A year ago I had a lot to say when it came to great films. Not only did I post My Picks For The Best Films of 2009 (a list of 15 films and 5 documentaries), but I also produced the monster of all posts: My Picks For The Top 100 Films of The Decade.
Well, this year things are a little simpler, as all I've got is a list of my favorite 15 films of the past year.
Last month I posted a rave about that hilarious Sarah Silverman clip called "I'm F*cking Matt Damon", which has now gone on to become one of the most watched clips in internet history. Well, if you liked that then you've most certainly got to watch her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel's response, which is, appropriately enough, called "I'm F*cking Ben Affleck".
Some things in life simply need to be seen. This, I promise you, is definitely one of them. It may not be as good as Sarah's, but it's pretty damn close. And this one's got a whole lot more guest stars and even a spoof of "We Are The World" to boot.
Now this is a must-see for all those who like to laugh. It's a clip by comedian Sarah Silverman called "I'm F*cking Matt Damon", which she introduced on her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel's show a few days back, on January 31st. If you're a fan of Sarah's or of Matt's, or just of comedy in general, you've definitely got to watch this. It's f*cking hilarious! And who knew Matt Damon could be so funny?
Last night I went with my friend Dave to see Martin Scorsese's new film "The Departed", which finally opened here on the Sunshine Coast on Friday night after an excruciatingly long 2-week wait. How was it? Well, absolutely brilliant is probably the most simple and direct way to sum it up. Ok, so I know I use that word "brilliant" a little too often and a little too casually, but in this case it's 100% appropriate. I'm truly a HUGE fan of film, but rarely do I leave a movie feeling as totally pumped as I did last night. I mean, I came out of the theater feeling a lot like Dennis Hopper in "Blue Velvet" - full of insane energy, though mine was the purely positive kind, of course. I was like "Holy shit MAN! Did you see that MAN? $#%& yes man! #$%& yes! Come on MAAAAN!! It just doesn't get much better than that!" I literally drove away shouting "Yeaaaaaah!! Goddamn was that ever amazing!" And I didn't even need to inhale anything to get to that point either. Well, besides an extra large bag of popcorn and a giant iced tea.
