To Rome with Love Blu-ray Review

Woody Allen’s latest postcard from Europe has plenty of delightful moments, but the whole doesn’t add to greater than its parts on this occasion. To Rome with Love is a minor Allen film that won’t be required viewing.

The Words: Extended Special Edition Blu-ray Review

The Words is a dull, overly melodramatic literary thriller that would have been better served by an actual novel.

Strong performances from an A-list cast help to overcome the deficits in this rom-com aimed squarely at the boomer crowd.

World Without End Blu-ray Review

Terrible melodrama and a retread of the same plots from the previous mini-series, The Pillars of the Earth, make World Without End, seem like no more than lame imitation hoping for similar success.
