You Could Win Passes to E3 2016 With Loot Crate

18 May 2016 1:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Has it been your dream to go to E3 but can't qualify because you're not part of the video game industry?  Well Loot Crate is giving you the opportunity of a lifetime!  Come inside for full details!

Last year was my first time hitting the floor of E3.  It had always been a life-goal of mine to make it to video game's biggest expo.  Being there was overwhelming, yet envigorating! Now it's time for other people to experience it, thanks to Loot Crate.

In a partnership with the Esa, Loot Crate is giving away consumer passes for 20 lucky Loot Gaming subscribers.  This is an astounding development, as the E3 floor isn't open to the public. 

How can you win?  It's actually pretty easy.  Anyone who is already a Loot Gaming subscriber is already entered.  For those of you who aren't, though.  You have until May 27 to sign up, with the »

Agnès Varda Begins New Documentary; Hong Sang-soo Shooting In Cannes with Isabelle Huppert

16 May 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Word of a new Agnès Varda project is hardly commonplace — it’s sometimes unclear if she’s even still working — so this tentative announcement gets more attention than most others. Said project, per Variety, is “a celebration of images, still and moving, and the way they are shown, shared and exhibited,” and likely an autobiographical celebration at that: as co-directed by the Bansky-like French photographer Jr, the picture “will focus on faces, encounters, huge images related to people and mostly the growth of an unlikely friendship between a 33 year old youngster and an 88 year old lady.” (I’ll save you the Wikipedia search and mental arithmetic by noting that, yes, Jr is 33 and Varda is 88.)

Varda is immediately forthcoming about the project, saying, “As my life draws to a close, I find myself wanting to see ever more faces, to film or photograph them, to keep them in images if not in my memory. »

Steven Spielberg's go-to cinematographer Janusz Kaminski is set to direct a film based on the life of award-winning author Jerzy Kosinski entitled "The Rabbit Garden".

Jamie Dawson penned the script about the talented but troubled Kosinski, Holocaust survivor who wrote works such as "The Painted Bird" and "Being There" but was also plagued with allegations of plagiarism and sex-addiction.

Production is set to commence next year. Kaminski's latest collaboration with Spielberg, "The Bfg," has its world premiere at Cannes this week.

Review: Beyonce's amazing truthbomb turns emotional lemons into 'Lemonade'

24 April 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is it okay for a critic to say, “I respect this work of art, and I am not fully qualified to speak to the profundity of the text?” Because that’s where I find myself with Beyonce’s Lemonade, a remarkable visual album that she released under a cloak of complete secrecy last night. HBO made the one-hour program available twice on their channel during their free-preview-weekend, and it was also available for 24 hours via HBO Now, the app that I have. I don’t have cable, and I don’t like cable. I want the right to consume things a la carte, and anything I can do to support that media model, I do. I will pay providers for content, but I want to do it the way I want to do it. Because it was on HBO Now, I’ve been able to watch the film repeatedly, stopping it, »

‘Arrow’ Bosses and Star Discuss That Shocking Death: ‘We Knew That It Would Enrage a Lot of People’

6 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warning: This post contains spoilers for “Arrow” Season 4, Episode 18, titled “Eleven-Fifty-Nine.” Do not read on unless you’ve watched the April 6 episode.

After almost an entire season of build-up, tonight’s “Arrow” finally revealed which team member dies and ends up in the grave that was introduced in the Season 4 premiere: Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), aka Black Canary — a character that many comic book fans likely thought was safe, given Black Canary’s iconic status in the DC Comics universe.

Executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle, along with Cassidy and her co-star Paul Blackthorne (who plays Laurel’s father, Quentin Lance), sat down with reporters earlier this week to discuss the shocking events of the episode, which saw a newly escaped Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), stab Laurel as payback for her father’s earlier betrayal. After it seemed like doctors had managed to stabilize Laurel at the hospital, she »

The Last Detail | Blu-ray Review

8 March 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hal Ashby remains one of the most curious auteurs to rise out of the prosperous 1970s American studio era, his titles maintaining an indelible mark on the glorious period of filmmaking, ranging from 1971’s Harold & Maude to 1979’s Being There. The 1980s weren’t quite as kind, and Ashby, like a passel of other mavericks of the decade (Altman comes immediately to mind), stumbled into the age of excess, and in this particular case, eventually oblivion. On the surface, most of Ashby’s films promise to be comedies, quirky or otherwise, but he eventually reveals those expectations to be a superficial veneer, his characters mostly downtrodden sorts who are either bitterly disillusioned or resigned to their own dysthymic worldview. One of his greatest achievements was his third effort, 1973’s The Last Detail, pairing Ashby with another icon of the era, Jack Nicholson, himself in the midst of his own golden »
