Now this is a bit late for the post, but not too late I guess, its still 8th January. So here I’ll try to sum up what all made 2007 a year to remember. To start with, got a lot of new things, a new phone, a new PC, Dish TV, Internet, lots of clothes and a new job. Had some parties to remember, went on a vacation after a long time to Vaishno Devi, saw a LOT of movies, and played a LOT of games and listened to a LOT of music. Its been a hectic time throughout, job life does make your life tough on you, you don’t have much time for things sometimes. So you have to balance things out and try to do as much as you can. Now don’t expect New Year Resolutions from me, I don’t like to make a promise to myself which I’ll have to keep up for a year. So now I’ll put up stuff in categories:
Movies: I saw a lot of movies like I said. But here are my favorites ones (Not necessarily in the order of liking)
Transformers: This one has to come up first in my memory, it was a great movie and I still remember, that just as the credits starting rolling, I asked to myself…what the hell was this? I was so immersed, the story, the effects, everything. It made me an instant fan of the Transformers franchisee. So much so that it even influenced me somewhat in my cellphone purchase decision. I bought the Transformers Limited Edition phone.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End: It was the year of trilogies and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End was amongst the one which I was most looking forward to. The final installment in the series was again where it ended in the second film. As I mentioned in my review of the movie it was a great mix of action, drama, comedy, romance. I’ll really miss Jack Sparrow.
Spider-Man 3: Another movie from the trilogies, Spider-Man was awesome, really great effects and a good storyline. What I didn’t like was the length of the role for Venom. He is supposed to be a big enemy of Spider-Man but doesn’t quite get the time on screen as a Spider-Man fan would expect.
And then saw a lot of animated movies, Ratatouille, Flushed Away.
And then there were some laugh riots like Partner, Apna Sapna Money Money, Heyy Baby, Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Some pretty good movies with a good story like Johnny Gaddaar, Om Shanti Om.
Music wise I heard a lot of new artists, Muse, Art Brut, Radiohead, Massive Attack, Foo Fighters, and a lot more. Many of which were recommendations from my friend Vivek.
It was a great year in gaming as well. Played a lot of games, my favorite of all FIFA 07. Awesome game it is, also played Far Cry, Crysis demo, Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, FIFA 08, Need for Speed: ProStreet.
I went to Vaishno Devi for the first time, it was a memorable experience, had a great time there. Hope to have more such visits to chill out. I also went to the Great Indian Rock Show, GIR in short, my first visit to a music event, and I enjoyed every part of it.
Now how can I miss sports, its a BIG part of my life. Manchester United and Ferrari both were crowned champions. Kimi Raikkonen also won the driver’s title finally, a BIG relief. Saw a lot of memorable events during the season.
So in short it was a great year. Lot of things to remember. Looking forward to 2008 in hope and excitement that it will be even a better year in a lot of areas.
