    LAFF 2007: Low-Rent, High Yield

    Have you ever seen a movie that you really liked, but realized you couldn't recommend it to anybody you know because they'll probably all hate it? I've been pegged as a contrarian before, but a lot of the time I'm genuinely surprised when people can...

    LAFF 2007: Just Joshin'

    If you're going to talk during a movie, really do it. I'm talking like they do at the Magic Johnson theater. Yell out something like, "Oh no you didn't!" or "Bitch, don't go in there!" That can be fun. DON'T sit down beside me, and spend the movie m...

    LAFF 2007: Rural Places Are Scary

    Remember in the movie version of Silent Hill, how the haunted town was a rural coal-mining community where coal fires burned non-stop underground? That was partially inspired by Centralia, Pennsylvania, subject of Chris Perkel and Georgie Roland's do...

    LAFF 2007: Depressed Dudes

    Shane West needs to shut his friends up. Just as a rule of thumb, actors -- if you're starring in a movie, and want people to like it, don't reserve an entire row of seats in the theater for people who are going to annoy the audience. Their enjoymen...

    LAFF 2007: Chasing Ghosts and Iranians

    I think I may finally be getting the hang of this festival schedule. Four shows today, and I never felt close to collapsing from tiredness. Perhaps it was the concession food that kept me going. Speaking of which, doesn't it seem totally wrong that a...
