CoN at the Movies

Written by Jeff Wright

NOTE: The following article, is being written at gunpoint. Leo's angry at me, cuz I was supposed to write this while he was on vacation, but didn't. Because I have a gun up my nose, my writing shall be brief.

Movies to Watch:

GHOST WORLD (A great little film. Go see it before it's out of theatres. It's the best thing I've seen this summer aside from MOULIN ROUGE, which is in its own league of awesome-ness.)

JOHN CARPENTER'S GHOSTS OF MARS (It's a dumb, fun, popcorn movie.
Enjoy the limb severings, and shut your mouth.)

A BETTER PLACE (It's now available as a great and feature loaded DVD. It's a small independent film about teen violence, that's worth seeking out. This is what you can do with $40,000 folks.)

LOVE ON A DIET (The new Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng comedy, in which they play fatties. It's dumb, but really funny. Plus, Sammi gets skinny and hot by the end, so who's to complain?)

KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTERSPACE (Just released on special edition DVD.

BATMAN: THE MOVIE (New DVD available as well. When I get some money, I shall buy it, and be a much happier person.)

SHOGUN ASSASSIN (I think it's only available on an out of print VHS tape, but search it out. Super cool re-edit of the first two LONE WOLF AND CUB movies, dubbed into English, with a funky, funky score.)

BROTHER (The latest Takeshi Kitano film. It's really not that great, but if you see a VCD copy of it for cheap somewhere, it's a decent time waster.)

Movies Not to Watch:

JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK (I'm a big Kevin Smith fan, but this
was just a retarded piece of stoned nerd ass.)

RUSH HOUR 2 (Zhang Zi-Yi is hot as hell, but is that really a reason
to go see a movie? It's boring.)

PLANET OF THE APES (But you knew that already, didn't you? We all
learn the hard way.)

JURASSIC PARK 3 (It was free. Shut up!)

Canadian Music to Buy:

MASS ROMANTIC by The New Pornographers



That's it for now.

Tune in next time for Toronto Film Fest coolness, including a review of ICHI THE KILLER, the new film from Japanese director Takashi Miike. WOOHOO!!!
