Submitted for the approval of the midnight society I present my top ten of the last ten. In creating this list I must admit I was a little bias. I had to re watch a lot of flicks but only the ones I thought really deserved consideration. After realizing that such flicks that are dear to my heart just have no place on this list ( sorry Jersey Girl, Pineapple Express, and Taladega Nights) I came up with the ONLY top ten list anybody ever needs to read... Okay not the only one but this list KICKS ASS!
#10. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
I know what your thinking, why is it so low? It was hard to put this masterpiece all the way at number ten, believe me.
#9. There Will Be Blood
We haven't seen better acting this decade, One of the all time greatest performances in an unforgettable film.
#8. The Diving Bell And The Butterfly
Just WATCH IT and you'll see. It's beauty is undeniable, I'm serious.
Soderbergh's MASTERPIECE! The best ending to any film I've maybe ever seen.
Everything in this movie works...I mean EVERYTHING! You couldn't ask for anything more in a blockbuster. I'll forever watch Ridley and Russell together. Any day of the week. I cry every time I watch.
#5. The Beat That My Heart Skipped
Romain Duris' acting blows my mind in this ridiculously awesome re-make of James Toback's "Fingers". I've never seen a film like this. And very few leave me in awe the way this one did.
#4. The Departed
I'm just gonna state the obvious here... Jack, Matty D, Leo, Marky Mark, Father Sheen, FUCKIN ALEC, the gorgeous Vera, and Marty Scorsese!!! PERFECTION! I will forever LOVE this film!
#3. It's All Gone Pete Tong
I wanna share this film with the WORLD!
#2. City Of God
I have to quote my man Roger Ebert here, "One of the best films you'll ever see." He's soooo right.
#1. 25th Hour
Spike Lee's best film since Do The Right Thing, and that's saying a lot. To me this is what movies are made for. No other film does to me what this one does...no other.
Public Apologies to my runner ups: Punch Drunk Love, Before Sunset, The Royal Tenenbaums and Dinner Rush...
Tune in next time (Mom) for my ten best of the year.

Okay, so I'm super new to this whole blogging thing. And yes I must say I was pretty much inspired by Amy Adams in Julie and Julia, not so much the real person who that flick was based on although she seems awesome, but the fact that Amy Adams was doing it, I wanna do it too. I've decided to blog about the only thing I know about...MOVIES! And I KNOW about movies. So my introduction to the blogging world will be simple and sweet...I will blog about my boy Matt Damon, but not just yet, let me tell you a little about me. It was a dark and stormy night in Brooklyn, NY where I currently reside and I had an epiphany of sorts. I could do one of two things, I could log onto one of those ADULT FINDER sites and find "sexy singles in my area" or I could start a BLOG and tell the world everything they need to know about movies... and I mean everything! So let me get right to it and tell ya'll what's up! I hate to ramble on but my new roomates who seem un-real cause they're so nice, have dvr'd America's Next Top Model and I can't ignore the hilarity I hear coming from this tv in the other room... Who the f%#k is LAURA??? Anyway, back to Matt Damon... I just recently saw The INFORMANT, another Steven Soderbergh flick that will probably go un-noticed once again (eg, The Girlfriend Expierence, or dare I say Full Frontal) You could skip BUBBLE, but Eros is worth checkin out...I guess! Sorry about that, I was kinda, just a little bit flexin my knowledge! Back to Matty D... So The Informant kicks ass, he was fuckin hilarious on Entourage, basically came across as the worlds greatest human bieng in an amazing article in Esquire I read earlier today while I was taking a s*&t at work. He has another "rockin the shit" (thank you Paul Rudd) action flick by Paul Greengrass comin out next year and I just caught him in a preview of the new Clint Eastwood film. Oh, ya'll know that's gonna be good! So bottom line, welcome to my new blogging world, which is probably gonna consist of me and my mother (they sure can be supportive eh) for a long period of time, or until I post naked pictures of Bea Arthur on my site...TOO SOON??? I hope this reaches you somehow, until next time let me leave you with a two words, THE DEPARTED!!! He owned that movie! You know he did!!! Later.
