Woody Allen Mines the Venal Depths of Financial Despair

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Allen turns his attention to the financial crisis of 2008 and a Bernie Madoff-type named Hal (Alec Baldwin), one of those Wall Street titans building cloud-based castles in the sky that blot out both the sun and common sense. He’s gruff and arrogant, all façade with no substantive core inside his bulked-up blustering frame.  

I’m Still Watching 'True Blood' (And Probably Always Will)

I can’t believe I still watch True Blood, but I’m not ever going to stop. Sure, it’s lost its original spark, but True Blood is an event. Maybe I’ve been glamoured, but from the moment the first twangs of “Bad Things” start playing, it’s on.

Wheeling & Dealing with 'The Millers'

Maybe I’m as juvenile as my wife thinks, but the bit in trailer for Rawson Marshall Thurber’s We’re the Millers where Jason Sudeikis, as a scheming drug mule who hires a fake family to smuggle drugs across the border, launches into a Bane voice (spoofing Tom Hardy’s villain from The Dark Knight Rises) just sends me into a fit of hysterical laughter.
