9 Awesome Golf Characters in Film We Would Love to Tee Off With

Apr 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

To the golf novice, flicks centered around the sport may not seem like a very exciting cornerstone of film. But when you actually start listing them in your mind, you begin to realize just how many amazing characters have been created over the years (either based in reality or completely fabricated and unrealistic —- looking at you Happy Gilmore).

Costume Designer Judianna Makovsky Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes With Captain America

Nov 21, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When I called Judianna Makovsky for a chat, Gary Ross happened to be on the other line — no big deal. Nominated for three Oscars, the costume designer has had a long run in the movie business without ever limiting herself to any one specific genre. Sure, she's worked with Ross several times (from 1988's Big to 2003's Seabiscuit to their most recent Peter Pan project), but that's because her decision to work on a film is hugely influenced by the people backing it.

11 Ways to Set Up a Killer Luxury Picnic, From Flower Arrangements to Movie Projectors

Mar 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in the BBC miniseries Parade's End, where a group of upper class people (including Benedict Cumberbatch, of course) have a lavish picnic in the English countryside, surrounded by picturesque rolling hills. Unlike the picnics you may remember as a child, where your parents laid out a blanket and pulled simply prepared snacks from a wicker basket, this picnic involved a full dining room table with chairs and place settings.

Wayne Kramer is one of the greatest guitarists alive (just ask Rolling Stone) and he is doing everything he can to use that talent to leave the world a little better off than he found it. Many will know the 65 year old as the co-founder of the '60s Detroit rock group MC5 (Motor City 5), a huge influence on the future of punk rock and heavy metal.

Recreate the Decadent Courtesan au Chocolate Dessert from The Grand Budapest Hotel

Mar 14, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The Grand Budapest Hotel is here and it's amazing! Not only does it mark a huge growth for Wes Anderson as a director and writer, the cast is unbelievable (even by Anderson standards) and the intricate plot is held together by delicious pastries. Not even joking a little bit on that last one.

Inside the World of Divergent: Stars Chat About Auditions, Training, Fears & Favorite Scenes

Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.

Meet the Real Wolf of Wall Street Superyacht Built for Coco Chanel

Jan 21, 2014  |   Contributor: Jared Paul Stern

The yachting disaster is one of the most dramatic scenes in Martin Scorsese’s blockbuster The Wolf of Wall Street, and like many of the tales in the Leonardo DiCaprio flick, it’s based on a true story. In real life, predatory tycoon Jordan Belfort bought a yacht in 1993 called Big Eagle and renamed her Nadine, after his English-born second wife.

Sony's 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector Is Totally Worth the $40k Price Tag

Jan 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There were a lot of cool things at this year's CES, but my favorite is probably Sony's new 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector. Unlike other projectors, this one doesn't have to be mounted on the ceiling or anywhere else far back from the surface area it's projecting upon. As anyone who has ever stood up in front of one of those models knows, that setup isn't necessarily ideal — well, not unless you really like making shadow puppets.

Jan 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

So much happened in 2013, but my favorite stories all revolve around the art world. From iconic singers finally releasing an autobiography (it's about time, Morrissey!) to Marina Abramović making it big in mainstream culture, it has been a pretty full year. Here are some of my favorite art stories to have come up (not all of them are positive, by the way) and though many go unmentioned, that's where you come in to share your favorites!
