98. The Weather Man (2005)

About 8 songs too much.

People who added this item 951  Average listal rating (587 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.4 
95. The Interpreter (2005)
Too easy to interpret as a less-than-solid outing for Kidman and director Pollack

Stehako's rating:

94. Caché
This movie should have stayed hidden.

People who added this item 633  Average listal rating (368 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.9 
93. Must Love Dogs (2005)
Must Love Cusack and Lane to even slightly enjoy this film. I love Lane, so I half-slightly enjoyed it.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 555  Average listal rating (268 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 5.7 
92. Last Days (2005)

91. Racing Stripes (2005)
Whether you're black or white or black and white it's for the kids and... only for the kids.

89. The Miracle Match (2005)
Maybe to them; but I found it uninteresting.

88. Constantine (2005)
Constantly loathe Keanu's acting ability.

People who added this item 627  Average listal rating (346 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
87. The Producers (2005)
Why do producers still think people like Broderick? Less than ok and the funny parts take up about 6 minutes of the film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1241  Average listal rating (752 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
86. Just Like Heaven (2005)
Just like too many movies.

85. Grodmin (2005)
A faux documentary about the making of a crappy movie... interesting concept from an inventive filmmaker, Jim Horwitz.

People who added this item 73  Average listal rating (42 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
83. Inside Deep Throat (2005)
Warning: A doc on the 70s porn film. Not about the Watergate Scandal. I learned a few things.

81. Flightplan (2005)
It was not my plan to see this movie. Foster is mighty talented; but those talents were a bit wasted in this generic film.

People who added this item 170  Average listal rating (112 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.8 
80. Bad News Bears (2005)
The poster is representative of how far off they strayed from the original.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2935  Average listal rating (1966 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.9 
79. The Island (2005)
About one tenth as interesting as the island on "Lost"
Bay's films are shot well but he seems to make decent actors look completely lost.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 458  Average listal rating (281 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.8 
78. Waiting... (2005)
...Not as funny as Silverman, and too many gross jokes/things that didn't add any humor to the film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 57  Average listal rating (38 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 6.5 
77. Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)
Funnier than Waiting...

People who added this item 967  Average listal rating (584 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 6.3 
76. Just Friends (2005)
Jusk Ok. Reynolds has good comedic timing but it's tough with only par writing.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 277  Average listal rating (180 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating 5.5 
75. Kicking & Screaming (2005)
Without Ditka and the coffee house scenes, this movie wouldn't be in the top 75, oh wait it still isn't
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 26  Average listal rating (21 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating 5.5 
74. Blackball (2003)
I don't know what Cromwell is doing in such a low brow film; but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1355  Average listal rating (816 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.9 
73. The Legend of Zorro (2005)
They kind of missed "the mark" on this one; but at least I watched the whole thing...

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1729  Average listal rating (1084 ratings) 4.5  IMDB Rating 4.8 
72. Bewitched (2005)
Not as horrible as everyone is making it out to be. Kidman is sexy and Ferrell is always funny. However the writing/story was shit.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1469  Average listal rating (979 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
71. Aeon Flux (2005)
Charlize makes this comic come to life as sexy as anyone would want it.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 3215  Average listal rating (2148 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 5.7 
70. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 698  Average listal rating (431 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
69. Derailed (2005)
Without Owens accent and Aniston's looks this film would have completely derailed. Gosh, I'm clever.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 294  Average listal rating (191 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.8 
68. The Ringer (2005)
This movie would have been great with the right actor. I appreciate the risk with picking Knoxville, since he's wild and a new guy on the scene, but he failed.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1646  Average listal rating (991 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
67. Robots (2005)
Oh man. I don't know what happened here. Clearly they didn't spend much time on writing and thought the cool animation and Robin Williams' improv would make up for it.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 262  Average listal rating (128 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
66. The Ballad of Jack and Rose (2005)
A strange choice for Day-Lewis, meaning it wasn't a very good one. The dialogue was forced and the story didn't need to be told. I guess it's a ballad because music was played at each interesting moment; but it wasn't a true ballad of human life. In the end, Day-Lewis still delivers, bringing it slightly above average.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 245  Average listal rating (137 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
65. Paradise Now (2005)
Deceiving title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 539  Average listal rating (283 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
64. North Country (2005)
Charlize, the beauty, playing another non-beauty (After playing Aileen in 'Monster').

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 975  Average listal rating (497 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.5 
63. Everything Is Illuminated (2005)
Only some of the scenes seem illuminated. Witty humor and strange characters make the movie enjoyable.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 180  Average listal rating (107 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
62. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 64  Average listal rating (32 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.8 
61. Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price (2005)
Clearly one-sided... but if you don't like Wal-Mart this doc will make you hate it.
More importantly, if you like Wal-Mart then please watch this so you stop shopping there.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 3881  Average listal rating (2404 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.7 
60. Brokeback Mountain (2005)
Yeah, they're gay, we get it. Hathaway and Williams get topless in a gay film... maybe that's what saved it? Also pretty damn good cinematography.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 128  Average listal rating (79 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.5 
59. The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005)
Definitely not the best movie ever played, but Shia Lebeouf is quite likable. This is Disney at its most basic.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2606  Average listal rating (1534 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
58. Pride & Prejudice (2005)
A chick flick, maybe; but check out all the beautiful young women in this and you'll see why a guy can enjoy it too.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 713  Average listal rating (492 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating
57. Sahara (2005)
This one wanted to be epic, but instead it was just a pic.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 677  Average listal rating (368 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
56. Rent (2005)
Good music, bad acting, and no Stevie Wonder. One out of three ain't bad.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1433  Average listal rating (909 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.1 
55. Jarhead (2005)
An oft-gimmicky but beautifully-filmed Desert Storm picture

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1065  Average listal rating (622 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
54. Syriana (2005)
Some intense and memorable scenes in this one-sided political film
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2159  Average listal rating (1443 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
53. Lord of War (2005)
This starts off with a great credit sequence but then Cage talks way too much. But in the end it was a good film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 904  Average listal rating (542 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.6 
52. A Lot Like Love (2005)
A fun romance that improves my image of both Kutcher and Peet. I don't understand why more people didn't go see it.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1046  Average listal rating (603 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
51. The New World (2005)
A liked the animated version more - more singing and far less running time. But this at least told the whole story and it was gorgeously shot.
Stehako's rating:


 

In the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

The top ten is one of the most solid of the decade; but overall, not a very good year for films. I only watched 104. The four extra were so unlikable I couldn't possibly put them on this list.

I agree, this was not a great year, but good list with what was offered. Geisha should be higher, but not bad sir.

I agree with your description of Narnia. I really wanted to like it, but after seeing the epic trilogy that was Lord of the Rings, it was hard to see those kids as believable.
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Jun 9 19:21
I agree with most of the things you have here. Especially the note on Star Wars and Harry Potter. Good list!
