The parties at this year's LA Film Fest 2013 are just cooking up, so we thought we start off you all with a little mini-photo tour appetizer. We're heading to the roof of the West Garage at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, California and going into the exclusive Filmmaker Lounge to show you a few notable sights. Drinks, computers, bowls of free nutrition bars and conversations galore - let's mingle film fans!
Seems to be the right place! (Where can I get one of those gobo's with my name!)
Isn't this how the first "Tron" started? (Free computers rule!)

We’re keeping the capsulated review train going with more insight into the films at this years LA Film Fest 2013 via Jason and Michael. Today’s crop sees good and bad in doc land along with some Beyond fare to boot. Honest in film critique – here’s the skinny!
"The New Black" – A startling multi-layered documentary. Born out of the repossession of gay rights thru Prop-8 in California, Yoruba Richen, the film’s director, has created a complex portrait of the fight for gay rights in America as exemplified by the Prop-6 in Maryland. It also to...

Day 1 at LA Film Fest 2013 and we’re already cooking with movie review gas! Here are a handful of our first wave of capsulated reviews – both good and bad – from both Jason and Michael Coleman to help fest goers make their choices a pinch more educated. Check them out below!
"In A World" – Effective most when in full bittersweet romantic mode, Lake Bell’s writing and directing debut is a cute flick amidst a tad fluffy. Bell herself comes off much like Kristen Wiig, funny and charming in an odd and unique way. The comedy is unfortunately light, but does come ...

For those of us who grew up in the 80’s, the name Zach Galligan is a recognizable one. Having made a big splash in films like "Gremlins" and "Waxwork," Galligan was the quintessential leading man – good looking, charismatic and truly talented. Along the way he also made memorable turns in shows like "Star Trek: Voyager" and "Law & Order Criminal Intent" (going toe-to-toe with Vincent D’Onofrio no less!), but ultimately turned teacher helming acting classes affiliated with Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. His most recent role sees the actor once again taking on the horror genre, this time...

A far as comedy goes, I’ve never been against the broader strokes of hilarity in film. Over-the-top gags, a vaudeville vibe and grandiose farce can provide great laughs that simple comedy may not have the gumption to attempt. Unfortunately, in his new film "I’m So Excited," normally masterful director Pedro Almodovar forgets to add one thing to his bawdy comedy – the funny.
When an early accident leaves the undercarriage of Peninsula flight 2549 in turmoil, strange things begin to occur on the doomed trip. Everyone in economy class is drugged into a deep sleep, those left in business cl...

What if you went on vacation, woke up and found yourself trapped behind a wall? Not a blockage of the mind or baggage from unsettled past relationships, but an actual invisible but tangible wall? Such is the plight of the lead female character in the lush looking German import "The Wall," a strange yet sweeping tale that feels like Merchant-Ivory meets David Lynch – unique indeed.
Looking for a weekend getaway, an unnamed woman heads out with her friends Hugo and Louise and their trusty dog Lynx to a lodge in the gorgeous Austrian mountains. But upon awaking the next morning, she sees s...

Potential is usually a good start. When he first came on the scene, Zach Snyder seemed to have all the makings of a director who would achieve greatness. Problem is that almost every outing he’s helmed has shown that the eye candy director has a knack for creating killer sequences, but falls short on the full-length feature film scale. In "Dawn of the Dead" the first ten minutes all but eclipse the rest of the film, "300" features battle sequences that squander the dull scenes of happenings at home, "Watchmen" begins with powerful picture-esk potential the film can’t live up to and even ...
