Late August fare: two smart films, two Canadian, a bit of imperialism and a lot of dancing

'The End of the Tour' and 'Mistress America' lead the pack but a 'Backcountry' horror and some B.C. mountain men aren’t far behind.

'Man from UNCLE', rappers' 'Outta Compton' and sexy stuff in a 'Teenage Girl’ diary

Also a quick history of Women’s Lib, a wannabe screwball comedy and uplifting homilies beautifully animated

Rockin’ Meryl Streep, creepy 'Gift', the Vancouver birth of Greenpeace and brilliant 'Shaun the Sheep'

There’s also deadpan humour from Norway in "1001 Grams" and a mystery dud, "Dark Places", undone by too much plot.

Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation, Vacation, and a historic debate

Reviews of the latest Mission Impossible, Vacation, Best of Enemies, Tangerine, Madame Bovary and Eden

New angst from Woody Allen, boxing by Jake Gyllenhaal and killer stories in 'The Look of Silence'

... And much more, including a film all in sign language, a Scottish musical, a Chinese re-made rom-com, and the attack of killer arcade games from outer space.

Reviews of Ant-Man, Mr. Holmes and Trainwreck plus four international films

Also Suite Francaise from France, About Elly from Iran, Jimmy’s Hall from Ireland and Strangerland from Australia with Nicole Kidman

'Minions', 'Amy' and a Billy Connolly comedy lead a big slate of new films

Also a Ryan Reynolds thriller, A Samuel L. Jackson action film, 11-year-olds reflecting on life and a son and his parents partying at Burning Man.

Two big Hollywood sequels and a batch of worthy indies

Reviews of 'Terminator Genisys', 'Magic Mike XXL', 'Infinitely Polar Bear', 'The Overnight', 'The Wolfpack' and 'Martin’s Pink Pickle.'

A foul mouthed teddy bear, Swedish humour, a Kiwi western and an Indian 'Godfather'

Reviews of 'Ted 2', 'A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence', 'Slow West' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur'
