Will You Be San Diego's Next 48 Hour Film Project Winner?

Jun 14, 2013  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Remember when Jack Bauer would jump through windows and narrowly escape death in a Chinese prison right before saving the President of the United States from an assassination attempt – all within a day’s time? Yeah, the 48 Hour Film Project is kind of like that. Except, instead of Kiefer Sutherland, the heroes are a team of filmmakers. Instead of guns threatening to shoot civilians, they have camcorders in their place. And OK, instead of saving the U.S. from an attack, they're looking to save themselves a seat at the Cannes Film Festival. All this is done within a 48-hour window (see, same thing).... Read More

The Unluckiest Man in Hollywood: What You Don't Know About Superman Henry Cavill

Jun 14, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

30-year-old actor Henry Cavill is going to be seeing a rise in popularity due to his role as Superman in the upcoming Zach Snyder film Man of Steel (which is being released June 14). Though the actor popped up on radars after his work in the Showtime series The Tudors, in which he played Charles Brandon (1st Duke of Suffolk), there's nothing quite like a big-budget action film that demands skin-tight clothing and intense brooding to make a man everyone's new crush....

7 Décor Essentials for a Great Gatsby Inspired Living Room

May 11, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby has been an inspired masterpiece since its publication in 1925. Chronicling the Roaring Twenties, the story details the breakdown and dangers of getting caught up in the American Dream through its protagonist Jay Gatsby. With five film adaptations, including the most recent from Baz Luhrmann, the look of The Great Gatsby has been made to represent a fantastical version of the 1920s, from fashion to interior décor. To get your very own West Egg abode, all you really need is a select few essential pieces that will evoke the Art Deco style of the period, from the perfect glass chandelier to the right minimalistic art print....

The Story Behind The Great Gatsby Film Adaptations: Then and Now

Apr 24, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  2 Comments

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness…"


F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is possibly America's finest literary offering, chronicling the "Jazz Age" in a way that's both indicting and glamorous. Fitzgerald presents the 1920's through a soaring economy with bootleggers making a killing from prohibition and consumers creating an underground world of excess. Considering this was after WWI, it should be no surprise that the public overcompensated, turning their shock and fear to extravagant showmanship.... Read More

5 minutesIn the film Beautiful Creatures, Gatlin, South Carolina might seem like a sleepy Southern town where nothing ever happens, but beneath the surface, there are strange and magical forces, rooted in the past, that are about to re-emerge in ways the townspeople can't even begin to imagine....

Feb 8, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  2 Comments

There are plenty of reasons to get excited over a new year but for me, there's nothing better than a whole slew of brand new movies that I cannot wait to see. I look forward to disappearing within a good flick about as much as some look forward to taking their new Bugatti Veyron for a test drive on a desert road. From the Sundance Film Festival's premiers to the many award shows, the beginning of every new year is filled with anticipation. Without further ado, here are the titles (in no particular order) that I'm having a hard time waiting for.... Read More

The Super Rich, Young Financiers Shaking Up the Film Industry

Jan 29, 2013  |   Contributor: James Rothaar  |  1 Comment

There is no business like show business, especially if you are extremely wealthy and want to be a deal-making executive producer. The studios are very receptive to qualified check-writers. It is a match made in Hollywood that appears to be working well for the studios, the filmmakers, and the young, new moguls. So far, they are picking some very good projects to invest in and, surprisingly, do much more than be "dumb money."... Read More

Dec 20, 2012  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

It goes without saying that if a film is screened at Sundance, it has a very good chance at making it big. There have been many high-profile films that first started at this festival, including Reservoir Dogs, Little Miss Sunshine, Memento, The Usual Suspects, and Clerks, so I wouldn't be surprised if we have another monumental hit among the films premiering this year....

Top Movie-Themed Tours of 2012

Nov 30, 2012  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

We’ve all heard that old axiom, “Life imitates art.” And further to that, especially lately, vacations imitate the movies. Obviously not down to the plot details—at least not all the time—but more and more, travelers seem to be booking itineraries that take them to James Bond’s London, Twilight’s Washington coast, or “the Shire” as fabricated in rural New Zealand....

Sep 27, 2012  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

The TV-watching legions know Nigel Barker best from America’s Next Top Model, and most might guess that his biggest career concern of 2012 was getting hired onto The Face (the new Naomi Campbell-fronted show airing on Oxygen) after being fired from ANTM earlier this year. But the masses don’t know what makes this fashion “good guy” tick.... Read More
