As promised on the What I'm Watching Page , this month I've posted my first "All-Time Top 10 Movies" list. As with the TV Shows and Novels, I made a list of what I'd liked and attempted to rank them. The criteria are completely subjective and there are always a few surprises.
The TV List, updated annually since 2006, was updated again for July. I couldn't nominate anything new for the Novels list, so it wasn't updated this year. There were some nominees for the "All-Time Top 30 Songs" list, but that one is so involved I've pulled the procrastination card on it. I just started writing another book, after all... ;-)
Here is my first movies list:
|2010 All-Time Top 10 Movies|
|1||The Truman Show||1998||Comedy-Drama|
|3||The Thirteenth Floor||1999||Science Fiction|
|4||Back to the Future Trilogy||1985||Science Fiction|
|8||Vanilla Sky||2001||Psychological Thriller|
|10||The Matrix Trilogy||1999||Sci-Fi Action|
It's pretty much what I'd expected: the character discovers that something is fake about the world they live in and they struggle to break out (or to change it). The Back To The Future trilogy, a long-time favorite sure to show up on the list, brought time travel (and Groundhog Day, a time loop). Titanic is certainly the least "fantastic" storyline on the list, but it's production was impressive. Office Space simply appealed to me as someone who has to work for a living.
Here is the 2010 TV Shows list:
|2010 All-Time Top 15 TV shows||
|1||Sliders (esp. seasons 1-3)||1995-2000||Science-Fiction|
|4||Haibane Renmei||2002||Anime Fantasy||N|
|6||Star Trek: Voyager||1995-2001||Science-Fiction||+2||-3|
|7||Kino's Journey||2003||Anime Adventure||-1||+2||+3||N|
|9||Touched by an Angel||1994-2003||Family Drama||-2||N|
|10||Star Trek: The Next Generation||1987-1994||Science-Fiction||+2||-6||+1||+1|
|12||Serial Experiments Lain||1998||Anime Cyberpunk||N|
|13||Wolf's Rain||2003||Anime Adventure||-2||N|
|14||Day Break||2006||Action Thriller||N|
|15||Paranoia Agent||2004||Anime Horror-Mystery||-2||-2||N|
I fully expected Lost to unseat Sliders from its number one position this season, but it fell short of my (admittedly high) expectations. Time to see if another show is up for the challenge.
Firefly seems to be fondly remembered, I should watch it again soon. Voyager also crawled up the list, though not as high as it originally was. Serial Experiments Lain is the only new show, and Outlaw Star (also Anime) has finally been unseated from its #15 spot.
And finally, here are the nominees for the (now 2011) music list:
