Lockout

(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

This deliriously cruddy sci-fi flick is barely watchable. In 2079, Snow (Guy Pearce), an ex-CIA operative, gets strong-armed into a trip to a space station prison that’s been taken over by its inmates. Oh, and the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) needs rescuing. There’s a great deal of point-blank handgun killings, monotonous pacing, bewildering editing and overall terribleness. It’s as if the Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys paid the filmmakers to make this film for heckling purposes.

Bon Iver

While I respect the talents of Bon Iver and the fully layered sound the Best New Artist Grammy winner is able to create, this is one phenomenon I do not understand. But my skepticism was in the minority at their recent concert. The audience was often silent, not because they were disinterested, but because they were enthralled with what can best be described as adult-contemporary-emo-folk music.
