It's time for the 2nd annual, [clever title] Best Of List!
Unfortunately, my wireless internet connection is down at my apartment, so I've been squatting at the local wifi cafe, spending money on food, so I can feel better about sitting here for hours. Last year, I was able to write this list on New Year's Eve. Not sure what I'll be doing that day, so I thought I'd get this done while I know I have time.
Be Kind Rewind
(I can't believe I didn't see Tropic Thunder, Quantum of Solace, The Wackness, and Rachel Getting Married.)
