A Decade Under The Influence..

My weekly porn, Entertainment Weekly, is a Decade Edition. Basically this means it's full of LISTS!!! List of "The Best of ____ in the Past Decade".
For the most part I agree with these lists so I figured I would share these, gather your thoughts on the matter.
Now remember even if you aren't a fan some of this stuff can still be called awesome and Best of simply because of the impact it made from 2000-2009.
Here we go:
1. Lord of the Rings
2. Brokeback Mountain
3. Gladiator
4. The Dark Knight
5. WALL * E
6. Moulin Rouge!
7. Children of Men
8. The 40 Year Old Virgin
9. Lost in Translation
10. Almost Famous
*My thoughts on this list: Accurate aside for Number Nine. Really? I love an indie film, I'm an artsy type of gal, but I just thought Lost in Translation was shite. It was supposed to be profound. I just found it boring and weird. Even the cinematography was lacking.
I think we left out:
-There Will Be Blood
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
-HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. The Sopranos
2. Lost
3. The Daily Show
4. American Idol
5. Arrested Development
6. The Wire
7. The Office (U.K.)
8. The Shield
9. Gilmore Girls
10. The Comeback
*My thoughts- Lets all give thanks to Ray J that the Office (U.S) didn't make this. I'm just finding that it's getting away from the basic principle that Ricky Gervais started with. I can't watch it anymore. I'm not a huge telly fan but I will say Sopranos deserves to be number one and Arrested Development deserves a spot on that list.
Maybe Project Runway should have made it as well.
1. College Dropout-Kayne West
2. The Blueprint-Jay Z
3. Kid A-Radiohead
4. Skankonia-Outkast
5. Love and Theft-Bob Dylan
6. Home-Dixie Chicks
7. Funeral-Arcade Fire
8. I Am..Sasha Fierce-Beyonce
9. Future/SEx/LoveSounds-Justin T
10. You Are Free-Cat Power
* My thoughts:
Say what you want about grumpy, pushy Kanye..the man deserves number one. He's musically genius. I am liking the JT, Radiohead, Beyonce love but we are forgetting Lady Gaga here.
She's only come out this year, I know it's a little late but she is making some music/entertainment history already. She's pop gold and super talented lyrically and vocally. Don't hate folks...just think about it...
So you know my thoughts, what are yours? Anyone left off the list in your opinion? Anyone deserve to not be on the lists?

I love Gaga, but I fail to see how Kanye is a musical or any sort of genius. And it's not just because I don't like him personally. I just don't get what the big deal is.

For the movies list, I'd include "The Departed" and "Amelie".

I'm surprised "30 Rock" didn't make the TV Top 10.

For the music list, India.Arie's "Acoustic Soul" would have made my top 10.

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit December 9, 2009 at 6:21 PM  

Kanye has his moments. He's a bit of a curate's egg, really.

And how can any "Best TV of the '00s" list be complete without Doctor Who???!!! (Unless they're excluding non-US shows)

I agree Malcolm-Departed was amazing.

Richard: Of course Dr. Who would have to make it on there! My brother is obsessed with that show :)

Did anyone notice Johnny Depp's weirdly bloated HEAD on the cover??? I have yet to make it through the magazine itself because I am so distracted by his wierdly bloated homage to Jack Skellington bobble head noggin on the cover...

Or is it just me?

(No, I just looked again. Weird head on the cover...)
