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
