Review: 'Star Trek Beyond' into lightness. http://yvar.ca/29XIveX
Fast & Furious director Justin Lin takes over for J.J. Abrams (still a producer) in the new Star Trek universe and returns the franchise to its sci-fi adventure roots in the Gene Rodenberry mould. Star Trek Beyond is a rousing an episodic story of teamwork and pure escapist fun with a familiar ...

Review: On the 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' and laughs. http://yvar.ca/29Xyv4P
New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi goes to the bush for his latest film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, loosely based on the adventure book Wild Pork and Watercress by Barry Crump. A hilariously goofy and warm film about outcasts surviving in the wild, it's an undeniably charming film with a wide ...

Review: 'Swiss Army Man' is a gas. http://yvar.ca/29dO9do
Written and directed by music video filmmaking duo Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, collectively known as and credited as the "Daniels", Swiss Army Man—often accurately referred to as that "farting corpse movie"—is a bizarre but sweet exploration of loneliness and hope for the pair's feature ...

Review: Spielberg brings 'The BFG' to life. http://yvar.ca/29d0NtQ
Steven Spielberg has returned to his magical cinematic world of imagination to adapt Roald Dahl's 1982 children's book, The BFG. The film adaptation is a surreal mix of sensibilities from Spielberg's own trademark sense of wonder to Dahl's vividly dark but childlike world while juggling the task ...

Review: Women 'Answer the Call' in 'Ghostbusters'. http://yvar.ca/29Jr93b
Veteran comedy filmmaker Paul Feig takes on the unenviable task of remaking the Ghostbusters franchise through a decidedly all-female focus set in present day. It's a weird movie that works mostly for its top shelf cast and crew, but on the other hand, is largely disappointing as a franchise ...

Mister Ice Cream in Yaletown. http://yvar.ca/misteryt
Yaletown—Mister is Downtown Vancouver's latest addition to the nouveau ice cream trend. However, Mister specializes in the liquid nitrogen made variety of dessert. Just opened, they've started with a handful of special flavours (all very different from each other) for every taste and preference.
