Cancer, the toxic monster that not only attacks the body, but every relationship a person has. In this film it tests the strength of the lifelong friendship between Milly (Toni Collette) and Jess (Drew Barrymore), and these two have already been to hell and back with each other. Miss You Already, which premiered at TIFF and is set in London, shows the power of their bond after Milly learns she'll need a double mastectomy because her cancer is so invasive. Full Story

Zack Snyder, the director of Man Of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs Superman, talked some sh-t recently about his superheroes and the Marvel superheroes. Basically he’s saying that the Marvel guys, Iron Man, Captain America etc will come and go. But that Batman and Superman are forever: But I feel like Batman and Superman are transcendent of superhero movies in a way, because they’re Batman and Superman. Full Story

What a f*cking weird movie. I love it, I can’t guarantee you will all love it, too, but if you’re open to trying a different flavor, The Lobster is definitely worth a shot.

I heard some industry folks at TIFF sh*t-talking Netflix for allegedly overpaying for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix’s first original feature film. They were of the opinion that Netflix will keep overpaying for movies and go bust, but just a few years ago TV executives were saying the same thing, and now look where we are. Full Story
