    Bunraku and Margaret should have been released years ago and it is a disgrace that not only have they been needlessly delayed but they are both only getting a limited release. They both have stellar casts (Bunraku – Josh Hartnett, Ron Perlman, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson) (Margaret – Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick, Allison Janney, Jean Reno) and shouldn’t go unnoticed by the public now that they have finally been released.

    I am fed up with the gorgeous and talented Bryce Dallas Howard always playing villains now and being typecast after her roles in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Help and 50/50

    Wow. Margaret does have an incredible cast. I hope it gets a wider release since it’s close to awards season.
