Image

This film brings little new to the table with its zombie mythology and certain laughs feel overly familiar given the plethora of zombie comedies out there. The project is assembled with an incredible amount of energy and creativity though. Most notable is a dream/nightmare in the style of a 1950s sitcom, but then there is also a funny George Buza as an exotic meat salesman, the film also offers some zany bridezilla and satire and swipes at HR.

Image

Interrogated by a government agent, a physics researcher contemplates what might have happened to his mentor who strangely vanished in this movie about parallel universes and inter-dimensional travel. The film's big sell-point is that it was written and directed by an actual experimental physicist, yet the film shies over why the government agency is so interested in parallel universes while introducing romantic bits that distract from the science.

This is a fairly novel take on the classic romcom, involving a hitman addressing some dark issues as well as whether it is better to be inconspicuous or noticeable in life. The balance between black comedy and romance does not always click though, and while the couple's neurotic arguments over wanting to kill each other are fun, it is not until rather late that she gets wise. For the most part though, this is reasonably offbeat and quirky.

Are you sure you're enjoying this challenge? :P
Perhaps I’ve been a bit harsh with some of the ratings; but there was some really bad stuff in between though. :D

51. Dead of Night (1974) - 4/10
52. Wedding in White (1972) - 6/10
53. Les ordres (1974) - 7/10
54. Kissed (1996) - 7/10

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Driving across Toronto in pursuit of his wife who has run off with a lover, a would-be stalker meets another woman being stalked in this odd comedy. The film starts off quite quirky, yet the stalker soon becomes a supporting character as attention diverts to the boyfriend of the other stalked woman. Page Fletcher is well cast and his chemistry with a young Elias Koteas as a mechanic is great, but the film is never very smooth as it switches protagonists.

Image

This irreverent comedy is initially just as quirky as one would expect as Jesus uses his kung fu moves on vampires and heals the sick and frail during a song-and-dance number in the streets of Ottawa. After a solid start though, the film quickly runs out imagination, soon turning into a series of kung fu battles and vamp babble. Some of the battles are funny (e.g. the park fight above). The characters are poor though and this feels repetitive by the end.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

117. Best Evidence: Top 10 UFO Sightings (2007) Nova Scotia / English

Image

While nothing is very convincing here due to a lack of physical evidence, all of the anecdotal evidence from various sources makes a case for something being out there, if maybe not extraterrestrial in origin. The film also brings up an intriguing point that most sightings are near military bases; perhaps an alien warning against weapons? Great retro 80s style computer graphics and down-to-earth interviews whatever the case, though the narration sucks.

28. Le révolutionnaire [The Revolutionary] (1965) QC-fr - First to check - 7.4
29. In Love and Anger: Milton Acorn - Poet (1984) PE-en - First to check and under 5 votes on imdb - 7.2
30. Séraphin (1950) - 7ish

The Revolutionary was really absurd. It was slow, then boring, then amazing, then baffling, then weird, then hilarious, then huh? Lots of satire and farce in it, with an unusual love story. It bears no resemblance to the other Lefebvre film I've seen (The Last Betrothal), but I do want to see more of his films. Recommended for all (it's short too), and it may be a treat for the avant garde crowd.

I had Anne of Green Gables 2 lined up for PEI, but then I thought I'd check the NFB for anything else, and stumbled upon In Love and Anger. A 50-minute documentary about an odd poet meant that instead of 1 bonus point for 4 hours I got 3 bonus points for 1 hour. The doc is okay, but Milton Acorn is quite the character. Almost half of the film is imagery with him reciting his own poems. He was in his sixties at the time, and his mother was still alive, so it was nice they interviewed her too. She said her final hope was to live long enough to see him win the Nobel Prize... sadly, he died two years later (no clue if she passed before him or not). A curious film for those who enjoy poetry and non-conventional filmmaking.

Séraphin is the sequel to A Man and His Sin. I've found out that the first film didn't actually follow the book faithfully, and changed much of the plot and the ending. I don't know if anything was borrowed for this sequel, but I think not. It really seems like a film trying to capitalize on the success of its predecessor. Some strange choices, such as the lead character adopting a new catchphrase (bouleau noir!/black birch!) but overall it's serviceable, and it's nice to see the main antagonist finally get his comeuppance after over three hours of his miserable (and somewhat one-note) behaviour. Thanks to the recent restoration, the quality of the print is quite excellent (though at times the image shimmered like a heat wave), and it struck me that the production quality of this film was quite on par to Hollywood and European films of that era, and these two films may mark the beginning of Canada becoming a film nation in it's own right (though I think it still struggled in the '50s and didn't start to rise to some prominence until the '60s). Oh, and there's an anachronistic remark about the Klondike, made 5 years before gold was discovered there!

Best thought of as Canada's answer to The Toxic Avenger, there are many quirky moments in the mix here as the reporter melts as a police breathalyzer before maniacally driving off and as he burns others with his radioactive skin. His murder/revenge acts though sometimes feel generic if grisly; a death by lawnmowing equipment, for instance, is certainly zany but never really capitalises on the radioactive nature of the protagonist. Entertaining though.

Horror special effects are the subject of this documentary which is pretty captivating with much cleverness in how reversed footage is used and in the various gore and makeup effects. The painstaking detail is put into shots that might only amount to "a few short seconds" is curious too. Less successful are the attempts to be funny with a cannibalistic crew member called Fang. Now, if only the film with-in with Scanners style exploding heads was real!

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Penultimate OP update is imminent.

OP updated up until ororama's post.
I believe that I should have one more point in the bonus challenge for regions. Marion Bridge was filmed in Nova Scotia.

I appreciate your effort with the bonus challenge. I didn't do the work myself to add the provinces, I think mainly because I expected my feature film viewing to be overwhelmingly from Ontario and Quebec, as it has been. I''ll add provinces for the last few days (although I expect what I watch to be to be overwhelmingly from Ontario and Quebec).

Image

Whereas Slumber Party Massacre is often cited as pro-feminist, this slasher also toys with expectations by featuring plus-sized actors and actresses throughout. On one hand, it is hard not to like the attempt to be more realistic by a having a cast of all shapes and sizes, but the narrative shaky. There a couple of funny moments ("what's a killa-mon?"), but an eye-gouging aside, the majority of kills take place off-screen and there is too much slow-mo.

Although not an official part of the Michael Myers canon, this indie thriller is actually more tolerable than the dire fifth and sixth official entries. While the limited budget often shines through, the film has a handful of effective suspense and thrill moments since the filmmakers have to rely on atmosphere rather than blood and gore. There are some darkly comic moments too, though the plot is less solid than its collection of shocks and scares.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

7. The Dirties (2013) Ontario/English
A found footage movie that is also a bullying movie and a cinemania movie. It's an odd and arresting combination, as we see two high schoolers who are obsessed with movies become amateur filmmakers themselves. One of them gradually slips into a world where he no longer distinguishes between the real world and the screen world. Recommended. In some ways it reminded me of myself and my friends in high school/college because we were constantly talking about movies and trading lines from our favorites.

8. Incident at Restigouche (1984) Quebec/English
An early effort from Alanis Obomsawin, this documentary depicts an attempt by the Quebec government to restrict native fishing rights, culminating in two violent raids on Mikmaq peoples. It turns out police brutality isn't just an American thing! There are a lot of revealing interviews with people who suffered from the violence, but the highlight of the movie is a conversation Obomsawin has with Lucien Lessard, the provincial Minister of Fisheries who ordered the raids. Obomsawin tears him to shreds.

:mellow: Damn, if you liked this, wait until you see Operation Avalanche, their follow-up film and best movie to date. It's a fun look at them stumbling upon Stanley Kubrick as he is faking the moon-landing. I can't recommend the film highly enough, and it's a bit sad that nobody has decided to watch it so far:

This is a little hard to get into at first with a lot scenes of the band just talking about (and playing) their music. Things get very interesting towards the end though, and some of the special effects on a budget during the final stretch are remarkably unsettling. With very little in the way of horror until this point though, the film never quite reaches the heights of something such as Deathgasm. Daphnee Hanrahan is decent in the lead role though.

Spending twenty minutes on the antagonist methodically planning his evening before the action begins, this initially starts off as a very different sort of home invasion thriller. As the film progresses though, the uniqueness wears off. The film is also capped off with a ridiculous twist that makes less and less sense the more one thinks about it. That said, the vast majority of the film comes with no explanation at all, which is intriguing, but also a bit dull.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

My personal penultimate update... we'll see how many films I can squeeze in on the last day. I've made it this far without delving into shorts, so I think I'll steer free of them for the duration of this challenge.

31. Gui tu lie che [Last Train Home] (2009) QC-zh - 7.5ish
32. The Changeling (1980) BC-en - 7.5ish
33. The Northern Lights (1992) NT-en - First to check - 7ish
34. It's All Gone Pete Tong (2004) BC-en - 7ish
35. La grande séduction [Seducing Dr. Lewis] (2003) QC-fr - 8ish

Last Train Home is a fascinating film not so much for it's subject matter, but for the way in which it was shot and the fact that it got made at all. Every major crowd scene had me wondering how they got permission to film, or how they even filmed it. Utter chaos that seemed too risky to be filmed as a documentary, but too logistically difficult to film as a piece of fiction. It's a Canadian film made by a Chinese-born Canadian-based director, and he and most of the primary film crew were Chinese/Chinese-Canadian based on the credits (and I think it would have been difficult for non-Chinese folks to be filming those scenes), the film is clearly built for and catering to a western audience that it's fully familiar with the annual CNY migrations. It's labelled as both documentary and drama on imdb, which could mean some or all parts of the film were staged, but that seems unlikely to me. Even the moments with the family had a surreal quality to them, especially the fight with the daughter: how could this be real, but also why would this be staged? Sadly, it looks like the director hasn't done much since this film was released.

I associate the word Changeling with a fantasy element (i.e. a creature that can change form), so I always thought this was a creature-feature kind of horror film (and thus one of the reasons I avoided it for so long). I completely forgot that "changeling" is also a term used to described abducted/lost children who are returned to their parents but may not be who they say they are (despite the existence of the Jolie film of the same name, I still didn't make the connection). Had I realized this sooner, I might have ventured to see this one sooner (as it is, I only prioritized this one because it is on both the TIFF list and the Genie Winners list that I'm working on). Overall, it's actually quite a good and atmospheric haunted house film, with the namesake changeling only coming into play about halfway through the film. It film focuses more on tension and mood than jump-scares, which I appreciate, and perhaps while never truly horrifying it does have some great scenes of terror and some brilliant visuals (plus, referencing sol's post about the horror doc he saw and how some effects are filmed backwards, there's one in this film involving a necklace which I thought was cool). My only gripe is that the ending is rather abrupt and unsatisfactory, and kind of put a damper on the whole film for me. Still, it was worth the watch.

The Northern Lights was made by Yellowknife Films in conjunction with the NFB, so it's a rare film made from (almost) above the Arctic Circle. It was interesting in that it wasn't just about the northern lights, but also the history of the science and research of them and the cultural beliefs of various peoples around the arctic, including Inuit, First Nations, Saami, and Chukchi people. Some cute animations of various legends, interviews with elders, and basic scientific explanation of the cause of this natural phenomenon keep this film moving a long at a brisk pace so that it never outstays it's welcome. I just wish that the footage of the aurora was crisper, but I suppose an Indie film from the early 90s just didn't have access to the needed technology to render them in HD.

Pete Tong is a comedy mockumentary, which I only realized when I started the film. I thought it was a straight comedy-biopic before. There's a lot in common with Dowse's earlier music mockumentary Fubar, and some of it wasn't really my kind of humour, but overall the film worked for me thanks to the lead's good performance and some stellar stone-faced black comedy moments from the various people being "interviewed" about the DJ. It's still a British film to me, though, even with a Canadian director, significant Canadian funding, and a number of Genie nominations :D

I'd been looking forward to the grande seduction for a long time (the original French Canadian version, not the English Canadian or French France remakes), and it didn't disappoint. Some great comedy moments, reminding me a bit of some working-class British humour for some reason, and the whole cast of characters more or less worked well together. I may end up watching the other versions, but I still heartily recommend this one.

With an air of Shivers to it, this film is more intriguing in its pre-parasite mutation stretch, but the project is so stylishly filmed that it works even when it devolves into a creature feature chase thriller. The web-covered catacombs beneath the hospital are perfectly creepy, frequently shot in eerie blue light (see above). The creature looks great too. The film's attempts at comic relief unfortunately work far less well, a funny "it's coming!" line aside.

This follows what seems to be the cardinal rule of the Friday the 13th series: the heavier an episode relies on Micki and Jack to drive the narrative, the weaker it is. The basic concept was never too interesting in the first place though (a cursed coin allows the dead to be resurrected) but given how dynamic a film director William Fruet managed to create from a killer insect mistaken for a monkey in my previous viewing, I wanted to give this a go.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
