June DVDs
My appetite for finding and devouring new music is so voracious that I have to empty my hard drive annually just to make room for more MP3s, yet it wasn't until my wife bought me a turntable that I became one of those obsessive, fetishistic record collectors right out of "High Fidelity."

There ain't nothing like some bad behavior to kick off a stellar weekend. You know -- by cutting class, or taking a walk of shame, or going to work hungover on Friday morning. Or, as the movie stars like to do it, by killing some dudes, pulling off a bank job, stealing a dog, and implanting a jellyfish in a teenage girl's body. Succumb to your more depraved instincts with the second installment of the "G.I. Joe" franchise; Stephenie Meyer's latest paranormal teen love fantasy; Tyler Perry's rendition of "Unfaithful;" a doc about the ultimate turn to the dark side in "The Shining;" a British heist film; and a bevy of Philistine-filled indies. And let us know your favored depiction of sin in the comments below!

Review: Quentin Dupieux's Latest Is More Enjoyably Weird Than 'Wrong'

Quentin Dupieux directs like David Lynch. On mushrooms. With a head injury. After reading a lot of Haruki Murakami. We promise we mean this in the best way possible, to both Dupieux and those struggling with traumatic brain injury. There are elements of the surrealist auteur's work in the off-kilter comedy "Wrong," from the sometimes dissonant, creepy score to the juxtaposition of the the mundane and the truly odd. But comparisons to the "Lost Highway" director aside, Dupieux is a filmmaker all his own whose mind clearly works in ways that most others' can't or won't. He embraces the weird with such glee and abandon, that it's hard not to shrug your shoulders, smile and join the group hug.

So a movie about a guy who loses his dog who gets help from someone named Master Chang played by William Fichnter? Yep, that sounds about right for Quentin Dupieux. The director who broke out with his deliriously odd tire killer movie "Rubber" returns with "Wrong." And for anyone seeking something way off the beaten path, it will feel so right.

Quentin Dupieux earned accolades and praise for his decidedly weird "Rubber" a couple of years back, a bizarre tale about a serial killer that also happens to be a tire. The undoubtedly original film earned the director a new base of fans, as well as encouraging him to be even weirder his next time out. The result is "Wrong" and as the first trailer bears out, it is as odd as you think.

Sundance Review: Less 'Wrong' Than Bad, Quentin Dupieux's Followup To 'Rubber' Proves Him To Be A Half-Hit Wonder

Received at film fests and among cult cinema fans with the giddy glee of an inside joke, Quentin Dupieux's "Rubber" was a film more celebrated than ultimately worthy of celebration. Dupieux's piss-take on '70s killer-car horror (and, by extension, all cinema) as a psychic rubber tire self-motivated itself through the American West, sporadically killing people telekinetically, felt to me like a short film larded up with unrequired bulk -- or, as I may have tweeted at the time, " 'Rubber' rolls along for a while, starts wobbling, then goes flat." "Wrong," premiering at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, was a chance to see what Dupieux could really do. And what he can really do is not direct.

So far, everything seems so right about Quentin Dupieux's "Wrong." The director behind the bonkers "Rubber" has his follow-up ready to go, with a premiere at Sundance just a few weeks away. On the heels of the awesome trailer, we now have our first scene from the movie, and as expected, Dupieux is keeping the mysteries of the flick under wraps for now.

One of the most engagingly strange movies of the past year was the killer flick "Rubber." Brought to life by Quentin Dupieux, the film was a true original, telling the tale of a car tire (yes, a car tire) with telepathic, muderous powers. The movie was a big genre hit and put Dupieux on the map. Well, he's back once again and headed to Sundance with a brand new film.

He managed to make a film about a killer tire something completely surprising and unexpected, and while all director Quentin Dupieux would tell us about his next film "Wrong" is that it's "about a missing dog...But the movie’s really funny" we're pretty damn curious to see where he takes that idea.

Actor Also In Talks For 'Wrong,' Quentin Dupieux's Follow-Up To 'Rubber'Is there anything William Fichtner can't do? The longtime character actor basically spruces up whatever project he winds up participating in, even if it's playing something as ludicrous as the devil's right hand man in "Drive Angry 3D." Christopher Nolan realized that man brings gravity to any scene he's in, which is why he used him for the few minutes of screen time he had in the opening heist sequence of "The Dark Knight"; he needed someone who could believably stand up to the Joker, if only for a few moments.
