    I saw this on Netflix over the w/e. I didn't think it was that bad. Gemma Arterton and the Troll had some real chemistry going on there, for one thing. Actually, that may've been the only thing......

    To me she's always sounded like a less inventive Jesca Hoop. Still, she's very young and hopefully has her best work ahead. Anyway, I like the single but wouldn't be interested in hearing it more...

    They were found the next morning in the Bear Canyon CG. Way off-route, they'd built a huge fire and waited out the night.
