Preening macho duo falls flat

This week I stumbled upon an amazing fact: the combined estimated budgets of The Artist, The Descendants and Midnight in Paris, three Oscar-nominated Best Picture films, add up to a meagre US$52 million dollars - quite conservative by Hollywood standards.

This is Not a Love Song

This is Not a Love Song
