*The Naked Gun, but if it took place in Israel
The Mossad and CIA team up to save the world from an international terror organization when an American tech-billionaire is kidnapped in Jerusalem.

Free, Must RSVP
AFI Fest, the annual free movie festival is happening in LA this week. You can snag tickets for screenings starting today. It's a great chance to see films from around the world, locally and for some reason this year flaunting the fact that 51% of them were directed by women. Oh, and the Midnight section that we love is practically dead with only two movies this year. What happened to horror? Yeeesh.
