Review: Zero Dark Thirty

Jan 17th, 2013 Featured, On Pop culture incoherentboy 5 min read

Verdict: Four out of five stars. Chilling and gut-wrenching, the tension never lets up, even though you already know the outcome. It’s all centred on a powerhouse performance from Jessica Chastain, helped by an outstanding supporting cast that includes James Gandolfini and Mark Strong.

Review: Red Dawn

Nov 21st, 2012 Featured, On Pop culture incoherentboy 5 min read

Verdict: Two out of five stars. Essentially the world’s longest argument for gun rights, the Red Dawn remake retains all of the paranoia, jingoism and borderline offensiveness of its predecessor, not to mention some glaring plot holes. Even a stable of hot young stars cannot do much to lift this movie out of the mire. Nevertheless, still watchable in a twisted, mindless way.
