The Canadian Screen Awards 2016: The Mind Reels on the Red Carpet

  Sue and I were absolutely delighted this year, when we were notified by Touchwood PR (an amazing group of smart and dedicated people who continue to help us be the best we can be) that not only would we be attending the Canadian Screen Award Galas, and Broadcast, but that we would have a…

Toronto Screenwriting Conference 2015: Day 2

  Sue and I tackled day 2 of the Toronto Screenwriting Conference at Daniels Spectrum today, and through the course of the day started to come up with the bare bones of a short film we’d like to do, and my brain broke a story that I’ve been thinking about as three sperate tales but…

So ends 2013, just like that! What a year! We have continued to grow and do so much here at The Mind Reels, and we’re hoping for an even bigger year next year! So I decided to throw together a list of the movies I most enjoyed this year, the ones that got to me,…

The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh – DVD Release!

  The fantastic, get-under-your-skin creepy horror film from Rodrigo Gudino, The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh is available today from Anchor Bay Canada.

Sue’s Top 12 Films of 2012 (NOT in Order)

Crimes of Mike Recket (Bruce Sweeney) – I was able to catch this little gem of a film during TIFF, and Mind Reels were even able to catch up with the director, Bruce Sweeney, for a quick chat, as well, so I’ll count myself doubly lucky on this one!  The film stars Nicholas Lea in…

Tim’s Top 12 of 2012

12 is my lucky number, so I figured that would be the number of films I pick for my favorites of 2012, it kind of works, because then that would be one each month, though, for anyone who reads my blog, you’re well aware that I’ve seen a lot more than 12 movies this year!…

The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh (2012)

Back in August, Sue and I stumbled across a booth at Fan Expo that was made to look like a corner of an eclectic, yet strangely lovely room.  But looking at it you just know that there’s something off about it. There’s a large statue of an angel in the middle of the room, bracketed…
