And soon to be added under December's heading is Iron Man 2. I will find that Netflix DVD somewhere around here. It's been here for 2 months, and we have never gotten around to it, what with all the streaming TV binging. As such, we've switched our Netflix account to streaming only for the time being and will save ourselves the $2 a month. We can always switch it back later. Still, they need that DVD back.

** Indicates my favorite things I saw this year.
-Sherlock Holmes was tons of fun and full of pretty, so I'm not much bothered if you didn't like it.
-Torchwood is fantastic and I have some more "official" thoughts to post about it soon. Go stream it now, please
-Brokeback Mountain, though watched this far after its release, broke my damn heart, to the point where I see a photo of Jake Gyllenhaal and get all misty-eyed. THANKS.

* Indicates things that were very good and I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

Anything re-watched is more or less a recommendation. Either that, or like a horrible freakshow/accident, I couldn't look away. You be the judge.

The strangest movie I saw this year, by far, has to be Good Dick. It has Jason Ritter as a video store clerk, and he has a very strange relationship with a psychologically odd woman who comes into the store. The description on the sleeve doesn't really convey the strangeness. I don't know that I disliked it; I was more perplexed than anything. I'm sure someone more "arty" or prone to film snobbery could tell me how unenlightened I am to the so obvious themes/subtext/blahblahblah, but whatever. You might want to watch it, but you might not enjoy it, that's all I can say.

So there you are -- my compulsive list-making regarding Movies/TV for the year 2010. Stay tuned for the books roundup coming soon.
