By the looks of it, the Tribeca Film Festival might finally be growing out of their awkward teenage phase and moving into a new era where the nab more than just Sundance and SXSW festival rejects. Artistic Director Frederic Boyer has managed to nab some noteworthy American indie projects such as Lou Howe’s Gabriel (see pic above), Keith Miller’s Five Star, Adam Rapp’s Loitering with Intent, and Tristan Patterson’s Electric Slide.
On the docu front, we’ve got the latest from the likes of notable documentarians Marshall Curry and Jessica Yu. Think Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Round meets child solider movie for Curry’s awesomely titled Point and Shoot — where the Libyan rebel army take hold of Curry’s subject.

George Strait brought country music to Los Angeles on Saturday night with his crowd-pleasing The Cowboy Rides Away tour -- which he's said will be his last formal tour -- before a wildly enthusiastic audience that included Duck Dynasty's Willie and Korie Robertson. Not exactly a mecca of country music, the City of Angels has but one country music station on the FM dial, but you wouldn't know it based on the energy at the packed Staples Center (who knew so many Southern Californians owned cowboy hats?). Indeed, the 61-year-old singer was given a rousing welcome in downtown L.

Duck Dynasty is back … and as hairy as ever!
The fifth season kicked off Wednesday with the return of Rebecca, Willie and Korie’s exchange-student-turned-daughter who spent the last two years interning in the fashion industry in the City of Angels.

Korie was planning a surprise party for everyone other than Si, who spent the episode infecting Miss Kay with the bird flu. Yes, the bird flu. The upside: Sick Si loves watching every Air Bud ever made »

Academy ballots have been signed, sealed and delivered. What to see over the next few days to quell your anticipation for the Oscar nominations on Wednesday? Indies galore, two robust expansions and a big-budget bomb await your eyeballs in theaters this weekend. Spike Jonze didn't land a DGA nomination this week for his earnest and uncynical sci-fi romance "Her," but don't count this one out of the races. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as a lonely greeting card scribe who falls for his operating system (Scarlett Johansson), the critics' darling nabbed both WGA and PGA nominations. Though warmer and more accessible than his brainy "Being John Malkovich" or "Adaptation," Jonze is as punk and provocative as ever, setting this believable cyber romance in a not-too-distant-future neo-Los Angeles -- artfully designed by Kk Barrett from pieces of La and Shanghai -- with indie musicians Arcade Fire and Owen Pallett supplying the score.

Although my three days as a glorified extra on the set of Big Ass Spider! were indeed grueling and it turns out I'm onscreen for just a blink-and-you'll-miss-it blip, it was fun. I just love being on set. Not only that, on Big Ass Spider! I was among friends.
I'd met the hero of whole shebang, Greg Grunberg, a number of times from the interview circuit when I worked for the Syfy Channel and covered "Heroes" endlessly. I made a new Bff in Lombardo Boyar, who is, in the film, my savior. So, in spite of driving the dreaded 405 freeway home each evening in peak traffic, covered in syrup and caked with dirt, every day was pure fun. »

In a brief chat with Red Carpet TV, Luke Evans opens up a little about the upcoming reboot of The Crow. He wisely points out that this isn’t a remake of the Brandon Lee film, which told one particular story, but rather a new adaptation of the comic book. That puts this film in a similar category to the difference between Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone and Dredd, last year’s fresh take starring Karl Urban. They didn’t tell the same story because, thankfully, that comic book universe is bigger than just one story.
Check out what else he has to say about The Crow:
This will be the first adaptation of The Crow to actually make it to theaters since 1996′s The Crow 2: City of Angels- the forgettable sequel to Brandon Lee’s 1994 film. The 1994 production became notorious when Lee, the son of Bruce Lee, »

In a week of few and dismal new releases (we're looking at you, Runner Runner) we give you one movie worth your while... Big Ass Spider! This Sharknado-esque schlockfest has the City of Angels under attack from a giant spider that resulted from a military experiment gone wrong that crawls out of a hospital morgue and onto the city streets. Growing bigger by the moment, it takes out the U.S. Bank tower and can cocoon humans in mere seconds (or tear them apart, either way). Fortunately Greg Grunberg (Heroes) is around to save the day as a love-starved bug man who seems to have a way of knowing exactly what's going on in that arachnid's 10-foot head. After a season of Oscar bait and the theatrical doldrums of January/February upon us, grab a 12-pack and some friends for a...
