Nelefa.org is officially an adult! The domain was originally registered on this day in 1997 – 16 years ago. How time flies when you’re talking utter pish.
So – as a mini-celebration, I’m going to list my favourite film of each year nelefa.org has been alive.
- 1997 – Contact
- 1998 – Saving Private Ryan
- 1999 – The Matrix
- 2000 – O Brother, Where Art Thou?
- 2001 – Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring
- 2002 – Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers
- 2003 – Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King
- 2004 – Shaun of the Dead
- 2005 – Serenity (tough year – Batman Begins, Sin City, Revenge of the Sith)
- 2006 – 300 (close call against Pan’s Labyrinth)
- 2007 – There Will Be Blood (another close call – No Country for Old Men)
- 2008 – Gran Torino (amazing year! The Dark Knight, Taken, Iron Man, Hancock)
- 2009 – Star Trek (honourable mentions to Zombieland, Watchmen, District 9, Moon)
- 2010 – Kick Ass (honourable mentions to Scott Pilgrim, True Grit, 13 Assassins, and one other which wins overall)
- 2011 – Rubber (Sorry – I loved it to death. Honourable mention to Thor)
- 2012 (so far) – Avengers Assemble (Honourable mention to Iron Sky)
But there has to be an overall ‘favourite movie of the last 16 years’, right? And there is. Really really tough choice, given we’ve had some amazing movies in the last few years, but my overall choice is:
- 2010 – The Book of Eli
There we have it. Happy Birthday, Nelefa.org. This list of movies has nothing whatsoever to do with the nelefa.org site – in fact a list of games would be more appropriate. But that’s just what they’d be expecting 🙂
