Writer's Block: The tenth time's the charm
What movie have you seen the most times in your life? How many times have you seen it? Will you ever grow tired of it?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey are both so amazing in it. I love the script; Charlie Kaufman is one of my favourite writers ever. It's very deep and complex and heartbreaking and emotional and funny... it's got a bit of everything. It's sciencey enough so even the sci-fi geeks will be interested, and it's got just the right amount of romance in it - not the syrupy sweetness of The Notebook and not the ridiculous drippiness of Bella and Edward. Joel and Clementine are two very flawed and realistic human beings trying to make a relationship work over and over again.

Kate Winslet is also my favourite actress and basically one of the most amazing people to ever grace this planet and I think she should have been awarded for playing Clementine, who is probably the best character on screen she's ever portrayed (after Juliet Hume in Heavenly Creatures).
