As planned, the third annual Los Cabos International Film Festival will be held November 12-16, marking not only an artistic endeavor, but Cabos' resilience.

Director of New Film St. Vincent Hilariously Explains How He Got Bill Murray To Do the Film

Sep 30, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  4 Comments

At the San Diego Film Festival last weekend, Theodore Melfi gave one of the best Q&A's to ever be given, sharing with the audience the details of how he nabbed the elusive Bill Murray for St. Vincent—his debut feature film that only took him around four weeks to write. While he chatted about the origins of the story (it's inspired by members of his own family, including his young daughter) and sang the praises of the entire cast (especially Melissa McCarthy), the big stories of the night revolved around Murray.

The San Diego Film Festival is officially over after filling five days full of over 100 flicks, many of which will definitely be Oscar contenders this year. Though the festival has actually been around since 2001, it's only been within the past few years that it's really started to find its footing and this year's event had the best line-up yet. Check out the event's three biggest films below, the ones that exceeded our expectations (like The Imitation Game and St. Vincent) and the one that left us feelin... Read More

The Drop Is Worth the Film Festival Hype & So Much More

Sep 12, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

With every movie he does, Tom Hardy keeps showing just how dang good he is. Who else could have pulled off Locke?(A movie in which his character was the only one you saw and spent the entire movie making phone calls while driving on a freeway.) And I'm still in awe of his performance in&a...

Hamilton Leithauser Talks Post-Walkmen Black Hours, His Writing Process, the Coen Brothers & Drunk Cross-Eyed Germans

Sep 3, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

High school marked my musical awakening, a time when I started to really construct my own identity outside of my mom's water-damaged Cat Stevens records, my dad's old Johnny Cash, and the popular boy bands of the early 1990s (I'll never live that down). It was then I discovered my affinity for Nick Cave's poetic brutality, Morrissey's dramatic flair, Billy Bragg's political fortitude, and of course, The Walkmen's confident frontman Hamilton Leithauser who made every note seem essential.

Sep 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

If you fancy yourself a hardcore science-fiction fan and have George Takei's Twitter account as your homepage, you're going to love MB&F's MusicMachine 2 (MM2), which was made by Reuge. Taking on the shape of a spacecraft, the fancy Swiss music box plays songs from Star Wars, Star Trek, and even the The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. If this sounds familiar, you may remember reading about Reuge's Musical Starship last year, which took on a much different shape.

O Captain! My Captain! Robin Williams Will Be Missed

Aug 11, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Robin Williams has meant so much to so many people and we're absolutely gutted by the loss. The news of his death has rolled across the world rapidly, popping up on every news outlet and text message, and it's one that no one was prepared for. The 63-year-old lifted us up and made us all lighter the more we laughed, and the thought that he was weighed down with his own sadness breaks our hearts. From granting our wishes and encouraging the poet within us to taking us through the afterlife and being the best fake British nanny ever, Williams did everything with the same childlike glee that he brought to Hook. He was insane in the best of ways and he'll be missed.

Jul 24, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The first official trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey finally hit the Internet today after premiering on Today, and the world was never the same.

20,000 Days on Earth Investigates Nick Cave's Psyche & Boldly Redefines the Music Documentary Genre

Jul 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in 20,000 Days on Earth in which Nick Cave chauffeurs Kylie Minogue around Brighton in a black 1980s Jaguar XJ as she reflects back on having first met him. The front passenger seat is left open for us, the audience, as an invitation into a music documentary that's not quite real. In fact, everything you see has been constructed and the car you're in is more like a dream. Though the ambitious film is artistically pieced together and wrapped in fiction by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard—and co-written by Cave himself—it's actually the most beautifully honest reflection of art's transformative power you may ever see.

Hang Out With Han Solo & Chewbacca By Winning a Role in Star Wars: Episode VII

Jul 17, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

It seems like the newest trend is for hugely anticipated film and television programs to offer fans a chance to win an on-camera role by donating to a good cause—either to fund the project itself or to raise money for charity. Even author George R.R. Martin got into it when he offered Game of Thrones fans the opportunity to win a spot in his upcoming A Song of Ice and Fire novel by donating to The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in New Mexico. And now, ladies and gentleman, you have the chance to be cast in the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII

Colin Hanks Reveals What Makes Fargo Brilliant, Acting Through Frostbite & Finding the Funny Side

Jun 2, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff  |  1 Comment

Sweet-faced Colin Hanks stars in his toughest role yet in Fargo, the original FX adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film. Rather than attempt a remake, writer Noah Hawley reinvents Fargo with an all-new crime story featuring a new case and new characters — all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA winner Martin Freeman (SherlockThe Hobbit).
