Movies are AMAZING. Agree/Disagree

Well? What do you think? No. Movies are for babies.  Emily Milling Emily is a Toronto based film and audio producer. She watches a lot of movies, it’s a byproduct of living with Justin Decloux, but she loves it. Emily tries to look at films through a feminist lens, and loves a good splatter comedy. http://www.emilymilling.com

Re-watching Miami Connection and then watching it again.

Re-watching Miami Connection and then watching it again.

I never ever get tired of watching Miami Connection and I show it to almost everyone I know, whenever the opportunity arises. Why? Because the quotability factor is high, the bizarre multi-plot narrative keeps me on my toes, and I see something completely new every time I see it. Yes, it’s one of those movies. Ok so here’s a little backstory first. In 1987-ish, a man named Grandmaster Y. K. Kim wanted to make a movie to promote all the good that Taekwondo can do for people. It was meant to have…

Dead of Winter (1987)

Dead of Winter (1987)

Canadian winters are so magical and wonderful. Ask any Canadian, we’ll tell you, we love the snow and we love traipsing around snowy hills up in the bush with no contact to the outside world. It’s great. Especially when creepy blackmail is afoot. Well I mean, we need to have SOMETHING to keep us busy in the winter. Murder mysteries are perfect for that. Dead of Winter definitely doesn’t star Canadians, but it is a creepy winter murder mystery, and it was shot in Ontario. Therefore I’m instantly interested, because…

Under the Shadow – Review

Under the Shadow – Review

The more I write about movies, the more it will become obvious just how much I love creepy ghosty horror movies, even though I can’t actually handle them when I have to go to bed and turn off the lights. I am terrified of see-through ghost people staring at me from the corner of my room or popping up behind me like a real-life jump scare! And yet I continue to subject myself to scary movies as often as possible because I just fucking love them. Under the Shadow, a…

Three Oscar Contenders – One glorious afternoon

Three Oscar Contenders – One glorious afternoon

Until I met Justin Decloux I only ever really watched one movie in a day. And then I wanted to impress him so much that I started watching six movies a day. Finally I realized that he liked me enough that I could ease back to maybe three or four a day. And that brings us to our New Year’s Day tradition of binge watching obvious Oscar contenders for best picture. This year we watched three. We started the day with Manchester by the Sea. Admittedly I did absolutely no…
