The Netflix Queue: Stake Land (2010)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds August 16, 2013 0 Comment 5951 views

Full disclosure here, I love speculative fiction. Dystopian, utopian, post-apocalyptic, all of it fascinates me. I love watching how society reforms after a worldwide catastrophe, or adapts to an entirely new reality. In that capacity, Stake Land, from director Jim Mickle, doesn’t tread any new ground: a teenage boy named Martin, entrusted to the care of a […]

The Netflix Queue: The Naked City (1948)

Posted by Toyiah Murry July 31, 2013 2 Comments 4720 views

The Naked City is available for Netflix Instant Streaming. The Naked City is a different breed of cat when it comes to the Hollywood Studio System Era of the 1920 through the 50s. The Naked City unfolds to a jolting start for a crime drama of the period. The usual text laden opening credits are absent opting instead […]

The Netflix Queue: Jackie Brown (1997)

Posted by Toyiah Murry July 29, 2013 2 Comments 9092 views

Jackie Brown is now available for streaming on Netflix. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Quentin Tarantino fan. One of my goals in life is to meet him, proceed to get smashed, and fall into an ongoing conversation about films and their sociopolitical means of changing the world, or something equally awesome. I want […]

The Netflix Queue: Mammoth (2009)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds July 28, 2013 0 Comment 6506 views

Mammoth is available for streaming on Netflix. Michelle Williams is a bit of a Hollywood anomaly: she’s an A-list actress who has never really been in a major Hollywood blockbuster. This year’s disappointing Oz: The Great And Powerful barely made back its budget but was her highest-grossing film to date. She’s been nominated for three […]

Documentary: The Imposter (2012)

Posted by Jessica Finch July 24, 2013 1 Comment 5150 views

The Imposter feels like an elaborate fiction that could only exist as a summer blockbuster – and could not possibly be true. It begins as the story of a missing child from San Antonio, Texas, but then twists into an investigation of stolen identity, and gruesome accusations. In many ways the story is akin to […]

The Netflix Queue: Upstream Color (2013)

Posted by Toyiah Murry July 22, 2013 1 Comment 5294 views

Upstream Color is now available for streaming on Netflix.  Scopolamine is a powerful, dangerous drug. In fact, it’s so damaging that it is widely known as “The Devil’s Breath.” Derived from the flowers of the South American Borrachero tree, mothers of Colombia and Ecuador, where the trees are most prominent, purportedly warn their children against […]

The Netflix Queue: Love (2011)

Posted by Jennifer Reynolds July 21, 2013 0 Comment 7278 views

Love (2011) is available for streaming on Netflix. Did you know the guy from Blink 182 made a movie? I didn’t either, but after being incorrectly informed that Tom Delonge had written 2011’s Love, I knew I had to watch it, if only because I couldn’t fathom the purveyor of pop-punk poop jokes as a screenwriter. […]

The Netflix Queue: The Comedy (2012)

Posted by Toyiah Murry July 15, 2013 0 Comment 5594 views

The Comedy (2012) is available for streaming on Netflix.  I’m huge fan of Tim Heidecker and Eric Warheim. Since adolescence, my sense of humor has been routed in awkard moments, slapstick, farce, and babies farting. I’ve seen every episode of “Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job!” more times than necessary to discuss. I am a […]

The Netflix Queue: Arrested Development Season 4

Posted by Toyiah Murry June 5, 2013 0 Comment 6093 views

Initially when Fox network ran the series “Arrested Development,” the show had trouble staying afloat. It was a darling among critics, but most audiences were unaware of it’s existence. My first introduction to the series was by chance after stumbling on to Season 3’s episode “For British Eyes Only.” For nearly half an hour, I […]

Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Posted by Brandy Dean September 30, 2011 3 Comments 1920 views

Well it’s another week done gone, ladies and gents! The weather in Toronto is a little nutty, ranging from downright nippy to warm enough for a/c in a single day. In true Canadian fashion, as soon as the sun peeks out, every man, woman, and child heads outside under the banner of “this might be […]
