Get your $97 iPhone 3GS at Wal-Mart while you can. The new one is just around the corner, and you'll probably find a prototype lying on a park bench anyway. Plus: Facebook's privacy changes explained.
A one-time tennis pro, Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) was used to falling just short in his life. But when he befriends Tom Hewett (Matthew Goode) and marries his sister, Chloe (Emily Mortimer), the doors are opened to the kind of money and success that Chris has once only dreamed of. Chris should have settled for happiness, but he is torn by his attraction to Tom's impossibly beautiful and sensual fiance, Nola (Scarlett Johansson). The attraction turns to an obsession that forces Chris to make a critical choice. Now everything in his life hinges on if Chris falls short again...and whether or not his luck runs out. "Match Point" is a drama about ambition, the seduction of wealth, love, and sexual passion. Perhaps most importantly, however, the story reveals the huge part luck plays in events, refuting the comforting misconception that more of life is under our control than really is.

Bridget Carey is filing in for Justin Yu on a show where we weigh the pros and cons of an actual real-life Jurassic Park -- because there's an Austalian billionaire who's noodling the idea. We'll also check out some of Jeff's interview with Broken Lizard stars Jay Chandrasehkar and Kevin Heffernan about their new film, The Babymakers.
Based on the word "Reflections" and created for an online contest, this is a sort of art film short based on recollections of bits of dreams and scenes from my life. A twisty bit of tidbits of video put together to weave a possible story line. Don't look for too much meaning here but you should get that hair on the back of your neck standing up sort of feeling. It does have a creepy vibe, just go with it. It's only a dream. Sean McHenry Deep Blue Edit
We thought all meet-ups sourced on OKCupid were considered "blind dates," but the company just took it a step further with Crazy Blind Date, a feature that lets you donate paid "Kudos" to help your new "friend" find love. This plus Moviepass's Netflix for movie theaters, Delta's new iPad app, and how much it costs to outsource your job to China.
A short story about two determined men. A dark night in Glasgow signals trouble for a car thief who cannot believe his luck when he finds the car of his dreams. Stealing it, however, is not going to be as easy as he first assumed, as his feeble attempts alert the car park's security guard who decides to keep a watchful eye on him.
While Apple has officially announced an announcement, we don't know what it is. So we speculate anyway. Sue us. Will you pay $2 for a new character that indicates sarcasm? Most of us won't, either. We also discuss the meaning of privacy in search engines and Quicken hides it's online service behind Mint, which oddly makes Natali hungry.
There's something odd about Hot Chip. Some fracture between conception and actuality that makes them all the more intriguing. Ostensibly Hot Chip sign up to the Hip-Hop dream as espoused by MTV Cribs and presumably as lived by, ooh, Pharrell Williams? They just seem to have some problems translating it to Wandsworth, SE London, is all. In fact they seem to have trouble squaring it with the equal, but to some extent opposite, influence of, say, Bill Callahan from Smog. Or Lambchop. Or Crystal Gayle. So, instead of doing the obvious thing and working out what sort of band they are going to be, they conclude that they will be all of them at once. And then they'll make it all in a room smaller than the box room at your Mum's house. With whatever's lying around. That is, whatever's lying around - toy trumpets, kazoos, blah. This to conform to a cherished idea of Brian Wilson's that, in the studio, anything goes.
