T.V. Is Better Than Movies !

Wallycrawler's Ten Best Movies Of The Year .
Well There Aren't 10 Great Movies This Year , That I've Seen !
So This Year It's The Five Best Movies Of The Year .


# 5) Little Miss Sunshine : I love road movies ! This film is a great black satire about a loser family that's striving to win . "Little Miss Sunshine" has the best cast of character actors assembled this year , and they all have rich writing and cleaver lines . This movie will be loved forever . See it once you'll wanna see it again .






#4) United 93 : The story about true American heroes aboard flight 93 on that fatal day in September . Heartbreaking , Heartwarming ! A great tribute to "American Nobles"!



#3) Borat ; Cultural Learning's Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan : Is there anyone that hasn't seen this movie yet ? If you haven't just go on U-Tube , you'll get the idea . Satire at it's best . Are Americans this dumb ...? Ya they are ! In Canada we have a T.V. show called "Talking To Americans" it's very enlightening . Borat is that and more . See it !











#2) Pan's Labyrinth : Stories of little girls innocents , wonder , and imagination have fascinated readers forever . This film is no different . The movie unfolds through the eyes of a dreamy innocent child , Ofelia . Her mother newly married and pregnant to a Spanish army Commander , has put her little girl in a very precarious situation . Ofelia must escape her daily horrors though her imagination ... Winner of the "Best Foreign Language Film" at Cannes .











#1) The Departed : Martin Scorsese based this film on a Hong Kong gangster movie "Internal Affairs" . A connected cop raises through the Boston Police department . Earning a spot in their Special Investigation unit . All the while a S.I. officer is being recruited into the cities Irish mob .


Scorsese Kicks Ass , Again !




This puts me onto the real topic ...Most movies suck !


Television is a way better form of entertainment . At pennies to the dollar .


"Borat" is just a T.V. show, "Ali G" . Just put on the wide screen .


With shows that that entertain as well as enlighten and I say create thought on the networks and cable , it's way better and cheaper to stay home . Here's a list of T.V. shows that are better than any movie this year . Except "The Departed" of coarse !


Wally's Best T.V. shows of 2006 :


Huff , The Shield , Dexter , The Office , The Nine (gone but not forgotten) , Heroes , Lost , Survivor , My Name Is Earl , Entourage , Sopranos , Battlestar Galactica (believe it or not great show , just started watch'n) , Friday Night Lights , 30 Rock , Ugly Betty , Breaking Bonaduce , South Park . And the best show on television ?...

"Family Guy" ! Week in week out the best comedy/satire on T.V.

Maybe Ever !

I've only seen United Flight 93 because I agree, most movies suck and 99% of the time I'm disappointed. I will rent them when they come out. Sure, there's something about the big screen, but it really doesn't bother me.

I agree with most of the TV shows. I only watch comedy or PBS. Speaking of PBS, last night there was a Frontline called "The Dark Side." If you havent seen it, I recommend you do. You can find it here.

I never watch movies until they come on TV. & that's only late at night when I can't sleep. Usually they are really old by then.

TV shows? I watch Book TV, Court TV, The history Channel.
BUT...I do love Family guy!

I>t so your the one that watches "Book TV" ?

I must admit I never heard of that Channel/Network ? Who knew ?

Now "Court TV" is more my speed . I was glued to it dur'n the Simpson case . "The History Channel" is kind'a good too .
