ACOD_Ticket_giveaway

cineAWESOME! is happy to be working with SVA Filmmakers Dialogue to present an opportunity to watch A.C.O.D., the new comedy by director Stuart Zicherman starring Adam Scott.

SVA Filmmakers Dialogue has provided us with a limited number of tickets to their screening of A.C.O.D. on Wednesday, October, 2nd, 6:15 PM, at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street. After the screening, there will be a discussion with director and co-writer Stuart Zicherman, who will give a blow-by-blow account on how he got his first film made, what it’s like to collaborate with JJ Abrams (on Six Degrees), and how to get your film accepted into Sundance.

A.C.O.D. follows Carter (Adam Scott), a seemingly well-adjusted Adult Child of Divorce. Having survived the zaniness of his parents’ divorce as a child, he now has a successful career and supportive girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). But when his younger brother (Clark Duke) gets engaged, it’s up to Carter to reunite his bitterly divorced parents (Richard Jenkins & Catherine O’Hara) for the wedding. When Carter seeks counsel from his childhood shrink (Jane Lynch), he discovers that he was part of a divorce study and the chaos of his childhood returns.

A.C.O.D. premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film marks the directorial debut of co-writer Stuart Zicherman (writer for FX’s The Americans).

The first 80 people to RSVP to news@subwaycinema.com will be put on the list. Winners will be notified by email with instructions on how to get tickets. Please put your name and if you have a plus one please include their name as well.

Jackie Chan

If you’re a fan of action cinema, stunt work, comedic action films. Hong Kong fare, you’re probably seen a Jackie Chan film or 10. If you’re like me, you might have found out about Jackie Chan around the year 1995, and as a 15 year old American kid tired of the 80′s action superstars that were starting to wane, Jackie Chan in Rumble in the Bronx was a breath of fresh air. Unknown to me, this man had been around for decades, honing his skill and just becoming the juggernaut half the world already knew. But I got the Hong Kong bug, the Jackie Chan bug which then made me open my mind to so many other amazing films (such as the Shaw Bros. and Golden Harvest catalogs) and other stars, such as Sammo Hung, Chan’s colleague and classmate and the badass Maggie Cheung.

Which brings us to 2013 and the New York Asian Film Festival. There’s not many places where you can actually see all of these films (13 in fact) of Jackie Chan’s in glorious 35mm prints. So many amazing films to choose from, such as seeing Jackie Chan in Chun Li’s costume to the cop that can’t be stopped, you really can’t go wrong. I’m excited about the usual big guns, such as the Police Story trilogy, but I’m ecstatic that some of the lesser seen fare, such as The Young Master and Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow are being showcased. All the information on each film and where to purchase tickets for these screenings below. They’re all taking place at the Walter Reade theater. While you’re there, if you’re seeing Armour of God, Armour of God 2, Miracles and Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow in particular, you should give our very own Rufus a huge thank you (and maybe a drink) because he’s one of the main men behind the live subtitling for those films.
