South Florida - The Kidd's Got Your Six With Tickets To An Advance Screening Of END OF WATCH!!

The Kidd here...

I think a lot of you are going to be surprised by how good END OF WATCH is. Hell, I was. The new film from David Ayer really gives you an intense look at what a pair of regular beat cops (Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña) go through on a daily basis deep in the heart of gang territory out in L.A. This really is a fantastic film that I've had the pleasure of seeing twice already... well, the third time will be the real charm, because I'm bringing a bunch of you with me to check out an advance screening of END OF WATCH down here in South Florida. 

I've got 50 guaranteed seats at the AMC Sunset Place 24 on Tuesday, September 18, for a 7:30 p.m. showtime. This isn't an Ain't It Cool News exclusive, but we'll have seats reserved for our winners, which will be held for you right up until 15 minutes before, so, if you make the cut on this one, you're absolutely in to see END OF WATCH, provided you show up on time.

So what do you have to do to find yourself inside the theatre for this solid flick?

Here's what I need from you.

An answer to the following question - What is your favorite cop movie of all-time, and why? - in 100 words or less.

As the entries come pouring in, they'll be judged on their own merit. Once enough good quality entries fill out all our seats, I'm closing up shop on this contest, and winners will be notified by email and posted up on the site.

In the body of the email, send your name (along with whether or not you'll be bringing a guest - you can have ONE if you please) and answer to with the following subject line exactly (in all CAPS):


If you're missing any of the information I'm asking for, then it's as if you don't even have an entry, no matter how good it may have been. 

If you're not sure if you're going to be able to make it though, it's quite simple - don't enter. If you don't think you can get out of work early enough, or if you have class, homework, chores, scheduled surgery, an unreliable car, prior engagements or previous commitments that may prevent you from attending this screening, don't try to win only to let these seats go to waste. We've been having far too many no-shows lately, so if you decide you're not going to go in the event you do win tickets, don't worry about playing again in the future. You're going on my Black List forever and ever. 

Thanks to Open Road Films for setting this up with us, and good luck to you.

    A Die Hard nomination would kick off a sub-genre debate

    by I_Snake_Plissken

    Personally, I would put Die Hard in the straight up action film category (and then quite possibly rank it as the greatest action film of all time with “Lethal Weapon” as a close second). Of course, then I would need to move Lethal Weapon into the number one spot in its own “Buddy Cop” genre. Then, you’d have to go with the “comedy-drama” sub-category for “Buddy Cops” and nominate both 48 hours and Beverly Hills cop (which only becomes a member of the Buddy cop sub-genre during the 2nd half of the film). Then “Buddy Cop Full on Comedy” with the likes of Hot Fuzz. I am possibly over-thinking this….

    Would 'M' qualify as a cop movie?

    by Bill C.

    I'm thinking there needs to be more love for the police films from the black-and-white era...albeit I'm not sure how many there are that don't bleed over into straight noir...
