I liked the film, and this will be a positive review. So if you want to hate on it, you can do so in the comments or just ignore this. Still with me? Awesome! Allied is a 2016 feature drama, war, romance movie written by Steven Knight (Locke, Burnt, Eastern Promises) and directed by Robert […]

The Vicious Kind starring Adam Scott: Humanly Amoral, Emotional and Funny

Share

  Oh, how Adam Scott (High Crimes, Leap Year , A.C.O.D, Friends with Kids, The Overnight) has grown on me. I’ve never not liked the guy, but this was definitely one of the more challenging roles he has taken on. On the surface, the premise of the movie might sound like a typical romantic comedy. […]

Navigating the Heart starring Tim Matheson and Jaclyn Smith

How I love a good old-fashioned romance film with a happy ending! Well, if you want a more expensive, sadder yet less realistic seaman falls in love with a city woman film, watch Message in a Bottle. It has Kevin Costner, Paul Newman and Robin Wright, and is beautiful to look at. It’s also nicely […]
