Ben Lovett has a habit of going big. From his free record release at The Grey Eagle last year to the epic Ghost of Old Highways project, the rocker/composer/producer/multi-iinstrumentalist has a penchant for flare. Last week, Xpress dropped by the Masonic Temple to check out the set of his latest video, "Black Curtain." (Photo by Bill Rhodes)
Editor's note: Xpress sent local young-adult author Stephanie Perkins to cover the very hush-hush red carpet preview of The Hunger Games on Wednesday. Perkins was the perfect corespondent because, not only does she get young adult fiction, she was also chosen as an extra in the Hunger Games movie, filmed in Western N.C. Unfortunately, due to her busy writing schedule, Perkins had to back out of filming; luckily for us, she was available to catch the early viewing. Photo from the Asheville Citizen-Times website.

The Story: Two friends decide to enter into a nonromantic sexual relationship with predictable results that are presented in unpredictable ways. The Lowdown: Yeah, it's another R-rated romantic comedy, but it's the best of its kind -- slyly self-aware, charming and not relying on the usual gross-out gags.
The Story: Documentary covering a year at the New York Times as it fights for its survival in a changing media landscape. The Lowdown: Compelling, constantly watchable, but somewhat unfocused documentary that is held together by the subject and the personality of media reporter David Carr.
