I must advise EVERY MFCers to stay the fuck away from the red-band trailer for "Better Watch Out" a.k.a. "Safe Neighborhood" that came out yesterday. DO NOT WATCH IT EVER, at least not until having seen the complete film. It'll completely ruin the experience. I saw the film earlier this summer at the Fantasia Festival so I can tell you from experience. STAY AWAY!

I have also heard from a critic who saw it at TIFF that the red-band trailer for Shape of Water should be skipped as well.

So, I finally caught up with "Spider-Man: Homecoming" this afternoon. It was entertaining. I liked that it played with a different origin story than what we know from the other films. Tom Holland did a great job in the role as did everyone else. I had fun with this one!

So, I saw two colorful movies this afternoon on $7 Tuesdays, at two different theaters downtown. I started with "Despicable Me 3". It was fun, not better not worse than the two films before. I laughed a few times and the animation is still good. Then, I saw "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets". It looked pretty damn amazing but other than that, I couldn't care less. It was a looooong film that barely made me smile or excite me. I just sat there, listening to Suzy Soundtrack and feeling the hits of Sally Seatkicker in the row behind me. I hated the 3D (couldn't do without it, these were the only screenings left) and I spent most of the film without the glasses because it made my eyes bleed and my head hurt. I least I didn't pay the extra $3 for this scam (wisely used a coupon). So yeah, that was my day at the movies.

That's pretty much what I got out of VALERIAN from watching the previews

I saw "War for the Planet of the Apes" this afternoon. It was a great dramatic story more than an action film. There are some great action moments but this is not entirely this kind of film. This second sequel features outstanding motion capture and CG rendition of the apes once again! Obviously, high marks go to the actors behind the apes but this film is amazing to watch. Had a great time!

A return to Rise and Dawn is in order tonight before I see "War for the Planet of the Apes" on Monday afternoon.

After seeing 23 films in 21 days at the Fantasia Festival, it was time to return to regular theater outings. No time to rest, I have about 8 films that I want to see that are still in theater. It started this afternoon with "Baby Driver". I really enjoyed it! It was very entertaining! Loved the sound design and editing to go along with the songs. Maybe I expected the film to be funnier (hate that the joke with the masks was wasted in the trailers) but it didn't change my enjoyment. The cast was cool and the driving/getaway sequences were great. Had a great time with this one!

Arrow Video is a new sponsor at this year's Fantasia Festival in Montreal. For the occasion, during the past two weekends, the American branch had a stall set up in the hall of the main theater. They had super awesome prices. And I went a little bit crazy! Spent $300 CAD for all of this! That means $220 CAD worth of savings based on actual prices on Amazon.ca. Based on USD prices, I still would have saved $150 CAD after conversion. Note that apart from "Re-Animator" and "Hellraiser" and "Hellbound: Hellraiser II", the other films are all blind buys. Still, for that price...

It should be fun!

@erico I had a great festival, thanks! Like every year, with 20+ films, a got a few lows but the majority were at least good.

"A Day" was a fantastic drama/thriller. It brought a little new twist to the groundhog day type of film. Great stuff from a first time director.

"Jailbreak" was pretty entertaining. The story was pretty paper-thin but the action was awesome and very well shot. The actors/stuntmen who were at the screening didn't hide that they clearly took a page from "The Raid" films when it comes to action.

"Dead Shack" was a little bit of a let down but still good. It had some good comedic elements but the zombie stuff was lacking. The creating team were there (all Montrealers by the way) and they mentioned the low budget they had so it explained a few things.

Any word of distribution/release info for A Day & Jailbreak?

Pat Hatfreet
Pat Hatfreet at 09:17 PM Aug 07

The Fantasia host teased that he knew a big American company bought distribution rights to "Jailbreak" but didn't dare announce it because he wasn't sure if they announced it. I still haven't found any news about that company.

As for "A Day", it was just the North American premiere so undoubtedly somebody will acquire it in the near future.

I just rewatched "Harry and the Hendersons" for the first time in a very long time. The film celebrated its 30th anniversary early last June. Just to tell you how long it had been, the last time I saw it was in the 90's on French local TV. At the time, I had no idea what special makeup effects were, what animatronics were, who Rick Baker was and that he won an Academy Award for Best Makeup for his work on Harry. So, it was really cool to rediscover the film. The rest of the film is really fun too!

The time is finally here! I've got my magazine for the 2017 Fantasia Festival. I'm looking at all the movies right now, trying to build my schedule before the tickets go on sale Saturday at 1pm.

Yesterday, I had a first time watch of the 1987 science-fiction comedy "Innerspace", directed by Joe Dante and starring Dennis Quaid, Meg Ryan and Martin Short. This is a movie I didn't even know existed until a few years ago. It was released thirty years ago on June 3rd. The film won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects in 1988. It's completely silly but I had fun with this movie. Glad I finally watched it!

Innerspace does big things with the Fantastic Voyage premise.

Monday morning movie: For the kick of it, I just had a first time watch of the 1987 comedy "Adventures In Babysitting", the first movie directed by Chris Columbus. It was released thirty years ago today. I thought it was amusing.

The Apprehension Engine, the "instrument" that helped composer Mark Korven create the score for "The Witch". Really cool!

Yesterday evening, I was in Ottawa, Canada for the filming of the 25th Governor General's Performing Arts Awards. During the show, I had the chance of sharing the same stage than Michael J. Fox, Eugene Levy and Colm Feore! At one moment, I even was at a little more than an arm's length of Mr. Fox. Canadian MFCers can watch a special shortened presentation of the ceremony tonight at 9pm on CBC. In the show, you'll see a very cool movie-related musical performance involving Mr. Fox and a special guest! Can't believe I helped capture that moment!

I finally saw "It Comes At Night" this afternoon. The teaser looked promising and I remember many of us here were looking forward to it. I've been pretty busy for the last month and I haven't had a lot of time to browse all the activity here so I don't know what you guys thought of it. On my end, I guess I thought it was a good enough slow-paced thriller. Like the teaser, the film pretty much delivered on an atmospheric standpoint but I don't think the rest of the film was exactly what I anticipated it to be. It was well shot, had some good acting and a few interesting scenes but I wasn't completely satisfied in the end.

It Comes at Night is, aptly enough, has only late-night showings around here, so I am having a hard time catching the movie. Thus, a person is glad to read that the movie a good time but not essential viewing.
