[Contains nervous, sweaty SPOILERS!!!] While cheerfully copy-and-pasting Tilda Swinton titles into my “wish list”, I neglected to check how large her role actually was in each of the films I was listing… thankfully, while she may only score a few … Continue reading

Planning To Fail

Having apparently run out of decent J-Lo flicks to enjoy, I was reduced to watching The Wedding Planner (2001) on TV last Sunday. Shudder. For those who don’t know, Lopez plays the eponymous planner, ‘Mary Fiore’, who is so consumed … Continue reading
