  1. Mitch Toews's rating of the film Islands in the Stream

    Green Isaacs Special: Hendricks gin, crushed ice, coconut water - shake. Pour into a tall glass, squeeze in half a lime and enough bitters to add some rust colour. Wrap in two paper towels with a rubber band to keep them in place. Drink deeply.

  2. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Islands in the Stream

    Polished adventure-drama based on a Hemingway story retains the author's rich invocation of exotic locales and repressed emotions. The cast is strong, though as good as Scott is in the lead, it's Hemmings who steals the show much of the time. The uneven pacing is a hinderance at times, with moments of taut intensity sometimes bridged by dragging dialogue scenes. Not any kind of classic, but a solid, well-made film.
