Take the money – Fading Gigolo review

By Glenn Dunks April 29, 2014 It’s telling that John Turturro cast Woody Allen in his latest directorial effort given that the director/writer/star’s Fading Gigolo is desperate to be ‘a Woody Allen film’ for a new generation.

Should old acquaintance be forgot? – New Year’s Eve review

New Year’s Eve – Starring Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher and Sarah Jessica Parker. Directed by Garry Marshall. Rated M. By Simon Miraudo. These movies must be really easy to write. You know the kind.
