Francis suspects Cesare of being the murderer, and starts spying on him and Dr. Caligari.

It Happened One Night (Criterion Collection) Blu-ray It's a busy week for new releases of 2014 movies, but I have to start with the one new release this week I hope all of you at least give a brief moment of your time.

22 Jump Street For whatever reason I thought this had already been released, but I guess not. Nevertheless, here's the sequel to 21 Jump Street, a movie that's filled with jokes about how it's a sequel to 21 Jump Street. Go ahead, buy it, I'm sure those jokes will never get old.

It’s already showing in the States, but for those of us here in the UK looking to get a sneak peek, Disney has released a new clip from its animated Marvel Comics adaptation Big Hero 6, which we have for you right here…
See Also: Read our review of Big Hero 6 here
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech »

Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love »

This week: We drag our sorry ass back to Sin City, order up more Jump Street, and reluctantly head Into the Storm. ► After a certain amount of time, some sequels fall into .why bother?. Had Sin City: A Dame To Kill For come out a few years after the classic original, it would have had a much better fate. But nine years? What was original and cutting edge the first time around felt a bit moldy, with Frank Miller adapting some of his »

Here was a depressing week that hit us over the summer, and yes, we’ll be trying to keep up with posting these better (and catch up in the first place). Consider the official score the sum total of the three film experience. The Giver was the most depressing, and is hitting on Blu-Ray now (and with some nice bonuses), but the other two are as worthy of a pass as any films this year.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was basically everything you feared. There may be some value here for the younger audience members, but overall it left what potential it had untouched, opting for the most boring effort at spectacle for spectacle’s sake. It isn’t interesting enough to kickstart a new push of toys that anyone will buy. If you have to watch it with the kids, there are a couple of decent moments.
The Giver was just too overworked, »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New on DVD and Blu-ray
"22 Jump Street"
Can Chris Miller and Phil Lord make anything entertaining? When "21 Jump Street" the movie was announced, it seemed utterly ludicrous, if not downright insulting. Yet here we are enjoying the sequel, digging on the continued doofy adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum). What's next, a dazzling movie about Legos?!
"20,000 Days on Earth"
This documentary about writer and musician Nick Cave is just as weird and wonderful as its subject. It's a must-see for fans of Cave's oeuvre, but even if you don't know a Boy Next Door from a Bad Seed, you'll get a kick out of this strange film. Featuring appearances by Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, Warren Ellis, and Blixa Bargeld.
"The Wind Rises"

If Sin City: A Dame To Kill For was an object lesson in the dangers of bringing out a sequel years after the original, age doesn’t seem to have wearied the need for Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas. The idiots returned two decades after their original misadventures and America seemed quite happy to have them back, if the studio estimated $38 million opening weekend for Dumb And Dumber To is anything to go by.Though the sequel will have to go some to match the original’s successful run, it’s a solid start for directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who have weathered years of speculation and frustrated attempts to make this happen. And at least it means we can now all put Dumb & Dumberer out of our collective noggins as the “other” Dumb film.Disney’s Big Hero 6 couldn’t quite overcome the new challenger, though it made »
Shailene Woodley (Divergent) is set to join the upcoming Edward Snowden biopic being directed by Oliver Stone. The actress is said to be in final negotiations for lead female role in the movie opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), who will play Edward Snowden.
The film is based on the book The Snowden Files by Luke Harding which depicts the Snowden’s move from Hawaii to Hong Kong where he handed over top-secret Nsa documents to documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Pre-production has already begun in Germany and the film is set to start shooting in January. The Snowden Files has not official release date although it is slated to arrive some time in 2016.

Nearly 20 years later, a sequel to Dumb and Dumber finally arrives in theaters this weekend.Playing at 3,153 locations, Dumb and Dumber To could be in a close race for first place against holdovers Big Hero 6 and Interstellar.Relativity Media is also releasing Beyond the Lights at 1,789 locations, while Birdman is expanding nationwide after four strong weeks in limited release. It's also a busy weekend at the specialty box office, with Saving Christmas, Rosewater, Foxcatcher and The Homesman all debuting.Dumb and Dumber arrived at the end of 1994, which capped a year in which Jim Carrey went from unknown to A-list in remarkably quick fashion. Earlier that year, Carrey starred in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Mask, which earned $72.2 million and $119.9 million, respectively. Dumb and Dumber would prove to be an even bigger hit with $127.2 million, or the equivalent of over $240 million today.For the next decade, Jim Carrey »

Levitt’s casting as Snowden was announced on Monday. The casting for the film, which will follow the former Nsa contractor as he leaks information on the U.S. government’s mass surveillance programs, was revealed by the film’s backers to the U.K. Guardian.
Stone, whose past films include Platoon and JFK, purchased the rights to The Snowden Files, by Guardian journalist Luke Harding and Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena’s Time of the Octopus. The 68-year-old filmmaker has reportedly already put together a script based on both writings.
According to Stone, Snowden’s journey “is one of the greatest stories of our time.”
Stone’s The Snowden Files is slated to begin production in January in Munich, Open Road Films and Endgame Entertainment told the Guardian.
Sneak Peek new images of actress Eva Green ("Sin City: A Dame to Kill For") posing for the 16th edition of the "Campari" calendar, titled "Mythology Mixology" celebrating the company's most popular cocktails:
About her film career, Green said "...there are simply not enough good roles for women, and for the last 20 years it has been so male-dominated and continues to be so."
In 2006, Green was awarded the 'BAFTA' Rising Star Award.

By the pricking of my thumbs, a holiday-themed list feature this way comes. Yep, All Hallow's Eve is almost upon us, and while the temptation to do some kind of "Before I Go To Sleep"-themed feature was a great one, we thought we should put together something appropriately spooky to get you in the mood for tomorrow night's festivities. So, during a break from making our costumes for the annual Playlist Halloween party (popular choices this year: the Babadook, Kevin Feige, Alexander from "Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," box-office receipts for "Sin City 2," a GamerGater), we've been considering the state of recent horror. We're now fifteen years into the new millennium, and while the horror genre is as ever responsible for more dross than most, it's also been an exciting time for scary movie fans, with a new wave of filmmakers emerging from »

Critics did not like it. Audiences did not like it. And yet, thanks most likely to its status as one of the few spooky flicks to enjoy during the Halloween season, Ouija took the box office crown with an estimated $20 million. It was still not good news for an overall dipping box office trend, as second place went to the new (and much better received) John Wick. Keanu Reeves made good with an estimated $14.2 million start and good word of mouth, but along with Ouija had no reported budget numbers, so whether Reeves finally has a winner on his hands is undetermined.
Fury (estimated $13 million), Gone Girl (estimated $11.1 million), and The Book of Life (estimated $9.8 million) all stayed in roughly the same positions, if only pushed down by new releases, but only Gone Girl is a winner and the highest earner in the current top ten. Fury and The Book of Life »
