This isn't quite fair -- it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. No one's amateur/college-made first directorial effort is good. Hell, no one's independently-funded first effort is generally very good (see PTA's "Cigarettes & Coffee" or what's left of Quentin Tarantino's "My Best Friend's Birthday"). But for a slow President's Day, here's something to occupy you for fifteen minutes: Ben Affleck's directorial debut, the 1993 short "I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Ηung Ηer on a Μeathook & Νow I Have a Three-Picture Deal with Disney."

Horror films have recently found a new way to scare, by delivering bite-sized servings of terror. Recent successes like "V/H/S" and "The ABCs Of Death" have shown filmmakers getting creative within a smaller format, and the upcoming "Sanitarium" promises genre fans another dose of thrills in a contained package.

By the look of its teaser material, the spring break of the upcoming “Spring Breakers” was set to be a rowdy one with or without Skrillex. Nevertheless, the filmmakers got him on board, along with a host of other talent to provide the bass drops for Harmony Korine's upcoming movie.

Decisiveness, it seems, hasn’t been high on Kevin Smith’s New Year agenda. First, the third installment of his cult franchise, "Clerks," was going to be a feature film, then a 6-monther on Broadway, then - nope, actually – an online serial (all of this following his announced retirement from directing). Now, just as fans thought he couldn’t toy with them any longer, Smith has undertaken one (last?) change of tack: "Clerks" – the book.

While we all know the big titles that emerge out of the Sundance Film Festival every year, it's easy to forget there are smaller gems as well, which are not only worth tracking down but that also have earned their fair share of acclaim. In 2012, "Violeta Went To Heaven" won the World Cinema Dramatic Jury Prize in Park City, went on to appear at festivals around the world including stops in Miami, Oslo and Hamburg, and earned a Goya nomination Best Iberoamerican Film. The picture is gearing to hit theaters this spring, and we have the exclusive poster below.

Though human civilization keeps sailing past its supposed end-dates, the apocalypse is still a source of fascination for many of us, and for filmmakers in particular. While this year will see the serious and big-budget take on the end with the Brad Pitt-starring zombie tentpole “World War Z,” Todd Berger has delivered a smaller and more irreverent take on our doom with the black comedy “It’s A Disaster.” A trailer has now arrived online, so stock up on supplies and check it out below.

After a pretty rough second installment, there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about "Iron Man 3." There's the presence of veteran action writer/director Shane Black ("Lethal Weapon," "The Last Boy Scout," "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") getting behind the camera, and a pretty great cast joining the usual franchises faces, with folks like Ben Kingsley and Rebecca Hall on board. And then there's Guy Pearce, who we'd watch in just about anything, taking a rare detour to franchise land as well. And he's received his very own character poster for the movie.

"Saturday Night Live" is in something of a transitional period, one of many in its 30-odd-year history. Last season saw the show's two biggest stars, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg depart, with Jason Sudeikis likely to follow at the end of the current season (and Bill Hader and Fred Armisen surely not far behind). At the same time, there's been a hugely promising new intake; Taran Killam is coming into his own, and this season's newcomers Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant have proven to be goddamn rock stars straight out of the gate.

First Look At Josh Brolin As Dwight In 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

Amid the starry cast, the sexy women and even sexier violence, it's easy to forget that "Sin City," and it's forthcoming sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," are some impressive feats of technology as well. Robert Rodriguez has devised a rather fascinating approach that both keeps the budget down, but also allows him plenty of creative flexibility and the ability to eliminate any kind of scheduling problems. Shooting mostly on green screen, the "Sin City" films use lots of CGI to give a stylish look at the fraction of the cost of trying to replicate it realistically, and thanks to digital and editing wizardry, cast members don't even have to be standing opposite each other in order to interact. And as he gets 'Dame' ready for release later this year, Rodriguez has given a little sneak preview.
