Ape expectations – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes review

By Simon Miraudo July 9, 2014 If we should take anything away from the terse title characters of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it’s the power of brevity. So, here’s my review: Apes together strong. Sequel merely solid. (The rest is for the human readers, sticklers for protraction.) This laboriously-titled follow up to […]

Threat level midnight – Zero Dark Thirty review

Zero Dark Thirty – Starring Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, and Jennifer Ehle. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Rated MA. By Simon Miraudo. This thing is an embarrassment of riches; the jewel in director Kathryn Bigelow‘s crown. The most accomplished procedural since David Fincher‘s superb Zodiac, gifted with an esteemed, oddball ensemble cast anchored by a career-best […]

Blame it on the alcohol – Lawless review

Lawless – Starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, and Guy Pearce. Directed by John Hillcoat. Rated MA. By Simon Miraudo. John Hillcoat‘s Lawless is so low-key it’s practically infrasonic. Utterly untroubled by any expectation to entertain – or even mildly engage – the audience, Hillcoat and screenwriter Nick Cave take a stroll through 1930s Virginia with […]

Jason Clarke in, Joel Edgerton out of Kill Bin Laden

Aussie Jason Clarke is the first actor cast in Kathryn Bigelow‘s upcoming flick Kill Bin Laden, Deadline reports. Joel Edgerton was previously announced as one of the film’s Osama-hunters, but it now seems his busy shooting schedule (which includes the 300 spin-off Battle of Artemisia) has forced him to abandon the project. Tom Hardy, Jennifer Ehle, Idris Elba, Rooney […]
