The Ten Best Films of 2009

The Ten Best Films of 2009

This was a very good year in film, and my first (partial) year as a blogger. Below are the ten films that have best stood the test of time. 10.) In the Loop Profanity has never been better used than in this frightening satire of government ineptitude. The film is very British and very, very […]

2010 OSCARS: Recapping the Show

Ugh, can we do that one over again? I’m not only referring to my predictions which were uncharacteristically poor, but also the show itself.

Avatar Review
