We are now at the final eleven, the best of the best, the heads of the honchos, the kings of the castles, the movies and games that even Chuck Norris respects. This is it. This is……….. the 11 to end all 11s. Prepare yourself.
#11 Movie: Gattaca
Ah Gattaca, a little known sci-fi classic I found in the bargain bin at Big Lots. Who would of thought that it would make into the Top 11 Movies Ever on Crunchy Frog’s Epic Blog, a blog that millions (i.e., 2) of people look at every day (i.e., month). But, yes, It really is that good. Gattaca is an interesting mix of genres, it’s a cerebral sci-fi, a murder-mystery, a romantic movie, and is even a documentary in a sense. It’s sad that not many people have seen this brilliant movie. There aren’t many characters here, but the few they have are brilliant. The eccentric scientist Jerome Morrow, the main character, Vincent, who is subjected to genetic discrimination, and his love interest Irene Cassini. There are tons of suspenseful and extremely well directed scenes, including one of the best scenes in cinema history, the scene where Jerome must climb up the spiral staircase without his wheelchair. This particular scene had me on the edge of my seat, it actually reminded me of The Amazing Spider-Man: The Last Chapter (issue #33, February 33rd, 1966, for those counting). Anyway, just buy it. It’s amazing.
#11 Game: Super Scribblenauts
Fifth Cell crafted a masterpiece when they released the original Scribblenauts. I mean, a game where you could write any object down and have it appear on-screen instantly? And it actually worked?! Sure it was buggy, hard to control, had a couple dull levels, and a terrible Level Editor, but no one noticed because they were too busy making an army of sharks fight a nun wielding Excalibur. Fifth Cell could of just sat back on there solid gold chairs while drinking money coffee, but instead, they decided to release a sequel that fixed all the problems of the original, added 10,00 more objects, and allowed you to alter your objects with adjectives. Now you could have an army of rainbow-coloured zombie sharks fighting a ninja nun with a golden flaming Excalibur. Need I say more?
