Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!

By Anna Albaryan

In this epic love story to the city of Los Angeles and its colorful food scene, restaurant critic Jonathan Gold paints an intimate portrait of his hometown with a different kind of artist’s palette. By bringing to center stage the no-name, hole-in-the-wall spots that make LA’s culture so rich, Gold accomplishes what few have done in the past. He shows us the true face of this vibrant city by exploring its most diverse eateries, and more importantly, the people who keep them running.

Man vs. nature. Man vs. man. Man vs. self. These outer and inner conflicts inhabit every moment in “The Revenant,” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s cinematic tour de force. The title aptly refers to Leonardo DiCaprio’s character who quite literally comes back from near-death to seek revenge on the man (played by a remarkably villainous Tom Hardy) who abandoned him and killed his son.

Directed by Tom Hopper (“The King’s Speech,” “Les Misérables”), “The Danish Girl” is a beautifully made film that tells the story of Lili Elbe and her transition from man to woman in late-1920s Copenhagen and Paris. Today, the subject of transgenderism is very present in our media, but during Lili’s lifetime, it was almost unheard of; she was one of the first people to get sex-reassignment surgery.

What Tom Hanks is to “Cast Away,” Matt Damon is to “The Martian.” Within the first 30 minutes of the movie, the similarities are hard to miss: Both men are left for dead (or rather, assumed dead) after a terrible accident. Both men are isolated for an extreme length of time. Both men must face, accept and then defy their own mortality to evolve into stronger versions of themselves. And both films feature first-rate actors who will be remembered in these roles for years to come.
