Consider me a loyal member of the Clone Club - the name "Orphan Black" ( 8 p.m. Saturday, BBC America; 3.5 stars out of four ) fans gave themselves last year as their passion turned this sci-fi thriller into a cult hit. The BBC America series about a woman who discovers she is one of several clones was more than just a genre show. It remains one of TV's most compelling series, period. Creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett - watch for an Easter egg from them in the Season 2 premiere - have created an intricately plotted, intelligent conspiracy thriller.

Chicago native Carmen Marron was working as a guidance counselor in Phoenix when she decided to make a film addressing the experience of Latino teenagers. "Go For It," the dance drama that she wrote, directed and produced herself, was released earlier this year by Pantelion Films, a division of Lionsgate. It comes out on DVD Sept. 27. We caught up with Marron by phone from her home in L.A. to talk about her film projects and the state of Latino film. Why did you feel that it was important to set "Go For It" in Chicago?

* (out of four) The tagline for "The Bag Man" is "The cat's in the bag. " A cat is not actually in the bag. And it takes almost the entire movie to find out what's in the bag, which -- spoiler alert! -- you can pretty much guess if you remember the answer to Brad Pitt asking, "What's in the box?" "Inspired by" Marie-Louise von Franz's story "The Cat" and re-written from a script called "Motel" by James Russo ... wait, let's pause a second. Russo also wrote a movie called "The Box. " This guy clearly likes transportable modes of storage.

By Dana Moran | RedEye Matt Damon may have cut his leading-man action teeth as Jason Bourne in "The Bourne Identity," but after three flicks, the two have broken up. Or, rather, Matt found out via the Web that Jeremy Renner was stepping in as a new lead character for "The Bourne Legacy," according to the January issue of GQ. Was Matt getting too old to be Bourne, or will Jeremy fall on his face as new guy Aaron Cross? There's just one way to decide: a faceoff. damoran@tribune.com | @redeyedana Brawn Matt: He's been an awfully imposing...

Add “identity theft” to the list of things that are fun to watch in movies, but probably are a nightmare in real life. (This list also includes jumping down waterfalls, hacking someone's head off and kissing Johnny Depp. He just kinda looks to me like he doesn't floss, is all.) Unlike “Identity Thief,” nobody's going to make a blockbuster movie starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman about checking your credit report. But you should do it anyway. Here's how to avoid getting your identity stolen out here in real, non-Hollywood life.
