Movie: This one is a tough one for me. There were so many. Dark Knight was ****in' awesome. So was Wall-E, Pineapple Express, etc. But, I think In Bruges takes the cake.

http://www.wallpaperez.net/wallpaper/movie/In-Bruges-1460.jpg

Album: Either Indestructible by Disturbed or Appeal To Reason by Rise Against.

Game: Gears of War 2 without a doubt.

Book: Brisingr by Christopher Paolini

Movie: This is a tough one . . . It's between Iron Man, The Dark Knight, and Wall-E, but I actually think The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will take the cake when its released. For now I think I'll go with Dark Knight.

Album: međ suđ í eyrum viđ spilum endalaust By: Sigur Ros

Hands down.

http://drownedinsound.com/images/37797.jpeg

Game: Fallout 3 . . . though I haven't been able to play much. GTA4 I probably enjoyed more, but I don't actually own that. I'm hoping the award will go to Prince of Persia next week.

T.V. Show: While Season 4 of LOST was friggin amazing, the winner (simply for how surprised I was by how awesome it was) goes to:

12-04-2008, 10:15 PM
Movie: I really liked both the Dark Knight and Wall-E. Also thought Kung Fu Panda was great.

Album: Probably Nine Heavens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nine_Heavens) by Niyaz.

Game: I've really enjoyed Left 4 Dead, even though it hasn't been out that long.

Movie: Wall-E (obviously)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/611rh1O5BYL._SL500_AA240_.jpg
Second place: The Dark Knight

Album: Coldplay - Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/06/VivaLaVida.jpg
Second place: Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple

Game: Left 4 Dead
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/5b/Left4Dead_Windows_cover.jpg
Second place: Rock Band 2

TV Show: Scrubs
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cf/Scrubscard.png
I started watching it this year, and I finished all of the current seasons.

Movie: Edit - **** Wall-e, I haven't even bothered to watch it a second time on DVD, this takes first place!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v123/Tie23/51lSFiazRdL_SS500_.jpg
YEAH!

Album: Immortalizer by Valient Thorr
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v123/Tie23/61WLO4W8uZL-1.jpg
Full of fast rock pure goodness. A song with sweet assed dual acoustic guitars, a song about wrestling moves, and a song called "Tackle the Walrus"... and that's literal, 'nuff said. Also, "Red Flag" has the purest, awesomest guitar intro evar.

Game: Rock Band 2
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v123/Tie23/13117.jpg
Take a wild guess as to why.

TV Show: Uhmm... I guess Mythbusters and P&T had a good season, meh.

Book: Well, I have to admit that I haven't finished a book in a good long time... but I've got plenty on a queve. Bought it this year, pretty thick book, about half way though it ATM.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v123/Tie23/Battle_Royale_Novel_cover.jpg

I did finish this, though...

Movie: Wall-E, since I really havn't seen anything else this year.

Album: Hmmmm, gonna have to go with Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple. It's the only CD that's come out this year that I regularly listen to.

Runner Up - Metallica - Death Magnetic

Game - Rock Band 2 by far. I don't think even WoW has kept me this entertained.

Runner Up - Wrath of the Lich King

Book - LOL BOOKS. The only thing I've read this year was The Amory Wars comics. The entire story of Coheed And Cambrias first cd Second Stage Turbine Blade to be exact.

Movie: http://media.movieweb.com/galleries/4381/posters/poster6.jpg A movie that actually lived up and beyond the hype. I still can't get over how cool it is.

Album:http://hanzelundgretyl.com/images/press/010708.jpg Pretty stagnant year for music compared to last year. Sure the new NIN was cool and all, but Hanzel Und Gretyl get my vote this year.

Game: http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z91/honeylynn23/backgrounds/aaafallout3xbox3601.jpg. Honorable nod to Rock Band 2.

TV Show: http://www.lovefilm.com/lovefilm/images/products/4/107284-large.jpg

I didn't find that movie funny at all. In fact, most of it was cringe-worthy, it wasn't even in the so-bad-it's-good territory. :confused:

Lost is coming back in 2009. Season 4, which was absolutely fantastic, was in 2008.

Game: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
TV Show: I haven't been watching The Office like I should, so Jeopardy!
Book: Either (Even though both didn't come out this year) Atonement by Ian McEwan or Watchmen by Alan Moore & ... I forget his name, and the book is in my mom's car... Dave Gibbons?
