    Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues 2013

    ★★★ Rewatched 26 Jul, 2015

    Face-Ache Feature:

    A film that makes me smile from start to finish but never actually laugh out loud.

    Ron is more of a jerk in this one. Champ and Brian Fantana seem to be sidelined somewhat but Brick's burgeoning love story with Chani is delightful (even if you do realise you're basically watching two low-functioning, mentally handicapped people express their feelings).

    Thank jeebus for Letterboxd. For years I've been doing the "Bond Marathon" before the latest 007 adventure. For years I thought I was the only sad fucker who endured all twenty something films in preparation for the next slice of kiss kiss, bang bang. There's a few that have more or less concluded this little ritual, but seeing as Skyfall ain't out until 26th October I thought I'd slowly work my way through them, starting now.

    So... Dr No. The…
