It would be astounding if this year's Sundance Film Festival offered up as many goodies as did last year's, which gave us the world premieres of Love Is Strange, the new horror classic The Babadook and our number one in the best movies of 2014, Richard Linklater's Oscar-nominated Boyhood. But we're extremely hopeful—the fest is always good for surprises. (Don't expect lots of action movies, although we'd love to see another thriller like The Guest, also from 2014's edition.) In any case, we'll be in Park City, reviewing all the buzziest titles and unexpected sensations. Here's where the reviews will go live–bookmark us.

This year, the fest runs January 22–February 1, 2015.
