My Faves of the Year part 1

Best concerts:

  1. Patrick Wolf. Why isn't this guy a huge star?
  2. SunnO))) In some ways hugely annoying but a fantastic experience.
  3. The rest.
Worst concert was Built to Spill at the Independent. This was depressing, so average that I could not even blog about it. Do the band hate each other or what? Is it a crime to be entertaining?

Best films (all watched on DVD on a pathetically small TV):

  • The Lady Eve (1941)
  • Army of Shadows (1969)
  • Black Hawk Down (2001)
  • Children of Men (2006)
  • The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006)
  • This Is England (2006)
  • The Lives of Others (2007)
  • Knocked Up (2007)

Most disappointing films:

  • La Vie en Rose (2007)
  • Hot Fuzz (2007)


  1. If Shaun of the Dead didn't exist maybe Hot Fuzz could be considered a good film.
