The Man Who Fell to Earth.

One of the worst things about getting older (I have a laundry list of things I hate about getting older) is people are always dying. Friends, co-workers, neighbours, neighbour’s dogs and people you don’t know on a personal basis but that you grew up with. Read more…

We will be closing early this coming Sunday (17th) for a well-deserved staff party. Get in before 9pm to get what you need!

Beeba Boys – Locally shot gangster epic, directed by Deepa Mehta, tells the gangster tale of a guy who wants to take on the local, and I do mean local as it’s also set in Vancouver, crime kingpin and get all of his gangster related riches.

Irrational Man – Last year’s Woody Allen film find a neurotic (no!) and tormented philosophy professor finding the will to live after he commits some sort of existential act. I’m not even sure what that means. Anyways, I think it’s always a good thing to have a new Woody Allen film. Life is short. Not as short as Woody Allen, but still short.

Life – Sparkly vampire (Robert Pattinson) who works as a photographer for Life magazine is assigned to take some shots of an up-and-coming actor who goes by the name of James Dean. Sounds intriguing (no actual vampires appear in this film). Directed by Anton Corbijn (Control).

The Martian – MATT DAMON is stranded on Mars and has to eat his own poop. Or something like that. For some reason this won best comedy at this years Golden Globes. Good stuff.

MV5BMTg3OTQ2NzAzN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDUyNjY3NTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Mr. Robot S1 – Excellent, weird TV series (also a Glorbin Glob winner) about a junkie computer nerd/genius who stumbles on a secret anarchist society bent on taking down the man! Pretty fun series that you should be watching.

Sherlock: The Abominable Bride – The famed detectives look to solve the case of The Abominable Bride! Whatever that is. Yeti Bride? Why would anyone marry someone who is abominable? Or a Yeti?

MV5BMjQ2NTM5NzU3MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDAwMTQyNTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Sinister 2 – More sinister doings are afoot when a young family with twins (always a bad sign) move into a house that’s been marked by death. That’s got to wreak havoc with the property values.
