Reviews of all things I find interesting.

Seduced by the Grand Seduction

September 19, 2013

It’s not easy being a Canadian film. Before people even know a single thing about the actual movie, people are already judging it for being Canadian. Even though it’s been years since the best thing the industry was producing were …

Review: ‘Kim’s Convenience’ is a perfect family comedy about an imperfect family.

September 7, 2013

With the days getting shorter and the nights getting cooler, that can only mean one thing: theatre season is back!  This season, I’ve goal to see as many shows as possible, starting with Kim’s Convenience. Kim’s Convience is the first …

k.d lang’s Balletlujah: Helplessly perfect.

May 9, 2013

Ballet and I haven’t always gotten along.  For me, it’s sorta like that cousin you see at family reunions. You understand why people like them, but you just don’t. But add in a remarkable talent like k.d. lang and a …

Review: An epic battle between Shakepeare and Zombies hits the Calgary stage!

March 28, 2013

I’m pretty lucky to know some great people.  Great people like Alex Kingcott, who I called yesterday when it was decided that I was too sick to go to the opening night of Ground Zero‘s production of William Shakespeare’s Land …

TV Preview: Tom Green plants his “seed” on City!

March 24, 2013

If you need another reason to watch City’s always hilarious Seed, I’ve got two words for you: Tom and Green. That’s right, one of the country’s most outrageous comedians joins the Canadian freshman comedy.  In tonight’s episode  he’s trading in …

Is MTV Canada’s 1g5g healthy or hazardous?

March 21, 2013

A few years ago, I wrote about MTV Canada’s 1 Girl, 5 Gays, a late night talk show that features five gay guys answering questions about love and sex. At the time, it was the most interesting show that MTV …

The addictive music of New Country Rehab!

March 19, 2013

Hi, my name is Mike and I’m addicted to New Country Rehab. No, it’s not a rehabilitation centre for people who think Taylor Swift is country music. New Country Rehab is a fantastic band that comes from Ontario. Their music …

Pros and Cons: Reviewing Big Brother Canada’s first episode!

February 28, 2013

Last night, I surprised myself with my eager anticipation for the premiere of Big Brother Canada. As the final moments of Survivor aired, I knew we were that much closer to Big Brother Canada and I was seriously pumped.  Why?  …

Exploring Azuridge: Alberta’s very own Downton Abbey.

February 18, 2013

If you’re like me, you’re currently going through Downton Abbey withdrawal.  Sunday night’s finale (for those of us who waited patiently) was near perfection, coupled with, of course, gutting sadness.  I sometimes wonder if that family is every going to …

Review: P!nk blows my mind in Vegas! (Photos and videos)

February 17, 2013

All photos were taken with the Canon Powershot SX50 HS In the hours leading up to Pink‘s concert in Las Vegas, I can count on one hand how many times I have been that excited for a concert. Since I …

The free sample of City’s “Seed” worth a shot.

January 29, 2013

(That might be my most innuendo-laced title for a blog post ever.) Next Monday, City will premiere its first original scripted show since (I believe) Less Than Kind in 2008. Luckily, Seed is worth the wait. Ahead of its premiere, …

Is Oprah Calgary’s favourite thing?

January 22, 2013

Oprah is on tour. No, she doesn’t have a rock album to promote, she’s going on tour to do what she does best: talk. The owner of the OWN network is on a mini tour of Western Canada, with stops …

My Christmas in New York City.

January 3, 2013

First things first, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and congrats on anything else that may have happened over the past couple of weeks. I just took the most wonderful vacation in recent memory. I’m sorry that I left the blog …

Review: You’re a lot like Seinfeld Charlie Brown

November 26, 2012

This weekend, the curtain rose on Alberta Theatre Projects new production of the family friendly show You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. For me, Charlie Brown and I have always seen eye to eye. As a grew up, the comparisons …

Review: Catfish: The TV Show a worthy (and terrifying) catch

November 18, 2012

A few years ago, the movie Catfish came out in theatres and I don’t think there’s been a week that has gone by where I haven’t thought about this oddly disturbing and chilling movie. It was about a man named …
