Rik Mayall died! :'( We played what tribute we could.
On tap this week were reviews of the film Edge of Tomorrow,
a film which is impossible to describe without describing other films,
which illustrates an easy point about postmodern pastiche without me
having to. It worked as pulp sci-fi and little else; to its credit, it
never tried to think about its own whacky premise, but that's always a
backhanded compliment. I don't always understand the "Just shut off your
brain and enjoy!" dictum. Why the fuck would I shut off my brain? It
seems useful. If I happen to find stupid things entertaining, it sure
won't be because I shut my brain off.
Anywho, DVD's may also be dead by 2016. Say lah vee.
We heard music from:
Drop Dead Fred, 1991 - Randy Edelman
Drive Angry, 2011 - Michael Wandmacher
Elektra, 2005 - Christophe Beck
