I don’t know what your plans are this evening, but have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve. Here’s hoping 2010 is a helluva lot better than 2009! Cheers!

Oh how I’ve missed these.
And we can’t forget the original:
I slacked at the cinema this year. I can’t believe it. We’re nearing the end of 2009 and here’s what I HAVE NOT seen: Up in the Air, Precious, Where the Wild Things Are, Moon, An Education, and A Serious Man. I feel somewhat defeated, so without further ado here are my top 10 favorites of 2009:
#10 Up – I’m not a big cartoon fan but Up roped me in. The 5 minute montage of courtship, marriage, and old age is heavy enough to make the hardest of people teary-eyed.

I’ve really been digging on this song since I saw The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I think you’ll dig it too. Top 10 films of the year list coming soon.
#10 Carrie Underwood – She might have been higher on my list but she’s now officially off the market (not that I ever had a chance). She’s talented, sexy, and she’s not afraid to wear hooker boots. Not too shabby.

Great Monday Night Football game last night. I’m not sure if preventing the Vikings from having homefield advantage in the NFC was enough to keep Lovie’s job safe, but we’ll see. I want to give a big shout out to Chet’s friend and Nashville native Hunter Hillenmeyer (#92) who played like a man possessed. He had 15 tackles and poked the ball out from Adrian Peterson (above clip) that enabled the Bears to win it in overtime. Bear down Chicago Bears!
My thoughts and prayers go out to the G’House family right now. If you have any extra prayers, please pray that they are able to be stong through this difficult time.
I went to see Sherlock Holmes last night and I loved it. Having never seen nor read any of his previous adventures, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ll admit my expectations were somewhat low after reading a couple of reviews that mentioned the story lacking in depth. I was even somewhat frustrated while watching the movie as I tried to piece together some of what I considered plot holes. But when the movie ended and the mystery was solved I only wanted more – which I will get when the sequel comes out.
The film isn’t an Oscar contender by any means, but that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable – thanks to strong performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Understand ahead of time that the film wants you to get lost in the plot details. It’s a mystery. It’ll all make sense in the end.
3 out of 5 stars
This is amazing. It’s a video of some Italian dude who decided to make a parody of American 60’s pop songs made up entirely of a gibberish intended to sound like English. It’s spot on.
