So basically here is my best of for this past year.
2015 Movie Of The Year: Jurassic World.
Now a lot of people would’ve thought I’d go Avengers or The Martian (that comes later) or even the new Star Wars movie. My thing is though, who’d of guessed that Jurassic World would actually be good. The last Jurassic Park movie wasn’t all that good so going in this is worrying. However the whole movie basically playing up the fact that the Park is up and running successfully both awe inspiring and frightening.
2015 Show of The Year: Limitless
Here’s another in the no way that should’ve worked file. In no way should a show based of an okay movie work. Yet it does. Takes the standard case of the week format sticks with that yes but it is at least fun and even connects back to the movie it’s inspired from.
2015 Song of The Year: Nathaniel Ratlieff and the Night Sweats – S.O.B
This is such a great song. It’s catchy and bubbly which coming from it’s content is also just so wrong. The tracks got that nice hymn like sound to it and you can’t really help but not clap along with it. If you don’t mind cursing or don’t like it I’d turn it down a touch.
2015 Album of The Year: The White Buffalo – Love and The Death of Damnation
It was the one I was waiting for all year. If you like what we do for Outlaws at 8 this is the kind of album you want. It’s got tracks on it that are honestly more country than most country at the moment. It’s also got some fun rocky sounds on it was well.
2015 Book Of The Year: The Martian.
So for the entire year I’ve been tracking the amount of books I’ve read. I’ll actually post that later but the one book the stood out for me was The Martian. Basically it’s the story of how NASA has begun sending teams to Mars to do onsite research much like the space station right now. The story though is that after a storm hits one astronaut is left for dead as they leave Mars and it follows his struggle to stay alive on Mars. Think Castaway in space. The book itself is a couple of years old but it just got a movie adaption this year which was really good. I can’t help but recommend both right now. Really how many movies can have Neil deGrasse Tyson do promotional work for it.
2015 Concert of the Year: Shooter Jennings Casino Regina
This was a great show this past Thanksgiving at the Casino. It was just a lot of fun. One of the biggest things working against famous musicians children also going into music is just how much the kid leans on their parents music. Shooter doesn’t he did one song of his dads. Played it first actually. Got it out of the way and focused on his music. Which is really good.
