Hey now! This week "of the week" becomes "of the year."
After we eat, Christmas is the time for Jews to go to the movies. Just got back from a pretty crowded multiplex and figure it's time to rundown my favorite flicks of 2007. Probably half the new movies I should see will get seen on DVD some time next year, so take that into account, I only have so much free time, and if I get out of the house, pretty good chance I'll be seeing music and not some heady cinema.
Those caveats aside, I will say that two movies stand head and shoulders above the rest for me and I'm not sure anything will bump them from positions 1 & 1a, those being "No Country for Old Men" briefly discussed here and "Ratatouille" which I saw in the theater and several times on DVD and still find completely amazing on so many levels -- you don't need no kids, one of the better meditations on art, artists and art criticism you'll find.
A lot of comedies this year, not sure what that means, war in Iraq and blah ha blah ha blah...
- No Country for Old Men
- Bourne Ultimatum
- The Simpsons Movie
- Knocked Up
- Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
- The Lives of Others
- Hot Fuzz
I know I've missed a lot, what should be on the top of my Netflix queue?
