‘Spring Breakers’ Review

James Franco might not be the best actor working in movies today, but he's almost certainly the most fearless. His choices are as unpredictable as they are gutsy. He'll try just about anything: television dramas ('Freaks & Geeks'), soap operas ('General Hospital'), comedies ('Pineapple Express'), and big blockbusters ('Spider-Man,' 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'). His latest role, in Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers,' might be his craziest and most daring to date. He plays Alien -- pronounced "A-Leen" in Franco's South Florida drawl -- a drug dealer and aspiring rapper who likes to boast that he's from another planet. Franco's performance is suitably extraterrestrial: hilarious, disturbing, deranged, poignant and endlessly quotable. In an instant classic scene, Alien shows off all his prized possessions -- machine guns and money and nunchucks and 'Scarface' DVDs on constant repeat -- while screaming "Look at my s---!" Alien's orders are superfluous; any time Franco's onscreen, you can't take your eyes off him.

Prince Closes SXSW 2013 With Epic Performance at Samsung Galaxy Party

Backed by the latest version of his New Power Generation -- now with 12-piece horn section -- the Purple Yoda held the stage at Austin's La Zona Rosa until 3AM, stringing together a main set and six encores, according to the Philadelphia Enquirer.

SXSW 2013 Recap: Day Four

There's no way anyone can check out everything that happens at South by Southwest. It's impossible. Even if you moonlighted as the world's greatest superhero, you wouldn't be able to check out every single thing that goes down at one of the year's most buzzed-about music fests

Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players Bring the Star Power at SXSW 2013

Dave Grohl and his Sound City Players hit SXSW 2013 last night (March 14), playing to a packed house at Stubb's BBQ in Austin. Grohl warned those badgeholders and attendees lucky enough to get into the show that it was going to be a long night, but we doubt anyone was too bummed about the prospect of a marathon set with Grohl at the helm. The show was one of the hottest tickets of the festival so far.
