Generally, movies about the technology industry aren't very good and are very few, and outside of "The Social Network," there are even less based on real events. In fact, it kind of says something in certain dork circles, "The Pirates Of Silicon Valley" -- even with its totally '90s casting of Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs and Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates -- still stands beloved, even though it's also kind of not very good. But can "Jobs" challenge for the crown? Granted, it doesn't have to leap very high, but you may have to get past Ashton Kutcher as the founder of Apple.

Yes, the movies are a place to escape to find adventure, romance, laughter, tears and thrills but they are also a place to plunk down your kids for a couple hours of sweet relief. Every now and then, you'll be blessed by a Pixar or DreamWorks movie that manages to keep you entertained as well, and then there's the other stuff....

First, some background: back in 2011, director Dito Montiel hit Sundance with his Al Pacino and Channing Tatum starring cop flick "The Son Of No One," that depending on who you ask, was so bad it prompted a sea of walkouts or had a botched screening thanks to a projectionist error. Either way, the movie was not well received at Park City or otherwise, and so Montiel dusted himself off, and made another cop movie with Dwayne Johnson and Liam Hemsworth. No brainer to work right? Um, not so fast...

Drinking Buddies trailer
Marking a massive shift for mumblecore director Joe Swanberg, in that it looks like he has an actual budget and is working with people you've heard of, the real pleasant surprise around the upcoming "Drinking Buddies" is that it's actually just a plain, good movie. Catching it at SXSW, we said that "relationships are hard, our biology is essentially wired to be completely destructive to monogamy and without giving away exactly how things end up [the film] does a great job of exploring that friction." Intrigued?

Michael Cera, Crystal Fairy
It seems there's no stopping Michael Cera at the moment. Dude is on a tear with "Arrested Development" now back with a new season (in which he not only acted, but also co-wrote), a hit comedy in theaters ("This Is The End," in which he features in a great cameo) and various web efforts courtesy of JASH including shorts "Gregory Go Boom" and "Failure." And that's not mention his arthouse movies, including the upcoming "Magic Magic" (trailer here) and now "Crystal Fairy" (renamed for some reason to "Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus," as if that will make it more enticing to Joe Average movie dude).

The Spectacular Now
We've been keeping an eye on Miles Teller, ever since he impressed us opposite Nicole Kidman in the underappreciated "Rabbit Hole." And Hollywood has taken notice as well, with the actor's day planner getting increasing filled with gigs and projects, and he's got no less than three movies in post ("Get A Job," "Two Night Stand" and "Are We Dating Yet?") along with an imminent blockbuster as well ("Divergent"). But before all that is a movie that will surely bag him more phone calls.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues banner (skip)
And yes, "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" is still the balls, an unrelentingly quotable and flat out hilarious comedy that pretty much launched Will Ferrell and the rest of the Channel 4 News team. But nearly a full decade has passed, and much has changed, and as one bartender once said, possibly in Spanish: "Ladies can do stuff now and you're going to learn how to deal with it." And well, we'll just learn along with Ron and the gang as their back.

So what does Disney do when getting the first word out about their brand new princess movie? Get an article in USA Today featuring an interview with Kristen Bell? Yep, makes sense. Make sure that the very first teaser trailer looks like an "Ice Age" movie....uh, what?

This fall will mark fifty years since November 22, 1963 -- a date that continues to haunt American history. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed to mark an undeniable shift in the country, away from the positivity and hope that followed War War II, into a more fraught and frightened era with more wars overseas, social and political upheaval and much more. To mark the anniversary, there will undoubtedly be a ton of programming and films to choose from, and this is one of them.

In the age of the RED Camera and the Arri Alexa, it takes a certain kind of chutzpah to shoot your film in black-and-white on the kind of low-grade digital video camera your parents used in the eighties. Andrew Bujalski, however, isn’t like most directors and he’s given his awkward period comedy “Computer Chess” the lo-fi aesthetic it deserves. The first trailer has hit online in all its 1.33 glory.
