After directing last year's "Real Steel," it looked like director Shawn Levy was heading back home to 20th Century Fox to direct either an adaptation of "Frankenstein" or, possibly, a remake "Fantastic Voyage." As of September of last year, Levy said that both projects were still "possibilities," but in February, it looked like Levy would instead return to comedy (or perhaps he never left depending on how you feel about "Real Steel") with "The Internship," which would reunite "Wedding Crashers" actors Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. With the dust settled, Levy is officially helming "The Internship."

Review: Christianity & College Life Collide In Fresh 'Blue Like Jazz'

Most discerning moviegoers flinch when greeted with the prospect of a "Christian" film. Religion and mainstream cinema do not make comfortable bedfellows, as many films in this subgenre fit the very definition of "preaching to the choir," concerned not with challenging viewers as much as pandering to their most base instincts. "Blue Like Jazz," based on a book of autobiographical essays from writer and Christian Donald Miller, likely gives pause to those on the fence about religion-based material. Though this Kickstarter-funded effort, one that by far surpassed its budgetary goal on that website, actually plays like a real live movie, with actors, location, editing and proper music employed. Thank the Lord for small favors and damning praise!
