Music Break: Far From The Madding Crowd (2015)

I'm in the romantic period drama mood this week as I've been listening to the beautiful scores for Pride & Prejudice, Belle (one of my top 10 scores of 2014)... and this one. Though I wasn't as enamored as I would have with Far From The Madding Crowd (due to the Tom Sturridge miscasting as Troy), I actually want to …

FlixChatter Review: Far from the Madding Crowd (2015)

I have to admit the first time I heard about this novel was a few years ago when Richard Armitage's character in the Christmas edition of Vicars of Dibley mentioned this Thomas Hardy's novel as his favorite.

TEN Notable Foreign Actors to Watch – Where Are They Now?

I first published this list back in November 2009, and I've been wanting to do an update in a while, thanks to the suggestion from Iba @ ILuvCinema.
