With the imminent release of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, as well as the fact that this website is still too new and developing for me to get a fancy critics screening pass, I decided to instead begin this week with a review of the trilogy thus far. So abandon all hope of part three talk, all ye who enter here, and fear not, for thar be the last o’ me pirate-speak for the rest of this piece.
Just in time to be extremely early for its DVD release(that’s our story, and we’re sticking to it), three of our movie critics review the double feature Grindhouse with Death Proof and Planet Terror, spawned by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, and question if Thanksgiving and Don’t will ever make it to the big-screen.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Canadian music. Nelly Furtado is reinventing an entire nation’s musical history.
