Today is the centennial of the infamous Beat era writer William S Burroughs and I've been thinking about him lately due to Philip Seymour Hoffman's death via heroin (why is it that I always start stringing the celebrity junkies together when they die? Is it because there are so damn tragic many of them?) but mostly because I was really gripped by Ben Foster's portrayal of him in Kill Your Darlings, a problematic movie about guys that weren't nearly as palatable in real life (despite the movie being about murder) that had a great moment here and there. Of course the movie wasn't really about Burroughs but about Lucien Carr's (Dane Dehaan) murder of his lover (Michael C Hall). From time to time I have wondered why we've had no straight up biopic about Burroughs (Keifer Sutherland is the only other actor I can think of that's played »

It's been awhile since last we had a good horror/sci-fi hybrid flick, but given what we're hearing about the upcoming Animus, that could be exactly what's on the agenda. Read on for the first details and possible casting news.
The Thomas Konkle-written script fixes on space-journeying scientists who, on the way back from investigating some far-off moons, are hit by micrometeorites.
One of the scientists is infected, and it’s not long before another side of him comes out – threatening the family– killing the men, while dominating and impregnating the women. It’s up to the rest of the guys on the ship to kill the infected man – and thus, the monster within – before the evolved contagion makes it to Earth.
Commercials director Konkle is also directing. More as we get it!

Available via Netflix Watch Instantly as of late December, last weekend I finally got the chance to check out writer/director Joe Swanberg's romantic comedy Drinking Buddies. I should disclaim that it's near impossible for me to be objective when talking about Swanberg given that he's a fellow Southern Illinois University alum and few things make me prouder than a Saluki film student enjoying success in the industry. That out of the way, I enjoyed the heck out of Drinking Buddies. Much has been made of the film's stellar cast and I won't try and dispute those claims at all. As someone who has never watched a minute of Fox's New Girl, I loved Jake Johnson's turn in the pic and I bought he and Olivia Wilde's romantic chemistry hook, line, and sinker. As for Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston? Lets just say that I love each »
