Funny though how they try to pass off the Chateau Frontenac as being in Montreal

I do recall seeing Angelina Jolie at an Expos game atthe Big O

Speaking of stars at Spos games, I remember literally running into Donald Sutherland (big Spos fan) at a Cards series in the 90's

Don't forget The Fountain. Not a blockbuster but one of the worst movies of the whole list. I nearly went insane trying to get through that movie at the inlaws.

one of the reasons why you nearly went mad watching this film was probably because you went into it with the ideology of structure. Usually, in most "common" films, there's a beginning, a middle and an end. So you know what to expect. Opposing that spectrum is a film in the likes of "The Fountain". It encourages the viewer to make their own deductions and conclusions. If you will, it's like going to the museum of contemporary arts. The Fountain is NOT a movie in the commonly determined way. It's a work of art. The imagery was simply incredible in that film.

Now if you watch it a second time, keeping this in mind, you'll find yourself to enjoy it much more. Go into it thinking that you know nothing about film, that you have no expectations of structure.



Anyways, the reason why so many films are being done here is purely economics. Montreal is VERY cheap for Hollywood (well was at some point. Now the actors guild has gotten a bit more greedy...).

While it does have a huge part in it, the fact Montreal offers so many different options for locations is also a big factor. Big city look, then you have old Montreal for period movies, not far from nature for outdoor needs, etc.

The fact that the city did not rise up to prevent this from happening is a massive blemish that I fear it will not recover from.

You realise you're talking about the third installment of an absolutely horrendous concept, with mostly ghastly actors in it, right?

I knew parts of The Red Violin took place in Montreal, but I didn't realize it was actually filmed there. That's pretty cool... one of my favorite movies.

No, I usually enjoy movies of this nature. The idea was great. The reason I nearly went mad was because of the execution. I knew what they were trying to do but it took too long to tell the story and they tried too hard to be artsy. Having never heard of the movie before, I leaned over to my fiance during the film and told her what was going to happen. I kept saying in my head "I get it! Just get on with it!". The thing just wouldn't end.

The Aviator was partially shot in MTL (I believe Mels?)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) <- Brad Pitt was a regular sighting in Old MTL

The Fountain was ****ing great. The only movie that actually got to me emotionally. One fo the few that the cinematography was just mind blowing to me and that I mentioned and raved about it afterwards. So glad Brad Pitt didn't play it as originally planned.

Hate to break it to you, but that list is nothing compared to Vancouver & Toronto. When I briefly lived in Vancouver before moving to Seattle, I'd see buses, trailers and film sets everywhere especially in the summer.

Oh yeah same here. I lived in Vancouver back in 2005-06 and I lost count how many times the buses had to re-route or skip stops because movies were being filmed.

One night I was watching a Habs game at a bar when this guy came in and sat beside me. Said he was working on a movie with Ben Stiller where he's a night watchmen at a Museum and all of the exhibits come alive. Good guy. He paid for all my drinks and the Habs won that night. Good times.

In the movie Taking Lives the story is partly set in Quebec city, it's only by the second half of the movie that it staged in Montreal, during the JAZZ fest. Too bad they took french actors to play québécois cops.
