Review: Force Majeure

Force Majeure (original title: Turist) is a Swedish drama written and directed by Ruben Östlund. The film revolves around a cliché looking family, going on a cliché looking vacation in the Alps. Early in the film,  the father is seen cowardly leaving his family behind, while narrowly escaping a controlled avalanche. Fortunately, not a single person was injured. Unfortunately, the mother is more shaken by his coward act than anything else. Continue reading

TOKYO TRIBE REVIEW

Tokyo Tribe, directed by Shion Sono, is an action packed rap-musical based on the manga Tokyo Tribe2 by Santa Inoue. The film revolves around a bunch of differently themed Tokyo gangs battling each other. There are a lot of pop culture references, e.g. Biggie Smalls and Snoop Dogg, which is quite humorous to us westerners. This is based on a manga, so expect some really over the top cartoon style logic and sequences. Continue reading

Kensington Market

Kensington Market- Toronto’s Diamond in the Rough

As you Torontonians know, Summer is over and we’re now entering the Fall season. For some of you, this is an exciting time, and for others… well… not so much. I’m still not entirely sure about how this makes me feel, but as a Canadian you learn to cope. I guess pumpkin spiced everything and the crunch of fallen leaves aren’t so bad. The weather has been a little bi-polar lately, hence why this particular post is coming to you a little later than I desired. You can imagine how overjoyed I was to wake up last Saturday morning and see the sun peaking through the clouds. I decided that it was an opportune time to finally take a trip down to Kensington Market, and do a little shopping. What better way to spend my Saturday afternoon?

McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon & Grill

“It’s a merger of two atmospheres; an eclectic local bar and a family restaurant, with the emphasis on food value and fun for all” — Simon Hanlon (owner of McSorley’s Saloon)

Should you ever find yourself in the midst of Bayview in search of a cold and tasty brew–or even some pub grub, I suggest you take a trip over to this neighborhoods communally shared favorite hotspot; McSorley’s!  I happen to live about two minutes away from this gem and have been visiting here periodically for well over a couple years… I remember having one of my first legal drinks there and it being one of the greatest moments of my life.

MIBFF film review: “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus”

I got to attend the Canadian premiere of “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus” last Wednesday as part of the 10th annual Montreal International Black Film Festival (MIBFF). The event was held at the Imperial Cinema which was super dope. I’d never been there before. It’s a pretty fancy place to watch a movie in, gotta say. Continue reading
