Evolving with Wango Films

Intensely loyal, wonderfully creative and collaborative, down to earth, and constantly setting new challenges for themselves. With their new feature, 88, hitting theaters, we thought it would be an ideal time to reflect on the progress, and our association with Wango Films, known to us as April Mullen and Tim Doiron. Sue was there from…

Dead Before Dawn 3D – April Mullen

Last night, at select theatres across Canada, the zemons arrived!  Half zombie, half demon, this new brand of terror has slowly but surely been taking the world by storm, and last night, it was our turn.  A homecoming, if you will, since the halfbreeds were essentially created right here in Canada – in Niagara Falls,…

Bomb Girls – Don’t Let Go

On every occasion, Tim does the heartfelt and wonderfully-worded write-ups to each of our our beloved Bomb Girls episodes.  So close to the end, now, I feel it is only proper that he should also do the final two posts of the series.  However, upon learning yesterday that our girls will not see a Season…

Lost Girl S03E10 – Delinquents

After the middling affair of the Ceremony last week, I still think there are lots of layers that can be found in it, but it wasn’t my favorite episode of the season, Lost Girl brought in the heartbreak, the set-up and the guest cast and crew! Scripted by Lost Girl’s creator Michelle Lovretta, directed by…

Patch Town Set Visit

In a destitute looking corner of Toronto (though it’s actually only about two blocks from my own apartment) a battered grey factory building stands defiant,  imposing itself against the chilling winter wind.  Inside it, however, a fantastic world is springing to life. A world that was first imagined by Craig Goodwill in his imaginative and…

Fan Expo Edition!

So Fan Expo is over for another year, sigh. Oh well. Sue and I had a great time, and had some wonderful chats, and there are chats we missed out on that we’re still trying to run down, as well as more still to come, but this week, we have an amalgam of interviews over…

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…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

Fan Expo Day 2

Sue and I checked in bright and early at the Media Desk for Day 2 of Fan Expo 2012. After such an awesome start yesterday we couldn’t wait to see where this day took us… First off, we decided to prowl the floor, and take in the incredible deigns, sets, sketches and armatures of Disney’s Frankenweenie exhibit….

Fan Expo Day 1

Thomas Sullivan the Cat, thought 6:30 was plenty of time for a sleep in this morning and made sure I was up in lots of time to greet my favourite time of year – Fan Expo!!! So after a quick prep, making sure I had everything I had, I hit the TTC. I was off to…

Trailer: Dead Before Dawn 3D

Mere months before we officially became the Mind Reels, Tim and I had the pleasure of spending a night on the set of the newest film from Team Wango, Dead Before Dawn 3D. It’s Canada’s First live action 3D film, and is helmed by the first woman to undertake such a task, our lovely friend,…

Some of My Fave Canadian Films!

It’s Canada Day! YAY! And to celebrate, I thought I’d post about some of my favorite Canadian movies, we all know that Canadian television right now is amazing – Lost Girl, Bomb Girls, Continuum, Flashpoint and oh so many more, as Sue and I have constantly and consistently raved about. So here’s a few of…
