Sherlock Holmes

A new Sherlock Holmes film comes to theatres, and since I hadn’t seen the original of Guy Ritchie’s variant of Sherlock Holmes, I figured time had to come to watch it. It’s hard not to compare it to Sherlock, the BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch, but it’s also stupid to resist it. Both are reimaginings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary character, and they’re both completely different in every way. While Sherlock is modernized, Sherlock Holmes are contemporary to the book. Sherlock is about Holmes’ mind, and Sherlock Holmes is an action film. I cannot dismiss Sherlock Holmes as simply an action film, however. There’s a lot more to the Holmes character than just running… Read More »Sherlock Holmes

#Rocktober30 volume 04: Emily volume 2

This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce. As any sane person knows, having multiple Adams in their lives is a blessing, as is having multiple Emilys. I hung out with Emily C. last night. Seeing as I have two concerts coming up in volume 5 and 6, I jumped at the chance of a quiet night in with a friend. After an excruciating long day at work, I drove from Thornhill to Parkdale. That’s a bloody long drive. I wouldn’t want to live in the west-end. Emily made dinner, a tasty soup, and veggies, and we hung out… Read More »#Rocktober30 volume 04: Emily volume 2

#Rocktober30 volume -01: Cougar Town

This month (well, officially next month) I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce. Today was a day in bed. Ahh, bed, the best place in the world to be. Keeping me company was Courtney Cox and her sitcom Cougar Town. I had never seen the show, and never had any interested in it whatsoever, but the fictional character Abed’s obsession with the show got me interested. Wouldn’t hurt to download the first season and give it a chance. If one is looking for a show similar to the humour of Community, the show that inspired my taste test, you’d… Read More »#Rocktober30 volume -01: Cougar Town


Jekyll is a modern retelling of Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde starring James Nesbitt, and written by Steven Moffat. If you’re unfamiliar with Moffat’s work, what’s wrong with you? He wrote the brilliant sitcom Coupling: He also wrote the brilliant three episode series Sherlock: Now he’s the show runner for Doctor Who: Now back to the subject at hand, Jekyll. Dr. Tom Jackman is already living his double life with his own Mr. Hyde when we meet him. Dr. Jackman brings in a woman (Michelle Ryan *swoon*) to help around the house and  be a middle man to the two sides of Jackman. Jackman is hiding the… Read More »Jekyll

Goals for “vacation”

I’m on pseudo-vacation. The school where I work is on break from today until a week Thursday. I’m working on Monday morning, and Wednesday (all day).

Sherlock Holmes is a genius making a name for himself as a Consulting Detective. Holmes is introduced to an ex-army doctor named John Watson. After moving in together at 221B Baker Street in London, Holmes sees an intellect in Watson, and drags him along on a case. This modern-day take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery stories stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson. The series was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss who are perhaps best known for their recent work on Doctor Who. It’s easy to strike similarities between Holmes and The Doctor, and so it’s no surprise that it was these two writers… Read More »Sherlock

Shit My Dad Says

Dear Mr. Shatner, Thank you for those three years you performed on a television series called Star Trek.  You helped bring to life on of the most important television franchises in human history, and a very important part of my life. You see I’m a geek, and us geeks are really fond of Star Trek. Though it’s camp, cheesy, and over the top, it’s a series that was an important part of my childhood. Whether it was the campy original or the more serious spinoff. Here you are now, in your old age, a retired Starfleet Captain1, who’s trying to (la)forge a relationship with his adult sons. Sure, I thought… Read More »Shit My Dad Says

Maury Chaykin

This past Tuesday, the world lost an incredible actor, Maury Chaykin. The actor has appeared in so many films, to list his credits would be useless. If you’ve seen Atom Egoyan or Don McKellar films, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Chaykin’s work. If you’re a fan of Canadian cinema in general, you’ll have seen Chaykin. The man’s been described best as a character actor, always playing different roles without a single role defining who he is. It’s perhaps his unique look, the rotund man who could either look sinister or jolly at the flip of a switch. He’s so very identifiable, and without the rugged good looks of a… Read More »Maury Chaykin
