American Beauty (1999)

Disclaimer: I knew nothing about this film going into it. To be honest, this is pretty standard of most movies I watch for this blog. I know that it's critically acclaimed, and I vaguely suspect that this is the movie where the "plastic bag" scene comes into play, but those aren't exactly helpful hints. For the fellow...

Memento (2000)

This is one of those reviews that really support my tagline: Unqualified movie reviewer praises already critically acclaimed movies. What can I say? At least I'm honest.

Star Wars Crash Course

A few days ago, a nice young man came into the unnamed office where I work, wearing a Rogue One T-shirt. At my boss's request, I went over to make light small talk, while nervously avoiding eye-contact with his shirt, because I . . . have never seen Star Wars. I twisted the conversation to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, a bit...
