Lining up for Nick Cave tickets for one of the Toronto shows in 2017. I’ve been waiting for about 40 minutes now. Apparently gone are the days of “Tickets sold out in under a minute?”
“You can close this page without losing your place in line.”
Yeah, like I’m going to chance that.
If you see tags like these on a coat that you plan on wearing, take them off. Same for the gold and black stickers on ball caps or price tags or security dye tags.
I see these on the sleeves of people on the subway who appear to be otherwise able to dress themselves, and it’s all I can do to not “accidentally” snip them off.
Thanks Blackberry team! I was waiting this.
I saw The Battery last night as part of Zombie Appreciation Night at Toronto After Dark. This is dark and comedic, and one of the best zombie genre films I’ve seen in a long while. It focuses primarily on the relationship of these two men who don’t start out as friends, but teammates. They have nothing really in common other than a desire to survive.
Go to the film’s web page at The Battery and buy the DRM-free film for $5 (or more). I saw it last night, and decided I needed to own it.
There’s a solid soundtrack that is often tied to a prop set of headphones. It works really nicely, and the director stated during the Q&A following this screening that the idea to score the film through the headphones didn’t even occur to him until editing. I never would have guessed… it worked that well.
The soundtrack also features Toronto’s Rock Plaza Central (Yep Roc), and Chris Eaton from the band was in the theatre to play a bit of ‘Anthem for the Already Defeated,’ a song which worked really well in this genre film.
The story of an honest security guard and his exterminator side kick as they chase something… I’d say more, but wouldn’t want to spoil the film for anyone.
We Are What We Are Q&A with the film makers. From the festival’s synopsis;
USA – A critically acclaimed new horror thriller from award-winning filmmaker Jim Mickle (STAKELAND) about a cannabalistic family trying to keep their blood-thirsty habits a secret from their fellow townspeople.
Not at all a massacre of the chainsaw variety. Sorry on massacre for must of the film, a slow narrative build a really compelling story with sympathetic ‘bad’ people.
