Blu-ray Review: THE RUM DIARY Is Watered-Down Hunter S. Thompson

Writer-director Bruce Robinson's adaptation of The Rum Diary isn't a particularly good movie, but then I'm not really sure it had a whole lot of a chance. Based on an early novel by journalist/brilliant writer/crazy person Hunter S. Thompson, the...

Two New Clips from THE RUM DIARY
