Toronto International Film Fest Ramblings

    Will I bang your beachball TIFF?

    Will I bang your beachball TIFF?

    Norm and I discuss the two big announcements from TIFF this past week. We pour one out for the 31 fallen – and then discuss the current plans for the TIFF20 Festival. 



    Big question – do we plan to go for in person screenings if they have them this year?



    Includes many Disney+ tangents – weirdly more because of the Mandalorian and not as much because of Hamilton.

    If There’s Hell Below

    If There’s Hell Below

    Rian and I reboot my Keanu rewatch mission and figure what better time to Constantine than now at this prequel to end times we are all experiencing together.



    We rediscover our love of Keanu, Rachel Weisz Tilda Swinton in a suit, Djimon Hounsou in genre things, Shia LeBeouf, Peter Stormare, Max Baker, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Gavin Rossdale.



    This film happens after the matrices but long before the Wick era – a period where one of our favourite Canadians seemed to have the money / time / comfort level with his ability to keep working to say – “sure why not” and the result is this gem that truly deserves a rewatch.

    Children, Printers, and Puppets are Inherently Evil

    Andrew from Geek Hard and I have some troublesome views on what the endgame should be for creepy children in genre films. We manage to stay somewhat on topic about our experience at the 2019 Blood in the Snow (BITS) film festival that took place in Toronto from November 21 to 26 at The Royal cinema.



    We discuss some of the films that we enjoyed including:

Relax and grab a drink

Combined with a fantastic pop culture approach on movies and current social trends, J&P are entertaining and colourful.
Love listening to them and can’t get enough of the guests!

Carlos_Listens ,

Just terrible.

Ended up thinking this was a legitimate podcast about the TIFF. I dont know what is more mediocre this podcast or the actual festival.

Cpaulj ,

I love this podcast.

J & P have voices like angels, like soft freshly whipped butter.
