Toronto Video Reviews: Defendor & Capitalism: A Love Story
"Just call me... Defendor!" Although the Toronto Film Festival has wrapped up, our coverage isn't entirely finished just yet. A few days ago Peter from SlashFilm and I decided to just recorded a video on the streets of Toronto talking about our thoughts on both Peter Stebbings' Defendor and Michael Moore's new doc Capitalism: A Love Story. Not only was it just easier to record all this, but now you get to hear both perspectives on these two films. It's a fun little video that's worth checking out, especially if you want to hear more about either of those films. So without further ado, drop what you're doing and fire this video up!
My basic opinion on both films is that I liked them quite a bit. Defendor is an incredibly fun low-budget superhero comedy with a great lead performance from Woody Harrelson. It's completely entertaining but not a complete knock out of the park. Capitalism: A Love Story is also a great doc, although it takes a while to really get going and get into things, Michael Moore delivers in the end, as expected. Sure it's going to be controversial, that goes without saying, but I always enjoy seeing Moore's antics on the big screen.
