Vancouver Just For Laughs Film Festival: ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Lost Me

Sorry For Your Loss

Movies that don’t evoke a strong reaction are the hardest for me to write about, but they are not the ones I like to write about least. The ones I like to write about the least are the ones I don’t like at all. It sucks to watch something that many people have put a ton of work into and to come away knowing that you’re going to have to tell people you can’t recommend seeing that work.

Star Trek INto Darkness

IS IT 17TH MAY YET?

All joking aside, this is looking good although perhaps a little predictable. Clearly looks like the bad guy gets the better of Kirk due to Kirks arrogance which ends disastrous consequences and then has to fight back from a place of defeat with perhaps these help of his friends and colleagues.

None of this is a bad thing necessarily, that could be an amazing movie. It is well worn material though so we’ll have to see.

Then again, they might be leading me to think that so that they can hit me with something totally different. Either way, seriously, is it 17th May yet????
