TIFF 2012 Day 7

Mr Viral

Intersecting stories of the secret world of ad executives. Stacey suspects that her lesbian lover is cheating on her, but who is the betrayer and who is betrayed? Shy Bruce is looking for love in all the wrong places, but that lascivious online dating website proves too tempting to resist. Simon realizes that an ad campaign needs a drastic overhaul and delves into a dark underworld of his own making to meet the numbers. Darkly funny, this film shows us the worst of who we are beneath the thin veneer of civility. 8/10

The Bay

Found-footage film of an ecological disaster in Chesapeake Bay that starts killing the residents of a small town. I hate found-footage films. Dominated by standard definition webcams and security cams (and a few HD cams), you can imaging how awful it looked on the big screen. No matter how good the plot or acting or special effects, it will always look like shit. Ignoring the style, this film is basically “Piranha” meets “The Andromeda Strain”, neither of which is a good movie. Barry Levinson, this film is beneath you. 4/10

One thought on “TIFF 2012 Day 7

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my
    own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!
