Well, I started this blog entry but I never got around to finishing it so I’m just going to post as it is.
In with the new year and out with the old!
Here’s 2007 from me.
Best Day: June 3
Why? I don’t know. I was just basing my answer from the movie Miss Congeniality when the contestant was asked “describe your perfect date”. It’s also Brooke’s birthday. So that makes it even more special.
Best Movie: Ratatouille
Any time Pixar comes out with a movie they are automatically the best movie. I’m a big fan of Pixar movies. The short film “Lifted” which is included on the Ratatouille DVD is hilarious. I love how they are able to convey everything without even speaking a word. Watch out for Wall*e next years Best Movie of the Year. Very exciting!
Worst Movie: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
I know that this movie is a bit old to be even remembered, but this year was the first year I have ever seen the movie and it is by far the worst movie I have seen this year. I love The Beatles and The Bee Gees, but this movie is seriously…. I don’t even know what to say about it it’s that bad.
Sweetest Movie Poster: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
You mean they are actually coming out with Indiana Jones 4?! I know I have been waiting for this movie for the last ten years since I started hearing rumors. I just hope it is classic Indiana Jones style that satisfies the few adolescent fantasies I can still remember.
