TIFF 2018: Halloween Reboot Is Kinda Fan Fiction (With Bonus Podcast)

Halloween

Halloween

The rebooted Halloween horror franchise is a really big deal in some (bloodthirsty) circles, so Sarah was assigned to cover the film when it showcased at TIFF this fall.

Her opinion: It’s kinda fan fiction-y, but it works.

To read her whole review head over to Consequence Of Sound by clicking here.

If that’s not enough Michael Myers content, Sarah also appeared on Consequence’s themed-Halloweenies podcast to discuss the film. You can listen to that here:

Warrior, The Bruce Lee-Inspired Show, Makes Its Debut

Warrior

Warrior

The late martial arts film star Bruce Lee is still a big deal around the world.

That’s why when the new Lee-inspired show Warrior debuted earlier this year there was a suitably large amount of attention paid to it.

Sarah wrote a primer on the new show for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Sambo And Kickboxing Recognized By The Olympics

On November 30 the International Olympic Community Executive Board officially acknowledged that combat sports sambo and kickboxing officially exist.

While this may sound kind of weird for two sports with rich, long legacies, what it means is that their respective governing bodies can now build towards potential application to be included in future Olympic games.

Sarah wrote about this development for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

TIFF 2018: Mid90s Captures A Different Era

Mid90s

Mid90s

They probably had her at the subtle F-Zero nod, but Sarah was thoroughly taken by the tough coming-of-age film Mid90s when she saw it at TIFF this year.

The film, which was directed by Jonah Hill, perfectly captures the mood and the feelings of that era.
