No Oscar for Stiller, Please!

(FYI, thoughts on the Sons of Anarchy finale are at the bottom because it’s spoiler-heavy …) Suffice it to say, I’m still catching up on 2010 movies. Technically, that’s like saying last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a quiet little affair — both big understatements. Once the TV season stalls out in about a week or […]
