My favorite movie this year has got to be Inception. Most other movies I watched were old romantic comedies, and my favorites were some of Sandra Bullock. :)

One of my guilty pleasures is watching America's Next Top Model, oh and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders Making the Squad show (I think part of the fascination is that I was never a cheerleader myself and can't dance worth anything.)

The only movies from your list that I've seen were Inception and Sherlock Holmes and I thought they were both alright.

My absolute favorite tv show right now is Doctor Who.

I just started watching Dexter and I am already obsessed! And I can NOT wait until the next season of True Blood!

Emy - We were late to the theater and then could only see Inception in German. I think I would have liked it more if I had seen it in English!

Alyce - I have seen some America's Next Top Model and it is addicting!

Amanda - We are in the middle of True Blood season 3 right now.

Jamie said...

DEXTER! I just started watching it this year. I just finished season 2. SO SO good.

I really enjoyed Inception, and The Social Network is excellent. There are alot of movies on your "still want to see" list that are on mine. Maybe we should get together and do a marathon!

I loved Inception and Harry Potter the most this year, i think... Social Network was also really good! and too many tv shows to name :p great list!

Easy A was pretty fun. Much better than I thought it would be.

Good call on Temple Grandin - I just watched it last night. Excellent acting on Claire Danes' part and the whole family ended up enjoying it!

Staci said...

I loved Toy Story should watch that one soon!!!!

Lenore Appelhans said...

Staci - Daniel put Toy Story 3 on his Christmas list (we're doing our exchange with my family at end of Jan) so maybe he'll get it!

Toy story 3 was really cute but really sad. It is a must see.

I am soooo with you on Splice! I had much higher expectations for that movie!
