Top Lists of 2010!

2010 was a year of great highs and lows for me, I graduated, saw my bands album on iTunes and had a flurry of negative family energy to deal with at times, but… we get through these things! Certainly, the year itself was very up and down within the media and entertainment industries, and much like the end of 2009 for sturgeonmusic – here are my top 5 lists for 2010 – Happy new Year!

Number 4 – Great Television

This was a very hard category to choose, to get the right mix of news vs entertainment coverage. No doubt, the year saw some amazing images brought to us right in our living rooms, and not to mention the unveiling of people and stories both iconic and memorable –

Number 5 : The Amazing Race – Claire Champlin’s watermelon to the face, painful.

Number 4 : Lost – The Finale, let down?

Number 3 : Top Gear – The Stig’s identity ‘revealed’.

Number 2 : Wimbledon 2010 – The first-round match between Nicolas Mahut and John Isner that lasted an incredible 11 hours, 5 minutes.

Number 1 : The Chilean Mine rescue – truly grasping the world.

Number 3 – Gaming

With the vast leaps in technology that occurred towards the end of 2010, gaming was taken to a whole new level. The 3D home experience, finer quality HD at a reasonable price, and a huge selection of mind blowing cinematic pieces of art –

Number 5 : Bioshock 2 – moving, touching, sickening, violent, gorgeous.

Number 4 : Heavy Rain – Truly a ground-breaking piece of kit.

Number 3 : Call of Duty – Black Ops (or black cops if you’ve seen the parody)

Number 2 : Gran Turismo 5 – it finally came out!

Number 1 : Assasins Creed Brotherhood – Truly amazing.

Number 2 – Music

mmm… funky…. I think thats the phrase to best sum up 2010 as a year of fresh new music, classic links to old styles and returns of popular fan favorites. We also had some sad loses in the worlds most interesting genre of music –

Number 5 : Teenage Dream – Katy Perry ruled the charts.

Number 4 : Mike Portnoy leaves progressive giants Dream Theater.

Number 3 : Kings of Leon release Come Around Sundown to great success.

Number 2 : Slipknot’s bassist, Paul Gray is found dead.

Number 1 : Cee-Lo Green’s F**k You captures the nation.

Number 1 – The Movies

Yet another blockbusting year leads me to the last point of my top listing round up of 2010, the movies! –

Number 5 : The Expendables – A true mans action film, and it has all the stars… nearly!

Number 4 : Kickass – Taking comic book hero’s to a more accessible level.

Number 3 : Jackass 3D – The most creative use of 3D I have seen so far…

Number 2 : Toy Story 3 – My childhood memories and loves come to an emotional end!

Number 1 : Tron legacy – The film that blew my socks off, and for every aspect, especially the soundtrack. Simply incredible.
