James Mangold joins the craze of directors making the crossover into comic book films with Hugh Jackman taking center-stage as the most popular mutant, The Wolverine.  This one promises to be the Wolverine movie we’ve always wanted, so expectations are high.  Not one to break tradition, Woody Allen submits his yearly film installment with Cate Blanchett-starring-drama Blue Jasmine.  Blanchett has been drawing some early praises for her performance under Woody’s direction.  Aubrey Plaza drives a raunchy coming-of-age comedy in The To Do List  and Wes Bentley makes a welcome return to acting in The Time Being.

Are you an achiever? Initially well-versed in English literature, Nicole picked up movie quotes as a second tongue to marry together her deep-rooted appreciation for language and film. When not tallying Brad Pitt's countless and marvelously resonant instances of on-screen eating, your very own Remy is experimenting with exciting new recipes from Gusteau's cookbook. And when I have some more spare time? What am I doing? I'm quietly judging film. A disagreement, you say? Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
