Welcome to Pas de Joie Cinema where I will unapologetically comment on films that are without joy, challenge or kill your joy, or maybe just suck the joy right out of you.
Lemme tell you a little of what you might expect.
1. Film synopsis with spoiler alerts. And there will be spoilers, because it’s my commentary and I will spoil your already joyless experience if I want to. I NEED to talk about these films.
2. Une Échelle Pas de Joie or scale of joylessness from 0 – 10 for each film along with the corresponding comfort food one might consider to ameliorate the situation.
3. An opportunity for you to share your recipes for same. Omnivore, vegan, everyone!
4. An opportunity for you to share that punched-in-the-guts feeling you got from the film in question and to be met with sympathy from me and anyone else who might be reading.
I do thank you for reading and thank you in advance for your good-natured participation.
PS – Any images used here are not mine. I own nothing and credit when I know whom or what to credit. Most are photo stills available online as promos for the flicks and so, on a general level, let me credit all involved with the making of the individual films.
