Review – Little Monsters (2019): Fantasia International Film Festival!

by Vincent Leblanc

It’s Day 2 of the Fantasia International Film Festival  and I started the evening with the Quebec Premiere of the Australian zombie comedy Little Monsters. It had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in their Midnight Program back in January. It then went on to play at SXSW and the Calgary Underground Film Festival. The film was written and directed by Abe Forsythe and stars Lupita Nyong’o, Alexander England, and Josh Gad.

Review – US (2019)

by Kevin Muller

There are movies, like any entry out of The Fast and the Furious series, that you invest time, marvel at the action, say something positive, or negative, about it, and then walk out of the theater. Sure, you may talk about it with your friends about the physic defying action, but it won’t hit you the way Jordan Peele’s new film Us does. You will go through all the motions mentioned, but it isn’t a film you will react to, but let sink in and digest.

It’s a very ambitious and worthy follow up to his first film, Get Out, which won him acclaim and an Academy Award for “Best Original Screenplay.”

In these days, CGI, or computer generated imagery, is so common that we actually yearn and gravitate towards old school practical effects.   Spike Jonze adapted the famous children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” using people in giant costumes to portray his monsters instead of fully rendering them with computer graphics and the original “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, definitely not “The Hobbit” movies, used as little CGI as possible.   Every so often, a movie comes along that pushes the bar further for what CGI is really capable of achieving.  Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” is that very movie.  It is a visual masterpiece and a great retelling of the famous Disney cartoon.
