The Supporting Act Podcast #023 with Mark Forward

Posted by Matt Moskal | Wednesday, May 7, 2014 @ 8:39am

There are few Canadian comedians operating on the same level as Mark Forward. He is an absurd storyteller and an unusual talent. His debut stand-up comedy album, Things I Thought Of, was released earlier this year. Forward is now self-producing comedy shows to claim ownership over his future as a performer.

Mark and I spoke over the phone from the UMFM studio to a pub in Toronto, ON. While Forward sipped on a pint of Guinness, we talked about the frivolous awards, morning radio shows and superfluous language.

TIFF 2014 Interview: Albert Shin

Posted by Elizabeth Hughes Belzil | Monday, September 15, 2014 @ 9:05am

In a small patio nestled in a high-rise apartment building in downtown Toronto, I sit across from Albert Shin. Despite the periodic sounds of honking from below and the roar of planes from above, the spot is peaceful, illuminated by the mid-morning sun. The young Canadian writer-director is friendly and informal, with a boyish face and irrepressible grin. One would hardly guess that he helmed the spectacular In Her Place which played as part of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival's Discovery program. The level of mastery displayed in the film appears more the work of a veteran filmmaker than a second feature shot on a micro-budget.

Five Reasons Why Judas Priest Should Retire

Posted by S.P. Young | Friday, August 8, 2014 @ 5:00pm

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Posted by Randy Hazzard | Wednesday, August 6, 2014 @ 9:13pm

We live in a time where Disney has a monopoly on my childhood. They are cross-generational and influential into all things I enjoyed in media growing up. I was raised on the classic animated films, then introduced to new ones like Aladdin and The Lion King. Eventually, they jumped into the future by using Pixar to make them even more relevant than they were. As time went on, they began to scour the back catalog of franchises by purchasing Lucasfilm, Marvel, and The Muppets. Now, the product they produce across all their brands is somehow superior to most other things.

Posted by Andrew Burns | Tuesday, August 5, 2014 @ 4:17pm

It has the Marvel logo all over the promos but these aren't characters or superheroes you've probably ever heard of right? Marvel has had a good thing going here, why take a chance with some space movie? Ten films, billions of dollars, and one hell of an opening weekend later trust me these Marvel guys know what they are doing.

Album Review: Kurt Metzger - White Precious

Posted by Tony Hinds | Monday, July 28, 2014 @ 6:15pm

Kurt Metzger's (@kurtmetzger on Twitter) hilarious new stand-up special, White Precious is a refreshingly dark and misanthropic way to spend an hour. Fans already familiar with his popular podcast, Race Wars will not be surprised by the candidly abrasive tone. Metzger gets away with this material because it is also intelligent and thoughtfully conveyed. Undoubtedly, Kurt Metzger is one of the most underrated names in comedy.

A Walkthrough of New Image College and New Image Entertainment

Posted by Mark McLeod | Monday, July 21, 2014 @ 1:47am

The first thing you notice when you step off the elevator in Vancouver's Standard Building -- home of New Image College of Fine Arts -- is that this isn't quite the educational learning facility you're expecting. Backed by a lush, almost new age-feeling interior -- which serves as the sign in desk for both the in-house spa and the acting/esthetics school -- I suddenly wasn't sure what to expect. After all, when you're expecting a rather cold and business-like lobby and you get something out of the movies, you tend to be a bit taken off guard.
