Hollywood is quietly using AI to help decide which movies to make

29th May 2019

The film world is full of intriguing what-ifs. Will Smith famously turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix. Nicolas Cage was cast as the lead in Tim Burton’s Superman Lives, but he only had time to try on the costume before the film was canned. Actors and directors are forever glancing off projects that never get made or that get made by someone else, and fans are left…

Everything You Need to Know About ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8

16th April 2019

The seventh season of Game of Thrones feels like it wrapped up a lifetime ago. It did. It’s unclear how we all made through more than one year without GoT, but it’s almost time for the eighth and final season. In March 2019, with just weeks to go before the premiere, HBO blessed fans with the first full trailer for season eight, complete with dragon moments, the Golden Company, Gendry…

Everything new coming to Netflix this week, and everything leaving (week of Feb. 17)

18th February 2019

Following a busy week full of potential (and legitimate) blockbusters, Netflix has a selection full of question marks this week, along with a couple of familiar properties. Once again, everything coming to the streaming service this week is an original film or series, but the only one that I recognized was Chef’s Table, which returns for Volume 6. Of the five original films launching this week, Paddleton was the one…

Jumping from the traditional $10 bucks a month, the regular Canadian consumer will have to pay $13 for the same service and an additional three if they want the upgraded version. The price hikes are still substantial to most people, but it’s still the cheapest on the market. The other competitor in Canada is Bell Aliant which charges $20 a month for their video streaming service. Other competitors are joining…


Every new show and movie on Hulu: February 2019

30th January 2019

February is nearly here and Hulu has got some fantastic shows and films coming. Since it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I must recommend you watch one of the greatest rom-coms ever written, Four Weddings and a Funeral. Or you can check out one of my other favorite romances, the Cher and Nicolas Cage masterpiece that is Moonstruck. If you’re not feeling the romantic vibe, and you’d prefer a good heist film, you may…

The 9 best Netflix shows you’ve never heard of

9th January 2019

The sheer volume of new and original content that hits Netflix every month is absolutely staggering. To be quite honest, it’s practically impossible to keep up with all of the new content that arrives on Netflix every month unless you’re watching TV 24/7. As a prime example, this month alone will see Netflix debut 38 new original TV series and movies. With Netflix literally spending billions on developing new content…

This year’s award show felt a little off pacing-wise, but there weren’t too many surprising wins or losses.

MoviePass forcing users to choose between two movies a day at odd hours

6th October 2018

After announcing a price increase and then immediately reversing it at the end of July, MoviePass spent yet another weekend making headlines for all the wrong reasons. According to a New York Post report, the service crashed once again on Friday, but before it went down, users discovered that they were only being offered two possible screenings: the poorly-reviewed Slender Man and Mission: Impossible – Fallout at inconvenient hours.
