Written by: Julia Siegel An enlightening documentary, a hilarious conversation, and two great characters made an afternoon at the Wellmont Theater a must-be place during the final weekend of the Montclair Film Festival. The excited, sold-out crowd broke into a thunderous round of applause when the still extremely popular Bill Nye walked into the theater. He brought his new documentary, Bill Nye: Science Guy, to screen and took part in a conversation with Stephen Colbert following the film. As a...

Written by: Julia Siegel Quadruple threat director, actor, screenwriter, and song writer Zoe Lister-Jones closed out the Montclair Film Festival with her hilarious new film, Band Aid. The film was a great choice to close out the festival, as it balances comedy, drama, and music perfectly. Lister-Jones, who also produced the film, participated in a post-screening Q&A film festival executive director Tom Hall. The film brings together her passions of music and filmmaking, much like what Patti Cake$ director Geremy...

Written by: Julia Siegel New Jersey has some weird folklore, but no story may be crazier than the events that occurred from Orson Welles’ radio broadcast of War of the Worlds on October 30, 1938.

Photo and Story by: Julia Siegel Film festivals typically show thought-provoking films, so it was no surprise that director Oren Moverman’s latest feature, The Dinner, made the lineup. Based on the Dutch book by Herman Koch, The Dinner uses a choppy, non-linear narrative to show how far four neurotic parents would go to protect their teenage children after they commit a horrific crime. The story unfolds through a series of flashbacks to formative times in the characters’ lives to show...

By: Peter Zezas Cold War Kids newest album is called “L.A. Divine” and it’s genuinely interesting. The album artwork is a lonely palm tree somewhere in what looks like California. I have never listened to Cold War Kids before this and listening to their songs I get the essence of the Alternative group known as Fun. Specifically, songs like Restless and Part Of The Night sound like the teen anthem songs in Fun’s albums, such as, We Are Young and...

By: Connor Faleski New Jersey’s own Real Estate has just released their new album “In Mind”, and with this new project comes a cleaner sound that hasn’t been heard on any other album in their discography. The synths are amazingly light, filling up all empty spaces that the punchy drums, bass, and refreshingly Mac Demarco-esque guitars left behind. Although the leading track “Darling” offers a charmingly odd time signature groove that plays like a nice breeze to the face, the rest...
