Burn Movie Review

Sizzlingly Odd
In his debut feature, writer/director Mike Gan has created a small film that, if there's justice, will attain a cult-like status. "Burn" takes place in the course of one evening and entirely within the confines of a rural, out-of-the-way gas station shop.
It's the kind of place that loners might wander into for a hot cup of coffee at 3am. Obviously this is not a big budget film, but Gan squeezes an awful lot of goodness out of it. Maybe we should call it badness.





Driven Movie Review

Drive on By

"Driven" is the latest on-screen exploration of the story of automobile icon John DeLorean. It is light years better than Framing John DeLorean, which was released a few months earlier, but it's still not worth watching. This gives you an idea of just how bad "Framing John DeLorean" is.

To quickly recap, John DeLorean was atop the world of automobile manufacturing before striking out on his own with his signature DeLorean car. It was stunning in looks, but a machine that looks nice and doesn't work real well is not a formula for success. Toss in trying to deal large quantities of cocaine and you know how this will play out.

For some utterly unknown reason, this version of DeLorean's saga doesn't focus on DeLorean. Instead, it's primarily about Jim Hoffman (Jason Sudeikis), a drug smuggler turned narc. I happen to be a fan of Sudeikis, but he wisecracks his way through his role, and that ensures that there's little drama here. Not much comedy, either.

Hoffman, in order to clean up his drug smuggling criminal record, works with the FBI to try and nab DeLorean in a drug sting. To Hoffman, DeLorean (Lee Pace) is a god. He looks at him as the genius of the car industry and as a great looking and suave gentleman. Pace is pretty believable in the role, so that's a plus.

Really, there's not much else to say. There are a few decent moments, but decent might be a generous word. Pace is okay as DeLorean. Judy Greer is okay as Hoffman's beleaguered wife. But "Driven" never gets into gear.

Should I Buy The John Wick Hex?
John Wick Hex is basically a top-down tactics game with the time system of Frozen Synapse or Superhot, but it’s maybe best to think of it as its own new genre: the John Wick sim.
From top to bottom this is meant to make you feel like Keanu’s iconic assassin, and the remarkable thing is that even with a floating camera and cel-shaded visuals it absolutely achieves it. WWJWD?
