On Wednesday evening at the Apple Store in Soho, I hosted a chat with Jon Favreau about his new film, ‘Chef’ (which premiered at SXSW and is playing this week at the Tribeca Film Festival -- opening May 9 in New York and L.A., then expanding on May 16), which is a return for Favreau to his indie roots that began with films like ‘Swingers’ and ‘Made.’

You probably know Chris Messina best from 'The Mindy Project.' Or maybe it's 'The Newsroom.' Or maybe it's one or more of the following: 'Argo,' 'Julia & Julia,' 'Greenberg,' 'Devil,' 'Away We Go,' 'Like Crazy,' 'Ruby Spa

Paul Schneider is what you might politely call "a straight shooter." Though, it's not too often an interview is conducted with an actor who honestly appears to want to be doing anything else with his life other than acting.

‘Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary’ Review: Everything Is…Pretty Okay

LEGO

Yes, it’s a little odd that another LEGO movie is coming out so quickly after the release of, well, ‘The LEGO Movie’ – that also features an animated LEGO mini-fig voiced by a well-known celebrity. In this case, it’s Jason Bateman (as opposed to Chris Pratt) and this is a documentary (or, as they are calling it, a “brickumentary”), not a narrative feature.

‘Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary’ (which premiered this week at the Tribeca Film Festival) is a sort of companion piece, as opposed to direct competitor, to the aforementioned ‘The LEGO Movie’ – especially considering that ‘The LEGO Movie’ is mentioned quite a few times over the course of this film and we even see the shooting of a particular scene. (Funny, if you don’t want to be spoiled on how ‘The LEGO Movie’ ends, you probably should avoid ‘Beyond the Brick.’) Also, it’s endlessly fascinating.

It's obvious, even from her facial expressions, that Abby Elliott still has mixed feelings about her time on 'SNL.' Which seems like a completely normal reaction, considering how all-encompassing the demands of that show can be for be anyone, especially someone like Elliott, who had almost four full seasons (she joined the cast for the eighth show of the 2008-2009 season) on the show, and was then not brought back for a fifth.

There’s a scene in ‘Life is Illmatic’ – the new documentary chronicling the creation on Nas’ seminal hip hop album, ‘Illmatic,’ which premiered Wednesday night at the Tribeca Film Festival – in which Nas’ brother, Jabari, lists the fates of everyone in a group photo taken the day of Nas’ ‘Illmatic’ album cover shoot. The photo, 20 years old now, is of people from the Queensbridge Houses, the housing project that sits nestled under the Queensboro Bridge, right along the East River in New York City. The results aren’t pretty.

As Jabari goes down the line, almost everyone in the picture – mostly kids at the time – are either now dead or in prison. As Nas points out, without the music, that would have been them, too.
