The End is Nine, er, Nigh for 09 #10

I will be counting down the best of the year starting today.

These could be anything pop culture related: TV, comics, books, movies, video games. You name it. Also in addition things I experienced as well.

So let's start the list with Number 10 --

GI JOE: The Rise of Cobra.

Yes, you might remember my review a while back. I recently watched it again since Lew hadn't seen it. It did what it set out to do. Ninja on ninja fights. Laser fights. Destro looking like Destro. Origin story...all the while keeping the masturbation jokes (like another 80's cartoon turned big movie franchise) out of it and keeping it a pretty solid action movie. Eric, Paul, and I went to see this and just had tons of fun. The only problem is that the visual effects look like they were made using a PS2 engine and not something for a major motion picture.

Still, easily one of the more fun experiences going to the movies this year.

Plus, and most importantly, Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols were smokin hot.

I totally agree - this was one of my favourite films of the year (and of course I agree with Chris's comment above!).
