If you’ve ever heard one of those viral Internet stories about Bill Murray crashing some friend’s party or just being an all-around awesome dude, you might already be thinking of the timeless actor as a bit of a saint.

While “The Social Network” proved to feature plenty of analog human interaction, the joke of a film that fringed on that social barrenness was left dangling as a concept. Director Jason Reitman pleasurably plucks the idea and crafts a wonderful, sobering and thought provoking ensemble piece analyzing how social media and modern technology affects human relationships for both the better and worse.

The long awaited sequel to 2005′s “Sin City” is finally arriving in theaters and while “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” has style in spades, the time gap has hurt the impact of this sequel.
“The Giver” takes place in a utopian future of sorts and follows Jonas as he reaches adulthood and is chosen to learn the secrets of the old world from Jeff Bridges’ character.
