    NexT Short Film Festival in Bucharest Romania

    I just returned from the NexT International (Short) Film Festival (April 6th-10, 2011) in Bucharest, Romania, a city largely unknown to tourists.

Created and written by John Enbom, Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge, and Paul Rudd the show was both hilarious and tender, perfectly encaps...

    Jake Johnson Latest To Join Cast Of '21 Jump Street'

    Considering it's the kind of project that we'd normally run a mile from (namely, a big-budget remake of a 1980s TV show that no one really gives a shit about), we're curiously optimistic about "21 Jump Street." Like the show, which launched the career of Johnny Depp, the movie will focus on a group ...
