Welcome, everyone, to the first annual Amazees!
What are the Amazees!, you ask? Well, I love awards shows, making lists, and talking about things I love, so I decided to combine them all and celebrate the stuff that made me happy this past year. Oh, I also like using the word �amazing.� And, thus, the Amazees! were born!
Check out this sophisticated artist rendering of what an Amazee! looks like:
When I first saw Benjamin Button
more than a month ago I was obsessed with it. Instead of proclaiming it the best movie of 2008, though, I decided to let the experience sink in a little and see it again when it opened on Christmas Day. I did. And it is still my favorite movie of the year.
As much as I adore Slumdog Millionaire
, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
affected me on a level no movie has in years. The first time I saw it I continued to cry for at least ten minutes straight after the closing credits rolled. That�s one powerful piece of art! David Fincher�s masterpiece is like a modern day fairy tale, displaying some of the most technical wonder -- from the jaw-dropping visual effects to the stunning camera work -- I have ever seen on the big screen.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
is a movie I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life.
Honorable Mentions: Slumdog Millionaire, WALL-E
