I KILLED MY MOTHER 83/100

Dan Jardine's take:
"Xavier Dolan has done at 19 what most of us will never accomplish: produce a legitimate work of art that communicates to us in innovative, challenging and affecting ways."

LOVE SIMPLE 44/100

Dan Jardine's take:
"Beyond the near-uniform lameness of the acting, including the leads, the story is entirely predictable and utterly banal."

BEST DVDs OF THE PAST MONTH
1Princess and the Frog, The
THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG 74/100

Brian Webster's take:
"An appealing gumbo that’s going to satisfy kids as well as adults and allow us to move into a new era where the races of the main characters are less important than the story."
