    Coastal LA In Photos

    Today I had the pleasure of spending my last day in Los Angeles completely offline, and did so by walking along the ocean from Santa Monica to Manhattan Beach. And I have to say it doesn't get much better than that walk mixed with iPod+coffee+cigarettes+camera, the latter of which resulted in the fo...

    REVIEW | A Familiar Can of "Kick Ass"

    The prevalence of superhero movies at the multiplexes has made them ripe for self-reflection. On the surface, Matthew Vaughn's "Kick-Ass" fulfills that opportunity. Adapted from Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.'s 2008 comic book mini-series, which focuses on a nerdy high school student named Dave (U...

    #SXSW Perfect Venue for Kick-Ass

    SXSW has a casual young, male vibe. At the Kick-Ass opener, the fest's Janet Pierson and director Matthew Vaughn were both wearing jeans and sneakers. So it makes sense SXSW was perfect venue for Kick-Ass, which has a primarily young male --and less female-- appeal. It's a nasty hard-R super-hero sp...

    Green Zone: New Clip

    It doesn't surprise me that Green Zone is being targeted as a leftie movie. That's because the film--from Brit Paul Greengrass--wears its politics on its sleeve. To me, the film bears the ring of truth, and made me fighting mad. But politics aside, the exhilarating filmmaking alone makes it a must-s...

    Time Cover Boy Hanks' The Pacific Launches Sunday on HBO

    I confess: I am at SXSW wishing I had time to watch the DVDs for The Pacific that HBO delivered the day I left town. At $200 million (more than Rome), the ten-part series is the most expensive HBO has ever made, and earned Tom Hanks the cover of Time (like HBO, a Time Warner company). It's the flip ...

    SXSW Preview: Rodriguez, Kick-Ass, Predators

    Gold Film/Interactive Badge and packet of party tickets in hand, I'm plugged into a power strip in the main courtyard at the Austin Convention Center. (The wi-fi sucks.) On my way downtown, I drove the wrong way onto several one-way streets, including a train track. I am safely parked in the convent...
