    Dispatch from SXSW 2010—Three: Spiders From Mars

    Boasting two midnight movie–loving Alamo Drafthouse theaters as screening venues and having cultivated a relationship with Fantastic Fest, SXSW has always displayed a strong lineup of genre films. This year’s program leaned even more heavily towards science fiction, in general, and films dealing with space travel and alien life, in particular.

    Cop Out's Kevin Smith Calls Out Critics and Gets Slammed

    Cop Out's Kevin Smith Calls Out Critics and Gets Slammed

    Kevin Smith may be remembered not as a gifted screenwriter and not-so-great director and occasional comic relief player but as the guy who pioneered self-marketing on the internet. He was an early adopter, with movie-poop-shoot.com and other sites; his Twitter account @ThatKevinSmith logs over 1 million followers. He loves hanging out on Twitter, engaging directly with his fans. And they loyally show up to his movies. But there are only so many of them.
