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.

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
