“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”: Is Ignorance Truly Bliss?

SPOILERS AHEAD First off, if you haven’t seen this masterpiece, I highly recommend closing this browser and placing yourself in front of your nearest screen for the next hour and 45 minutes. I would also recommend a box of tissues as this movie carries a ton of emotional baggage. Written by Charlie Kaufman, the filmContinue reading ““Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”: Is Ignorance Truly Bliss?”

June Weekend Flicks Part 2: 12 Years as a Slave, Deadpool, Air Force One, Annihilation, etc.

Back to it… let’s finish the list (for now)! 12 Years as a Slave (2016) – Drama, Timepiece – Score: (9/10): This is a film I went into viewing quite ignorantly, to be honest, as in I had no idea what to expect.

June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.

It’s been another weird month of quarantine, indeed. But at least the weather here in New England has been for the most part, excellent. No complaints on my end.

2019 was a good year for film. Not that it was the best year by any means, but it was certainly beneficial for the film industry. You had movies like Avengers top box offices worldwide with $2.7B in profits, followed by Lion King at $1.6B and Spider Man: Far From Home at $1.1B. If you’reContinue reading “My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Films of 2019”
