The Toronto Film Festival continues until Sept. 16 which means we’ve started the slow march to award season. Crap, that means that the year is almost over. In the meantime, there might be a couple of good movies on the horizon. Or not. /Shane Hnetka


Friday 14

THE PREDATOR Original cast member Shane Black returns to the franchise to write and direct this sequel about a group of heavily armed mercs teaming up with an alien at Christmas to take down a bigger, more evil predator while foul-mouthed kids crack jokes. I’m kidding, sort of, but Black’s movies almost always have precocious kids, unlikely friendships and the holiday season. Just look at  Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Nice Guys and even Iron Man 3. Then again, some of those are great. This should be all right, as long as no predators slide down chimneys in Santa Claus costumes.

A SIMPLE FAVOR This mystery from director Paul Feig (Ghostbusters, The Heat) has Anna Kendrick looking into the disappearance of her friend, played by Blake Lively. It looks like it should be a comedy but I guess it’s not?

UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION A kind-of sequel to the 2014 film. Both focus on the life of Louis Zamperini, an American taken prisoner by the Japanese during the Second World War. This one zooms-in on Zamperini’s conversion to Christianity and his work for legendary evangelist Billy Graham. Looks bad and Graham was a homophobic ghoul who looked like Tales Of The Crypt’s Crypt Keeper so you might want to skip this.

WHITE BOY RICK This bio-pic follows a teenager in the ’80s who became a drug dealer then was recruited as a federal informant. Matthew McConaughey co-stars as the boy’s hustler father.

Friday 21

FAHRENHEIT 11/9 Michael Moore’s latest doc about the perpetually messed-up state of the United States focuses on Donald Trump’s unlikely election to president and the terribleness that came with that.

THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN THE WALLS Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in this adaptation of the classic children’s novel about a young orphaned boy staying with his warlock uncle (Black). Meanwhile, the house they live in hides an evil clock ticking down to the destruction of the world. Weirdly enough, this kid’s movie is directed by Eli Roth, the guy who brought audiences such delightful films as Cabin Fever, Hostel and The Green Inferno. I’m not sure how to feel about this.

LIFE ITSELF Writer/director Dan Fogelman is behind this sprawling, multi-generational romantic drama about different people connected by a significant event. Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Olivia Cooke, Laia Costa, Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas star. Early reviews in Variety and The Guardian were bad.

Friday 28

HELL FEST Dumb-looking horror about teens who visit at haunted house at an amusement park and are stalked by a masked killer. The 2017 documentary Haunters: The Art of the Scare is more interesting than this is going to be. You can find it on Netflix.

LITTLE WOMEN A modern re-telling of the classic 1868 coming-of-age story by Louisa May Alcott. It’s probably not very good and anyway, there’s another take coming next year with Meryl Streep. There’s also at least six versions that have been filmed over the years, so I advise not bothering with this.

NIGHT SCHOOL A comedy about high-school dropouts trying to get their GED at night school. Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish star.

SMALLFOOT This animated movie follows a yeti as he tries to prove to his tribe that the legendary “smallfoot” —  a.k.a. humans — exist. Yeah, it looks pretty dumb. Director Karey Kirkpatrick’s last movie was the 2009 Eddie Murphy dud Imagine That.
