Radulov has a history of partying hard...

Promises of change were made, local sports media talked about a major shake-up happening, and with that in mind Marc Bergevin, Habs General Manager, sure did not disappoint! After drafting future number one D-man Mikhail Sergachev and trading Lars Eller for gritty forward Andrew Shaw, it happened—P. K. was traded! Fast forward a week later, Marc Bergevin, who is said not to be a fan of July 1st free agency day, signed often troubled KHL winger Alexander Radulov.

Fantasia 2016: Third Time's the Charm

This my third time attending the Fantasia Film Festival, one of the crème de la crèmes of genre cinema. It is also the 20th anniversary of the festival. I have seen the triumphs of films like Boyhood, Frank, Tangerine, and Cop Car have been my past favourites of Fantasia. I was so excited for this festival reveal that I got up at 4 AM, 5:30 AM, and 6 AM when my alarm finally went off, even though the press conference was only at 11 AM. The festival has over 130 diverse features from North America and around the globe.

The head of Montreal's Anglican Church will allow same-sex marriages to happen in her diocese.

According to CBC News, Bishop Mary Irwin-Gibson says she will not allow the institution to dictate how a union between two people should be.

Her statement comes as a vote for marriage reform was made among members at its Toronto headquarters, the week of July 13th.

With the results in a narrow margin - a recent error in the vote-counting led the outcome to be overturned in favor of same-sex marriage.


The Neon Demon: Disturbingly Beautiful

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

There have been films in the past that have unravelled the Los Angeles dream myth, and that show the seedy darkness that encapsulates the city of glitz and glamour.

Me Before You: Whimsically Charming

Directed by Thea Sharrock

Based on the novel by Jojo Moyes, Me Before You is a romantic mellow drama starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin. As with any romantic mellow drama, there will be tears, man tears in my case, and laughs.

This genre truly lies with the chemistry of both the on screen actor and actress. From the trailer Clarke looks delightfully charming with a whimsical sense of adventure. The question is, how charming will this film be, and will sparks fly between Clarke and Claflin?

The P. K. Subban trade is good for the Montreal Canadiens!

Sure, I liked P. K. but...

I was asked to write an article about the draft held in Buffalo last Friday, which ultimately was overshadowed by the Subban trade rumours (thanks George Laraques and 91.9 Sport). The trade never materialised then, which in retrospect I think is a good thing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of Plot Ideas

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows
Produced by Michael Bay, directed by David Green

I don't know what I was thinking when I subjected myself to reviewing producer Michael Bay's latest epic gem Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows, directed by David Green. As my friend put it "Ughh!!! Remi why are you subjecting yourself to this?". My answer before walking in was to see how bad this diamond in the rough or polished masterpiece of a film this is.

Green Room

Written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier

I wasn't sure what to expect before watching Green Room. I saw the trailer and was intrigued—a thriller combining touring bands playing raucous punk rock, and the evil kingpin being played by the illustrious Sir Patrick Stewart? You had me at thriller, you sealed the deal at Jean-Luc.
