      A young woman named Amelia (Liane Balaban) comes to New Orleans in search of her missing sister, Muriel (Shalom Harlow). She stays with her distracted aunt Lois (Ally Sheedy) and young niece (Josephine Martin).

      With the help of Lois's neighbor, a run-down, retired private-eye named Bill (Clarence Williams III), Amelia focuses on the only clue to Muriel's disappearance: a computer with a wiped-out hard drive.

      With Bill's help, Amelia makes online contact with a drawling, philosophically inclined young man calling himself Eddie Mars--a man reachable only in the disembodied realm of cyberspace.

      It's evident that Eddie Mars has had some contact with the missing woman, but the nature of their relationship is unclear.

      As Amelia tries to track Eddie down, other New Orleanians enter the picture: a termite control expert (David Arquette) holed up in a tented house; his brother, Tom, an accident-prone fireman (Karl Geary); and a recently widowed music teacher, Hannah (Gloria Reuben).

      There's also a trio of squatters (Isabel Gillies, Nic Ratner and Quintron) who had been living with Muriel, and local R&B legend Ernie K-Doe, presiding over his Mother-in-Law Lounge.

      Set just a few moments into the future, "Happy Here and Now" hinges on an around-the-corner sci-fi premise, involving a computer technology that allows people to project alternate identities over the Internet. But the movie's dreamlike aspect emerges from real people and places. As various characters cross paths, a larger story takes shape-a chronicle of isolated souls searching for connection in a contemporary wilderness.

          Sunny Malhotra (Vivek Oberoi) is a 28 year old writer who has carved a name for himself as a popular agony uncle, named Gyan Guru, writing for the Times of Hindustan. Sunny also managed to bag a prestigious screenplay writing project for the most happening film director, Karan Johar. A bit of a cynic, he believes he is a self-made man and that whatever he has achieved in life is due to his own hard work and nobody else's. His cynicism is extended to his views about marriage to his fiancé Jenny (Ayesha Takia) and to the festival of Diwali too. Just as Sunny is cynical about life, Michael Burnett (Boman Irani) is optimistic about it. 51 year old Michael is a simple minded man, almost childlike and has recently landed job as a pizza delivery boy at Mummy's Pizza. Michael has sort of an inclination to lose every job he has ever had in 2 days flat. This time, however, he vows to keep this one no matter what. On the eve of Diwali, Sunny has loads of stuff to do and very little time to do it. He has to meet his screenplay deadline, he has to get rid of Pandey (Saurabh Shukla) his irritatingly intrusive next door neighbor and he's got to avoid his editor's telephone calls who is livid that he's bunking work. But more importantly he needs to get Jenny out of the way because he has a date with Maya (Mahima Chaudhary), a South Indian superstar who he has been in love with since as long as he can remember. In this confusion, Sunny forgets that there is no food in his bachelor pad and orders a pizza that Michael is given the task of delivering. And what Michael delivers to Sunny is so much more than just a pizza. Sunny is home delivered life's simple lessons right to his doorstep.

                "Wasn't That a Time" (1981) took a winsome look at the seemingly last reunion of the legendary folk group The Weavers. Nearly two decades later, The Weavers are surprisingly back - now well into their 70s and 80's, yet as outspoken as ever at Carnegie Hall, and featuring many of folk music's leading lights, to honor an unsung American hero: music impresario Harold Leventhal.

They create experimental cyborgs in an attempt to take over the world. Eventually, Hongo is turned into a cyborg — Masked Rider 1 — but soon regains his self-awareness. Realizing that he is now controlled by evil, Hongo escapes. Shocker views Hongo as a traitor and dispatches a new, nearly identical cyborg — Masked Rider 2 — to destroy him. But they're too evenly matched and their duel ends in a draw. Growing impatient, Shocker sends two new cyborgs — Snake and Cobra — to kill them both. KAMEN RIDER THE FIRST is a new adaptation of the popular original manga created by Shotaro Ishinomori.
