I've been a bad, bad, bad little blogger. I don't want to make excuses, but... I will. My day job is all-consuming these days, and it's not a standard desk job that offers blogging opportunities. In fact, I spend most of the day in story meetings and writing sessions, and I barely even have the time to check my email. By the time I get home at night, the last thing I want to do is turn on the computer. And if I do, it better be to get my own writing done. That being said, we're entering into my favorite time of year for movies and I've begun my annual movie binge. I'm hoping it'll get me bloggin' more. In an attempt to kickstart things, I'm posting my preliminary Top 10 for 2004. Admittedly, it's a bit too early. I missed some flicks that have already been released and there is a slew of interesting movies on the way that could shake up the top ten in a big way. But, as I am prone to do, I was reviewing the year in cinema to date and jotted down a little list that got me motivated enough to post.


1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Sideways
3. Touching the Void
4. The Five Obstructions
5. The Incredibles
6. Before Sunset
7. I Heart Huckabees
8. Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
9. Dig!
10. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring
