*** (out of four)   In the first few minutes of “Tyrannosaur,” a man kicks a dog to death, and another man urinates on his sleeping wife. If you're someone who goes to the movies to have a good time, there's the exit. Their loss. The feature directing debut from actor Paddy Considine (“Submarine,” “In America”), who also wrote the script, shines as an uncompromising character study about people's propensity for faith in the face of adversity, and anger that quickly transitions into cruelty.

Updated 1-11: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new TV series "HitRecord On TV" doesn't premiere on Pivot network until Jan. 18, but the network announced Saturday that it has been renewed for a second season.

** (out of four) My wife and I just adopted my in-laws' 7-year-old dog, an extremely lovable miniature dachshund named Rosie. I am exactly the right person to find warmth in “Darling Companion,” in which Beth (Diane Keaton) rescues a 7-year-old dog from the side of a snowy Colorado road. A year later, the dog runs off when Beth's husband Joseph (Kevin Kline), a self-absorbed spine surgeon, pays more attention to the person on the other end of his cell phone than the pooch, dubbed Freeway, sprinting after a deer.

Many people want to believe that what they see in movies is real. In "Don Jon," buff Jersey guy Jon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) prefers his one-way, fantasy-driven relationship with porn to the two-way intimacy of countless one-night stands and a bond with Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), who believes romantic comedies reflect how real love should be. Opening Sept. 27, Gordon-Levitt's feature debut as a writer and director aims to show that both characters need to separate what they see on screen from the more complex scenarios in front of them.

*** (out of four) The makers of “Premium Rush” could have cast Bow Wow as a bike messenger and Ray Liotta as a cop, and still delivered its package, generically and according to protocol. Thankfully, this snappy little action flick from director/co-writer David Koepp (“Ghost Town”) prefers to zig and zag. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, an actor without the word generic in his vocabulary, plays bike messenger Wilee; ever-strange Michael Shannon jazzes up every line as Bobby Monday, a cop whose gambling debts intersect with one of Wilee's deliveries.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt may now be starring in the time travel film “Looper,” but the actor has long made giant leaps look easy. From “10 Things I Hate About You” to “Mysterious Skin” to “Brick” to “(500) Days of Summer” to “Inception,” Gordon-Levitt never does the same thing twice. In the last year alone, his screen roles have had him battle cancer (“50/50”), support Batman (“The Dark Knight Rises”) and pedal for his life (“Premium Rush”).  In writer-director Rian Johnson's exceptional “Looper,” opening...

His latest role as an intrepid bike messenger in "Premium Rush," out Friday, might show off yet another side of the ever-rising star. But which JGL do you prefer? Take our quick quiz to find out if you've fallen for the romantic version, or you're all about the drama.

Dennis Joseph isn't the guy he appears to be. The West Rogers Park native works a 9-to-5 job for a marketing company. Five o'clock stubble crowds his smile. His shirt is starched, pressed and clean. He's your average Joe. But you wouldn't know it this sticky afternoon. His other side surfaces. Joseph is an aspiring director. The 29-year-old is putting the final touches on his first piece, a web series-turned-TV pilot titled “Oh, Henry.” He hopes to have the all-volunteer, shoe-string-budget production completed by the first week of...
