Ebert's Top Ten

Roger Ebert has come out with his annual "Best Movies of the Year" list, and he's got Clint Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby" (which I haven't seen and probably won't) as #1, followed by "Kill Bill Vol. 2," "Vera Drake," "Spider-man 2," and "Moolade." I expect "Spider-man" will be the only common denominator between my top ten and his.

I'm working on my own year-end stuff that should be posted sometime next week; I'll have my top tens for movies, music, and TV, as well as the annual awards, and (of course) the Shameful Events list. Here's last year's version.

Clearly, Ebert been's on crack for most of this year, giving too many 4 star ratings to what should be 2 star films..I didn't see Eternal Sunshine on the list...which in my mind is very weird...and no offense, but Clint Eastwood ain't all that.

Spiderman 2? Really? It fell so below my expectations.

I have zero respect for the opinion of Roger Ebert. I'm looking forward to your list, however, Steve.

Ebert's been gradually getting worse and worse ever since Gene Siskel died: he doesn't have anyone to seriously deflate his pomposity anymore (Roeper is a non-entity).

We're all anxiously waiting by our computers...holding our breath.
