We're only three actors in, and "Black Mass" is already serving up an abundance of dudes we really like. When he's not falling over backwards into Helena Bonham Carter's closet for costumes, Johnny Depp does some of his most fascinating work, while Joel Edgerton usually owns whatever he's in. And with the pair already signed up for the gangster pic "Black Mass," they're letting one more major talent into their midst.

Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza
Sometimes the chemistry on a set works just perfectly, and you can just tell the cast had a ball making the movie. Such is the case with “Life After Beth,” Jeff Baena’s directorial debut, which premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival. The zombie comedy has a lively cast led by Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, with comic talents Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines and Paul Reiser offering zany support.

Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza
In the last decade, left-of-center zombies have become so ubiquitous that we’re bordering on critical mass, with as many spoofs being released as straight-ahead horror renditions. As with anything reaching its cultural saturation point, it’s the singer, not the song, as the results have been all over the spectrum, from the brilliant (“Shaun of the Dead”) to the forgettable (“Warm Bodies”). Despite some fine talent both behind and in front of the camera, “Life After Beth” has trouble distinguishing itself from the army of flesh-eating peers. The film starts promisingly, opening with a foreboding shot of a girl wandering through Griffith Park, scored with ominous guitar squalls courtesy of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, who compose the film’s atmospheric score. As brief an introduction as it may be, it sets the tone for a film much weirder and more interesting than the one that follows.

Life After Beth, Aubrey Plaza
Funny people doing funny things... It's not all gritty, kitchen sink drama at Sundance this year, with some good (supernatural) laughs to be found.

The To Do-List
For those of us who came of age in the '90s it has not been uncommon to notice a certain nostalgia creeping up on you these last few years. At first maybe you were happy to revisit some old songs or movies you hadn't heard/seen in a while but before you knew it, pop culture artifacts you didn't particularly even care for at the time seemed to bring back fond memories of a decade that now seems oh so far away (Gin Blossoms were actually a pretty good band, you guys). The new sex comedy "The To Do List," is set distinctively in the summer of 1993 and is one of the first films to transport us back to the pre-internet age of Coolio and "Clueless." If it seems too soon to start thinking about the '90s as a period piece, consider this: "Dazed and Confused" was set in 1976 and released in 1993 which means that we're now further from 1993 (when "The To Do List" is set) today than we were from the distance in Richard Linklater's stoner, coming-of-age classic. Yes, it's time to be nostalgic about the '90s.

The To Do List Aubrey Plaza
It isn't often said or appreciated, but it actually takes a bit of bravery and self-confidence for an actress to get up on the big screen and makes themselves sexually awkward, inexperienced and/or unattractive on the big screen. In an industry where looks hold sway and where judgment comes with your morning latte, we have to give some props to Aubrey Plaza for willing to go the distance. But it looks like folks will be happy she did.
