… and even though TIFF has taken over the world there are still movies opening. Crazy, right? Anyway, here they are.
For the Love of Spock: Adam Nimoy’s memorial to his father — and the character he created — arrives just in time for Star Trek‘s 50th birthday. It’s okay, but someone else should have had final cut.
Sully: At just 96 minutes, I’m pretty sure this the shortest film Clint Eastwood has ever directed. But I suppose there just isn’t that much story to tell about the guy who landed that plane after hitting those geese. Rad thought it was okay.
When the Bough Breaks: This time last year, Jon Cassar was at TIFF with his disappointing Western Forsaken. Now he’s not at TIFF, but his new movie — about a couple who hire the wrong surrogate — is opening wide! Sony didn’t screen it. Whatevs.
The Wild Life: It’s an animated take on Robinson Crusoe, from the point of view of the island’s animals! It’s from Belgium I think! Anyway, Rad was unmoved.
That’s it! And now I go back to work.
