Jon Favreau News

El Jefe is back! More Cubanos for everybody! Open Road Films has announced a re-release of the beloved summer indie comedy Chef, written, directed by and starring Jon Favreau. If you haven't already seen the film (or even if you have already!) they're offering you another chance to catch this up on the big screen. Although I would say this is probably best eaten while preparing you're own feast of a meal, because all it will make you want is the best food you can possibly eat during and after.

Jon Favreau's passion project Chef rose from an undistributed line-item at SXSW into a publicly discussed crowd-pleaser so quickly it feels like a flash flood...or a Polaroid. The comedy's production history declares it authentic while the subject and approach seal its popularity, and right now it's the just about critic-proof, which is ironic because the film is about a fusty, mid-career chef (writer/director Jon Favreau) in tailspin after the Roger Ebert of food review (Oliver Platt) “destroys” his career.

'Iron Man 3' Review: What's Under the Shell?

Iron Man 3
If first acts counted for everything, then Iron Man 3 would be a flawless five-star extravaganza of comic book fun: A sequel that starts off by accentuating its franchise's ruthlessly charming star, a fleet-footed action flick that drives the viewer around the world and sets up the stakes before the first 10 minutes have elapsed, and a tightly scripted, quip-laden techno-farce with loads of physical comedy, no shortage of off-handedly funny pop culture references, and even a little thought-provoking subtext in the bargain.
