Let Me Clarify

“I’m just a girl, sitting in front of a computer screen, asking you to share her love of movies…

….and bring her another bottle of wine.”

Claire Elizabeth Williams

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to 2020! I hope you are all having a great start to the new year and new decade!

Now, I have a confession: I am one of those saps that still puts quite a bit of stock in new years resolutions (followed quickly by Lent-en resolutions, followed by hot girls summer goals, followed by…well, you get the picture). The past few years, I’ve been happy with the changes I’ve made based on my resolutions, but they’ve all been so much WORK! This year, I wanted to do something that was just for me to enjoy. Now, for those of you who know me, you know I have only one real, natural talent. POP CULTURE. That’s right. You won’t find me boarding down the mountain, breaking 100 on a bowling league, or even knitting a damn blanket. But, my god, if I can’t tell you that both Rosalind Chao and Andrew McCarthy were both in Joy Luck Club AND an episode of Monk’s second season. Does this knowledge do me any good at all in the real world, aside from occasional conversation fodder? Hell no. But I love it and it seems like I tend to collect people around me who love it too.

So what do I do with all of this useless knowledge as I face this new year? Create a blog of course! Is it a shameless excuse for me to also see more movies this year? Yes. The better question, do I give a s***? No. So here we are and all I really hope is that if you’re contemplating spending $10-13 of your hard-earned money, I can help you make an informed decision and that we start a conversation about one of the few things that still brings us together…THE MOVIES!

UPDATE:

This year can ************ go **** itself and stick a **** up its *** and ****, amiright?! So, what better time to close the blackout shades, ignore the explosions outside your window, and put on some movies?
