Boardwalk Empire, Season 4
Out of the gloomy, dark fog, voices and the faint outlines of faces appear. Chalky White (Michael K. Williams) and Daughter Maitland (Margot Robbie) are once again in the backseat of a car. But this time, instead of driving to their would-be demise (as they almost did at the climax of last week’s episode, a harrowing conclusion that saw the injured Chalky escape death by a hair’s breadth), they’re being taken to safety. Though you might not know it from the icy demeanor of their chauffeurs.

"Boardwalk Empire" either canters or gallops, there's usually no in between trot, but we suppose we should accept it and be happy that things are moving forward at a nice gait (though pacing would be nice). The fifth episode of the fourth season, the German word "Erlkönig"—named after a thematic poem read during the episode—was about as explosive as it gets for a mid-season entry. Two characters died, one recently introduced and brimming with promise, the other a longtime character 'Boardwalk' fans recently grew to have tremendous affection for. But the episode could have easily been titled "Loyalty" considering how heavy the theme (and lack thereof it) hung over the proceedings.

Ron Livingston
While HBO already has a busy spring slate with "Game Of Thrones" season 3, "Veep" season 2, "Vice" and "Behind The Candelabra" all premiering, the cable network is continuing to develop a promising lineup of news shows, while adding to existing hits. So let's dive in.

Scientific fact: every movie is better for having a little Sam Rockwell in it. Whether it's in a lead role, like in "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" or "Moon," or a scene-stealing supporting turn like in "Galaxy Quest" or the blockbuster "Iron Man 2," he's one of those actors who never gives a bad performance, and makes every picture he appears in that much better.

After a break-out turn in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker," where he went toe-to-toe with Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty hasn't exactly risen at the same trajectory as his two former co-stars; his most high-profile roles to date are in the yet-be-released ensemble rom-com "Ten Year" and the universally-panned horror flick "ATM."

Review: 'ATM' Is An Impossibly Implausible, Hilariously Bad B-Movie

Cheap, slapped-together run-of-the-mill B-movie thrillers are a dime a dozen. And their egregiousness is often not worthy of outrage or scorn because frequently the films are made on the cheap with a knowing eye towards making a buck with direct-to-DVD sales or foreign markets that don’t care about quality. Everyone is professional and yet (very) aware they’re not making art.

If you're looking to make your first film, a single-location thriller seems to be a pretty good way of doing it; a small cast, a manageable shoot, and a simple canvas on which to show off your direction (indeed, not so long ago, we ran a list of some of the best of the genre). That's the approach David Brooks has taken with his debut "ATM," which comes from the pen of Chris Sparling, a man who knows a thing or two about single-locations, having written the Ryan Reynolds vehicle "Buried," which was set, entirely, in a coffin.

It might have taken a little time (18 months passed between the film's premiere in Venice and its Oscar victory), but basically everyone came out of "The Hurt Locker" with a ton of heat behind them. Directing and writing pair Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal attracted the attention of most of the A-list for their thriller "Triple Frontier," before switching streams to head to the unexpectedly timely "Kill Bin Laden," which is gearing up to go next. Jeremy Renner has become the most sought-after leading man in town, with lead roles in "The Avengers," "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "The Bourne Legacy," while Anthony Mackie has done equally well, cropping up in everything from the imminent "Real Steel" to the upcoming "Gangster Squad."

TIFF '11 Review: 'Ten Year' Brings Together A Strong Cast For A Mixed Bag Of Comedy & Drama

Births, funerals, marriage, anniversaries and even annual vacations have all served as plot devices in the reunion film, a genre that usually finds middle-aged or older characters dealing with a crisis that is exacerbated by seeing old family and friends. And while "Ten Year" certainly isn't breaking new territory, producer and star Channing Tatum, along with writer/director Jamie Linden ("Dear John"), do take an interesting approach. Wisely not going far beyond their own age bracket, this film brings together a pretty solid ensemble cast of some of the best up-and-coming actors working right now for a tale that catches up with a gaggle of friends for a reunion -- you guessed it -- ten years after their graduation from high school. Taking on a bunch of characters as they leave their twenties is definitely a smart concept but instead of offering what could have been an honest look at contemporary soon-to-be thirtysomethings and the challenges, fears and triumphs they have endured, "Ten Year" delivers a mixed bag of CW plots that at worst are cliché and predictable, with a very few that do stand out.
