So what did the Phoenix Film Critics Society choose for Pick of the Week? A Royal Affair. I know you've probably not heard of it. But it's getting good reviews. It is based on a true story and it is in Danish, but don't let that keep you from the theater. "It's a very good period piece, romance," said PFCS president David Ramsey. As for the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. Ramsey said, "It's the best of the series but that doesn't mean it's a good movie. The first half is horrible. The second half actually has some action with a big fight. And it does deviate from the book, but fans will be happy with it. The best performances go to Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning." As for Steven Spielberg's Oscar bait Lincoln, it's received a 90 percent fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes. You can't beat those numbers.

The media site reports he told Jay Z that "if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn't matter who you are, that is just rude." Or someone should tell Bob if a guy doesn't call you back, he's just not that into you.
