Drake Drops New Song ‘Nice for What,’ Video Features Tracee Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, Other Stars (Watch)
As promised, Drake dropped a new song Friday night, a Lauryn Hill-sampling smooth groove called “Nice for What.” Along with the song came a video that features 20 famous (and kind-of famous but fabulous) women, most of them actresses or musicians: Olivia Wilde, Misty Copeland, Issa Rae, Rashida Jones, Jourdan Dunn, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, Yara Shahidi, Zoe Saldana, Letitita Wright, Bria Vinaite, Emma Roberts, Syd, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth and Victoria Lejonhjarta. All are filmed separately.

Directed by 22-year-old Toronto native Karena Evans — who also helmed Drake’s clip for “God’s Plan,” which featured him giving away $1 million to various people and organizations in need — the clip doesn’t have a plot, just Drake performing while the ladies groove.

The song samples “Ex Factor,” one of the most popular tracks from the 1999 classic “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” Drake previously sampled Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” from the same album,

Indie Film Attorney Mark Litwak on IMDb’s California Age Law

​California IMDb Age Law Contested

By Mark Litwak

Actresses often complain about age discrimination in the movie business. Even relatively young actresses claim they have experienced discrimination. Olivia Wilde was reportedly denied the role of Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in The Wolf of Wall Street when she was 28 years-old, ten years DiCaprio’s junior, with the role given to Margot Robbie who was only 23. [1]

IMDb Listing of Olivia Wilde

It is not always easy to determine the age of an actor by their appearance at a time when plastic surgery is ubiquitous. One frequently used source to determine an actor’s age is IMDb.com and its professional version, IMDb pro.com, which are widely used for casting in the entertainment industry. Consequently, many actors do not want to reveal their true age on their IMDb profiles because they believe it may put them at a competitive disadvantage.

Best Movies by American Directors 35 or Under, from ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Training Day’

Best Movies by American Directors 35 or Under, from ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Training Day’
Among the many impressive numbers associated with “Black Panther” is the director’s age. At just 31, Ryan Coogler has directed an historic, record-breaking blockbuster whose achievements will be studied for years by scholars and pop culture dabblers alike. He follows in the footsteps of such wunderkinds as Steven Spielberg and Orson Welles, who were respectively 28 (“Jaws”) and 25 (“Citizen Kane”) when they first helmed movies that were to become iconic cinema classics.

Coogler’s not the only young filmmaker to leave a mark at an early age in recent years. Thus, we present to you our ranking of the 25 best movies from 2000 to the present from filmmakers 35 and under. (Sorry, Jason Reitman and Xavier Dolan: you’re Canadian.) To keep the list manageable, we stuck to homegrown Americans only, and picked our favorite film from each early oeuvre. (If you disagree, feel free to share alternatives in the comments.

SXSW Film Review: ‘A Vigilante’

SXSW Film Review: ‘A Vigilante’
In one of the many scenes of churning fear and rage that make up “A Vigilante,” Sadie (Olivia Wilde), a crime-fighting desperado in upstate New York, sits in the living room of a respectable-looking middle-aged man and explains to him how things are going to be. She’s wearing a disguise — she has given herself the spirit-gum wrinkles and fuddy-duddy clothing of a primly officious lawyer — but there’s nothing concealed about her words. With an air of ice-cold calm, she orders the man to sign over three-quarters of his savings and quit his finance job, and to leave the home he’s sitting in forever. The movie then cuts to the end of the episode, when he’s a bloody mess, skulking out of the house with his life and dignity and future in tatters.

The man is a domestic abuser; Sadie has arrived to save — and liberate — his wife,

A Vigilante Review [SXSW 2018]

A Vigilante is one bitter taste of gender-fueled revenge that doesn’t immediately kick-you-in-the-teeth, yet still packs its punches in small but measured doses. I applaud the film Sarah Daggar-Nickson created versus the one preconceptions made me assume. Women protagonists in these positions are usually subjected to unspeakably demeaning atrocities (shown to viewers) – hence why “rape revenge” is an entire subgenre – but Nickson doesn’t require such instigation.

Enter a grieving female forced into action, failed by systems and teachings ingrained in our societal constructs that make victims out of the innocent. You’ll get your revenge here, but more importantly, the message that comes along with it. Harrowingly doled out, bloody-knuckled and raw as hell.

This isn’t I Spit On Your Grave. Nickson’s “hero” survives a hauntingly attainable catalyst that leads to salvation for many more current and would-be casualties. Cinematography and direction stress what’s most important,

The first trailer has been released online and it was really quite moving. It didn't hurt that the trailer includes the song "The Funeral" by Band of Horses. I love that song and it fits perfectly with this trailer. 

Sometimes I like sentimental films about life because sometimes I'm just a sentimental guy.
