There's very few filmmakers that I pay attention to, and Wes Anderson is one of them. The eccentric filmmaker has a very bold and distinct style about each one of his movies, and a bit of himself is sprinkled into each one whether it be through his sharp directing style or the comedy sprinkled in, not to mention the wonderful cast of characters that joins in on each film. The...

Edward Norton hosted SNL for the first time ever this past Saturday, and there were a lot of great moments that came out of his episode.

Pretty much unarguably one of the best films of last year was Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, though it was only nominated for one academy award -- that being best original screenplay (which was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola). Though its chances are slim, it is still campaigning, and one of the benefits of this campaign is the opportunity to read the...
