Chris Nashawaty Unveils the “NashBot 3000 Critic” in “Furnace (2013)”

In response to Chris Nashawaty’s 159‑word review of Out of the Furnace on Entertainment Weekly,,20721947,00.html

By ,

Chris Nashawaty’s latest piece “Out of the Furnace (2013),” is American-made packaged fluff. The one-hundred fifty-nine words are simply a synopsis of the film featuring a few original thoughts from the “critic.”

Nashawaty give the film an A—rating in Furnace (2013), which might lead one to believe that the film is deserving of more than one paragraph. It’s not uncommon for critics to mail it in when they don’t like a film, but this is a rare case when a highly-rated flick is only awarded five minutes of writing.

Furnace (2013) is not completely garbage since the basic essentials are covered aka acknowledging people by name. However, the disturbing anti-critique will devastate the average reader, and it’s difficult to predict how connoisseurs will hold up. Some may wander off aimlessly with legendary critiques in hand, and simply become lost in thought due to the craziness of the modern world of reviews.

The basic plot is noted in Furnace (2013), however the analysis of the lead performances is far from plentiful. Nashawaty is only able to come up with “all of the actors (including Zoë Saldana as Bale’s ex) are remarkable.” Don’t forget Saldana! Would it then be fair to assume that extras are remarkable as well? The deep critique is poignant and rich, said nobody.

Furnace (2013) is a paragraph of robot-produced material.
