    The Day the Earth Froze

    ★★★★

    My Finnish grandmother died of cancer far too young a couple of years before I was born. She is transcendently beloved for my older siblings. She is so very alive in their hearts and memory. I have never had a presence like that in my life, and as a child I leapt at any bit of her memory anyone described.

    My Finnish great-grandmother, also beloved, died of the same cancer within weeks of my grandmother.

    I would hear little things…

    The Lake House Drinking Game

    Sip:
    1) Keanu talks to an inanimate object
    2) Unnecessarily dramatic camera angle
    3) Sandra wears capris
    4) Keanu wears a blazer over a t-shirt/hoodie/turtleneck
    5) Anyone wears a turtleneck
    6) You recognize an outfit you wore in 2006
    7) They sit/stand/walk in the same spot the other has just been
    8) Keanu is earnest*

    Gulp/Finish the Drink:
    1) Keanu cries
    2) Someone says, "It's about waiting."

    *only if you want to get drunk

    There was no one else in the theater, so actually my friend and I talked over a not insignificant portion of this, and it was lovely to catch up with them, so net good experience.

    Movie itself was too long with not enough concept to fill it.

    365 Days: This Day

    Read what Malakie has written.

    Nothing more needs to be said. We drank negronis and polish brandy and I begged Mal to write one of her classic reviews because frankly sorry to you all, but the reviews on this site of this film are as boring as the film.

    Malakie is the hero who arose.

    Remember that time in the early 2000s when Mark Ruffalo was the go-to guy for high-concept romantic comedies? What a time to be alive.

    I AM SO ANGRY AT THIS ENTIRE THING I CANNOT EVEN DESCRIBE. MY HOUSEMATE DEFINITELY JUST HEARD MY SCREAMS.

    The absolute worst case of false advertising I have seen in an age.

    The worst, because Netflix's goddamn trailer played up every single thing to make me think I would love this goddamn thing.

    I turned on Netflix on Thanksgiving morning, because I had a blessed morning off (the first morning off in forever), and a trailer for this Netflix original…
