TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 Confirmed With Mahershala Ali

Splashons, despite what some have called the worst second season known to man (shout out to weird lounge singer), HBO’s limited series True Detective will officially return for a third season. This upcoming season will star Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. Nic Pizzolatto is set to direct, along with Jeremy Saulnier. That’s quite a big boulder to put on Ali’s shoulders. I guess he can’t really fail because no one’s going in with huge expectations… not after last time. But, then again, when it comes out it could be great and he’ll be the one we hoist on shoulders. The next installment...

TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL Begins, Bringing Magic Back to Colorado Mountains

The 44th incarnation of the world-renowned Telluride Film Festival began with its usual under-stated fanfare on Friday, bringing to the idyllic Colorado Mountains the usual lineup of stars, awards hopefuls, and diehard movie fans. Only the rest of Labor Day weekend will tell how far the event organizers have hit it out, but the slate of options and early returns portend well for the gathering. Telluride Film Festival has always prided itself in its smaller and egalitarian but somewhat exclusive nature. The fest is small as it boasts of a more selective menu of movies and of having no...

For a show that was going so seamlessly, even perfect one may say, the 89th Academy Awards will always be remembered for one of the most embarrassing moments in Oscars history, when Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture. Halfway through the acceptance speeches, they realized that there had been a mistake and Moonlight had won Best Picture. We will have to wait and see what happened and who made the mistake (I suspect it was PWC), but in the end the story of the night will be overwhelmingly this colossal error. So...
