TGITDNMAR: (8/1/14)

Hooray for Lucy! All hail Luc Besson and Scarlett Johansson! Their film’s trouncing of Hercules this weekend gives me a smidgen of hope that audiences actually care about things like story and inventiveness. Having seen neither movie I’m unable to […]

TGITDNMAR: (7/18/14)

TGITDNMAR: (6/29/14)

With apologies to the two interesting indie relationship films getting limited releases, Begin Again and They Came Together, I’m going to turn the focus of this week’s edition of TGITDNMAR to the world of action films. I’ll be looking at […]
