New Releases!


Ash vs The Evil Dead – Fun and gory and awesome TV series starring Bruce Campbell (Boy Howdy!) as Ash who, for some reason, is still fighting those evil dead creatures. Good times.


Camille Claudel 1915 – Juliette Binoche is Camille Claudel who’s confined to an asylum in the winter of 1915. Much French drama, I presume, ensues.


The Huntsman: Winter’s War – Don’t really know (or care to be honest) what this one is about. Something to do with a handsome fella and beautiful woman who try to keep their love affair secret from an evil witch or something. You decide!


Maggie’s Plan – Nice romantic comedy/drama that finds Greta Gerwig having an affair with Ethan Hawke, destroying his marriage (go figure) in the process. She then gets bored with him and devises a plan – Maggie’s Plan! – to give him back to his ex-wife. Hijinks and funny business, I presume, ensue.


The Nice Guys – Shane Black’s (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) latest flick finds Canada’s favourite baby goose, Ryan Gosling, along with Russell Crowe as a couple of mismatched private eyes who are on the case of the apparent suicide of a porn actress in 1970’s LA. I’m sold!


Ratchet and Clank – Some cute animals and robots join forces to save the world or galaxy or something in this nice animated kid’s fare.


The Walking Dead Season 6 – More zombies, mores dining, more over-acting, more frustrating characters who just won’t get eaten! Dinner is served!


Weiner – Excellent doc about Anthony Weiner, the congressman with the unfortunate last name, who liked to send dick-pics to all of those people who really didn’t want to see such a thing. They say it’s the Spinal Tap of political docs. Sign me up (just not for the pictures).

Coming Soon!
