For a film by the brother of "In Bruges" director Martin McDonagh starring Brendon Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong and Liam Cunningham, there's surprisingly been pretty much no talk about crime-comedy "The Guard," which debuted to mixed-to-positive reviews at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

Irish director John Carney has remained relatively quiet since his 2007 sleeper hit "Once" -- while he did make the low-fi sci-fi-comedy "Zonad" which featured at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2009, to say that film didn't exactly reach the heights of the filmmaker's previous effort would be a major understatement. That might explain then why, without the knowledge of many, Carney's next film is already in post-production after shooting late last year.

Despite being one of the funniest shows on television (okay, the last couple of seasons have been wildly uneven) outside of Steve Carell and Ed Helms, the other members of "The Office" cast haven't quite been able to make the big screen leap. John Krasinski, seemingly the most obvious candidate for an easy transition into the movies, has appeared in a series of middling efforts including "Leatherheads," "It's Complicated," "Away We Go" and this spring's "Something Borrowed." As for his onscreen better half Jenna Fischer, she too has wallowed in thankless roles in "Walk Hard," "The Promotion" and "Hall Pass" but she hopes to change that with her new indie effort.

What year is this? Seriously. Because looking at the tracklisting for Michael Bay's "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon" soundtrack it feels like we've been whipped mercilessly back a least a decade or more. Somebody needs to update Bay's iPod.

Worst film of the year so far? Zack Snyder's massively wrongheaded and overstuffed faux feminist folly is certainly up there, but the film does have its defenders and the debate will start all over again when "Sucker Punch" hits BluRay next month with a longer extended cut which will add 18 minutes to the already overly long movie.

It feels like a long time since we had a major film from Shane Meadows. It's not that the director hasn't been busy, it's just that his work's either been somewhat slight -- the lovely, but lightweight "Somers Town," and the low-fi mockumentary "Le Donk and Scor-Zay-Zee" -- or on television, like last year's four-part "This Is England '86." That series, which picked up a BAFTA for actress Vicky McClure on Sunday, has a follow-up currently in production, "This Is England '88," but it also looks like Meadows is finally making a return to some bigger-scale cinematic work.

No country loves the crime genre quite as much as the French. Sure, it might have been derived from the States, but it was the French who really took it to their hearts, giving directors like Sam Fuller and Alfred Hitchcock the critical respect they craved, and reinventing it with the likes of "À bout de souffle" and "Rififi," while many of the best recent examples, like Jacques Audiard's "The Beat That My Heart Skipped" and "A Prophet," came from France. And if the French crime picture has one actor firmly associated with the genre, their Robert De Niro or Al Pacino, it's Vincent Cassel.
