New Orleans

Drinking Games

Boy, that Brandon Routh is a real lady-killer. And in the movie Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, he’s a real lady-killer if she’s a monster and she wronged him in the past. We may not have seen much of Mr. Routh aside from his small parts in Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but that doesn’t mean he ain’t working. Dylan Dog follows Routh as a private investigator in New Orleans who is brought back into the monster hunting game. But we don’t care about monsters. We care about New Orleans. For this feature, every day is Mardi Gras, and everywhere open containers are legal.



Some documentaries serve as a thesis, arguing for or against a given perspective. Others are critical or historical inquiries into a given incident or situation. Still others are character pieces detailing a portrait of a unique human being. It’s rare that one finds a documentary that serves all three functions, and does it well. But that’s exactly what The Canal Street Madam is: one-part character study, one part argumentative thesis and one part historical inquiry. Fortunately for us, all its parts are compelling.



Every few months, a new project is announced that focuses either on Katrina itself, or more often the aftermath that the city is going through. However, HBO’s Treme is the first time I’ve actually felt like some compelling “dramatic entertainment” might have come out of it.



A few years ago, Disney announced that it would no longer be doing 2D animation. We’re lucky they changed their minds.



Despite New Orleans’ recent repeal of tax and labor incentives for companies that decided to film in the city, director Adam Marcus will take the cast and crew of RKO’s I Walked With a Zombie to The Big Easy this spring.
