Latest Movie Releases: Week of April 14
Posted by Showbiz Monkeys | Tuesday, April 8, 2014 @ 2:16pm
Every year, a host of comedians from across Canada (with a smattering of Brits and Americans) descend into the spring melt of Winnipeg for a week of TV galas, theatre shows, club dates, and live radio recordings. Celebrating its lucky 13th year, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival -- run by Winnipeg-based comic Al Rae and the Gas Station Arts Centre -- is a favourite for performers, and the local audience benefits. Despite Winnipeg's relatively small size, the comedy festival is the second biggest in the country after Montreal's legendary Just for Laughs Festival., so the city definitely knows how to laugh.

On this week's episode of Metatron, our hero gives Castiel one last chance to join his higher cause but that angel refuses to see the light.

I was first introduced to the comedic mind of Daryn Jones on his early 2000s Comedy Network show Buzz, which featured he and Mista Mo in various sketches and random bits and interviews on the streets of Toronto. With its ridiculousness and often crudeness, it was essentially the perfect show for an 18-year-old Canadian guy, but as an already massive comedy nerd, I was also able to see the cleverness and social commentary beneath the sex jokes and pranks. One could tell even then that Jones was on his way to a long career.

The snow hasn't melted away for most movie-goers (north of the broader that is), yet the summer movie scene is already upon us. Since Marvel gave Spidey/Sony the coveted opening May weekend spot audiences get a month's head start of the block-buster season as Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters today ...and its pretty damn awesome.
Like Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, this next Captain America film picks up a couple years after the events in the Avengers (aka the battle of New York). Captain America/Steve Rogers has been re-enlisted, just this time with S.H.I.E.L.D., and has been running covert missions alongside them and his fellow Avenger, Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff. Still adjusting to this new world Cap also struggles with the grey areas Nick Fury & S.H.I.E.L.D. operate within. When deadly treats from Rogers' pass begin to resurface he doesn't know which side he is on or who to trust.

"Yet mom's hardly in the story."
So how did you feel about the way How I Met Your Mother concluded? After nine long seasons, we finally got our answer. Was it worth the wait? Consider how the show went on for too long, and how it seemed like the latter seasons really dragged its foot on the reveal. Heck, it was a surprise the mother, Tracy, even made an appearance in the season 8 finale. How many of you were stunned at how irrelevant Tracy's role turned out to be in a series where its name revolved around meeting her?

Everything appears normal in Milton, Illinois. That is, until some of the residents become soulless killers.

"Pick it up for six more."
It was only a matter of time before Castor got fired. Without his medication, his mental health deteriorated further. Not only that, his insane ideas also came out during a manic state as he spoke during a meeting in front of Elliot and the rest of the team. Even though Castor is very capable of speaking in front of crowds and taking on difficult questions, his own abilities were ultimately eclipsed by his madness. After jumping on the table, Castor's belongings were packed up and shipped out. There was not even a man of the year award or a speech from Matt.

Amidst the legends and sightings throughout the world, the Winchesters are about to face a monster only the internet could create.

It's safe to say, this was an above average year for movies. I can tell because I had such a tough time narrowing down my list to only 10 picks. Great pictures like The Act of Killing, Frances Ha, Upstream Color and Her were all on this list but, as I saw more and more stuff, those ones sadly fell away to the Honorable Mentions, which I have included at the end of this article. I would recommend each of those films as highly as the ones that did make the list.

That stiff golden boy they call Oscar had his list so why can't I? That's right film fans I'm back for another Top Ten list to count down my favourite flicks from 2013. In keeping with last year's Top Ten format (and if you couldn't already tell by the title) this list will consist of the 10 films from last year that I, Andrew Burns, personally both consider to be of the best quality and/or enjoyed the most. With exception of a small handful of films from 2013 I pretty much have viewed most of the best of the best from last year. Without further ado my list of the Top Ten films of 2013.
