It seems the baseball movie is back in vogue in Hollywood. While the genre pics are generally well-received stateside, studios and the like have been reluctant to put too much money behind them in recent times, as the sport doesn't play well internationally, where box office dollars are more important than ever. But with Jackie Robinson getting the big-screen treatment courtesy of Brian Helgeland's "42," another giant of the game is stepping up to the plate.

While there are still those who will bitch and moan that Woody Allen's comedies haven't evolved much over the past few decades, for those with appropriate expectations, the director's films are -- even at their flimsiest -- generally a delightful annual treat. And so it goes with "To With Rome Love," which hardly breaks new ground, but offers up enough charms that we're looking forward to it.

In their 2006 book "Carnivorous Nights: On the Trail of the Tasmanian Tiger," authors Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson, then researchers at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, talked about becoming obsessed with a stuffed Tasmanian Tiger that they would walk by every day in the museum. It became "something akin to amorous fervor," and eventually they decided to take a trip to Tasmania to see if the tiger, which officially became extinct in 1936 when the lone survivor died at the Hobart Zoo, still existed, somewhere in the wild. It's the kind of mysterious animal – lithe, beautiful, angular – that inspires this kind of devotion, even decades after its extinction. And it's this kind of nearly mythic eeriness that seeps into "The Hunter," Daniel Nettheim's dark and deeply haunting film based on the novel by Julia Leigh, about a man (Willem Dafoe) obsessed with finding the tiger, no matter the cost.

There are conspiracy theorists and then there is Alex Jones. The kind of right-wing, sort-of-conservative, not-really-libertarian, alarmist radio show host has turned tin-foil-hat-wearing speculation into a viable business model, and continues to find any and every opportunity to weave together the barest strands of logic into iron-clad proof that the New World Order is upon us.

This writer is going to use this moment to reveal something he's long kept a secret from many people: I'm a Rufus Wainwright fan. That's right, this cantankerous, snarky writer can't help but get caught up in the musician's larger-than-life pop songs and is probably the only person around these parts looking forward to his new album Out Of The Game. And Montreal's proud son has snagged a pretty great actress to star is the first video off the album.
