It's that time of year again. Time to put together some lists no one gives a toss about.

My best and worst of for this year

Albums

Best:
Cynic - Traced In Air
It's even better than "Focus", IMO. Hopefully Atheist can get around to recording a new album soon, too.
Honourable mentions:Testament - The Formation Of Damnation, Opeth - Watershed (i listed the rest in the metal topic ages ago).
Biggest Letdown:
The Cure - 4:13 Dream
It was just missing something. Badly. My least favourite Cure album.
Children Of Bodom - Blooddrunk
Chidlren Of Bodom continue to get worse everytime they hit the studio. Give it up.
Worst
Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night
The next time i hear one of their songs, the puppy gets it. Normally a metal album gets this award, but those smarmy turd burglers really piss me off.

Movies

Best
The Dark Knight
Honourable mentions
Iron Man
Tropic Thunder

Biggest Letdown
tie between 'Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Lost Skull' and 'Quantum Of Solace'. Who am i kidding? Aliens??? Lucas, GTFO!

Worst
So much choice. Twilight, Superhero Movie, Disaster Movie, Meet The Spartans, Australia, Sex & The City, The X-Files: I Want To Believe, Speed Racer, 10,000 BC, Jumper, but for pure bastardism, you can't go past Disney's very own High School Musical 3. Not that i've seen it or anything.

Games

Best
GTA IV
Fallout 3


Biggest Letdown
Tie between Fable 2 and The Force Unleashed.

Worst
Alone In The Dark

I don't see why people get pissed off at Aliens in the last Indiana Jones. It actually talks about a theory that Aliens visited the Earth a very long time ago and basically made Humans what we are. And they were the ancient Gods etc... and there's a decent amount of evidence too, but it's all speculation, but at least the film tried to delve into it in some way

And for fuck sake, how is it that the other stupid shit that was in the other Indiana films was somehow perfectly acceptable but this isn't, that's what pisses me off the most. I think most people just say "Aliens wtf" because alot of other people are saying that, it's the classic Sheep/Crowd effect and you always see it on the internet

You speak the truth.

Uh, here be mine, i've only done games and music since I don't really watch many films:

Music:

Best: A tie between Killah Priest's Behind The Stained Glass and Immortal Technique's The 3rd World, i'd go for KP.

Biggest Letdown: Metallica - Death Magnetic, don't get me wrong, it's a good album, better than St. Anger, but I can't really get into it like I can with old 'tallica albums.

Worst: Any crappy gangsta/crunk rap albums that display little talent and generally give rap a bad name, I dunno since I don't listen to it.

Games:

Best: GTA IV PS3 - no contest.

Biggest Letdown: - GTA IV PC - Installed it, tried to play it, uninstalled it.

Worst: Don't really have one since I buy so few games but Smackdown vs. Raw 09 was probably the most disappointing.

There, I like to be brief.

I'm so bad at these because I hardly ever buy new music.

Music

Good

Krallice - s/t
Earth - The Bees Made Honey In the Lion's Skull
Secret Chiefs 3 Plays John Zorn - Xaphan: Book Of Angels Volume 9
Heavensore - Asmodai
Runhild Gammelsaeter - Amplicon
Meshuggah - Obzen

Bad

Scars on Broadway - s/t
Slipknot - All Hope Is Gone
Venetian Snares - Detrimentalist (most albums keep me listening but this one doesn't, so it is a bad Venetian Snares album--not such a bad release period though)
Protestant - The Hate. The Hollow
Drumcorps - Altered Beast (it just seemed so dry after the first song, not the best Aaron has released)
Broken Note - Fueling the Fire (compared to the rest of BN, this release sucks)

Movies

Good

Sex Drive
My Best Friend's Girlfriend
Journey To the Center of the Earth 3D
Pineapple Express
Step Brothers
Dark Knight
Hancock
Iron Man
Tropic Thunder
Cloverfield (I'll defend this movie like hell)
21
Harold and Kumar: Escape From Gitmo (surpassed the first one!)
Hancock

Bad
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (too corny to be a follow up from the previous Mummys)
X-Files: I Want To Believe (as a movie it was bad, but it would have been an excellent two-part episode)
The Happening (I didn't feel the utter confusion and terror like Shyamalan boasted... it was okay but it didn't live up)
Death Race
Be Kind, Rewind
Jumper (stay in Star Wars you stiff moron...)
10,000 BC (CGI and a historically incorrect bastardization of the Maya)
Wanted (nigga please)
The Ruins (borderline okay but the book was better)
The Love Guru (...)
Eagle Eye (took Dawson away from Zack and Miri)


Games

Good

GTAIV (borderline not good enough though)
Left 4 Dead

Bad
... haven't really played any bad games or any games at all


This was hard to do.

The ending was a little dumb. And the CG gophers were absurd as well. The movie was still very entertaining.

Because it's retarded. Most Indiana Jones plots are retarded, but this one had aliens. wtf.

I don't read much movie analysis on the Internet, so it's hardly coming from that, it's undeniably stupid.

But then, so is the lead fridge, for hundreds of reasons (lol half value thickness of lead for all radiation is now 0.05mm).

Similar sentiment expressed here, except sub "sober" for "bothered to look up what films I saw this year and which ones were last year".

Just a little less than the evidence for the Flying Spaghetti Monster. RnR it if you'd like to disagree...I remember Neonspinnaz trying to argue sentient panspermia before, it was one of the boards' funniest topics ever, so go.
