Aught Lists and Global Warming Update

Here’s a compilation of various best-of-the-decade lists for the aughts.  Somewhat amusing, and more proof that Americans prefer easy-to-imbibe lists and statistics to cool hard Vulcan logic any day of the week…

News/Events

Movies

  • Onion AV’s Top 50 Movies: Many of these I agree with, many more I have not seen.  They list 50, so it’s pretty comprehensive.
  • Roger Ebert’s list: He says they’re on there because of the emotional impact they had on him, which is tough to argue with.  I need to see some of these yet, especially Hurt Locker.
  • Scifi Squad’s Movies List: A fairly good list of strictly sci-fi (I need to see a few of these films), and not nearly as bad as a lot of the lists out there.
  • AMC and John Scalzi’s Worst (Major) Sci-Fi Movies:  Scalzi is a good author and an OG sci-fi blogger; a good list, and unfortunately I’ve seen many of these…
  • Top 10 ‘Geek’ Movies:  I guess it’s promising that we the geeks get our list, right?  Newsarama with more power to the geeks!  Most of these are pretty much mainstream…
