Lots of people are out with their ten-best lists for the year. I don’t have one. I can’t think of the ten best movies I saw this year because I didn’t see ten new movies this year unless you count the ones I finally caught up with on HBO. I didn’t read ten new books this year, and I sure didn’t keep up with popular music. So I leave it up to you, reader(s), and I’ll make it easy for you over the next few days. You don’t have to provide a list… unless you want to, and let’s start out with something easy.
What was the best movie you saw this year?
I’ll go with Up, although I did enjoy Star Trek, but for different reasons. Julie & Julia was fun, too; they had me at the opening scene with the arrival of the classic Buick woodie station wagon. And those were the three movies I saw this year. (Wait, wasn’t there a Harry Potter one this year, too?)
