TRUE STORY Review

The immediate assumption when seeing a movie starring both Jonah Hill and James Franco is that it is of course a comedy, but when you place the fact both of these guys are Oscar-nominated actors in front of that you can understand where things might not be all you expect. 1,688 more words

Drama

The Notorious Bettie Page

The Notorious Bettie Page is a competent, tame, by-the-numbers, biopic. It is watchable, somewhat interesting, but not fully successful on any level.

It covers Page’s life from her teens to her 30s. 1,250 more words
