Today in New Orleans: 01.12.14

Tonight, a new film series kicks off at the Marigny Opera House, beginning with Won Kar-Wai’s In the Mood for Love. Indie rockers Royal Bangs are in town, playing on Freret, and Alex McMurray is performing solo on Frenchmen. On this day in 1932, Hattie Caraway became the first woman in the US Senate. Although Caraway represented Arkansas, it was Huey Long that helped her get into office. Now, more ways to close out the weekend. 

Hollywood South Film Review: Ender's Game

The novel Ender’s Game was mana for many of us who had troubled middle schools, but Gavin Hood’s adaptation succeeds as a slick, competent actioner any dull bob can enjoy. That’s definitely better news than surrounded the film prior to its release. But Ender’s Game embraces a pounding score and lens flare over the more complex objectives of friendship and cultural prejudice.

Hollywood South Inches Closer to StarMaps

La seems more and more like LA everyday. Filming movies alone does not qualify NOLA for the title of Hollywood South; no, any self respecting Hollywood needs glitz and gawkers. We've always had beads to fill the glitz, but now we have the gawkers as well. Enter (stage left) New Orleans Movie Tours.

So Busted

by Arielle Schecter

Sam Rockwell and Hilary Swank star in "Conviction," a film about one woman's quest to overturn her brother's sentencing for a crime he didn't commit. The movie opens on Friday, but apparently Harahan is Louisiana's Tribeca, and you can see it tonight, for free, if you play your cards right. Contact the friendly folks at Advance Screenings or Innocence Project for your passes.

Abiding, Pt. X

The Dude on Saving Lives

Jeff Dowd, the real life inspiration for The Dude in "The Big Lebowski," explains the lasting love for the movie and how the film saved a life and supports the troops.


Warner B's

Need an extra job? Wannabe a PA? Well, you missed the boat on Green Lantern, and Treme is offseason. However, Warner Brothers loved the Big Easy (and our tradable tax breaks) so much that they want to shoot the next Batman film down here. Comic Book Nerds with their own website tell us more.

Hubigs Hubris!

The new multiplex at the mall is open. No, I'm sorry. I meant, the new Landmark Theatres Cinema at the Shops at Canal Place have commenced business. Along with the absurdities of semantics, the theaters have bought along an equally pretentious concession that will serve such delicacies as truffle drizzled popcorn, and $4 Hubigs. These are the same as regular Hubigs but with whipped cream... and served at the "Shops."
