Best Films of 2007: Why I'm in the Dark
When 2007 came to a close, I had fun putting together a list of my favourite songs and my favourite television shows of the year. I'd love to be able to put together a list of my favourite movies of 2007, but I can't do that. Nope, that ain't how I roll.
I'm typically a solid year behind in my movie watching. I catch 90% of my movies on The Movie Network On Demand, a Canadian digital channel I subscribe to. Movies don't get On Demand status until well after they're released on DVD. Night at the Museum, a movie I watched last night, only hit On Demand yesterday, a full 54 weeks after it was released to theatres. The other 10% of movies I see are either in the movie theatre, on DVD or regular television.
What I ought to do is a best of 2006 list at the end of 2007 and a best of 2007 list at the end of 2008. Or, I can just list the ten best films I saw in 2007, regardless of when the movie was released. Heck, I'll do that right now.
- The Queen
- Knocked Up
- The Simpsons Movie
- The Pursuit of Happyness
- Pan's Labyrinth
- The History Boys
- The Last King of Scotland
- Blood Diamond
