Yeah, yeah, this month's nearly over and all the best film news has come and gone: Sundance happened, the Golden Globes were half-boozy and half-boring as usual, and what got nominated for all the Oscars this season? (Yawn.) But while you were busy refreshing your Twitter feed anyway, another crop of essential titles hit the home-video shelves. Speaking of must-haves—in my first guest segment this month, a question arises that I now ask you: of all the DVDs and Blu-rays you currently own, what are your most coveted treasures that would have to be pried from your cold, dead hands?

For her last effort, the uncompromising western "Meek's Cutoff," the growing cachet of indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt allowed the director to cast some bigger names than she had worked with in the past, nabbing Bruce Greenwood, Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano to pad out the ensemble. And the experience seems to have been a positive one for Paul Dano, as reps for the actor have confirmed with The Playlist that he is reteaming with Reichardt for the director's next effort, the eco-terrorist film "Night Moves."

Last fall, a project burbled up to the surface entitled "College Republicans." Penned by Wes Jones -- and making the 2010 Black List of best unproduced screenplays -- the project was gaining some heat with Richard Linklater rumored for the director's chair and Shia LaBeouf apparently sniffing around the lead role. Well, nearly a year has passed and the film is coming together with a few changes to the lineup.

So, "Super 8" was pretty good, huh? With a couple of exceptions among The Playlist team (including this one, who hasn't seen it yet), it's getting very positive reactions, and from the looks of it better-than-expected box office, it's carrying over with general audiences as well, marking an almost unprecedented two blockbusters in a row that turned out to be decent. But is the competition going to sit back and let J.J. Abrams be feted as the king of the summer blockbuster season? Don't count on it.

Casey Affleck No Longer Part Of ProjectThis news will eventually illustrate some diversity (hang tight). During the junket for "Little Fockers" we asked director Paul Weitz if he was still intending on making "Another Bullshit Night In Suck City," a project announced in 2009 that would star Casey Affleck and Robert De Niro. All he basically said was, “I am still hoping to do that and I’m hoping to do it with Bob so it’s still something that I’m working on, it’s a terrific memoir.”
