TIFF 2020: 'Another Round' is One of Thomas Vinterberg's Best Films

"The world is never as you expect." That's the truth, even when we don't want it to be. Originally selected as a 2020 Cannes Film Festival premiere (before that fest was cancelled this year), Thomas Vinterberg's latest film is instead premiering at the 2020 Toronto Film Festival this fall. Another Round brings Vinterberg back home to Denmark and reteams him with exceptionally talented Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen to tell a story about drinking alcohol. Druk is the film's original Danish title, ...

TIFF 2020: 'Shadow in the Cloud' Creature Feature on a B-17 Bomber

One of my favorite things about film festivals is discovering exceptional filmmakers by stumbling upon their break-out features. This film is one of the best discoveries of the 2020 Toronto Film Festival, playing in the prestigious Midnight Madness category. Shadow in the Cloud has a crazy, wickedly impossible concept - follow a woman who gets on a rickety B-17 Bomber, known as the "Flying Fortress" in WWII, as she escorts a special classified package that must not be opened. The whole film ta...

[Review] Sena Outrush Modular Helmet

Sena provided this helmet at no-cost for the purposes of this review. Thank you, Sena! Introduction In heading towards the fall season and with (hopefully) the worst of the heat and humidity behind us, but in coping with our COVID-19 environment, our motorcycling activities are ramping back up (not that they stopped) to take advantage of the cooler and perhaps drier weather; but in not forgetting the rules and maintaining the necessary protocols. Prolonged distance travel, especially ADV orien...

The GoPro Hero9 Is a Little Bigger and a Lot Better in Every Possible Way

It wasn’t long ago that action cameras were in an arms race to make the smallest possible device. In fact, a smaller profile was one of the things GoPro was boasting about just last year with the launch of the Hero8 Black. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that GoPro went bigger this year in almost every way. Bigger body,…Read more...

The $24,000 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is a thrifty fuel saver that'll leave you wondering why everyone isn't driving it

My Toyota Corolla Hybrid wore a sharp red paint job. Matthew DeBord/Insider I tested a $24,855 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, from the 2021 model year — the US market has been denied this vehicle until recently. Like the non-hybrid Corolla, the Hybrid version is just a few notches above basic transportation, and the LE trim level (the only one available) has low-key styling and a bland interior. But the Corolla Hybrid has Toyota's proven technology under the hood. The hybrid drivetrain is based on...

Venice 2020: Chloe Zhao's Soulful, Gorgeous 'Nomadland' Journey

Home is where the heart is. And as they say in this film: a house is not the same as a home. Being house-less is not the same as being homeless. That's a lesson we can all learn. Nomadland is the third feature film made by acclaimed filmmaker Chloe Zhao, following her massive success with the indie film The Rider in 2017/2018. This time she follows a lonely drifter named Fern as she travels around various places in the United States of America in a van she calls home. She lives and sleeps in t...

REVIEW: The Chevy Trailblazer completely surprised me with its combination of technology and a small yet punchy engine

The Chevy Trailblazer combines high-tech with snazzy styling. Matthew DeBord/Insider I tested a 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, with all-wheel-drive in the well-optioned Activ trim. The as-tested price was $32,350, but the vehicle can be had for $19,000, base. The Trailblazer borrows some snazzy design cues from the larger Chevy Blazer. These set it apart from the competition, which includes compact crossovers from Kia, Mazda, and Honda. The Trailblazer has two engine and transmission options. My ...

The Audi e-tron was built to challenge the Tesla Model X — I drove the all-electric SUVs to see how they stack up

The Audi e-tron is a good electric SUV, but it's not as good as the Tesla Model X. Matthew DeBord/Insider I compared an $89,000 Audi e-tron SUV and a Tesla Model X, now selling for about $100,000.The Model X has been the premier electric SUV in the market since 2015. The e-tron was touted as a challenger.But the e-tron has far less range than the Model X, and depending on trim levels, the e-tron can end up costing more than the Tesla.It's tough to argue against the Model X, even though ...

REVIEW: I've fallen in and out of love with the VW GTI — but the 44-year-old hot hatch can still work its magic on me

VW GTI Matthew DeBord/Insider The legendary VW Golf GTI arrived in 1976 when I was nine years old. It's captivated me for decades, but I've found plenty of other cars to fall for in 44 years. VW recently loaned me a 2020 GTI that stickered at about $38,000. As usual, I initially thought the GTI was a little crude compared with fancier cars, and even with the VW Golf R, a snazzier sibling that I last drove a few years ago. But over a week, the GTI worked its charms on me, and once again I a...

TFB Review: Holosun 507K Mini Red Dot Sight

Venice 2020: Gia Coppola's 'Mainstream' Gets Right Up in Your Face

The internet is a fame machine. It can turn nobodies into world famous celebrities in the blink of an eye. We all know how it works, of course, but is internet fame really a good thing anymore? Probably Definitely not. But everyone is still addicted to fame and fortune and money, even if it's just to watch someone else become famous. Especially the younger generations, so many teens need that attention and adoration to feel good about themselves. First Ingrid Goes West, then Spree, and now M...

Venice 2020: Two Bozos & One Giant Fly in Dupieux's 'Mandibules'

What do two idiots, one giant fly, and Adèle Exarchopoulos have in common? Absolutely nothing! Except for a desire to eat good food and enjoy themselves in the summer sun. Mandibules is the latest creation from wacky French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux (of Rubber, Wrong, Reality, Deerskin) and it's an amusing, lighthearted, unquestionably enjoyable film about uh, two idiots, one giant fly, and Adèle Exarchopoulos. It's super weird, super French, buddy comedy ridiculousness. But that's the magic o...

Life is not only happiness and love and wonderful moments, as much we all wish it were.
