Blinded By The Light

NPR’s “Code Switch” podcast ends each episode with one question, “What is the song giving you life?” Mine is “Dang!” by Mac Miller and Anderson.Paak and “Follow The Sun” by India.Arie

I have learned that if you do not like a song or movie, then the song or movie is not for you.  That is how I felt about “Blinded By The Light” .  It was not for me, and I recommend that it not be for you.


From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger

If Lauren wasn’t with me, I would have walked out of this film. Racism, singing scenes and just sad family dynamics were enough to rank “Blinded by the light” as one of the worst films of 2019. It also was too long. I looked at my watch at least 5 times and one time only four minutes had passed. People often ask me why I refuse to see films that involve slavery, the civil rights era, holocaust, apartheid, etc. My answer is that I have seen enough hate in history and even in our current news…why on earth would I pay my good money to go watch it at the movies? “Blinded by the light” was pure rubbish and I’m pissed that I can’t get those 114 minutes back.
