A little over a year ago I had the Showtime channel. It filled a void. The straight-to-VHS/DVD crime genre, roughly post Pulp Fiction to present day, entertains me to a troubling end. On-Demand is my current, and slightly costlier, way to deal with the separation anxiety. See last nightâ€™s Smokinâ€™ Aces post. Today, in tidy portions, I consumed Harsh Times. This movie is unbelievable. Bob Mehr and I are planning a double feature with Assassination Tango. Both are essential to the quest for ultimate entertainment via very poor Hollywood decisions. I need to let the former sink in for a day or so. A more detailed post is forthcoming. Beats Dirty for hilariously misguided Training Day rips.
