You can tell a lot about a person from the miscellaneous collection of
DVD’s stacked next to their television set. Every film we own says a little bit about us, whether

DAY 9: ERIN BROCKOVICH

didn’t like (Ocean’s 12… but more on that dibocal later). I do think
Aaron Eckhart does a great job of making sure no one will ever
recognize him in this movie.
WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ME:
that if I got really lonely, the internet died, my computer crashed,
the cable got shut off AND I lost my memory, I’d still have a romantic
recourse. (Too much?)
Until next time… Hit me back.
