Superbad is a movie about sex, drugs, under-age drinking, but above all else, it's about friendship.

The three main actors, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are pants down hilarious. I cannot recall the last time I laughed so much during a movie or an interview.

7 Questions with <i>Trainspotting</i> Director Danny Boyle

Director Danny Boyle has covered it all: druggies in Trainspotting, enlightenment in Millions, zombies in 28 Days Later and in his latest cinematic work he tackles astronauts venturing to the sun in Sunshine.

Boyle has long been one of my favorite directors, always tackling gritty subjects, loading his movies up with smart dialog, the big screen always full of surprises. He is a fearless director, never afraid to try something new.

If you have never seen any of Danny Boyle's flicks, here’s a list of my faves.

A Night at the Drive-In

Greetings blog peepers,

I know I should be recovering from a hangover after party-ing BIGTIME with the stars of fanfest. However, I wanted to share my account of a night at the drive-in.

The drive-in cinema is the only place where the two greatest icons of the 20th century, the car and the motion picture, come together. Under dark skies and night stars, you get to enjoy a movie in the comfort of your car. WOW.
There were no drive-ins where I grew up in the U.K. A chilly winter night at a drive-in in Britain? I don’t think so.
