On August 31, 1935, a new movie house dazzled audiences for the first time ever in the budding suburb of Westdale in Hamilton, Ontario.

REVIEW: “The Measure of a Man” Stéphane Brizé's newest film lets main character Thierry decide between roles

By: Hess Sahlollbey From our first introduction to the central character of “The Measure of a Man” it is evident that things are not going well and don’t look to be getting better any time soon. It’s easy to compare main character Thierry, a middle-aged man, long out of work and short on prospects to another contemporary character, Walter White. Both characters embodied the 21st- century labourer whose lives...

Juste La Fin Du Monde (It’s Only the End of the World) review The Art Gallery of Hamilton screens Xavier Dolan's newest film during their annual film festival

If Xavier Dolan’s past films immersed you in an atmosphere of tense cacophony, It’s Only The End of The World drowns you in it.

In fact, it most recently graced the silver screen at the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s annual Film Fest, bringing the French-Canadian director’s “most proudest work” back a little closer...

[REVIEW] Batman v Superman

By: Hess Sahlollbey If my tickets were refundable, I would’ve left the theater after five minutes and asked for my money back. What should have been a simple grudge match between two orphans before they team up to face a greater evil is encumbered by a lengthy and superfluous political story and abstract metaphors.
