Flix Poster of the Week: You Will Meet a Tall, Dark, Stranger

Another year, another Woody Allen's ensemble-cast movie. I'm not one to rush to see his movies, in fact, I can count with one hand how many of his films I have seen.

Random Thoughts: The Chameleon vs. Perpetually-Typecast Actors

Well, clearly we have winner on the movie battle of the muscled men vs. Julia + her men vs. a nerd boy hero. The Expendables exploded at the box office with $35 million, with Eat, Pray, Love came out in a distant second with about 10 million less. I guess Sly's gamble paid off, it …
