Trailer Tracks: Back To The Future (1985) – Robert Zemeckis

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love this movie, and after all these years there isn’t a thing in this that has changed my love for it. A fun time-travel story, a brillilant cast, including one of my heroes, Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and Thomas F. Wilson. The…

Hammertown Comic Con

Sue and I, with our friend and camera operator Kayleigh Book in tow, tackled the Hammertown Comic Con in Hamilton this past weekend, and we had a lot of fun! There were 3 Back To The Future guests, a couple of DeLoreans, some fantastic costumes, great art, and some cool folks to chat to! Sue…

Back To The Future (1985) – Robert Zemeckis

I love this movie so much! It’s always a joy to watch, and it puts me right back in 1985, I remember seeing it, reading the novel on my way to school, I remember playing the soundtrack over and over until the ink of the track listings was completely faded, I even got myself a skateboard,…

Fan Expo Day 4

Somehow, Day 4 of Fan Expo has come and gone – and it’s all over for another year. Wow. It’s been an amazing weekend, and each day just seemed to hold the bar or raise it in terms of awesomeness. This morning should have been a sign! Sue and I checked in at the Media…

Detention (2011) – Toronto After Dark

The 2nd and final evening of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival – Summer Nights program took place Wednesday eve and I was there. Well, to be clear I was there for the first one. As much as I wanted to see the second feature V/H/S I have a problem with found footage films in…

Continuum S01 E05 – A Test of Time

This week, series creator Simon Barry, and writer Jeff King bring us my favorite episode of Continuum so far, by introducing a lot of things to think about in terms of timelines in paradoxes. Because this week, Kagame (Tony Amendola) and Liber8 spring into full Terminator-mode, going after CPS Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) through…

Niagara Falls Comic Con!!

Chris Dabrowski Co-Owner of the show, who handles the celebrity bookings, as well as the PR & Marketing for the event kindly set us up with…

Romancing The Stone (1984)

“Romantic novelist my ass!” “The Joan Wilder?!?” I love this movie, it’s just so much fun, and has so many wonderful lines that tend to fall from my lips on a regular basis. In the early 80s, everyone was kind of keen to cash in on the big adventure stories ever since they saw what…

The Con is Over – What Now??!!

So Wizard World Comic Con is now behind us… What will Sue and I do next to get our geek fix? We’re going to Niagara Falls on June 9th! I’ve going on a press pass and will have a chance to chat with the guests and wander about and document the entire convention. Thank you…

Film Scores – A Whistler’s Tale

I’m a whistler, and a dreamer… and “Binary Sunset” is one of my favorite thoughtful, hopeful and slightly sad things to whistle, especially when I’m thinking about my future, and watching the horizon. Whistling. I do it all the time, and I carry a huge repertoire in my mind, and on my ipod. In the…

Back To The Future at the Digital Film Festival

There are few movies guaranteed to plaster a smile on my face every time I see them. Back To The Future is, however, one of them. I actually realized this today when I was watching it for who-knows-how-many-times-I’ve-seen-it. In between mouthing my favorite lines as they came up, there would be a huge grin plastered…
