  1. “1911” actually came out in North America this week. In fact, it’s officially out since yesterday. But it’s only out on limited theatrical release so it’s pretty hard to find a theatre that’ll be playing it. Even harder for Toronto since it’s only playing at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Downtown. Parking’s a bitch in downtown!

  2. Ugh…my experience at TIFF Bell Lightbox was dreadful! Didn’t get to see the movie but what pissed me off was they didn’t allow me to get a full refund. We had a change of plans and decided not to watch the movie. Also, 720p (pretty much equivalent to 1080i) is still high definition. Just not full HD. DVD is at best 480p.
