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."

Now freshly minted for the Cannes Film Festival, you can feel good about getting down and dirty with Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring."

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.

So Keanu Reeves has made a directorial debut that on paper, certainly sounds intriguing. Lots of action has been promised, Tiger Hu Chen (one of the stuntmen on "The Matrix" films) and Iko Uwais of "The Raid" are among the folks throwing fists and feet in the flick, and Reeves seems to certainly have been pushing himself. And now the first teaser trailer and...well...

AC/DC probably said it best when they sang, "It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n roll." But really, that observation could apply to any artist in any genre, living out of a backpack and guitar case, trying to make a living playing music. It's not an easy life, particularly if you're trying to raise a family or stick to your own distinct musical vision despite its difference from mainstream tastes, and it's something that's explored in the upcoming documentary "Folk."
