Dakota Fanning Brings Coraline to Life

Dakota Fanning When Dakota Fanning walks into a room, your first impression is that she is just your average, fourteen-year-old girl, not an A-list movie star with a couple dozen credits on her resume.

The Education of Fred Durst & Jason Ritter

With my family residing in Jacksonville, Florida, I have heard about Fred Durst for many years now. Ever since he formed the band Limp Bizkit in 1994, Durst has made his hometown incredibly proud. Jacksonville is the polar opposite of Los Angeles or NYC. “Traffic” entails 5 cars on the road. Restaurants are never full and 9-5 jobs are the norm.

Inside The Office: From The Editors’ Point of View

In a nondescript warehouse section of Van Nuys, far north of the chaos of Ventura Boulevard, the stages and offices for one of TV’s funniest shows sit scattered on a small lot which ironically doesn’t seem to garner a great deal of attention considering its otherwise lite industrial surroundings.

Walking Down Revolutionary Road with Michael Shannon

Winter in Los Angeles usually comes with at least three things: holiday cheer, complaints of 55 degree weather and over-hyped films. Revolutionary Road may not tickle your holiday funny bone or particularly make you feel warmer this winter. However, it is one film that not only lives up to its hype, this must-see novel-turned-film beautifully reminds us why movies were ever made and why we pay 12 dollars to see them. Director Sam…
