A reverse top 5? What’s a reverse top 5? A reverse top 5 would be where I make you people do the work and help me out for a change. I’m going to be honest: I’m struggling. Movies on the weekend were kind of my wife’s thing so there’s already that against me. Grief is such a weird thing. You become this schizoid version of yourself, flipping through emotions. One moment you’re fine, then someone walks past wearing the same perfume your wife did and your friends are hauling you off the railing where you are preparing to bid this sad world adieu somewhere between Auntie Anne’s and Manchu Wok in the food court. It happens that quickly. I’d love to tell you when it slows down so that I don’t have to worry about hulking out into an angry diatribe against God, man and Elmer Fudd. I’d love to tell you when you’re stable enough to hear someone mention anything your wife liked without inflicting the world’s saddest story on the person unlucky enough to be geographically next to you. I’d love to tell you. I don’t know. I have functional days and days where I’m a fuzzy sack of emotional pudding.
So what movies do you have for me? Step up here. Help your crazed news hound out with some suggestions for a smile and keep in mind I own two replicas of Aragorn’s sword so this is a serious situation here, fellow pale friendless nerds.
