I present to you for the 7th year in a row the 2007 Trenchie Awards.
Best Movie: I really didn’t make it to the theater this year so I’m going by the DVD’s I rented this year that were actually 2006 movies. And the winner is Children of Men. That movie had me on the edge of my um…couch through the entire movie.
Worst Movie: Following the 2006 DVD principle the loser is Superman Returns. Kevin Spacey was great as Lex Luthor. Brandon Roushe was ok as Superman. Kate Bosworth sucked as Lois Lane. Not to mention there wasn’t enough actual Superman. Next time less talking and more of Superman smashing stuff.
Best Album: This was a phenomenal year for albums. We had The Dio Years by Black Sabbath, Dead Again by Type O Negative, and United Abominations by Megadeth. However, the album that got the most play time in My Zen was Framing Armageddon by Iced Earth. It’s a shame that IE let Ripper Owens go. No offense to Matt Barlow but Ripper rules.
Worst Album: Black Rain by Ozzy. No question. It’s like your grandfather trying to act cool.
Best TV Show: Burn Notice. Again this was the only show that I made sure I was in front of the TV when it was on. Heroes lost out because of their crappy second season. But it wasn’t the worst show. That distinction goes to…
Worst TV Show: 24. Yeah, you heard me. I brought its jersey back from retirement so I could burn it. I stopped watching once they found the nukes because I could not have cared less about Jack getting Audrey back.
Best Wrestling Moment: A rather lackluster year but I have to give it to the return of Y2J. I was hoping he would go to TNA but Jericho on WWE is better than no Jericho at all.
Worst Wrestling Moment: Chris Benoit.
Best Videogame: I only bought games for the DS this year. I’m staying away from the next-gen consoles until the prices go way down. And it’s a tie between Puzzle Quest and Front Mission. Both kept me within arm’s length to my DS all year.
Worst Videogame: Final Fantasy XII. Too long and too boring.
Dumbass of 2007: Ron Paul supporters. Y’all are a whole bag of crazy.
Most Inane Political Agenda of 2007: All those like the Rev. Al Sharpton who are trying to get the kidnapping and torture of Megan Williams changed to a hate crime. Ms. Williams was dating one of her captors. Not only that but the scumbags that did that to her will get more time on the kidnapping charge then they would on a hate crime charge.
Biggest Jackass Celebrity of 2006: Natalie Maines. She jumped on the West Memphis 3 bandwagon to support 3 convicted killers after watching the heavily biased Paradise Lost ‘documentaries’.
Have a safe and happy Amateur’s Night and hopefully will do this again next year.
