The Obligatory Christmas Posting

Okay, so I couldn't really think of something deep and profound to say on Christmas Eve, so..... I'll talk about my favorite movies of this year. The year's practically over, so I'll call it the Top 10 Films of the Year. It is possible I may miss a movie or two, since I'm doing this by memory, so I encourage you all to share too. These movies aren't really in any order, since my love of each increases or decreases depending on my movie mood.

Ratatouille: A rat, that cooks? Food that looks so delectable that I collected drool in my theatre soda cup? Yep, at the top of my list.

Death At A Funeral: Pure British Gold. You want a movie that makes you pee your pants non-stop throughout the film? This is it.

300: THIS IS...SPARTA! Tee hee hee... Nearly naked men, bloodshed galore, Rodrigo Santoro (even if he does look a little cheesy).... geez, it even got MY testosterone pumping.

No Country For Old Men: You want a disturbing movie? You want a movie that practically at the beginning makes you think, "Oh, the good guy is totally f*cked." This is it. It'll haunt you for days.

Juno: Morbidly funny flick that had me crying half the time. It's special.

Shoot 'Em Up: Having a guy have sex with stunning Monica Bellucci while shooting a bunch of goons after him? That's called Not Taking Yourself Seriously. And that's what makes this flick so much fun.

Death Proof: You know, I have to admit I'm just not a fan of Quentin Tarantino. I don't see anything interesting in most of his work. And I usually don't get why people say he's a freakin' genius. But Death Proof? Death Proof was great. But then, when you have a bunch of sexy girls beating the crap out of a middle-aged creep, you've got my respect there.

28 Weeks Later: I love zombies and vampires, but it's so rare to come across an actually decent flick featuring either. 28 Weeks Later is more than a decent flick, and it's just as enjoyable as the first. Zombies kick ass!

The Bourne Ultimatum: The Bourne Identity was all right. The Bourne Supremacy was a little less than all right. The Bourne Ultimatum... well, it was a LOT more than all right.

The Mist: Creepy S**t. And I'm not talking about the monsters. I'm talking about the crazy-psycho-killer people. And the end? Wow. Just, wow.

There were a few others that I did enjoy, but not enough to post on the Top 10 list, so sorry movies. You entertained me, but I shall not honor you. Or promote you. For now.

And now I shall leave you with a Merry Christmas to all, especially Tam, Cinnkitty, Jessie, Karly, Sue, and Pinkbowshoe.

And I shall go remove Celeste from the potty pads. She somehow believes that lying on top of them is comfortable. Thank God I just replaced them and there's no actual potty on them. Stupid dog.

What... no love for Hot Fuzz, Eastern Promises or 3:10 to Yuma (with your favorite actor on the whole planet)?


Jessie said...

*laugh* Sugar, potty pads are apparently like 5 star hotel beds for pugs. Seriously, Wrinks just goes over and gets all comfy...on the other side of where she peed. She's just that special.

Merry Christmas!

I want to see 300, I heard it was good.

And 28 Weeks Later too. It's got my absolutely fav British actor in it...Robert Carlylse. Love him. But, I have been holding off on this one until I see the whole 28 Days Later. I keep seeing one part over and over again. I need to just add it to my Netflix and get it over with. LOL!

Oh, and I didn't get to see I Am Legend last weekend, but I'm hoping this weekend I might. I want to see that one in the theater.

Great choices!!! :D

I'm watching 300 right now, oddly enough. yum..yum....I could bounce quarters off those guys butts and would be happy to lick the sweat from their abs..meow! ;)

P.S. -- Don't waste your time seeing AVP-R..... waste of time! Meh!

Pug & I said...

Wrinkles does that too? Ha, see, I've never seen my pugs do it before, just that one time, so I really was rather shocked. Stupid pugs. :)

300 is great, especially if you like seeing awesomely built men. Yum. And yes, 28 Weeks and Days are both fantastic, and although you don't need to see them in order, it's probably best that way.

Right? Totally hot men in 300. And as for AvP:R, I wasn't planning on seeing it. Something about movies with no decent plot or action at all doesn't appeal to me. And from the reviews I heard, I wasn't going to shell out $8 to see crap. No thank you. :)

Jessie said...

Yep, she likes to lay on them. NO idea why, either. Except she's a little tapped upstairs.

And AvP:R? No thanks. Mostly because the Crab People (P) suck. Give me Alien any day of the week. They're totally more bad.
