Employing a hybrid of smart and quippy comedic observations, a perceptive outlook on the complications of 20/30-something relationships in New York and genuine moments of heartache, the romantic comedy “Lola Versus” can’t seem to synthesize these elements into a fully satisfying experience by the end of its brief 89-minute running time.

While this summer certainly isn't lacking in blockbuster-sized visual wonders -- Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" and Christopher Nolan's IMAX-scale "The Dark Knight Rises" among them -- one the most dazzling movies of them all will be coming from an unexpected place. Marking his first film in nearly two decades, "Baraka" filmmaker Ron Fricke returns with "Samsara" and it's one that demands to be seen on the big screen.

The line between video games and movies continues to blur, as the medium has evolved considerably since the days when "Pong" was a revolution. Now, cinematic cut scenes, epic storylines and celebrity casting is pretty much the norm for the industry, who throw blockbuster-sized bags of money at games, with franchises as important to the console world as they are to Hollywood. And one only has to look at the Sony E3 presentation of "Beyond: Two Souls" to see just how much has changed.

At only 23 years old, Elizabeth Olsen's career is just beginning. As you know, she broke out in last year's cult drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and we've since seen her spread her wings a little bit. Earlier this year she did the horror thing with "Silent House" and later this year she'll pop up in a variety of films including the thriller "Red Lights," the dramedy "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" and her latest Sundance effort "Liberal Arts." But at the moment, she's stepping into her first period picture.

Well, when we least heard from "The Hobbit," word was not good. At CinemaCon back in April, the director unveiled ten minutes of footage in the new fancy pants 48fps format and attendees were mixed on the results to say the least. Nevertheless, Peter Jackson seems to be in high spirits in the latest video blog from the production that takes fans behind the scenes of Stone Street Studio, where the film has been shot when it's not on location.

Some horror fans may think that the 1980s was the best times for horror movies, but Hollywood's constant rummaging through the VHS bin of the era for remake material doesn't always sit well. While last year's "Fright Night" wasn't the worst offender of 1980s horror retelling (that would be "Nightmare on Elm Street" for the record), fans who took umbrage at that effort can take comfort that the original film's writer/director Tom Holland is finally back and ready to make his first theatrical feature since 1996's "Thinner."

Things Change: Raekwon Won't Be In ODB Biopic 'Dirty White Boy' Either; Will Forte Says 'MacGruber 2' Script Will At Least Be Written

For most of its early stages, it seemed like the biopic "Dirty White Boy" could do no wrong. First, Michael K. Williams (aka Omar from HBO's "The Wire") was cast to play the late rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard (or ODB) in the film, and then it looked like the actual members of the Wu-Tang Clan were going to appear as themselves in the movie. While this blew our collective minds, the fact that the Wu-Tang would play themselves in a movie more or less about themselves alongside Williams had a suspicious element of being too good to be true. When GZA, ODB's cousin and fellow founding member of the Wu-Tang, announced he wasn't going to appear in the film, those suspicions were realized.
