In the midst of summer blockbuster season, Mike Mills' "Beginners" will make its way to theaters. If you want to spend your money wisely and walk away with something you won't forget about when you throw away that half eaten bag of jumbo popcorn, you'll do yourself a favor and buy a ticket to this. The film earned a solid rave from our man at SXSW who called it "a wonderfully attuned and empathetic look at love, life and grief" and if that isn't enough, the soundtrack looks like it will be one you'll want to pick up.

Listen, we're all for anachronisms when it comes to music choices. Hell, the trailer for the Cannes film “L’Apollonide” does a great job of mixing soul music with a period film. But there are times when it's just clunky and plain absurd, which brings us to "X-Men: First Class."
