Sequels are the curse of modern-day moviegoing. Occasionally you find a good one, but more often the second or third installment dissipates all the fun and sense of discovery that made the original a hit in the first place.

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of screening "The Place Beyond the Pines," which opens in theaters March 29, for my class at USC School of Cinematic Arts. My guests were producer Jamie Patricof and co-writer/director Derek Cianfrance, who made a deliberate decision to shoot his feature on 35mm film.

It’s rare to find a mainstream American movie that doesn’t rely on formula to some degree. That’s one reason David O. Russell’s 'Silver Linings Playbook' is so refreshing: we haven’t encountered these characters before, and this is a character-driven piece. They’re unpredictable and idiosyncratic, but recognizably real. Even the neighborhood cop doesn’t talk or behave like a stock movie policeman.

There’s a compelling idea at the core of 'The Words', especially as acted out by Bradley Cooper and the incomparable Jeremy Irons, but it’s nearly extinguished by the material that surrounds it, sorry to say. The premise is solid: a struggling writer chances upon a long-lost manuscript and publishes it as his own.

Dax Shepard has modeled his new film 'Hit & Run'—which he wrote, co-directed, and stars in—after his youthful favorite, 'Smokey and the Bandit'. Like Burt Reynolds, he persuaded a bunch of his friends to join him in making a lighthearted car-chase movie with elements of comedy and romance.
