Written and directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) one would think they’d be in for a treat. One would be wrong. The results left all of […]

Posted: June 24, 2010 at 1:59 pm   /   Books, Local, Movie News

Jason Reitman is a bit of a Hollywood golden boy these days with solid performers like Thank You For Smoking, Juno, and Up in the Air. All three of his film have easily out grossed their budgets, which currently makes him a hot commodity. So, one has to sit up and notice when he picks […]
