    so good to see Cop Car get some love. Such a tiny bleep on the cinema radar, yet, for me, it was one of the better movies I saw this year. Was definitely gonna wind up in my top 10 and now I feel vindicated. Goodnight Mommy(sorry LTI) up there too, where it belongs. Unfortunately, so is It Follows, which...while good for what it was, is highly overrated. Great premise made instantly forgettable by a few bad choices and the over reliance on cribbing Carpenterisms. There is a good movie in there, but not as it stands.

    No way would I have Kingsman on the worst list.

    Heck not even Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse would be on my worst, and I find it hard to fathom if it was actually watched by the article writer. It's so misogynistic (movie was written by 3 women and 1 guy BTW) that she saves the entire group? Yeah, OK.
