Best Films of 2003
539 4.8 5.2100. View from the Top (2003)
135 6.4 6.699. Dark Blue (2002)
Russell gives a decent effort, too bad the screenwriters didn't
1353 5.6 698. S.W.A.T. (2003)
After this I need S.ome W.hiskey A.nd T.ea
193 4.5 5.197. Malibu's Most Wanted (2003)
A film no one needs to see; but one you'll hate to laugh at, because you probably will, at least once.
1705 5.4 5.896. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
2 bad 2 ridiculous.
53 6.6 7.695. The Weather Underground (2002)
I only got angry at the angries; but at least I learned some new things.
1113 5.5 5.894. Duplex (2003)
Mean-spirited and frustrating all the way to the end with very little pay-off
2621 5.4 6.193. Freaky Friday (2003)
It's possibly the best version of the story, but that's not saying much. There is enough to this to make it watchable
339 7.3 7.792. The Barbarian Invasions (2003)
I did not see the appeal in this foreign flick. I tried to watch it a couple of times and could barely get through it. Kind of like "Cache"
2953 6.7 791. Underworld (2003)
1448 6.6 790. Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003)
Yes, that weird looking woman on the poster is Scarlett Johansson, and no we don't see any more skin than that. The cinematography was the only thing that saved it
78 6 6.689. The Good Thief (2002)
Good grief, it took a lot of effort to really get into this droll story full of characters you never really care about. Still, there are some well-constructed scenes and the music helped.
593 6.3 6.788. Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)
I'm forever under the Diane Lane influence
1178 5.2 5.587. Dreamcatcher (2003)
The first time I saw this, I actually really liked it, it played with your mind and surprised me a few times. The second time, I was amazed at this poor excuse for filmmaking.
2562 5.1 4.886. Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
Demi Moore looks damn good in a bikini, still.
333 5.4 5.585. Alex & Emma (2003)
Nothing bad about this romantic film; but... nothing really that good either.
170 5 5.684. Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003)
One good thing about this movie - it actually was about as mediocre as it looked. The ending song was pretty great though.
257 6.7 7.283. Narc (2002)
As they say in 'Entourage' Jason Patric is intense. He is paired up with another intense actor, Ray Liotta. These guys aren't bad but the story seems stale and the color grading is pale, making this also a drab film to watch, but at least it fits with the story being told.
256 6.4 6.282. Gerry (2002)
5 5.8 081. Windy City Heat
A really funny concept but it gets a little too mean spirited.
77 6.2 6.980. Ghosts of the Abyss (2003)
On par with Cameron's "Aliens in the Deep" It was basically a show on Discovery, and an average one at that.
521 6.8 7.279. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
Like in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" there is an Elvis/Pharaoh connection.
2447 5.1 5.778. Hulk (2003)
I think it was okay. Not your typical comic book movie, and I think that's the main reason it didn't get a great reception. Ang Lee is a damn fine director, he just apparently shouldn't be making comic book movies.
506 6.9 7.477. Dirty Pretty Things (2002)
Toutou wasn't nearly as dirty or pretty as I had hoped in this.
133 7.4 876. Winged Migration (2001)
1256 6.5 6.775. Brother Bear (2003)
Nice try, Disney, nice try. You should probably just rely on Pixar and your sports movies. Enough of these, please.
366 4.8 5.574. National Security (2003)
Zahn and Lawrence probably won't be doing any more films together.
436 7 7.673. Secondhand Lions (2003)
I'm not really sure what this film was trying to be. The acting was good and story was good; that's as much as I can put down without going into a series of questions. And I don't think that was the director's intent.
1077 6.4 6.972. Peter Pan (2003)
The trailer made it look surreal and possibly... special? Boy did they fool us.
Still, not a bad film though.
2654 6.3 7.171. Phone Booth (2002)
I think Willis needs to get Whitaker's agent, because clearly this guy can't act yet he gets gigs.
1313 5.8 6.270. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
1513 4.7 4.669. Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003)
Ok, now the confidence is getting out of hand.
665 6.1 6.768. The Rundown (2003)
Mindless fun action-kind-of-comedy.
357 6.7 6.967. Radio (2003)
This film was trying too hard and didn't have resounding success. However, I still watched the entire thing and enjoyed what it was about. Gooding Jr does a fine job; but the supporting cast could have been a little more supportive.
57 6.2 766. Poolhall Junkies (2002)
The highlight of this movie, of course, is Walken. If I didn't find pool and billiards so interesting I probably wouldn't have cared much for this movie.
786 7.8 7.865. The Triplets of Belleville (2003)
I'm not sure where the full entertainment I was expecting went...
44 7 7.264. Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003)
Is she guilty or not? Not sure?
Is she crazy, absolutely!
1603 6.1 6.763. Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
I felt wrong watching this, Knightley is tantalizing, even as a jock.
1299 6.7 7.362. Matchstick Men (2003)
Rockwell and Lohman do a good job of making Cage not look bad.
2347 5.8 6.361. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
I usually put one or two romantic comedies on here and this one certainly deserves a spot. Kate Hudson is adorable and and Matty McC is at least tolerable. Could have used a little more Goldberg though, that guy IS gold.
476 6.3 6.860. Swimming Pool (2003)
Not a whole lot happens in this film; but at least the title accurate.
50 6.2 759. The Dancer Upstairs (2002)
John Malcovich actually directs this impressive first feature for an actor/now director. While he isn't starring in it, the very talented Bardem is, and he is the highlight of this strange detective/revolution story.
861 5.7 6.158. Wrong Turn (2003)
109 7.1 7.757. Spellbound (2002)
Just a little more interesting than the actual National Spelling Bee.
876 6.3 6.656. Tears of the Sun (2003)
Cool title, not-as-cool film. Willis needs a new agent. Monica Bellucci is gorgeous but her some of her important assets are too constrained in this film
100 6.2 6.455. The Company (2003)
Quite a different film for Altman. It was nicely done though.
318 6.2 6.554. Out of Time (2003)
Denzel is the lead in a Spanish-Prisoner style action movie that would be half as good if he were not the star.
2638 5.7 6.453. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)
Easily the least-likable of the trilogy. It's hard to top T2. The new baddie was cool and hot in that outfit. The kids brought it down a little and some of action seemed a little cheap.
1755 6.2 6.952. Thirteen (2003)
306 7.3 7.851. In America (2002)
Hell's Kitchen never looked so good, I mean bad. I don't know, but this film of an Irish immigrant family tugs at the heart and soul with such ease. Hounsou is someone to look for, too.
