If you hated the summer movie selection, keep your eyes peeled because TIFF's (Toronto International Film Festival) ever-increasing lineup is jam-packed with films we'll have to watch out for over the next year or two.

TIFF sounded fun when it grabbed Guy Maddin and Atom Egoyan for short film magic, and then decided to kick off this year's lineup with a hockey musical. It sounded downright great when names like Robert Redford, Darren Aronofsky, Mark Romanek, and Ben Affleck were added to the list. Now, well, the fest is tip-toeing into irresistible territory with some added drama from the likes of John Sayles, Clint Eastwood, Matt Reeves, and Missy Tadjedin, and some Midnight Madness that includes John Carpenter and James Gunn.
