So The Road is good? I hope so. I love the book.

I haven't read the book, but the movie is pretty artful unto itself.

Viggo and the kid are great...as is the whole ensemble.

The Hurt Locker is a very good film...

Shalom, y'all!

Stunning, really.

The critic who called it "almost a perfect movie" summed it up pretty well. Maybe the most flawless American film since There Will Be Blood. My top 3 are all really struggling for dominance. Inglourious Basterds may end up back in the #1 slot, but this was a great year all-around for film, so this list is more solid than usual.

I've managed to see all of these except for number four, which opens up here until early next year. It is tough living in Oklahoma...

Shalom, y'all!

So, Hurt Locker is currently #6, but I'm still working on the right order for my top 6. This year was an embarrassment of riches for mainstream Hollywood/bigger "indie" movies.
