    #TIFF10 Reviews: Day 2

    Coincidence that the two superhero movies were on the same day? Probably, but maybe not.

    Griff the Invisible
    Picked because it was a superhero film, Griff the Invisible is a film originating from Australia, and starring one of the guys from True Blood. It was dull and boring with a weak story and equally weak acting. The only thing interesting was the comment from one of the characters theorizing about multiple realities where you may die in one, but continue to live on in another at the point if death. Interesting because this random thought has popped into my head on more than one occasion. Don't see this film. Boring.

    SUPER
    I haven't seen Kick-@$$ yet, but having read the comic, SUPER is probably quite similar. Rainn Wilson (Dwight from the Office) plays someone who decides to fight crime and take revenge on evil doers as a superhero. Ellen Page plays a typically not Ellen Page-like character, to humorous (albeit, violent) results. I've learned that IFC Films bought the film at TIFF, so it will probably get distribution. It's worth checking out, but may not be for everyone. I did laugh. Quite a bit.

    Next up, the first documentary of TIFF and Gackt.
