    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 2004

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Aug, 2015

    Ten thoughts, to summarize:

    1) Auto-tune is a serious problem. Jamie Foxx can sing, but you wouldn't know it. It's a style thing, I guess... but I can't even hear the lyrics, the auto tuned vocals are so buried in the mix.
    2) It's not funny. Like at…
