10 Child Performers Who Aren’t Horrifyingly Obnoxious

This week, the underrated and rather lovely 1991 drama Little Man Tate makes its Blu-ray debut; it’s a film best known as Jodie Foster’s first in the director’s chair, but it also features a terrific Adam Hann-Byrd in the title role. His is one of those performances that come along every once in a while to remind you that, contrary to how it might seem, not all child actors are bratty, shrieking nightmares, cloyingly cute moppets, and/or smartass one-liner machines. Here are a few more of that rare ilk. … Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in March

At risk of getting all post-Oscar hyperbolic, I have a bit of good news: this is one of the best months for independent movies in a long, long time. Of the 11 films I had the chance to check out in preparation for this month’s indie guide, every single one is at least worth your time, and several are a good deal better than that; they offer a wide range of experiences, from familial comedy to baroque suspense to penetrating documentary to, well, Wes Anderson. (He’s kind of his own experience.) Our many, many recommendations for March movie-going are after the jump. … Read More

10 Truly Bizarre Museums Around the World

Las Vegas is now home to the Mob Museum. The cultural ode to organized crime opened its doors on February 14, marking the 83rd anniversary of Chicago’s St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Gang wars erupted in the Illinois state in 1929, leading to the murder of seven mob associates. Now you can learn about it all, up close and personal in Sin City — a place with its own history of mob ties. Exhibits include a revolver found at the site of the famous massacre and the barber chair, in which 1950’s mobster Albert Anastasia was assassinated. In order to keep things accurate, the museum staffs former FBI agents, former police officers, historians, and other experts. The Mob Museum isn’t the only offbeat institution, of course. We’ve found a few other bizarrely fascinating museums around the world that easily rival it. Find out what other exhibition spaces we raised our eyebrows at past the break. Tell us the places you’ve been to below. … Read More

Watch Elijah Wood and Mandy Moore in ‘The Death and Return of Superman’

Screenwriter Max Landis, son of famous director John Landis, had his first film, Chronicle, hit theaters yesterday. To coincide with that momentous event, Landis also chose that day to release his much-anticipated short film entitled The Death and Return of Superman (a mildly-clever marketing move, we admit). Described as a “somewhat-mostly-accurate educational parody film,” with nods to the “drunk history” short film trend, the film features Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Simon Pegg, Ron Howard, Chris Hardwick and more, and is an irreverent, sometimes hilarious, sometimes obnoxious look at DC Comics’ decision to kill and then resurrect Superman in 1992. Click through to watch the video, and let us know if it makes you more or less likely to go see Chronicle in the comments. … Read More
