  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Joel Barish, heartbroken that his girlfriend underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realizes that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake.

    This is one of Jim Carrey’s best films. He pulls back his manic energy to reveal a fragile soul, broken by an ill-fated love.

    The movie comes from Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman, the team behind other mind-bending classics like “Being John Malkovich” and “Adaptation.”

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    16 November 2001

    Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) has lived under the stairs at his aunt and uncle’s house his whole life. But on his 11th birthday, he learns he’s a powerful wizard — with a place waiting for him at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he learns to harness his newfound powers with the help of the school’s kindly headmaster, Harry uncovers the truth about his parents’ deaths — and about the villain who’s to blame. This first chapter in J.K. Rowling’s wizard saga was a cultural phenomenon.

    The first film in the Harry Potter saga set the tone for the entire series to come. The excellent casting cannot be under-praised. Radcliffe was the perfect Potter, Rupert Grint was a great Ron Weasley, and Emma Watson is a transcendent Hermione Granger. Director Chris Columbus leaned on his “Home Alone” experience to get incredible performances from his young cast.

    Every supporting actor is excellent, too: Richard Harris as Albus Dumbledore, Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall, Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid, John Hurt as Mr. Ollivander, Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy, and the brilliant Alan Rickman as Professor Snape.

    John Williams brings his legendary magic to the music, as well.

    This film is known as “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in the United States.
