Title: Cesar Chavez Directed By: Diego Luna Starring: Michael Pen?a, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortiz, John Malkovich Screened at SXSW 2014 Diego Luna’s “Cesar Chavez” bears some weight courtesy of its true roots, but the abundance of information and lack of heart makes it feel more like a history lesson rather than a dynamic cinematic experience. Michael Peña leads as the title character, a man who decides it’s time to dedicate his life to pursuing farm workers’ rights. With the help of Dolores Huerta (Rosario Dawson), Chavez forms the United Farm Workers labor union, rouses thousands across the state of California and initiates [ Read More ]

Jimmy Kimmel is taking his show on the road again.
After past weeks in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Detroit, ABC's late-night talk host brings "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to Austin, Texas, for five programs starting Monday, March 10. The timing isn't random: It coincides with the city's popular annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival that showcases new entertainment and technology.
"It's a big part of the reason I'm going there," the friendly Kimmel tells Zap2it about the event ... adding that during a recent Austin visit, "we went to four different barbecue places, and I ate more than a full meal at each one of them. They rolled us to the airport, but I had some great stuff."
That wasn't Kimmel's first visit there, nor will it be his first time at SXSW. "It's a great town, and it's a great festival," he reflects. "I'm from Las Vegas, so I love the »
Break out your boots, because Hollywood is officially making its way down to Austin, Texas for South by Southwest! Style at SXSW is all about cool prints and color. You won't see any boring LBDs or stuffy cocktail dresses here—instead, stars like to ditch their silk gowns for a week and experiment with fun new trends. SXSW has just gotten underway so we can't crown a "best dressed" of the entire festival just yet, but here's some stars who are earning top style marks so far. Amber Heard had that newly-engaged glow when she stepped out to the 2014 Texas Film Awards in a sexy fringed dress by Ulyana Sergeenko. And Rosario Dawson arrived at the Joe premiere in a cool orange and »

So apparently, in 2007 when Warner brought out Alexander, Revisited: The Final Cut, they lied. The 2014 Alexander: The Ultimate Cut is another version of the much-edited movie, which director Oliver Stone (Wall Street Money Never Sleeps) apparently can’t let go.
Celebrating the movie’s 10th anniversary, The Ultimate Cut is 206 minutes, 31 minutes longer than the already long 175-minute original film and eight minutes shorter than that Final Cut. Hmmm
“I’ve tried throughout this process to achieve what I believe is the appropriate balance between the inner and outer journeys undertaken by this extraordinary man,” said Stone. “Free from earlier constraints [i.e. defined codes for violence and sexuality], I’ve continued to pursue this great story, and I think I have at last achieved a film that tells a story as it has never been told.”
Good to know.

It's been nearly a decade since the "Sin City" world came to life on the big screen and it's finally ready to return. Though a sequel has been in the works on and off for years, the first teaser trailer for "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" has arrived.
Several stars are returning from the first, including Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson and Mickey Rourke. The movie also has more than it's fair share of new faces, though. Among them is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, fresh off the first season of his "HitRECord on TV."
Levitt plays Johnny, a gambler who beats the wrong man at the wrong game. He has a couple interesting moments in the trailer, and looks like he's taken quite a beating.
"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is in theaters Aug. 22. »
Nine years ago I was lucky enough to get to attend an advance screening of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City. Having just read the comics, my anticipation was through the roof. I distinctly remember moving to a different position in my 9 to 5 job and I took an extended lunch just to see the film. It was one of the longest work days I had that day but it was well worth it.
Nine. Years. Later. Who knew it would take that long to have a sequel to such a groundbreaking film. I’m just happy it is happening. Things have changed. There are a change of actors for the roles of Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin – who might be a better fit), Miho and sadly, due to Michael Clarke Duncan’s passing, Manute. There is an additional character that hasn’t been in the books called Johnny played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. »

Sneak Peek the first trailer revealing footage from director Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City" comic book adaptation sequel, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For", to be released by Dimension Films, August 22, 2014.
"...it was another dark night in 'Basin City' when lovers 'Dwight' and 'Ava Lord' were reunited.
"But in 'Sin City', a reunion is never good news. And Ava has plans for 'Dwight'.
"It’s one of those hot nights, dry and windless.
"The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things.

Unlike my esteemed colleague Jen Krueger, I watched the Academy Awards all the way through on Sunday (although at the same time I was also fixing dinner, playing fetch with my cat, and incessantly checking my e-mails, and then later trying to find a position in bed so I could see but still be horizontal).
I like to watch award shows for different reasons than most people, at least if I believe the Internets. All those technical awards that everybody hates? Those are my favorites. I love to see someone who is not a celebrity recognized for his or her work. I love to see them get their moment literally in the spotlight. I imagine their mothers at home, kvelling.
When you’re in love, the whole world is Jewish.
It’s also great to see ordinary-looking people recognized, people who are not genetically blessed and then prepped by trainers, »
