Melinda, a desperately lonely female gas station attendant and her encounter with a man who tries to rob her store is the story of the Mike Gan directed thriller,Burn.
Starring Suki Waterhouse, Josh Hutcherson and Tilda Cobham-Hervey (Melinda), at first I paid very close attention – thanks mainly to Cobham-Hervey’s performance. Unfortunately, my interest did start to wane because of the not quite arresting conversation between Melinda and Josh Hutcherson’s robber character once he was tied up. This is sadly the point at which I resigned to the idea of Burn as quite a disappointing movie but still I chose to continue.
The story didn’t improve with time but what I was very certain about is that the actors performed well. Particularly Cobham-Hervey in her role as the desperately lonely Melinda. It’s just unfortunate that I didn’t like the story’s execution, or fully believe everything that happened towards the end.
Considering all the desperate madness that Melinda filled her day with, I was left wishing that hopefully, there really aren’t too many people as lonely as her.
From writer / director Mike Gan, Burn is a new thriller about a lonely female gas station attendant’s encounter with a desperate man who tries to rob the store…
Key cast includes Suki Waterhouse, Harry Shum Jr., Josh Hutcherson, Tilda Cobham-Hervey…
Editing-wise, I do wish that this trailer had ended just before the words ‘I burn myself all the time. it’s not a bad thing‘ were uttered. Nevertheless, I’m interested; mostly in Cobham-Hervey’s depiction of ‘mentally unstable.’
Shiloh Fernandez, James Devoti, Wayne Pyle, John D. Hickman and Rob Figueroa also star .
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before on here, but I’m quite the emotional being. Precisely within 30 seconds of hitting play on the new trailer for In Dubious Battle, my eyeballs were near enough swimming in their sockets. All about an activist (Franco) fighting in the labor movement for farm workers in California during the 1930s, the cast for In Dubious Battle is pretty impressive. To name just a few we have Ed Harris, Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Nat Wolff and Selena Gomez. The movie is directed by and starring James Franco…
I’m quite sure that I saw another trailer for this movie a few months ago, but it did very little for me. It’s pretty damn amazing what a fresh edit can do, no?
