  • Fading Gigolo 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Jan, 2015

    Charming and lightweight, and Turturro and Allen have some great scenes together, but it's ultimately not enough to give the film some sort of momentum. Turturro's character is too much of a blank - a blank unrealistically getting paid to have sex with beauties like Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara - to give the film any kind of impact. Still, I enjoyed it and think Woody Allen should do more acting in other people's films and maybe not dedicate himself solely to getting his own male fantasies on film.

  • Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues 2013

    ★★½ Watched 04 Jan, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Disappointing, although it's worth it to see how they up the ante on the news anchor fight scene from the first film.

    This film might be under investigation for war crimes.

  • W.E. 2011

    ★★★ Watched 05 Sep, 2014

    A beautiful little bauble of a period piece about patience, sacrifice and finding love. This film was a bit over the top at times (ease up on that slo-mo, Madonna) but always sensitive in its portrayal of these two heroines try to reconcile their romantic expectations with harsh realities.

    A must-see for fashion junkies - lots of beautiful clothing abounds.
