(jp) wrote: Nostalgia. Reliving memories of one of my fav nights of summer 09, set to a score by one of my fav bands, preserved in all its glory in celluloid. Also fun pointing out hipster Toronto landmarks (Drake, Trinity-Bellwoods Park, etc). Could have benefited from less "out-of-focus-super-close-up" shots though.Bonus points for the Guelph shoutout in the movie!

(gb) wrote: I liked the book better, because they change some really important things. The ending for example!
(kr) wrote: I am a little suprised that the synopsis describes this as a comedy. I didn't see it that way. It's a film about a bullied girl with a lot of harsh realities in it but I think you've got to be a bit weird to laugh at that.

(ag) wrote: 533 kids, that is a lot for anyone, but Vince Vaughn just kind of accepts it like he found an extra 20 in his wallet. As for the kids, they aren't mad that he lied to them for 20 years, they just want there daddy back. Those are the two things wrong with this movie, and yet, it is still quite enjoyable, and Vaughn himself is very good. It's advertised as a comedy but if you really pay attention to the trailer you knew it was going to be more of a drama, and it is quite dramatic with a few funny lines thrown in mostly spoken by Chris Pratt. Vince Vaughn shows his ability as an actor and that he doesn't always have to be the comedic genius he once was and that he can show his range in dramatic acting. He just plays a man with no life other than the fact he is a meat truck driver, he decides that he wants to have a life and that he wants to be the guardian angel for his kids and gives the movie a heart at the end, whether or not the reactions of everyone involved works, it is still worth watching. MILD RECOMMENDATION for Vince Vaughn.

(ru) wrote: This is a delightful little horror flick from way back. I wanted to see it for two reasons: One, Martin Scorsese cited it as one of many films that inspired the general tone and look of Shutter Island. Two, Jacques Tourneur, director of film noir masterpiece Out of the Past, was a director I wanted to explore more. I was not disappointed. The black-and-white cinematography itself is worth the watch. It's absolutely glorious.
