I’ve heard Ken Jeong‘s scenes in Transformers: Dark of the Moon — though brief in the context of a nearly 150-minute film — were rather interminable and worse, entirely unnecessary; there might be more on the way.

Steven Knight‘s Locke, which, after a theatrical release this past spring, is now on VOD and Blu-ray as of this week, takes place entirely inside of Tom Hardy‘s BMW SUV cruising down the motor way in London. It’s a set-up the leaves much to the imagination. Ivan Locke is a concrete expert who is literally driving […]
