Jane Eyre gets around a lot.

I’m referring, of course, to the oft-told story of Jane Eyre.

Throaty and sleepy, Jeremy Irons begins his narration of the wildlife documentary The Last Lions as if awoken from a crumpet-induced nap. Any electricity that’s felt by once more having Irons’ voice laid atop images of lions is blunted by a delivery that sounds like Irons is auditioning for a British sex chat line. His dulcet tones seem at odds with a surprisingly riveting story of survival; if March of the...

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension.

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.
