The 5 Women Who Made Me: Mariah Owen

Behind every successful woman is more women who inspired her, lifted her up and supported her throughout her career. This is exactly the case with Mariah Owen, a 22-year-old film producer/actor/writer. We recently caught up with her to talk about what it’s like to be a woman in a male-dominated industry, her new film M.F.A. and the five women who shaped her career. Read more about this up-and-coming producer under the cut!

Why Bill Murray is the Greatest Ever

It’s safe to say that Mr. Murray can do no wrong. From his oddly charming roles in film to his bold wardrobe, Bill proves that he is the king. Of everything.  read more…

MIXTAPE: Songs On Film

Best in show, these songs on film are the real stars of Hollywoodland: and, from the sounds of it, Spike Jonze, Baz Luhrmann and Quentin Tarantino agree. With the Academy Awards only days away, there’s no better soundtrack to get you in the spirit than our playlist of tunes written specifically for the silver screen.
The feature length film score is an audiophile’s haven. Home of many an unlikely cover, collaboration, and remix, soundtracks are the icing on top of the cake. (Note: this cake is probably a prop – DO NOT EAT!) And when the credits roll and you think it’s all over, there’s always exit music (for a film) to keep you wanting more. If you’re lucky enough, it’s by Radiohead. read more…

Sunday Morning Moodboard: Film Photography Eye Candy

There’s something magically beautiful in the ephemeral moments captured through film photography. No matter how mundane the photograph appears, we still get nostalgic fuzzy tingles when we see authentic film grain. #NOFILTER

We highly recommend giving your Instagram account a break and buying a disposable camera to capture your next weekend; given you’re not going to be staying home with your cat the whole time (or maybe…). read more…

Makeover Movies That Make Us Want Makeovers

Let’s face it. Watching the underdog become the popular girl in school has always had the ability to pull at our heartstrings. Whether it’s Hathaway in “The Princess Diaries” or the taco girl (Rachael Lee Cook) in “She’s All That”, the beautification process really hits home. Though we’re all for ~being true to yourself~ and being happy in your own skin, we can’t help but love these fictional realities.

If you’ve always felt a little bit weird about your penchant for these conventional tales, don’t worry – we’re pretty sure our DNA is configured to yearn for a shallow happily ever after. read more…

The Great Debate: Digital vs. Analogue

“Film has soul.” There’s no denying the ~humanistic essence~ of the technical imperfections of film – but on the other hand, you’ve got digital photography serving up crystal clear clicks for the snap-happy shooter. To dark room or not to dark room – it’s the great divide! Just as we’ve been forced to choose sides time and time before (re: team Jacob vs. team Edward, Nsync vs. BSB etc) the digital crew and analogue supporters are calling us to pledge allegiance to a tribe. Before you point-and-shoot or charge-and-load, read up on our breakdown of the fashion crowd at either end of the spectrum, Olivia Bee (obviously) included. Feast your eyes on some killer photography and then decide: are you #TeamDigital or #AllAboutAnalogue?

(And for the record: BSB was the correct answer…) read more…

10 Reasons We Should All Join Zach Braff’s New Kickstarter Project


Photo: Kickstarter.com

So the good news is, Zach Braff is finally in the works of giving us another movie. The bad news is, there’s no funding to make it (yet). But that is where we can/should help him out. To refresh your memory: Zach Braff is the quirky, hilarious, and attractive man who wrote-directed-produced and starred in his film Garden State back in ’04. SO, if you consider yourself a movie-lover in any way/shape/form, then let’s just assume that you loved Garden State and have been impatiently waiting for another film that tells a story so simple, yet so memorable. While there have been other flicks that share this particular “Garden State-esque” essence — Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, The Perks of Being a Wallflower – I, for one, would la-la-love to see Mr. Braff get back behind (and in front) of the camera for some more movie-magic-making-moments. Therefore, I have put together a list of 10 reasons why we should and must get out butts onto Kickstarter to help Zach out. read more…

So while you’re all cozied up, get off Facebook, close your Vogue and get your fashion fix elsewhere. Here are 10 fashion flicks for you to chill out to this reading week & because we love you, we’ve also double checked that they’re all available on Netflix Canada.
