Reel Toronto: A Christmas Story

Because everyone needs a break now and then, Reel Toronto is going on temporary hiatus. Here is one of our favourite installments, which originally ran on December 16, 2008. First, credit where it’s due. The Toronto Star beat us to the punch researching this, but since they didn’t have screencaps, and since they borrowed some […]

Reel Toronto: Good Hogtown Hunting

Because everyone needs a break now and then, Reel Toronto is going on temporary hiatus. Here is one of our favourite instalments, which originally ran on January 3, 2008. Good Will Hunting does it right. See, some movies (like Blues Brothers 2000) think they can fool you and save a few bucks by shooting in […]

Where The Fly Was Filmed in Toronto

Because everyone needs a break now and then, Reel Toronto is going on temporary hiatus. Here is one of our favourite instalments, which originally ran on February 9, 2011.

Reel Toronto: Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Because everyone needs a break now and then, Reel Toronto is going on temporary hiatus. Here is one of our favourite installments, which originally ran on October 21, 2008.

Reel Toronto: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Because celebrities are the bestest and most important people on Earth, one of our favourite things in doing this column is finding out the funky places they’ve been. There’s something oddly compelling about the idea that Nicole Kidman has been to a Brampton dollar store or that Al Pacino hung out at the Horseshoe Tavern, we think.

Reel Toronto: To Die For

To Die For somehow managed to shoot just about everywhere in the GTA except for Toronto. Still, we’re not above venturing out to the 905 for the sake of an actual quality film. It’s got a pre-Botox Nicole Kidman tearing it up, not to mention a damned fine supporting cast that includes the likes of future–Oscar nominees Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix.

Reel Toronto: New York Minute

Toronto’s extensive work on the silver screen reveals that, while we have the chameleonic ability to look like anywhere from New York City to Moscow, the disguise doesn’t always hold up to scrutiny.
