An American original that sets the bar pretty high for teen comedies in 2010.

YOUTH IN REVOLT is a buoyant youth picture that smells like teen spirit. For that, we can thank the creative team behind the movie, who clearly had the right intentions (and the credentials to back them up) in bringing C.D. Payne’s cult novel to the screen. Director Miguel Arteta obviously has an affinity for outsiders (see CHUCK & BUCK and THE ...

Jackson gives the novel’s rich tapestry of complex characters and relationships short shrift, instead focusing on the cinematic possibilities of Susie’s afterlife.

Directed by Peter Jackson, THE LOVELY BONES is one long bad trip of a movie – perhaps the most disastrous film adaptation of a major American novel since Brian De Palma brought Tom Wolfe’s THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES to the screen. Frankly, I’m surprised it didn’t work, because if anything this project seemed to represent the ideal marriage of a ...

Symbol

Genre: Comedy

The weirdest, funniest movie in the festival.

Symbol is Japanese comic legend Hitoshi Matsumoto’s second feature, the follow up to his lovably weird, boldly alienating and completely hilarious Dai Nipponjin (aka Big Man Japan, 2007). Two seemingly unrelated stories play in parallel in the film. In one, Mexican luchador Escargot Man must face the seemingly insurmountably strong and youthful ...

Horse, Cowboy, Indian, Seamonster and Farmer: The Holy Story Pentangle.

A Town Called Panic is the anarchic, frenetic feature film version of the popular Belgian cartoon of the same name. Technically crude but all the better for it, the film like the cartoon is stop-motion animated using what look like (and in some cases are) the cheap plastic toy figurines that came by the dozens in bags, complete with plastic bases ...

I got to see an adventure movie. Why does that sound so weird to say?

Michael J. Bassett’s adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s Solomon Kane is the exact kind of film that I’d have somehow managed to see when I was 12 or 13 and fallen completely in love with. Thanks in part I guess to the fact that I haven’t grown up that much, I still love it. A pure, unsophisticated (in the best, most honest way) adventure film not ...

REC 2

Genre: Horror

Take The Lady in the Lake and add demon zombies.

Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza’s follow up to their 2007 sensation [REC] (remade in America as Quarantine) [REC]2 picks up the story just 15 minutes after the events of the first film. An apartment building has been sealed off (ostensibly by the Department of Health) to contain a viral outbreak inside. One that seems to be turning the occupants into...

Girls have boobs, on their chest. That's where they are.

Ever since some young dude drank a gourd-full of hallucinogenic wasp paste and stumbled out into the barren tundra to become a man, he alone against the cruelty of nature, people have been subjecting themselves to uncomfortable extremes in the name of self discovery. People free climb sheer rock faces. People run hundred mile races through the ...

I loved it, everybody else loved it, you'll love it.

Sean Byrne's The Loved Ones is a charmer for horror fans, a charmingly revolting mash up of Hostel and The People Under the Stairs, with none of the former's glitzy nihilism and enough of the latter's goofy implausibility to create a harrowing, hilarious amalgam that'll entertain the hell out of you without making you feel bad about yourself as a ...

Now we're talking Midnight Madness. This is the stuff here man.

Building on the genre-clash crossover theme that was solidly established the first night of TIFF's Midnight Madness with the slasher flick cum teen girl comedy Jennifer's Body, programmer Colin Geddes has delivered another interesting hybrid: the futuristic, sci-fi-vampire film Daybreakers. Set 10 years into the future and after the bat-spawned ...

Romero keeps surviving, and probably always will.

Zombie movie legend George A. Romero and his recent films occupy an odd niche, to say the least. Having basically invented the zombie genre while at the same time arguably perfecting it with his first film, 1968's Night of the Living Dead, Romero made two sequels that each tried to expand on the social commentary-amidst-the-carnage he pioneered in ...
