Back Soon

This time of the year is just too busy to do any real blogging, so I’ll be back in January.

I imagine that a lot of people will be making “the best of the 2000’s” lists…best books, movies, etc. from the last decade. I won’t do any lists, but I will say: Movies, by and large, sucked. This was the decade for television. Lost, Battlestar Galactica [BSG], Band of Brothers, and Firefly have had the best writers and producers working in popular film, whether television or movies. Lost and BSG deserve special notice for having the greatest range of characters, with the most realism of virtue and vice, that I’ve ever seen, whether on television or in a movie. And the use of mystery (Lost) and philosophy (BSG), combined with a generous amount of religious references and themes, makes these shows especially worth watching. Meanwhile, the mainstream movie industry mirrors the creative intelligence and moral depth of a pornographer.

  1. Nice to hear you’re still posting! I 1000% agree (that’s no typo) on your opinions of “Lost” & “BSG”… we just finished watching the entire run of BSG on DVD this year, and eagerly look forward to the last season of “Lost”…

  2. Happy Xmas and New year keving. Heres hoping for more of HIM and less of you for you in 2010.
