Pain and Gain
This weekend is looking pretty dismal in terms of new releases—if you’re looking for cheap action thrills, or a trite rom-com, you’re set for the weekend; if you’re looking for genuine quality, you will most likely be disappointed.

The Big Wedding – Hollywood is a weird place. While it can be known for being forward-thinking or progressive in its politics, willing to adapt to social changes and put new stories on the big screen, like the Oscar-nominated "The Kids Are All Right" that offers a refreshing and modern look at families, on the other hand, it can be strangely conservative. 10 years 18 weeks ago via donnieyen
