The 40-Year-Old Version
- Excerpt: What is most engaging about The 40-Year-Old Version is that it isn’t polished. It isn’t slick. It’s flows with the kind of messiness of real life, and with the onset of middle age.
- Excerpt: The actual sex scene, which are not coy, aren’t as interesting as the scenes that build up to them. This is the 1840s, and these women are engaging in an affair that could have them thrown in an institution for the rest of their lives.

- Excerpt: I sat down with Coppola’s new re-edit – now tagged with his original title The Godfather Coda: “The Death of Michael Corleone” – with the hope that it would offer a new experience, or at least the one that he promises in his brief introduction on the Blu-Ray. Does it? Well, sort of.
- Excerpt: It is very touching that David Fincher would want to be the director to helm a screenplay about Herman J. Mankiewicz that was written by his late father. Jack Fincher (1932-2003) had written the bio-pic of legendary screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and it had been around Hollywood for many years because unfortunately the studios rejected it.
