NEW THING: While sifting through the Netflix Instant Watch "Tearjerkers" section for possible blog material, I came across two films that caught my eye: Autumn In New York, a 2000 film starring Richard Gere and Winona Ryder, and Sweet November, a 2001 film starring Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. For as long as I can remember, I have not been able to tell these two movies apart. Their titles are similarly autumnal (one more directly so than the other, but still). They came out at around the same time. From what I understand, both films have similar plots, feature Manic Pixie Dream Girls, and are sad. They are also both probably terrible.
I intend to watch one of these two films this week for the blog (I'll probably watch the other one in a few weeks or so), and seeing as how I cannot distinguish between the two, I figured I'd leave it up to you, the readers. So please take the poll at right. I arbitrarily set the deadline for the poll for Wednesday, May 4, at 11:59 PM. After you decide, I'll do my best to watch it Thursday and have my post ready for all of you to read on Friday. (Although if my previous attempts at setting time-sensitive goals for this blog are any indication, I will have my post ready for all of you to read sometime next year.)
I'd also love it if you explained your choice in the comments! So do some research, check out the Wikipedia links above, then go ahead and intelligently defend your violent hatred of either known shoplifter Winona Ryder, or known simpleton Keanu Reeves. Or both.
