Christoph Waltz (husband Walter Keane) bad!
Amy Adams* (Margaret Keane)
Director: Tim Burton
Great director & I love period piece Bio's but couldn't make it past the 1/2 way point on this one. While Amy Adams was really good, I couldn't take Keane's over-blown acting any longer. Just stopped short of twiddling his mustache..."

Votes: 5,798 | Gross: $0.10M
ABANDONED: rave reviews / indie romantic comedy
Guy Pearce+ (owner Trevor)
Kobie Smulders (Kat)
Kevin Corrigan - (client Danny)
65% google, 83% Rotten Tomatoes
Me: I like quirky, fine with slower paced films & Guy Pearce was good in it, but not good enough to warrant watching the whole thing. The dialog was okay. but the characters were 1 dimensional & boring - notably Corrigan's portrayal of Danny - could have done so much more with that role. Watched about 3/4's of it, no laughs. Maybe because I'm not body obsessed I didn't get the pathos/humor".
PLOT: A wealthy but miserable slob tries to improve his life and soon becomes inextricably entangled with a self-styled guru/gym owner & acerbic personal trainer.
Reviews: Smulders captures the screen portraying Kat, an intense, sexy, volatile personal trainer. Pearce plays owner who's extremely serious about fitness & business. He's once had an affair with Kat, clearly chemistry between them, but they can't seem to really connect. Enter Danny (Corrigan) as a walk-in to the gym, a strange guy who's looking to improve on his out of shape & nebishy persona. Just divorced, unexpectedly inherited a windfall from his estranged mother. Kat is assigned as his personal trainer, he develops a fixation on her, which will lead down paths I didn't expect. It's not a laugh-out-loud type comedy, more droll & cerebral. Won me over with its good performances, quirky humor & an upbeat finish.

Robert Downey Jr.+, Jude Law, Jared Harris, Stephen Fry
Please, is it really necessary to morph Sherlock into an action figure?? He's loved for his intellect...this a travesty. I'll re-watch Benedict Cumberbatch in the British Series "Sherlock" instead - now that's how to put an interesting spin on a character - knocks this out of the ball park."

ABANDONED; horror, neo-western action
...I thought it sounded great. It wasn't! I need at least SOME character development to care about what happens. Very dated, doesn't hold up well, watched most of it.
James Woods (Jack Crow) Daniel Baldwin (jowliest Baldwin) Thomas Ian Griffith (Valek)
Director: John Carpenter
Intrigued by review "When it comes to fighting vampires & performing exorcisms, the Roman Catholic Church has the heavy artillery, you want a priest on the case. Grungy, disreputable fun. beautifully shot, nightmarishly haunting spaghetti western/horror. Entertaining watch thanks to Woods's as Jack Crow, hard-bitten vampire hunter, whose family was destroyed by vampires. He's fun to watch, the dark glasses, the little cigar, the sneer. Carpenter does a good job with this stylish, scary vampire flick, giving us a a great leading hero & a great villain.
