This will be the first starring TV role for the "Rocky," "Rambo," and "Expendables" actor, though he has guest-starred on "This Is Us" and older shows like "Kojak."Deadline reports that "Kansas City" will follow "a New York City Italian mobster, played by Stallone, forced to relocate to the most unlikely of places — Kansas City, Missouri." This sounds reminiscent of FX's...

The Do The Right Thing Controversy Explained

In 1989, a movie came out that offered audiences a fresh, colorful, scathing insight into race relations in the United States. That movie wasn't "Driving Miss Daisy," the twee and patronizing tale of an elderly white woman and her Black driver in 1940s Georgia. "Daisy" won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, mystifyingly beating a strong field rounded out by "Born on the Fourth of July," "Dead Poets Society," "Field of Dreams," and "My Left Foot."The movie I'm talking about, of course, is Spike ...

Burgers, ribs, chili and other tailgate foods that football fans will enjoy

I grew up a short walk from the old Yankee Stadium, which is where the New York Giants played before they moved to a swamp in New Jersey. On Sundays, braving the winds of winter, often covered with flurries, we’d assemble in Babe Ruth Park across from the stadium to listen to the game on tinny transistor radios — and more importantly cook hot dogs and hamburgers over sad little hibachis, which had barely enough surface for a couple of dogs, and then a couple of buns. Still, we were tailgating, p...

Beat the summer doldrums with comforting eats in the San Fernando Valley

“Doldrums” — it’s a wonderful word, born as the sailor’s jargon for what’s technically known as the Intertropical Convergence Zone. That’s the zone near the Equator, where the northeast and southeast trade winds converge, canceling each other out — leaving a region with no wind, where sailing ships would become trapped in what’s also known as “the calms.” They were caught, unable to move, with their water running short, and their food running low. It often was a death sentence for the sailors of...

Fifteen years after the release of his cult-classic film, Cocaine Cowboys, director Billy Corben is returning to Miami’s cocaine wars with a new docuseries.

Father’s Day dining in the San Fernando Valley

I used to believe that Father’s Day was something of a runner-up holiday, a consolation prize awarded to fathers after the gala celebration of Mother’s Day, with its flowers and candy and chocolates and brunch. A day given to fathers, somewhat begrudgingly, when they’re given the honor of standing over the Weber burning steaks, chicken and fish, until they’re finally released from toil, and allowed to collapse on the couch and watch a Dodgers game in peace, with a cold one in hand. And boy, was ...

Steinbeck’s Productive Inactivity

Good news: if you have $17.9 million available, John Steinbeck’s 1.8 acre waterfront retreat is now for sale. It’s tucked onto a grassy peninsula in Upper Sag Harbor Cove, and features a pool, a long pier,  and two cozy guest cottages. Arguably most important is the hexagonal, 100-square-foot “writer’s house” overlooking the water. Encountering this real estate listing sent me down a brief but entertaining Steinbeck-at-Sag-Harbor rabbit hole. He bought the house in 1955, I discovered, 16 years ...

The Food That Defined Film and Television in 2020

I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to stuff myself into restaurant booths surrounded by companions, boozy creations, and another kitchen’s signature nibbles. I love to write about how filmmakers utilize food, whether it’s to set a mood, spark a connection, or layer a sense of comfort atop an otherwise deceptively tense standoff. Dinner tables alone set a stage for dysfunction, disillusion, and disappointment as homestyle perfection crumbles around honey-baked hams while nuclear families go,...

The Handwritten First Draft of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing

In March 1988, Spike Lee wrote a first draft screenplay for his movie Do The Right Thing in just over 2 weeks. Four pages of this handwritten draft are pictured above. I wasn’t able to track down the entire screenplay, but the typed second draft can be found here. From a book companion to the film, here’s an excerpt from Lee’s journal from the day before he began writing: Yesterday I began work on the script. Well, actually, I began the last work before the actual writing of the script....

17 best American food restaurants in the San Fernando Valley

Some time back, flipping through a copy of one of the weekly news magazines, my eye was caught by a double-page advertisement for a contest sponsored by one of the cigarette companies. The advertisement consisted of a map of the United States, and a banner headline about winning a gourmet tour of America. I stared at the ad, dumbfounded. I have long come to believe that one of the best-kept culinary secrets of the world is that American food is really great stuff, and here that secret was, laid ...

Spike Lee Releases Short Film ‘3 Brothers – Radio Raheem, Eric Garner And George Floyd’

In 1989, Spike Lee released Do the Right Thing, a galvanizing portrait of racial tensions boiling over in one Brooklyn neighborhood during one long summer day. It’s a film that remains as powerful today as it was all those years ago. It’s also still depressingly relevant, as Lee’s film ends with the police murdering neighborhood local Radio Raheem – an act that leads to a riot. All these years later, very little has changed in the real world that Lee was reflecting, and after a weekend that saw...

VOTD: Turning Up the Heat in Spike Lee’s ‘Do the Right Thing’

It’s been over 30 years since director Spike Lee released the provocative, insightful, and unfortunately prescient racially charged drama Do the Right Thing. The film follows a pizza delivery man named Mookie (played by Lee himself) as he makes the rounds in a Brooklyn neighborhood on one of the hottest days of the year. Tensions rise with the heat, leading to an explosive confrontation between whites, blacks and the law. Sadly, Do the Right Thing is still relevant to this day as protesters cla...

8 best burgers in the San Fernando Valley for takeout and delivery

I do believe that my earliest culinary memories are of eating hamburgers. I remember going to a drive-in with my dear old dad, cruising to White Castle in the family Studebaker (with the classic bullet-tip nose) and watching in wonder as he’d order two dozen burgers for himself, my mother, my sister and myself. They cost 12 cents each, and they were just wonderful. In case you’ve never had the pleasure of a White Castle burger (by and large an Eastern U.S. phenomenon), you must understand that f...
