‘Feel a fool/Running your stateside games…’

Well, I’m back in the UK, having started at least one post for this blog while on holiday at home in Wisconsin. However, I ended up tweeting random things and failing miserably at finishing it as it is a far, far bigger project than I anticipated. In looking for the best movies of the decade…that I’ve seen…I’ve found that I can’t just cut myself down to a Top Ten, because that’d be too simple. And I might have seen less than half of the Best Picture Oscar noms between 2000 and 2009, losing my street cred. Oops.

If you want some film reviews in the meantime, my friend Anita is trying to watch a film a day in 2010. You can find her effort here–she’s not afraid to tell it how it is, which gets major props from me, even when I may or may not agree.

Meanwhile, instead of blogging, I’ll be over here braving the British weather, wherein no one knows what to do with a shovel and a snowy sidewalk. Translation: much slipperiness.

h/t to James Taylor for the subject line, by the way.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I considered making a best of the decade list myself for all of five seconds, until I remembered that I’ve seen well over 500 new releases in the past ten years according to what I added to my I Heart Movies account. It’s just so much to slog through. If I’d been keeping track of things by rating as I went along, that would be different, but obviously I only just started to do that.

    It’s probably knee-jerk of me, but I’ve not even bothered with reading any of the casual best movies of the decade lists some of my friends have made. I assume that if they were so easily-compiled, they’re probably not very well-informed.

  2. Glad you made it back across the pond safely! šŸ™‚ It was nice having you back for a couple weeks!

    Props to Anita for such a massive and interesting undertaking. I’m adding her blog to my reader!
