Movie of the Year: 2002

Movie of the Year: 2002


The 2002 Movie of the Year Introduction is here; which of these amazing films will take home the most coveted prize in Hollywood?

The 2002 season is here, and though we are sad to see the 1982 season end, we have never been more “jazzed” to tackle a year. We got a Spider-Man in this year, a Blade sequel, and a Steven Spielberg adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story with Minority Report. I know what you’re thinking: wow, with all these great motion pictures (in addition to your own personal strengths) you must be in movie heaven. Maybe this is heaven for you, the intelligent and tasteful listener, but this is actually a hellish experience for us.

But how could this be?

See, we love the movies of 2002 because they came at a very important time in our lives: earlier. Oh, earlier, we never appreciated you before, but now you’re all we want. These were the movies we reshelved at Blockbuster Video. These were the movies we hopped from theater to theater to see after buying one matinee ticket at 10:30AM. And with 32 important movies and only 8 final slots in out 2002 bracket, we know we are going to break a few hearts–our own!

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
