My plan has been to start this revival up with a bang and do my top films of the year. However, there's been a bit of a problem with that. I can't seem to make the list. It's more difficult than I could have imagined. This year was too great for movies. My entire top ten consists of 9's and 10's (out of 10). Some even roll over into 11-20. So how could I make a top ten list when it wouldn't be representative of the films I loved during 2009. So I settled on a Top 25 list. It's still been rather difficult to put them in a desirable order. I just love the films so equally that it's difficult to discern an exact order. But I've been doing my best.
Another problem with my list is that I want to see as many of what people consider to be the "best movies of the year" so that my list can be as close to complete as possible. So I still have some more to go (such as Precious, Brothers, The Road). Even now I am watching The Men Who Stare At Goats. And this film further solidifies my theory that this may be the best year for movies in years upon years. I can definitely call it the best year of the decade, but I may go even further than that. That's how great this year has been.
So hopefully I can get through the remaining films by this weekend so that I'll have a strong opinion on all of the nominees and whoever wins. Hell, why else would I watch a film like Precious?
One thing I'm also looking to do is a list of my own little awards type thing only with out the award or even a winner. Just some nominees for whoever I feel like gave the best performances, had the best cinematography, etc. So I'll probably put those up as well. Well, my food is about here so I'll wrap this up. Hopefully I can keep up with this and continue writing since I don't really have much of an outlet otherwise.
