Dinner and movies go together as well as international waters and underground cat fighting rings. Which doesn’t really make sense, if you think about it, what with movies being all attention grabbing and stuff, and dinner requiring attention in order to ensure food reaching mouth/not choking to death. But thankfully for both of us, you don’t have to think about it, because Sundance pays me to, so one of those darned thinkin’ headaches averted.

What are people saying about HOWL?

What are people saying about HOWL?

Seems like James Franco has been all over the place in the last few days, talking about, among other things, HOWL, the new film by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman in which the actor stars as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Here he is discussing his love of poetry with Vanity Fair. There he is explaining his love of soap operas to New York magazine.

Baby mama drama in AWAY WE GO

Baby mama drama in AWAY WE GO

It’s an interesting enough starting point: What do two people with only vague ambitions and low funds (low enough to have a cardboard window in their dilapidated trailer but not low enough, oddly, to fly all around the US and Canada) do when they discover they’re having a baby in a town where they no longer know anyone? Road trip! Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) go from Phoenix to Madison to Montreal to Miami to visit one wacky friend after another, from comically slutty Allison Janney to comically new age-y Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Who doesn’t love the Netflix “watch instantly” option? You thought you had it good when you didn’t have to leave your house to rent a movie.
