An absurdly great year for film leads to me throwing out my usual system.
As usual, there was a ton of good TV in 2014, and even a lot of great TV. Here’s my attempt to quantify it.
So… It took almost two months, but here’s the second half of my Top 10 2013 Albums list, just slightly behind schedule. (I suppose moving into a new house with a pregnant wife in her third trimester played a part in that.)
2013 offered a very diverse set of albums from some unlikely places. Here’s Part 1 of my list of the year’s best offerings.
Every year I believe less and less that there’s such a thing as “The Best Film of The Year.” Award shows are fun, but they always seem to honor an excellent film that rubbed the fewest people the wrong way.
As per tradition, my top 10 list is almost always revealed the day before Oscar nominations are announced. Part of this is because I like having my final say before they do, but mostly it’s because it usually takes me this long just to catch up with all of a given year’s releases.
Two weeks into January, and I can finally unveil my Top 10. Better late than never, right?
