William’s Top Ten of 2009

January 16, 2010

So, your humble Movie Nerdfighter has joined a collab project on YouTube called “In the Great Perhaps

This week, we’re all sharing a list of top ten for the past year.  The choice of list items was completely left up to us.  Of course, I had to share my Top Ten Movies of 2009:

In no particular order:

– The Hurt Locker
– Inglourious Basterds
– A Serious Man
– Up In the Air
– Sherlock Holmes
– Star Trek
– Where the Wild Things Are
– District 9
– (500) Days of Summer
– The Hangover

A few honorable mentions that didn’t make the list:

– Avatar: A visual effects game-changer
– Observe & Report: Great dark comedy from Jody Hill
– Whip It: Love, love, love this movie

There you have it.  Those are my picks.  Thoughts?  Do you agree?  Disagree?

New goal for this year, to post much more regularly to this and my other blogs.

To Boldly Go… To the Great Beyond

December 18, 2008

Sometimes, I hate it when I’m right.

The Trifecta strikes once again.  First it was the Ackermonster, then Bettie Page, and now Majel Barrett-Roddenberry has passed.

The widow of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was there from the beginning.  Starting with the original series as Number One in the pilot and Nurse Chapel for the rest, Majel was the Star Trek mainstay.  As the voice of the computers she appeared in every incarnation of the Trek world.

You will be missed.

who is glad Majel had a chance to once again voice the Enterprise computers for the new Star Trek movie before she passed.
