"I would be a liar if I was to say, across the board, no piracy," Quentin Tarantino told Cannes Film Festival press back in 2004 when he was serving as Jury president. That said, he wasn't advocating nicking movies that are legally available, instead saying that it's an option to view movies that are harder to find via traditional methods. So we can't imagine he's wildly pleased about this bit of news.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
As Movies.com notes, "The Counselor," "The Family," "The Last Exorcism Part II," "Movie 43," "The Purge," "Runner Runner" and "Scary Movie 5" are the only movies this year that managed a lower grade than the C+ CinemaScore recently earned by "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's hardly the kind of company you'd expect to find the latest film from Martin Scorsese included with, but then again, nothing about 'Wolf' meets ordinary expectations.

Kevin Smith Clerks
If Kevin Smith and Jay Z have anything in common, it's that they have a very loose interpretation of the word "retirement." If you recall, the filmmaker who once flirted with packing it all in following "Red State," has done anything but. While it looks like his once-mooted hockey epic "Hit Somebody" is sitting on the backburner somewhere, he's already wrapped on his next flick, the horror "Tusk," and it seems that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Some of the most acclaimed, dramatic and ambitious films of 2014 are coming to the Sundance Film Festival in a few weeks. Pictures that may be future Oscar contenders, with rising actors and talents to watch for in years to come. And while that's nice, sometimes you just want to sit down and watch something that's down, dirty and right to the point. Enter: "The Raid 2." Garth Evans' followup to his cult hit "The Raid" is here. And while the stakes are higher, the blood is still red.

Since its historic win at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where director Abdellatif Kechiche and stars Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux shared the Palme d'Or win for "Blue Is The Warmest Color," the epic love story has earned no shortage of press. From its boundary pushing NC-17 rated sex scenes, to the very public battle between the director and stars over a reportedly contentious shoot, the movie has survived the various slings and arrows, landing on numerous year end top ten lists, and through it all, the performance of Exarchopoulos has astonished nearly everyone who has seen the movie. So how about some awards season love?
