Though this community seems geared more towards a movie-music audience, I have been reading a lot of critical books lately, and so I've not had much to review. I feel bad since I haven't contributed in awhile, so I'm going to post the links to a few reviews I've posted in other journals.
  • Virtually Normal, Andrew Sullivan: This is a book that attempts to explain the best way for politics to deal with the problem of the homosexual.
  • Covering, Kenji Yoshino: This, too, addresses the issue of civil rights, though not specifically gay rights. In fact, anyone who is a person may find this book interesting, not just those gay people out there.
  • The Wild Iris, Louise Glück: This is one of the best books of poetry I've read. It's inspiring, it's motivational, and it still manages to be super pessimistic and rather dark. Love it.

That's it for now. I'll try to watch a movie in the near future and write about it. I watched Little Miss Sunshine last night, but I think I may have written a review of it already, and even if I didn't, I know enough people have already said "zOMG THIS IS TEH BEST MOVIE EVERZZZZZ!" that you don't need me to repeat it.

Top Five Disappointments of 2006 {*Spoiler Alerts*}

I would first like to give a shoutout to Entertainment Weekly, and the list of theirs I got the idea for this from. I even included two of their picks. It also helps since I haven’t really watched enough movies or listened to enough music to put together best or worst lists for those subjects. And as a way to entice you discerning Top Five Reviews reader and to show I actually did some work, I also reviewed my Top Five picks as well.
