Parkland, Efron
Next week, the nation will remember one of the most tragic moments in its history, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Still discussed, debated and argued to this day, whether or not it was Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone or a vast network of people operating in a conspiracy for unseen forces, lives were changed dramatically that day, not just for the Kennedys, but also for everyone on the ground in Dallas. And the new film "Parkland" explores the array of characters who will never forget that afternoon in Dealey Plaza.

Valhalla Rising
Nicolas Winding Refn's haunting, mostly silent and meditative Viking movie “Valhalla Rising” came out all the way back in 2009. In our review way back when, we described it as akin to “Terrence Malick making a horror movie,” and that’s kinda not far off the mark (maybe Kubrick making a twisted nature movie too).

Kill Your Darlings
Fueled by the wild rhythms of jazz music, driven by ideals to break the status quo and forever pushing the boundaries of literature and poetry (while blurring the lines between the two), the Beats transformed a generation. And their story continues to captivate, with a new light being shown on an interesting early chapter in their careers, in John Krokidas' "Kill Your Darlings." With the movie headed to theaters, we've got a pretty sweet prizepack and some runner up swag for some lucky readers.

The world ended, cinematically speaking, a couple times this summer with Edgar Wright laying waste to it with pod people in "The World's End," and the rapture arriving in Seth Rogen's "This Is The End." Both provided ample opportunity for comic actors to riff on the demise of themselves and the planet, but only one was operating on meta, self-referential level that added a twist to the proceedings. We're talking about the latter picture, and it's now on home video, and if you haven't snatched up a copy yet, you might want to hold for just a moment in snapping on up....

'The Kings Of Summer'
Summer is now, sadly, a distant memory and we'll be honest—we're hard pressed to favorably remember anything from the multiplex. But luckily for those who were a bit more adventurous and sought out movies that weren't sequels, prequels or CGI fests, there was still some small treasures to be found. One that certainly left an impression was the feature debut from Jordan Vogt-Roberts, "The Kings Of Summer." If somehow you didn't manage to catch the film, the good news is you've got a chance to now, and happily we can help you out.

The Bling Ring,
Why do kids want to live like celebrities? There's no definitive answer to that question, but Sofia Coppola explores the mindset of that kind of youth in "The Bling Ring." Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival before hitting theaters this summer, you might have missed the writer/director's take on a culture obsessed with brands and fame. And whether you're now catching up or if you're a fan of the movie, we've got a pretty great prize pack for some lucky readers.

The East, Alexander Skarsgård
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for you to pick up the latest releases on DVD and Blu-ray. While you could just pick up the latest blockbuster—“World War Z,” in this case—the stylish, though divisive, eco-terrorist thriller “The East” would be a more worthwhile purchase. And if you haven't seen the movie, you might want to skip this part—a look at the alternate endings from the Zal Batmanglij-helmed film arrived online that show the different paths the film could have taken.

A.C.O.D. Adam Scott
Sometimes movies need to sell us on their premise or the visual ambition, or provide some other hook to get us interested. Then there are movies like the upcoming comedy "A.C.O.D.," which with an ensemble led by Adam Scott and featuring Catherine O'Hara, Richard Jenkins, Jane Lynch, Clark Duke, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amy Poehler and Jessica Alba, has the kind of cast we'd watch in anything. Just tell us where to show up. Speaking of showing up, not only do have some exclusive photos and clips from the film but those of you in New York City may be in for an extra treat.

From Up On Poppy Hill
Although it's causing something of a storm in Japan, where wartime matters are still controversial, “The Wind Rises,” the latest film from animation legend Hayao Miyazaki (read our review) is already a huge critical and commercial hit, as is par for the course for the great director (if case you hadn’t heard, he’s retiring). His son, Goro Miyazaki, has always been given a much rougher ride with Japanese audiences, often laboring in the shadow of his illustrious father. “From Up on Poppy Hill” marked a serious turning point though, picking up a slew of good reviews in Japan, the U.S. and Europe, as well as a healthy box-office take and the Animation of the Year award at the Japan Academy Prize (the Japanese Oscars.)
