    SXSW Review: VHS Doc 'Rewind This!' Is An Affectionate Tribute To A Bygone Era

    DVDs are filling up bargain bins everywhere, Blu-ray never really took off the way it was supposed to and digital streaming and downloads will soon usurp all physical media for film the way it has for the music industry.

    "Defiance," the upcoming television series/transmedia event from Syfy, seems like the perfect project for SXSW, a mix of narrative boundary-pushing and technology right on line between hip and geeky.

    Video: Gillian Jacobs & Ken Marino On Why ‘Milo’ Is Just “Good Butt Fun”

    Unfortunately, when we talked to Ken Marino at SXSW earlier this week, the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign had not yet been announced, so there’s no word yet on whether Vinnie Van Lowe will return for the movie, already greenlit for this summer.

    SXSW Review: 'I Give It A Year' Is A Woefully Inept Deconstruction Of Romantic Comedies
