Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) is a Sci-Fi movie with a very unusual plot. People have the ability after a medical procedure to erase a part of their memories that want to forget. If you had the possibility to do something like that, which part of your memories would you choose to erase?

Paok-Kilkis,

My vote:
I would never erase a memory of mine.

as there doesn't seem a place to comment on the entire concept of the poll. this passively negative choice seems the least inappropriate. if losing the memory is not going to change the outcome what would be the point? the pain of the memory is anchored in the changes that specific incident made to your current existence. what i want to change is the consequence. which is not an option in this poll, the film or life. what we all could do well by is a complete video game style reset as in 'Scott Pilgrim...' or a correction of the error as in 'Quantum Leap'. in common vernacular, somebody fix my bloody life!!!

PK,

Movie titles should be in single quotes.

Please change the title of your list from:
If Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Was Real

To:
If 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' Was Real

The title is also grammatically incorrect. It should be "... Were Real", and not "Was Real". The title is a statement in the subjective mood:  https://writingexplained.org/was-vs-were-difference

It's a question of usage. In British English, the subjunctive is less common.

At the time I took the poll, the # 3 most popular answer was "A terrible movie I watched". That's the most lame-ass choice on the list. Think about it. You've got a chance to really impact your psychological state of mind and you choose to erase something that means diddly-squat on the importance scale?! Did people pick this because IMDB is a movie web site and they thought it would be a funny joke to complain about bad movies? Oh well, at least it's a new way for the results of IMDB polls to tick me off.

So far Larry, you have managed complain about how the choices in these polls don't make sense to you. If you were part of the majority or could think like them you would. Oh, and don't give some smart retort about your superiority in thought processing. It is non-existent. You would not comment at all if you were capable of it.
Cheers

I was going to write a thoughtful replay; but based on your comment I don't think it would be worth the time. So fuck you. (Oh, and don't give some smart retort about my not being able to write a thoughtful comment. I can resort to ad hominem attacks about people I don't really know [as you did], and be as insulting and dogmatic as you. I'm done with this thread. And fuck you again, Mr Ed Jones Cocksucker Asshole.)
