Allied Movie Review: Brad Pitt and Marion Cottilard in an Engaging Robert Zemeckis Spy Romance

Something’s Gotta Give starring Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson & Keanu Reeves: How A Romantic Comedy Ought to Be

Share

I’m a huge fan of writer/director Nancy Meyers. It started with What Women Want (starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt), a blast of a romantic comedy with fantasy elements. It’s one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, though if I had to talk percentages that movie is 80% hilarity and 20% romance. Something’s […]

Falling Overnight starring Parker Croft and Emilia Zoryan

Share

Falling Overnight starring Parker Croft and Emilia Zoryan It’s official. I have a weakness for a good romance that takes place during a day (night). Before Sunrise and Forget Me Not, and most recently, Falling Overnight proved that. However Falling Overnight is a lot more similar to Forget Me Not than Before Sunrise with its […]
