C-Dog's Belated 2004 Best Ofs

Movies, music, books, and games -- the lot of it took a back seat to sports last year. The dual UConn Championships back in the spring, then the Red Sox in the fall are what defined 2004 in terms of entertainment for me. Keeping up with the teams didn't leave much time for anything else.

Best Movies Released in 2004

1. Fahrenheit 9-11

2. Lost in Translation oops

3. Spider Man 2

4. Ocean's 12

5. (tie) Collateral & Man on Fire & The Bourne Supremacy & Kill Bill 2

2004 Movies I Still Want to See that May Have Made the List

1. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

2. Shaun of the Dead


1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ~yawns~

2. King Arthur

Best Movie of the Last Few Years That I Finally Saw in 2004

City of God (Cidade de Deus)

Slim pickings for tv in 2004. Lost got out of the gate strong, but is fading fast. Alias finished last season OK, but has finally become unwatchable. Enterprise remains unwatchable. No Whedon shows. Arrested Develpment has been funny, but I'm having a hard time thinking of anything else. Plenty of poker shows, of course. The rest is a glut of worthless to worse than worthless 'reality' shows. Thank goodness for NESN, ESPN, and occasional bright spots on Public TV and channels like IFC, Bravo, A&E, Turner Classic Movies, BBC America, Comedy Central and even the Cartoon Network (Adult Swim).
