Decoding Annie Parker
One in every nine women will be stricken with breast cancer in their life, or in other words, approximately two million women across the next twenty years. You would think that would be enough to make people sit up and take notice, but geneticist Mary-Claire King had to fight to get anyone to pay attention.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
OMG, an “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” mid-credits sting in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Crosssssooooverrrrrrrr! Nope, as you’ve probably read by now. The only reason that this unlikely event – a 20th Century Fox movie being promoted within a Sony/Columbia tentpole – happened was because it was essentially in director Marc Webber’s contact. The filmmaker owed another move to Fox Searchlight (sibling company of parent Fox) after “(500) Days of Summer,” and so in order for him to make “The Amazing Spider-Man” and the sequel, Sony had to agree to promote one of Fox’s upcoming movies (they chose “X-Men Days of Future Past” in the aforementioned example).

While the internet is no doubt useful to maintain our required daily cute animal fix, it’s also home to many recordings of older and foreign television programs that otherwise would never have seen the light of day. Case in point, the Criterion-approved Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky was profiled for an hour-long special on the iconic BBC series, Arena, a treat that would have never made it on the airwaves outside of Britain, then or now.

Martin Scorsese
Before his reinvention as a blockbuster director, Jon Favreau hosted a half-hour show for IFC called “Dinner For Five” that found the multi-hyphenate engaged in conversation with four other guests from the film industry over dinner. Though borne of a simple premise, the show was often illuminating, funny and, most of all, humanizing, especially when larger stars or industry legends were involved. The sole digression from the title-and-premise was a one-on-one conversation with Favreau’s future “The Wolf Of Wall Street” director Martin Scorsese that’s been making the rounds online.

13 Sins
Real human beings take a certain kind of sadistic pleasure in watching fictional human beings suffer. As long as it's from a safe distance, and it's not affecting you or yours on any level, watching man turn into beast right before your very eyes could feel almost empowering. Just think about the most popular video games for a second, if all the violent movies aren't convincing enough. This type of barbarity gets upped a notch when you throw in the theme of voyeurism; not only are we watching how low some people will go, but now we're watching them being watched, controlled, and manipulated into doing some really nasty stuff. We've seen it on taut psychological display in David Fincher's “The Game,” James Wan's “Saw” begat an entire franchise on it, and more recently E.L. Katz's “Cheap Thrills” had all sorts of delirious fun with it during the festival circuit. With Daniel Stamm's “13 Sins” however, the idea is skinned to the bone and thrown to the dogs. Trouble is, not even the dogs might enjoy this one.
