Note: All passes are gone. If I get more, I will repost. I'll contact winners early this week. Look for news of another IBJ Night at the Movies soon. --LH 

On Sept. 16th, I'll be hosting a sneak preview of the new Samuel L. Jackson thriller "Lakeview Terrace," directed by former Hoosier Neil LaBute. The screening will be held at AMC Castleton.

(As a playwright, LaBute also has his first Broadway play opening soon. Sorry I can't give away tickets to that.)

To score a pair of tickets to the film, be among the first to 1. e-mail me at lharry@ibj.com with "Lakeview Terrace" on the subject line, AND 2.) Post below with your favorite Samuel L. Jackson or Neil LaBute film.

I'll contact you if you've won.
  • Wait! Neil LaBute is a former Hoosier?!! The same Neil LaBute who wrote Fat Pig? How could I not have known that?!

    After I saw and loved that play at the Phoenix last year, I went on a Neil LaBute kick. I borrowed every movie of his that I could from my public library.

    I loved Nurse Betty, enjoyed Possession, but found Wicker Man to be just plain odd, and I thought The Shape of Things would never, ever end. I petered out before I could watch In the Company of Men.

    However, if I didn't already have to work at my day job on September 16, I'd be up for seeing his new movie.

    And for the record, I'd like to get the chance to chat with LaBute in person some day.

    Hope Baugh
  • I had no idea Lakeview Terrace was Neil LaBute when I saw the trailer, but now that I know, it makes complete sense. Augh. I've never seen the movie, but saw The Shape of Things live, and was totally engaged.

    It's not too original, but my favorite Samuel L. Jackson film is still Pulp Fiction. It's hard to argue with that sort of quality.
  • Ron Glass from Evansville is also in the film.
  • Samuel Jackson in The Negotiator
  • Pulp Fiction!
  • Nurse Betty!
  • Pulp Fiction
  • not high art but funny and fun to watch: The Man
  • A Time to Kill
  • Oh man, how do you narrow it down to one film! He was superb in The Negotiator. He was great and funny in The Man, with Eugene Levy. His seriousness against Levy's bumpkinness kept me crying the whole movie. The hamburger caper in the car had me on the floor near death from laughing.
  • I loved Pulp Fiction but I'm a fan of Formula 44 I think it was?
  • Die Hard.
    It was Samuel L's best role yet.
  • Favorite LaBute film: The Shape of Things- Great commentary on the shallowness of society
    Favorite Jackson film: Jackie Brown- Jackson's best badass villain portrayal
  • Jackie Brown
  • What, no one listed Snakes on a Plane? 1408 too, obscure reference....
  • Pulp Fiction
  • hhmmm.... in the company of men remains a favourite, because i love the fact it's all static shots (with a couple of exceptions)... i love that he directed 'nurse betty', rewriting much of the dialogue, and not taking credit... also, that he took the hits for 'wicker man', when it was the production companies (coughNICCAGEcough) that changed his original vision for the film...
  • I like several of Samuel L. Jackson's films, but one that truly intrigues me is UNBREAKABLE.
  • The first time I was exposed to Samuel's brilliance, was in Spike Lee's
    Jungle Fever. He played a SUPER scary junkie.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
