When we asked him what he was doing there, he claimed to be searching for the love of his life who had been kidnaped by a biolumiscent talking whale named Jericho. When we asked him to join our news crew, he surprised us by skiing effortlessly down on a pair of moleskin skis screwed together by shards of a broken whiskey bottle. He wrote three news articles before he reached the bottom of the hill, and this athleticism led to him being named Sports Assistant and Golden Spatula winner of the week.

  Movie review: PrisonersPDF files may take a moment to load

It takes a great movie to fill a 150-minute running time, make an audience emotionally invest in characters who sometimes do terrible things and thrill the audience from beginning to end, but Prisoners does that and more. This is a fantastic thriller that does pretty much everything it needs to do exceptionally well — to not see it would be doing a disservice to yourself and the film industry. This is a film to get excited about.

  Movie review: Don JonPDF files may take a moment to load

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s feature-length directorial debut certainly could have gone worse than Don Jon: an unremarkable but functional movie about a man’s addiction to pornography. It also could have been a whole lot better. The problem comes less from Gordon-Levitt’s talent behind the camera — it’s shot fine and there are a few flourishes of style here and there — and more from the screenplay, which he also wrote, which is repetitive and predictable in nature and doesn’t feel particularly true-to-life.

control.

Hundreds of Calgarians gathered on Friday, Sept. 20, at Connaught Park for Take Back The Night, an annual rally to protest violence against women.

The rally began with speakers and performers. Afterwards, women marched through the streets unescorted by men to dramatize their right to walk alone safely.

“The most symbolic thing we do during the event is march through the streets,” said event organizer Christina Pyne. “Women take to the streets to symbolize their power to walk alone at night without being afraid.”
