Twilight: New Moon Okay, Robert Pattinson isn’t a vampire (he just plays one on the screen). But Twihard celebrityhood has made him, and the city he calls his part-time playground, eternal.
Superbad Was life funny before Seth Rogen? The former Point Grey High student wrote the script for Superbad here at age 14, then disappeared into the bosomy delights of Hollywood. Take us with you!

Matthew Good Since Vancouver’s most conscientious son split from his band, he’s established himself as a blogger and singer-songwriter of renown. With Vancouver, he sets his gimlet eye on the social problems of his hometown.
