Best of the decade

12.03.2009

Entertainment Weekly has assembled their Best Everything of Decade list, which is “The 100 greatest movies, TV shows, albums, books, characters, scenes, songs, dresses, videos, and trends that entertained us over the past 10 years.”

How exactly do you compare a great TV show to a song to a fabulous dress? I’ve no idea, but here’s how their top 20 breaks down:

1) A Boy Named Harry Potter

2) The Sopranos

3) YouTube

4) The Lord of the Rings

5) Lost

6) The College Dropout, Kanye West

7) iPod

8) The Daily Show

9) American Idol

10) Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video

11) Brokeback Mountain

12) A Scoundrel named Capt. Jack Sparrow

13) Arrested Development

14) Gladiator

15) The Road, Cormac McCarthy

16) Facebook

17) The Dark Knight

18) The clothes from SATC

19) “The Landlord” video

20) Buffy The Vampire Slayer, “The Body”

Wow, I guess Beyonce really did have one of the greatest videos OF ALL TIME. But seeing as we’re a movie site, how do you feel about LORD OF THE RINGS, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, GLADIATOR and THE DARK KNIGHT being the movie picks for the list, and I guess Harry Potter and Jack Sparrow as well, if you expand the definition? I’m surprisingly alright with those actually, as they have been some of my favorite films of the past ten years.

I’m also pumped that “The Daily Show,” “Lost” and “Arrested Development” made the top twenty, but I would sub in the “The Wire” for “The Sopranos.” If anything, this has list  taught me that EW and I have pretty similar tastes in pop culture. 

To see the whole list, pick up the actual issue when it hits stands tomorrow.

Extra Tidbit: Every viral video on the planet and you pick The Landlord? Ehhh.

Lame

It's hard enough to justify ranking pieces of pop culture in order when sticking to one genre (movies, music, etc.) and this list is quite inane. What's the criteria of judgement that youtube and Gladiator share? And EW never misses the opportunity to jump on Joss Whedon's dick. No offense, BTVS fans.

I can think of 20 different movies alone over the past decade that were better than brokeback mountain. I say that is truly an OVERrated flick.

@ skip...

I am laughing right now, because I can't determine whether the person who "thumbs up'ed" your post was agreeing that the list was spot on...

or that you are a huge asshole.

Wow...

I guess I'm a huge asshole, because I seem to think that minus a couple of personal choices, they pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Glad to see BTVS on there, and "The Body" at that...

The Wire over Sopranos?

I know to each his own. I liked The Wire, but I always thought The Sopranos was on a whole different level and laid the path for The Wire.

Really? That piece of crap Beyonce video? I just vomited a little bit..

Glad to see that episode of Buffy made the list. That was truly a remarkable (and VERY grim) experience.

Fuck Beyonce

I'm sick of hearing about how hot she is. Her hair looks stupid and her unnaturally thin waste is disgusting. It makes my penis soft. And that video is shit (so is Swift). You know what rocks? This: [link]

So pumped to see Lost in there at #5. One of the best television shows ever made. I can't believe it's ending this season for good.

People Don't Have Any Patience

Can people not wait 1 month to make their fucking "best of decade lists?" Seriously, you wait 9 years and 11 months, would one more month hurt? What if Sherlock Holmes (doubt it) or Avatar (seriously doubt it) is one of the best movies of the decade? And you blew it? (I'm not suggesting this will happen, but why take the chance?)

Mmm. Like the list, but The Wire is/was one of the greatest TV shows ever.

That Buffy episode was a great tv episode. Not just for the show, but for tv in general.

Not a bad list, awesome that LOST made it, I would have it at #1 though, and I completly agree about substituting The Sopranos with The Wire although I also like the sopranos

EW's lists are always so arbitrary. eyonce’s “Single Ladies” video? "The Landlord"? Are you kidding me? The only shocking thing is that they didn't shoehorn TWILIGHT in there.
