Sean’s Top 10s of 2001

Remember this? 2001 was a messy year, and I guess I didn’t get out much, because these lists are not very impressive. I guess I know what year to revisit now. I think I’m going to see how quickly I can write this post, so expect brevity!

Top 10 Films of 2001

10. Zoolander
Sure, it’s stupid. But it is also very quotable, so you can just Dere-lick my balls, capitan.

9. Monsters, Inc.
You know, I’m not even sure if I’ve seen this movie since theaters. If I remember, it’s like an Aah Real Monsters! knock-off, but with that Pixar charm. I remember liking it.

8. A.I. Artificial Intelligence
It’s just so sad. So sad. Don’t watch it. Sure, this is a damn fine film, but you’ll regret all the heartache later.

7. Donnie Darko
The film that inspired a generation of teenagers to be hella lame. This movie is kind of a trip and that song at the end is neat, but chill out people. It’s just one confusing film, all right?

6. Ocean’s Eleven
You don’t often get to see movies this cool. With an all-star cast and a great sense of style, this may not be high art, but it is fun.

5. Black Hawk Down
Why? Because it was cool. Orlando Bloom died like a bitch… Or did he die? Maybe he survived the fall, I don’t remember. Yep.

4. A Beautiful Mind
The legendary duo of Russel Crowe and Paul Bettany lead us through this incredible mind-trip of a film. I like it, even in full screen.

3. Spirited Away
That Miyazaki guy sure knows what he’s doing. I had the privelege of seeing this picture in some theater in Seattle, and the whole family enjoyed it. Doesn’t happen too often, you know.

2. The Royal Tenenbaums
Oh man, I’m such a sucker for Wes Anderson. It’s just a real treat to watch his work, I love his style. I’m so white.

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Why? Well, because back then I was like “that was the coolest thing I ever saw.” But I’d be eating those words after the opening sequence of its sequel. But that was a year later, let’s just remember how much of the early 2000s was dedicated to this immortal series of films.

Top 10 Albums of 2001

10. Gorillaz – Gorillaz
Oh man, this album really brings me back. Remember “Clint Eastwood”? That song was the shit. Oddly enough, my favorite song was the bonus track “19-2000 (Soul Child Remix),” which is one of the band’s most popular tunes. Catchy stuff.

9. Daft Punk – Discovery
I would have never heard of this album if it wasn’t for Cartoon Network airing like an anime movie to a bunch of these tracks. Daft Punk remains the only house/electronic band I would go as far as to say I like, and this album is the main reason for that.

8. Tenacious D – Tenacious D
Ha, ha, ha. Funny.

7. WeezerWeezer (The Green Album)
I’m still trying my best to really get into Weezer. Maybe someday it will happen for me.

6. Death Cab for Cutie – The Photo Album
Death Cab does what they do once again and once again I enjoy it. I’m definitely a bigger fan of their later stuff, but I can’t come up with a real reason for that. Just am. Maybe I’ve just listened to that stuff more.

5. Muse – Origin of Symmetry
Muse gets out there and starts creating a real identity for itself. They are successful. There is much celebration. Nestle illegally uses the song “Feeling Good.” Muse sues them. They win. They donate the money to charity. Much celebration.

Radiohead – Amnesiac
This album is treated as Kid A‘s retarded little brother. While that isn’t fair, I do see where that criticism comes from, since I have listened to this album and thought to myself “Hey, why don’t I just listen to Kid A?” Still good though.

3. The Shins – Oh, Inverted World
Floaty, melodic good times. Especially “New Slang,” everybody loves that song.

2. The White Stripes – White Blood Cells
Like many people (I assume), I came to this album after hearing the tremendous “Fell in Love with a Girl.” The good news is that the rest of the album rocks too.

1. My Morning Jacket – At Dawn
You know, I’m not sure how everyone else feels about this album, but I am all about it. It was the first My Morning Jacket album I heard, and I continue to find it one of my most played.

Top 10 Video Games of 2001

10. Mobile Suit Gundam: Journey to Jaburo
Now, by everybody’s standards, this game is terrible. I’d probably think so too if I went back and played it again. But at the time, I was totally blown away by the graphics and my first chance to take control of a mobile suit and fight in the One Year War.

9. Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies
This game was cool. An arcadey flight combat game. Good times on the PS2.

8. SSX Tricky
What I found to be the coolest feature of Tricky was the way the game manipulated the soundtrack, like how songs would switch to the chorus when you were doing crazy tricks and waht not.

7. Jak and Daxter
Crash Bandicoot is out, Jak and Daxter are in. But the game remains largely the same. Just a lot prettier.

6. Advance Wars
Now here was a cool game. I’m all about this franchise. The only title on this list not released on PS2.

5. Final Fantasy X
It took me over a year to beat this game. Granted, I quit it for most of that time, but still. Fuckin’ Seymour, being such a bitch.

4. Max Payne
It’s like The Matrix! Lots of slow motion diving and a really dark, noire story about a man who has lost everything. Good times.

3. Devil May Cry
This game is crazy! Guns and swords! Both of them! Together! In the same combos! Too bad the sequel is supposed to suck, and then the latter two games are pretty great.

2. Halo
The game that changed an industry. After Halo, first person shooters became the big genre on consoles. Multiplayer, of course, became bigger than ever. It was all about infinite grenades.

1. Grand Theft Auto III
So controversial. This game was so good I had to secretly install it on my computer, since my parents forbid buying it for the PS2. Some times you just gotta cause some havoc, and this legendary sandbox game was the place to do it in 2001.
