I Gotta Feeling vs. I Want You to Want Me

The Beatles feel more than fine after narrowly defeating KC and his band of sunshine. Wednesday's matchup probably couldn't pit two more different songs that were released nearly 30 years apart.

Obstructed reView: Boston

Just a simple series of recommendations, today. Let’s look back at some of the best Boston movies. I find that I can only take so much media speculation at times like these, so it’s useful to take a step back and just breathe until there is more factual information for journalists and news readers to impart.

Obstructed reView: Career Day with Gena Rowlands

As a rule, I don’t want to know anything about an actor’s personal life. I don’t like having perspective on why she chose a certain character or what was happening with him that all he did was cry his way through that performance.
