Video: “The Last Happy Hour” Trailer

As some of you know, I’ve been playing around a bit with iMovie, Apple’s consumer-level video-editing application. Man, let me tell y’all — iMovie is fantastic.

So fantastic, in fact, that I am very eager to share with you one of the very first projects I created with it. Behold! I present to you, above, the trailer for The Last Happy Hour — starring me, of course.

“Baby Driver” Doesn’t Need A Sequel

Last week, I saw Baby Driver, a groovy, infectious jukebox-musical action flick that left me floored. The film by turns funny and thrilling, and although his character doesn’t say much, it’ll make a star of leading man Ansel Elgort.

Well, check this out. Alamo Drafthouse is opening a new theater in Downtown Los Angeles’ the Bloc retail center. Slated for a 2018 debut, this will be Alamo’s first L.A. location. Crazy, right?
