Steven Price Ant-Man
With a BAFTA win under his belt last night, and a potential Oscar on the horizon, thirty-six year old rising composer Steven Price couldn't ask for a better arrival in Hollywood. His work on "Gravity" is already career-defining stuff — not bad for only the third feature film composing credit to his name — and it's not a surprise he's already being tapped from all quarters for more gigs. He's already set to tune up David Ayer's forthcoming WWII flick "Fury," and now Price is going superhero for Edgar Wright.

So much television, so little time. One show I've been meaning to catch up with is BBC's "Peaky Blinders," the gangster drama set in the days after World War I that follows the deeds of the dangerous kingpin Tommy Shelby, played by none other than Cillian Murphy. That's right, Cillian Murphy is leading a TV show and I'm somehow not watching it. Well, it looks like some fresh incentive has arrived for everyone to start catching up.

A Teacher
One of the more striking little flicks of last year was “A Teacher,” Hannah Fidell's debut film about a teacher having a liaison with one of her male pupils. It wasn't perfect (read our review), but it was a good piece of work about a difficult subject (see also: “Notes on a Scandal”). And now we're going to see that story unfold on a bigger scale.

True Detective
Firstly, if you're not watching HBO's "True Detective," you're doing it wrong. One of the best things going on TV right now — if not the best, period — the drama series has proven to be fantastically written and richly entertaining, with a murder mystery woven across a couple of decades, in a case that continues to haunt the detectives played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. But this past weekend's episode "Who Goes There" (full recap here) kicked things up a notch.
