Keep the Change (1992 TV Movie)
“It is always exited to see what resonates most with the audience, and this year both the narrative and documentary winners represent smart filmmaking and impactful storytelling,” said Tribeca Film Festival’s Paula Weinstein. “On behalf of the Tribeca team, we congratulate ‘The Divine Order’ and ‘Hondros’ as the 2017 Audience Award winners, and hope moviegoers worldwide get to experience these powerful films.”

Petra Volpe wrote and directed “The Divine Order,” a period piece about the Swiss suffragette movement. “Hondros,” which was co-written and directed by Greg Campbell, follows the war photographer Chris Hondros from the Kosovo War in 1999 until his
Through interviews with friends and employees (most of her friends were employees), “Whitney: Can I Be Me” filmmakers Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal take a strong stand, connecting the dots between a number of pivotal moments in Houston’s life that led to her heartbreaking decline. Namely: Her controlling parents, the night she was booed
So, that’s what’s progressive and good about “Dabka.” Unfortunately, best intentions aside, the film itself is a rowdy, often abrasive account of how a lone Canadian journalist had the chutzpah to actually travel to Somalia and investigate a situation that others were to skittish to cover.
The awards were presented on Thursday evening, but best narrative short winner Kaveh Mazaheri of Retouch was unable to secure a visa to travel from Iran due to President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
"The reason that I am not there is because of Mr. Trump’s fascinating decisions, and as the least consequence, I and my crew couldn’t get a U.S. visa and now I have to talk to you via this video," said Mazaheri. "I am delighted that the first Tribeca award for an Iranian short film is awarded to my...
And yet, going deep is what makes “Sweet Virginia” great — heck, more than great. As translated to screen by director Jamie M. Dagg (whose sure hand and smart changes elevate things considerably), Benjamin and Paul China’s script yields one of the gnarliest and most unsettling movies we’re likely to get this year. Set
It’s a simple grift, and one that’s never played for titillation: Erica uses her jailbait charms to
The post Cool Stuff: ‘Home Alone’ Inspired Poster For ‘Angels With Filthy Souls’ appeared first on /Film.
For those who have never worked in a restaurant for one single day in their lives, or for those who are completely oblivious to the every day work obstacles of waiters and waitresses, we have laid out 21 problems only waiting staff will understand. To normal folks, breaking change for a large bill seems easy and not such a big deal … until you throw in a full section of irate tables who all need something at the same time.
Home Alone plays on the big screen at the Tivoli midnights this weekend as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’ series. The 1990 comedy smash was John Hughes’s last significant contribution to pop culture. Hughes’s script was his usual dose of upper/middle-class discomfort combined with a Rube Goldberg meets Ferris Bueller selection of traps and low-brow cunning that held together better than a movie set at Christmas had any right to. And its young hero — the courageous home commando Kevin McAllister, played with gusto by the subsequently doomed Macaulay Culkin, is hilarious in his mission to protect his home from the “wet bandits” after being forgotten by his vacationing family.
What is best about Home Alone is its sense of fun. The plot really makes little sense. How does a family not notice they have an extra plane ticket or that a sibling is missing?
The statement came near the end of a concert at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand. Williams Jr.'s comments were first reported in a review by Des Moines Register reporter Joe Lawler.
According to Lawler, the show was relatively free of politics until the end, when Williams Jr. made the following claims: "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!"
The comments were apparently met with applause and loud cheers.
Williams Jr. made waves in October 2011, when he appeared on "Fox and Friends" and likened the president to Hitler.
That statement resulted in Espn yanking Williams Jr.'s opening song from "Monday Night Football," where the country star's song had played for over two decades.

If you ask most people to name which games terrified them when they were growing up, you’d undoubtedly get a list of such horrific classics as Resident Evil, Dino Crisis or perhaps Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker. None of these games had the ability to make me jump out of my skin as much as a single a Mega Drive (or Sega Genesis if you’re reading this in the U.S) cartridge based on a family friendly film from 1990. For some reason, a video game based on Home Alone – the classic Christmas comedy starring Macaulay Culkin – had me on the edge of my seat and scared shitless.
It might seem hard to believe, but Home Alone made for a surprisingly suspenseful video game, which was also completely unlike any other film-to-game conversion of the time. While so many movies were quickly
