5 Movies for Canada Day with Some Great Canuck Talent

When it come to movies, Canada has much to offer in the way of brilliance and creativity. So, in honor of Canada Day, I’ve put together a list of 5 movies linked together by a common theme — some great Canadian talent! So pop some popcorn tonight after the fireworks and sit back and enjoy a flick or two with some of the finest Canuck talent attached to it! Happy Canada Day everyone!

5. Splice – Who doesn’t love the independent and edgy Sarah Polley? She’s one stellar Canuck who gives this Sci-Fi flick some serious thespian attitude.


4. Juno – This is an academy award winning film with the indomitable and awesome Canuck actress Ellen Page.


3. Million Dollar Baby – It seems that anything Paul Haggis touches turns to Oscar gold… or millions of dollars. He’s one Canuck with some serious clout.


2. Avatar – No matter how many times I see this film, I am still blown away by its scope and beauty. James Cameron has been called a visionary and he truly is one of Canada’s most imaginative filmmakers of our time.


1. Uncle Buck – An oldie but goodie, pretty much anything with the late John Candy in it is sure to entertain.

Which one will you watch? 😀
