Noah, Aronofsky
When it rains, it pours, except if you're "Noah" when rain means the imminent destruction of the planet, and that your only hope for survival is an ark you built yourself and populated with a pair of every animal on Earth. Was "Noah" the first hoarding story?

Silicon Valley
Earlier today it was revealed that producer Scott Rudin was bringing the nerd battle between Sega and Nintendo to the big screen with "Console Wars," roping in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to write and direct. If you want your fill of nerds and technology a little bit quicker, Rudin and HBO have a fix on the way with "Silicon Valley," but the most important name behind it is this one: Mike Judge.

Amazing Spider-Man 2
Back in 2012 when "The Amazing Spider-Man" was gearing up to hit theaters, the extent of Sony's marketing plan was revealed when someone went through all the trailers and clips that dropped in advance of the film, and put together a 25-minute reel of footage. So at this point, our only question is by which factor the advance spill of material for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will exceed its predecessor.

So, is Ti West's "The Sacrament" a found footage movie or a mockumentary? In fact, it's neither. "This is an after the fact made documentary. It’s like a Christopher Guest movie if you will," the director told Crave Online last fall. "It’s just very dark, and I don’t think anyone’s looked at Christopher Guest’s career and been like, 'Oh, found footage.' It’s always been like these weird mockumentaries, but mockumentary sounds good for comedy and not for anything else. So it’s just hard to label it necessarily but to me, having a tough time labeling something generally means something’s interesting."

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
When Will Ferrell and Adam McKay get together, they shoot a lot of material. And as fans of "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" already know, there was so much leftover material from the making of the comedy, the flimmakers were able to stitch together an entirely new movie, "Wake Up, Ron Burgudy: The Lost Movie," which was included as a DVD extra for the film. And, they've pretty much done the same thing again.

After making its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last April, it looks like rock doc “Mistaken for Strangers” is finally ready to make its theatrical debut. The film follows the popular indie rock band, The National, as they embark on an Eastern European tour, and was directed by the lead singer’s brother, Tom Berninger, a man who idolizes his older sibling and wants to do right by him, but quite obviously has some issues and shortcomings of his own.

The Wind Rises
Last year's Venice Film Festival saw a number of filmmakers push outside their comfort zone. Alfonso Cuarón made a 3D blockbuster set entirely in zero gravity. Kelly Reichardt made a thriller. Stephen Frears made a good movie. But no departure has been greater from a filmmaker than the one that Hayao Miyazaki takes with "The Wind Rises." The 72-year-old Studio Ghibli mastermind has made his name with fantastical fables from "Laputa: Castle In The Sky," through his mainstream breakthrough in the West with "Princess Mononoke" and the Oscar-nominated "Spirited Away" to his most recent picture, "Ponyo." But he's never directed a film like "The Wind Rises," a biographical period drama that has a few flights of fancy, but is otherwise a grounded and very personal tale of aircraft design, the oncoming storm, and doomed love. And yet, it's a film that wouldn't work in any medium but animation.

Frankie & Alice
Once upon a time, way, way back in 2010, Halle Berry was gunning for her second Oscar nomination (after winning for "Monster's Ball") with "Frankie & Alice." At the time, it was an indie film without a major studio behind it, but that didn't deter the actress, who was hoping her turn as a mentally ill woman would garner some attention. It didn't. Now here we are four years later, with the movie quietly headed to theaters.

With hundreds of films to choose from at numerous festivals throughout the year, standing out from the pack is no easy feat. But when it comes to "It Felt Like Love," it was a picture that resonated with us and others long after the Sundance Film Festival wrapped in 2013, with our Katie Walsh writing in her review that the film "marks the arrival of a new crop of talent to watch, behind the camera and in front." And with "It Felt Like Love" making its way to theaters soon, you'll see exactly what she was talking about.
