While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sharp turn in a career that remains both exciting and unpredictable. And for those of you who couldn't make it to park city, the first trailer has arrived.

The risk of going undercover (especially in the movies) is that you can go so deep that you can't come up again. And that threat forms the crux of "Sound Of My Voice" director Zal Batmanglij's latest tale of infiltration, "The East." Only this time, it's coming with a zeitgeist-worthy twist.

Joss Whedon's reputation is largely staked on his genre stuff from "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" to "Firefly" to, of course, "The Avengers" and his continued work in the Marvel universe. But it seems he's eager to prove he can do more than tell the stories of superheroes and the supernatural, and so he got some friends together and literally shot a movie in his backyard. The result? "Much Ado About Nothing."

Michael Bay,  Pain and Gain
Michael Bay is an auteur. He's a director with a unique visual style all his own and a grasp of cinematic language (by the balls) unlike anyone else in the business. In fact, he may be the cinematic auteur who most accurately represents our day and age in the film industry. Notice the use of the word “may” in that last sentence-- all we’re sayin’ is, an argument could be made for the much maligned (in certain circles) director’s relevance within a current climate that prizes bombast and spectacle. And there’s no one else who does bombast and spectacle better than Michael Bay (no arguments there, thank you very much). And he does so with such a unique style there there is never any doubt that you’re watching a Michael Bay film. Sure, watching his films is more like shotgunning a light domestic brew straight to the brain rather than sipping a fine vintage wine, but isn’t there a time and place for shotgunning beers? For sheer orgasmic visuals, there is no equal to Bay in the business. Period.
