The Scarlett Johansson Project — #7

I could not wait to get to this one. This is actually the one performance that made me officially choose Scarlett Johansson this year over my other choice. Casting my mind all the way back to 2014, I remember walking out of the theater a total wreck. For anyone who has ever had an ex,Continue reading “The Scarlett Johansson Project — #7”

July has turned out to be a fun examination of a few of his biggest hits, each ofContinue reading “TBT: Seven Pounds (2008)”
