We discuss the news of the week. Idris Elba sings onto the Dark Tower TV series as well as the film. August is reported by comic distribution company Diamond to be the biggest units sold in the month in 20 years.

Our review of Netflix’s ARQ starring Robbie Amell, Rachael Taylor and Shaun Benson. Synopsis: ARQ, starring Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Rachael Taylor (Jessica Jones) is a Netflix original film set in a dystopian society, written and directed by Tony Elliott (Orphan Black). In a future where corporations battle against sovereign nations over the last of the world’s energy supplies, young engineer Renton and Hannah find themselves attempting to save an experimental energy technology that could end the wars. The catch is, the technology has created a time loop that causes them to relive a deadly home invasion over and over again. They must figure out how to stop the time loop and come out of it alive.
We also talk about all things TIFF. The Toronto International Film Festival has become a staple of the movie going world. Much like Cannes, Sundance and Telluride, TIFF is one of the biggest film fests out there, bringing in movie fans from across the globe. The festival wrapped up this past weekend and we’re going to give you a rundown of everything that went down. Joined via phone by our man at TIFF, writer and editor Will Perkins (Art of the Title, Dork Shelf), we find out which films were the best and worst of the fest.
