There are two ways you can use a GPS. One way is calmly punch in the coordinates and let the little gizmo do its work on the dashboard. The Bryan Mills way -- which only comes into practice when you're being chased Euro thugs -- is to grip the thing in your hands like the jaws of life and furiously punch in details like you were playing "Angry Birds" after drinking a six pack of Red Bull. Welcome to "Taken 2."

If there is one thing this spring's "Silent House" with Elizabeth Olsen, this Friday's "The House At The End Of The Street" with Jennifer Lawrence, and next year's "Mama" with Jessica Chastain proves, it's that Hollywood loves getting their young female talent in tank tops/low cut shirts and then having them run around screaming. And "The Hunger Games" star will do just that this weekend.

With "The Master" now open in limited release and hitting more cities in the coming weeks, talk about what the film is (a raw portrait of the hunger and pain of finding meaning in one's life) and isn't (an expose on Scientology) will continue for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film. And one of those talking points will also be the excellent soundtrack, which, in addition to Jonny Greenwood's avant score, also features a very good helping of big band and jazz/pop standards. And while the official soundtrack release is mostly centered on the composer's works, we've got our hands on the full list of tunes in the movie.

Well, if you're gonna go out, might as well do it in a blaze of glory.

But it appears he's got some big plans for this final picture, which may include one last walk down the red carpet in Cannes.

We have to admit, the premise of "Sinister" kind of put us off from the start. The story centers on a novelist who moves into a home where a family was recently murdered and discovers home video footage that might reveal exactly what happened to them. Toss in director Scott Derrickson ("The Exorcism Of Emily Rose," "The Day The Earth Stood Still") and a not so inspiring cast led by Ethan Hawke and....yawn, right? Well, guess again.

So, will Warner Bros. strike "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games" sized gold with "Beautiful Creatures," another young adult novel adaptation? Well, they might if they actually started marketing the thing, which comes out in about five months. But until a trailer drops, we'll have to do with some stills from the flick instead, which certainly don't hid the fantasy elements that are a big part of this story.

While it might seem like something that could only be dreamed by Hollywood -- the movies save hostages! -- the fact of the matter is that Ben Affleck's upcoming "Argo" is indeed based on a true story. If you haven't read it, then pull up a chair and check out Wired's riveting “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran” which served as the foundation for the movie that tells the tale of the CIA's ambitious mission to get Americans holed up in post-revolution Tehran by pretending to be in the country shooting a movie. But it seems the movie ruffled a few feathers north of the border, though the amiable Affleck has done what he can to smooth things over.

Kickstarter has been something of a game changer in the movie industry, allowing smaller scale projects or more creatively ambitious endeavors, that the studios wouldn't touch, to find an audience and the financing to make it happen. But what happens if you already have a movie finished, but you just need to get it out there? Well, the crowd-sourcing option is there as well, and the team behind "Ingenious" starring Jeremy Renner are hoping to raise enough funds to get their movie out there.
