    Copshop

    ★★★★

    -Gun Creek would have been a far better title for this than Copshop.
    -It doesn’t wear its influences lightly, from the Magnum Force theme tune at the beginning to the overarcing riff on Assault on Precinct 13. This doesn’t make it any less fun.
    -Toby Huss is a shotgun blast of fresh air when he arrives, and Alexis Louder is an absolute badass standing muzzle-to-muzzle against a menagerie of scumbags.
    -As a general life rule, you can never have too much Curtis Mayfield.

    ★★½

    On the one hand, Ben Mendelsohn is always worth watching, and he’s terrific in this. On the other, “miserable rich white people” is my least favourite genre.

    Last Year at Marienbad

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

    The sheer fucking unwarranted hubris of Todd Phillips that he thought he could better (let alone equal) Planes, Trains & Automobiles. I laughed a total of two times - both times because RDJ pulled a facial expression that managed to rise above the pitiful slop of the script.
