I’m about a month late, but I figure we are still in very early 2008 so this is still valid. I am going to give you my top 5 of 2007 in a couple of different categories. I know these are highly debatable topics, but these are the ones that come off the top of my head. Please leave your top 5’s in the comment section. I will gladly take some advice.
Top 5 Albums of 2007
1. The pillows – Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
2. The Shins – Wincing the Night Away
3. The Office – A Night At the Ritz
4. Modest Mouse – We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
5. Kevin Drew – Spirit If…
Special Mention: Someone Still Loves you Boris Yelstin – Broom
This album is from 2006, but I just discovered it this year. It is one of my favorite albums ever so please give it a listen.
Top 5 Video Games of 2007
1. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
2. Portal (PC)
3. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii)
4. Team Fortress 2 (PC)
5. Halo 3 (Xbox 360)
Special Mention: Zelda: The Twilight Princess
This ran into the same problem as above with it being released in 2006. However, this gem was released in December of ’06 so it was right on the cuff. I love the Zelda series with all my squishy organs and muscles.
Top 5 Movies of 2007
2. The Darjeeling Limited
3. No Country for Old Men
4. Paris, je t’aime
5. Hot Fuzz
Special Mentions: Transformers and TMNT
I couldn’t very well place this in the Top 5 because to be honest they probably lack the qualities of a good movie, but they get a mention because these were such a major players in my childhood. I was probably giddier than a school girl when I was watching them. If you grew up with these characters you will love the movies.
These are very subject to change upon further review, but this is a quick list of things that stuck out Please check any of these out, if you haven’t already, and tell me what you think.
