Comments:I was referred to the guestbook for a film request.

Does anyone know of any way I might go about getting my hands on a copy of the 1983 film version of Timothy Findley's "The Wars?" This starring Brent Carver, Martha Henry, and William Hutt. I'm not expecting a shiny new DVD, but if there's a VHS out there somewhere I'd more than like to have one.

I'm determined to end this search with success.

I just discovered this great webpage. Seeing that you are an expert for Canadian Movies and TV series, I was wondering if you knew how I can get my hands on "The City" (feat. Torri Higginson)? Being from Germany, the series didn't air over here but I really want to see it. Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Comments:Why do you object to Canadian co-productions not being set in Canada? For example, you objected to THE STATEMENT (a Canada-U.K.-France-U.S. production) not being set in Canada, and you objected to STEAL (a Canada-France-U.K.) production) not being set in Canada. Don't you think those other countries in these co-productions have an equal right to demand where the movies are set? Why do you think it has to be Canada all the time?

Comments:Looking for the movie title of a romantic comedy, set in Saskatchewan (as I recall). The story involves a young woman from the urban east whose Euro sports car breaks down near a farm town out on the prairies. Her type A personality eventually succumbs to the slower, friendlier ways of the locals and she stays to reopen the general store with a love interest from the locals.

Comments:Love your site!

You might want to include a link to as his love for cheesy candiana is thorough and explicit!

Also, I wanted to comment that anti-Canadian sentiment in the movie industry may be coming mostly from resentment as a lot of industry insiders are outwardly furious that Canadian cinema is "stealing their jobs" (their words)

Keep it up!

Comments:Love the site! I have another recommendation on Canadian films (made by Non-Canadians. Fiend Without A Face. It is a 1958 British film about an US airbase at Winthrop, Manitoba, Canada and how their radar tests with nuclear power creates invisible brain creatures to suck out the brains. There is a little more to it than that. The local farming community thinks a crazy US recruit is the cause of the deaths. I can't remember if this was on the list originally or not. I do check it out once a week.

Comments:I've just spent 4 very enjoyable hours looking for something that I couldn't find (more about that in a sec). I would skim a page, something would catch my eye, I would pause to read, and then onwards.

Ok. What I was looking for was the name of the actor who appeared in a Canadian-made suspense. Do I have any more info? No. Which is probably why I wasn't able to find what I was looking for! Well, a few more details. I THINK the movie was set in B.C. Or was it New Brunswick? Anyway, the point is that the main actor (male) was extremely good-looking and not a terrible actor and I was surprised he wasn't more famous. His name flashed by so quickly on the credits that all I could determine was that it was Eastern European (too many consonants for me to figure out the pronunciation fast enough). It was one of those late-night movies, probably not terribly recent. And that's all I know (can't even remember the plot).

Comments:Great site! I'm trying to find a video/dvd/download of the (1972 I think) film Mahoney's Last Stand (aka Mahoney's Estate) . Anyone know if this is available somehow? The soundtrack is superb - I bought in on cassette in 1976 - Ron Wood (Faces, Stones) and the late Ronnie Lane (Faces, Slim Chance).

Comments:I've seen Bon cop, bad cop and I understand why they put emphasis on the canadianess of the movie and not the plot, because the plot is as thin as a needle. Most of the movie is making big jokes about the difference or common stereotype. I like that movie, but well, just forget your brain home. Like Huard said, it's an entertainment, nothing more. Having that in mind, I'm sure you will have fun watching that movie like I did.

Just wonder if everyone will understand some of the jokes, some seems to be more francophone related like the phamiliprix joke.

Comments:I would like to see you do an essay analyzing the box office performance of this year's "The Rocket" (a.k.a. "Maurice Richard") and "Bon Cop Bad Cop". Both movies got good reviews. Both movies were heavily marketed. Both movies got a wide release in English Canada. Yet both movies bombed in English Canada. I would like you to explain this. P.S. Why didn't *you* go out and support these movies?

Comments:Re: Cronenberg's "Spider" -- Time and effort has required a certain re-assigning of priorities. As a movie neither filmed nor set in Canada, with a predominantly non-Canadian cast, and based on a non-Canadian book...well, it's been bumped down the "to do" list for a "Canadian" film site. We'll get to it eventually, though, never fear.

Comments:I so enjoyed looking at the Guide, although I don't always agree with your reviews.
It saddens me that so many Canadian films and TV shows seem to pander to American tastes so outrageously. I would hope that my countrymen and -women are more sophisticated than that! Surely Canadian stories are as good as American (and British, French, German, Australian, etc.) ones. I, for one, would like to know more about our neighbors to the north -- I really think this is necessary for world peace (!) I have always enjoyed the movies that I have known were Canadian ones. And I pride myself on recognizing a lot of Canadian actors. [I think I have titles for you, too, but I'll have to think about that.]

You might consider references to such sites as:

(It's nice to have pictures!)

Thank you for all of the work you have put into this site. It's quite good. Multitudinous accolades!
