When it comes to winning big at the box office, never bet against Pixar. 'Brave' is not only the acclaimed animation studio's thirteenth film, it is their thirteenth film to open at number one at the box office. It's a track record that just about everyone else in Hollywood would kill for.
To Rome With Love
Unlike any other filmmaker, Woody Allen both benefits and suffers from our knowledge of the author. We know his work habits, pumping out a new title each season like a dressmaker's line, keeping takes to a minimum and wrapping each day in time for an early dinner. When a transition seems forced or a joke doesn't land we think, “C'mon Woody, put in the extra effort.”
On the other hand, the sometimes overly patrician dialogue or far-fetched relationship entanglement will seem extra pungent, knowing how it fits into his larger oeuvre, and we'll find ourselves being overly kind. Maybe he should retire/oh, I hope he never retires. This is the internal debate going through my mind when I watch a lesser, albeit entertaining Woody Allen film like 'To Rome With Love.'
If there's one thing that Woody Allen can do best, he can direct and write one hell of a movie, just like what he did with 'Midnight in Paris.' He's also a decent actor and he's wearing all those hats for his latest film. Watch as Allen and his cast (Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Penélope Cruz, Roberto Benigni) show off the lives of several different people in the cute and funny new trailer for Sony Pictures Classics' 'To Rome With Love.'
Writer-director Woody Allen has been making films for decades, captivating audiences across the globe with his tales of romance, mystery and the ever-fine line of comedy woven in each one of his movies. Now he's getting ready to unleash another one of his charming films to the masses which is 'To Rome With Love.'
