Short film: The nightmare of living with a crappy roommate

Director Alexander Engel sent us his short This Is It—a 3-minute look into the daily life of roommates with a dialog entirely constructed with questions. It is funny because this is really it, this is exactly how it is. My advice: Don't live with a roommate. Try to avoid it at all costs because all roommates suck at… » 12/15/14 10:02pm Monday 10:02pm

Why Jackie Chan movies are so much fun to watch

Veronica Lake! All these stars helped popularize the dark genre, but this black-and-white was a affectionately silly spoof, with a… » 8/28/14 8:00pm 8/28/14 8:00pm
