10 Best Movies at Toronto International Film Festival 2021

The crowds were gone — that was the first thing you noticed at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. Normally, over the course of the 10 days that this annual gathering of film lovers and lookie-loos runs, you’ll find throngs of people outside the Princess of Wales Theatre or the Roy Thomson Hall, hoping to catch a glimpse of whatever movie star is working the red carpet.

Cinematic Releases: Cry Macho (2021) - Reviewed

A mainstream master who has honed his craft to such a precise degree from top to bottom you know the kind of film you’re settling into, Eastwood has achieved such creative autonomy he’s been able to crank out picture after picture almost annually. At the ripe old age of 91, COVID-19 or not, the screen icon in his forty-second feature film as a director has generated both a long-gestating big screen adaptation of The Rainmaker novelist N.

Why Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Ruined The Franchise

In 2005, Robert Rodriguez translated one of the few R-rated comic book films to the big screen, Sin City. Starring Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, and Jessica Alba, the Frank Miller graphic novel comes to life with a collection of neo-noir stories that follows a mysterious salesman, a musclebound vigilante, a grizzled cop, and an ex-prostitute. The film was met with critical praise and managed to make a solid return at the box office, garnering nearly $160 million worldwide. Then, it would take over ten years for a sequel to arrive. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For saw the return of several prime characters from the first film while Eva Green’s Ava Lord and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Johnny are just some of the notable additions to the cast.
