In the name of the mighty Odin, what this movie needs is an audience that knows how to laugh. Laugh, I tell you, laugh! Has the spirit of irony been lost in the land? By all the gods, if it were not for this blasted infirmity that the Fates have

Wonderful for the young only

Mr. Magorium is 243 years old, he informs us. He has possibly survived so long by being incapable of boredom. Life for him is a daily adventure, which he shares with the children who pack into his magical toy store. And let’s talk about the toy store first. If the

Award-winning Bella hits the screen

“Bella” tells the story of two people who fall in love because of an unborn child. Winner of the Audience Award at Toronto 2006, it is a heart-tugger with the confidence not to tug too hard. It stars an actor named Eduardo Verastegui, whom I would describe as the next

Rocking out for Mr. Punk

What exactly does it mean to be “punk rock?” While I’ve offered my opinion on the matter a number of times here in the Weekly Volcano, in truth, what the hell do I know? I’m about as punk rock as Bette Midler. (And for those playing at home, Ms. Midler
