After the jump, our review, along with a slideshow of… Read More

We felt bad for Sienna Miller. We were excited to hear that Alexander Payne is going into production on Kaui Hart Hemmings’ adaptation of the novel The Descendants. And finally we’ll send you with Shatner Of The Mount by our friends, Fall On Your Sword. We’re obsessed.… Read More
