Game – Sonic Adventure (SEGA Dreamcast) – I am a Sonic fan, or at least I was a long time ago. Sonic Adventure was in my mind the last good Sonic game and even that is stretching it a bit. The reason I liked the game was because it did Sonic in 3D without making me sick but it also signaled the end of actually good Sonic games, a bitter sweet game to say the least.
Film – The Ref – Do you know what goes excellent with Christmas? A botched robbery featuring Denis Leary playing a sarcastic thief and Kevin Spacey and Judy Davis playing a husband and wife with issues and not the fact that Leary has taken them hostage. The dysfunctional family storyline is hysterical and is probably Leary’s best performance in a film.
Album – 8 Mile Soundtrack – While I may not be the biggest fan of rap or hip-hop I do appreciate a few artists, including Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Eminem. The soundtrack to the Eminem starring vehicle 8 Mile is a show piece for superstar rap. But it really shines when Eminem is on the mic though and he makes this soundtrack his own.
Favorite Tracks: 8 Mile, Rabbit Run and Lose Yourself
