"Get Out" a good mix of comedy and horror

"Get Out" I guess would naturally have some strong humour it in as Jordan Peele is the director it. So while the suspense, slow build to drama, psychological thrilling and horror aspects are all on point, the film has a lot of strong laugh out loud moments in it. Right up until the last scenes.

If you watch Key & Peele it's not surprising Peele can pull off a horror movie, because his comedy skits are often interlaced with character twerks that are completely in like with the horror genre of films.

LilRel Howery is the funniest character in the film, and does a hilarious job of mixing in some much needed comic relief during the movie. He's a scene stealer in practically every take he's involved with.

Village Pizza Margherita with Sweet Anaheim Chili hot sauce

Village Pizza Dovercourt at 759 Dovercourt Rd probably has the best pizza in this neighbourhood (Bloor and Dovercourt / Ossington / Dufferin).

It tastes real good, nice sitting area, friendly staff. The slice is 5 bucks, which may be a bit more than the norm, and probably a bit tinier than the norm, but it tastes better than the norm.

And you can use their Sweet Anaheim Chili hot sauce, which tastes great. Plus they have water you can help yourself to in glasses provided.

Mexitaco closed at Shaw and Bloor Street West

Looks like Mexitaco is done at this corner. No sign indicating renovations being done, signage all gone, and a new resto or bar spot will likely occupy it.

La La Land worth watching

This movie was packed on New Year's Day at the Varsity Theatre in Toronto. It's a good film, worth checking out, and despite it having a bit of a dream like and fairy-tale type of quality with the musical theme, it ends up being realistic while not killing the romantic edge to it with the pragmatism.
