As I stated in the previous paragraph, I've seen a large amount of movies. There was a point where I went to the movies every week, if not every other week. I think the only people to see more movies than me this year would be my parents, they see EVERYTHING.
In my list, I will include movies that had great story lines, great action, hilarity, etc. Which means, there will be some movies that will probably never be nominated to receive an award, but is just entertaining.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Iron Man 2
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
The Book of Eli
The Karate Kid
Tron Legacy (even though I haven't seen it yet, I already know its going to be great)
This year there were a lot of returning shows as well as an influx of new series. We had gold stars like Hawaii 5-0 and duds like Law and Order: LA. I could include everything under the sun, but I think I'm going to stick with the ones I happen to enjoy.
The Walking Dead - AMC
Hawaii 5-0 - CBS
Detroit 1-8-7 - ABC
SuperNatural - CW
The Venture Bros. - Adult Swim
Two and a Half Men - CBS
Law and Order: SVU
Burn Notice - USA
The Boondocks - Adult Swim
Entourage - HBO
Community - NBC
As stated before, there were some good shows on TV this year, however I wanted to single out two real quick. The first being The Walking Dead. The series is based off a comic book of the same name and premiered on Halloween night and chronicles the lives of a group of people trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. What makes the series so good is not just the fear of zombies, but the inner and outer turmoil of the characters. The first season is only 6 episodes long, but after an amazing debut (AMC's highest rated show ever), a second season of 13 episodes has been confirmed. If you haven't had the chance to check it out, I suggest that you do.
The second series I wanted to comment on was The Boondocks. I don't think I have to give any back story on The Boondocks other than that 1. its an amazing animated show and 2. it takes forever and a day to make. This season isn't any different. The animation has gotten better and the show creators are taking more risks with their topics and I love it. The Boondocks is one of few shows that is not scared to satire things/people that are loved or hated. For example, the Obama Supporter episode (1st episode, "It's A Black President, Huey Freeman") is a perfect example. The language is harsh, the topics are intelligent and it is all done with a humorous touch; that's what I call a trifecta. And they say cartoons are for kids.
Day 2 of my Year in Review has concluded. I probably missed a few things, but guess what, I'm only human. Next up, electronic home video games or just video games for you nerds.
oh yeah, 5 days.
