathan Godfrey for Mr. Will Wong
Warner Bros.' Oscar Campaign continues this week with their release of Gravity. Alfonso Cuaron’s latest Passion Project is as ambitious visually as it is philosophically. Previously Cuaron worked on such Notables as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men. Like the latter Gravity is not only directed by him, but written by him as well. But much of that writing goes unsaid, as the dialogue is minimal and the Story-heavy.
#REVIEW: “GIRL MOST LIKELY”
Although it took a good while to make it to us after its Premeire at TIFF '12, Girl Most Likely, known formerly as Imogene, finally sees a release. To manage our expectations however, it decidedly will get a modest limited release.
Although it certainly isn't on the level of the brilliant Bridesmaids in terms of wit, Kristen Wiig's many devout Fans will delight in seeing the Funnywoman carry much of the weight here as a once-promising New York Playwright paying her bills with a ...
#REVIEW: MILEY CYRUS – “BANGERZ”
All eyes are on Miley Cyrus and fourth Studio Disc Bangerz really is a make-it-or-break-it moment for the Multimedia Mogul in this her transitioning to a legitimate Adult Artist. And we know she's succeeding as increasingly we feel guilty for making Hannah Montana references when mentioning her name in the same breath. If you love Rihanna, you absolutely will get the current Cyrusian Era. The parallels musically speaking are obvious, like the Urban-Electonica-inspired Pop. The messages ...
