In April of last year it was reported that legendary comedy group Monty Python‘s final stage performance, titled The Last Night of Monty Python and described as a “…final, weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Python’s as they head to the Old Jokes Home, on the big screen, in HD” would be shown live in theaters around the world.
A documentary titled Monty Python — The Meaning of Life was also filmed during these final shows that offers a glimpse into the preparation that went into the live shows and the history of the comedy group. The documentary will make its international debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival—running from April 15th to April 26th—where Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin will be on hand. While there, the group will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail and their other classics with screenings followed by Q&A sessions.
Most gamers need only hear the name David Cage to become interested in a new video game. Cage and his Quantic Dream’s primary focuses are emotion and storytelling and innovation, which they nailed with Heavy Rain. The team then set out to build off of the foundation they had set with Heavy Rain, which led to the conception of Beyond: Two Souls.
We first found out about the game at E3 last year, when it was revealed that Ellen Page would be the star of the game and a very impressive preview was shown off. Now a new gameplay demo for Beyond: Two Souls has been released, and it is a big one. The demo was shown off at the Tribeca Film Festival—a first for a console-exclusive game—and spans a whopping 35 minutes. In it, you see all of the emotion, storytelling, and innovation Cage and Quantic Dream strive for, making it well worth your time.

If you know me or if you read the site, you probably wouldn’t think of me as someone who was into the lovey-dovey romance movies. Truth is, while I really get sickened by the ridiculously cheesy and unrealistic “rom-coms” that are mass produced to steal the incomes of a multitude of tissue-wielding women, I can admit that I enjoy a well-done romance movie from time to time. I’ve never been much of a relationship kind of person, but have still been considered something of a romantic at times, and so long as the movie is entertaining and doesn’t get out of hand, I’m down for a viewing!
Enter The Good Guy: a new film from Roadside Attractions and director Julio DePietro about a young, seemingly-perfect couple living the big city life. The movie debuted last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and follows Beth (Alexis Bledel), a sweet and beautiful young woman with a good job and a great group of friends in New York City. Beth has been seeing Tommy (Scott Porter), a Wall Street hot shot, for a few months now, and all seems to be going very well with the couple who are preparing to head to Italy on a business/vacation trip. At first the pair appear to be living the modern day fairy tale life, but when Beth meets Daniel (Bryan Greenberg) — who just happens to be the new member of Tommy’s team at work — she begins wondering if she’s where she wants to be. Tommy has all those good looks females desire and a big money job, while Daniel shows her a new, much more sensitive side to the male species. This of course creates that age-old dilemma for women: do you go for all the looks and financial security, or do you want someone who “gets you”?
