Best Films of 2005
1231 5.9 6.7100. The Weather Man (2005)
Family Man, Matchstick Men, Wicker Man... now meet The Weather Man. Cage thinks he's the man.
957 6 6.499. The Interpreter (2005)
711 7.3 7.398. Caché
This movie should have stayed hidden.
642 5.6 5.997. Must Love Dogs (2005)
Must Love Cusack and Lane to even slightly enjoy this film. I love Lane, so I half-slightly enjoyed it.
256 4.7 5.296. Racing Stripes (2005)
Whether you're black or white or black and white it's for the kids... but only for the kids.
557 5.8 5.795. Last Days (2005)
A movie not for anyone thinking about their last days.
772 5.4 6.294. Sky High (2005)
Pretty good if you watch it sky high
633 5.7 6.493. 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.
1247 6.4 6.892. Just Like Heaven (2005)
Just like too many movies.
1 5 791. Grodmin (2005)
A faux documentary about the making of a crappy movie... interesting concept from an inventive filmmaker, Jim Horwitz.
529 5.8 6.390. Assault on Precinct 13 (2005)
Assault on my intelligence.
72 6.4 6.889. Inside Deep Throat (2005)
Warning: A doc on the 70s porn film. Not about the Watergate Scandal. I learned a few things.
664 6.8 7.288. Coach Carter (2005)
I would be scared as hell to have Jackson as my basketball coach.
1578 5.8 6.287. 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.
171 5.6 5.886. Bad News Bears (2005)
The poster is representative of how far off they strayed from the original.
2970 6.3 6.985. The Island (2005)
464 6 6.884. Waiting... (2005)
...Not as funny as Silverman, and too many gross jokes/things that didn't add any humor to the film.
57 6.9 6.583. Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)
Funnier than Waiting...
62 6.6 7.582. Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles (2005)
Don't watch this movie if you're driving alone for thousands of miles... you will fall asleep.
978 5.5 6.381. Just Friends (2005)
Jusk Ok. Reynolds has good comedic timing but it's tough with only par writing.
278 4.9 5.580. 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
13 6.8 6.379. The Outsider (2005)
A documentary about a supposed outsider who seems to have tons of connections to real players of the industry. The thing that makes him an outsider is that, perhaps, he has little talent. Somehow these people who have talent admire him yet.
27 5.4 5.578. 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.
1376 5.6 5.977. The Legend of Zorro (2005)
1741 4.5 4.876. 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.
3264 5.5 5.775. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
715 6.1 6.674. Derailed (2005)
Without Owens accent and Aniston's looks this film would have completely derailed. Gosh, I'm clever.
294 5.4 5.873. 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.
1668 6 6.372. 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.
1492 5.4 5.571. Aeon Flux (2005)
271 6.5 6.870. 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.
250 7.4 7.569. Paradise Now (2005)
181 6.7 7.168. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
548 6.9 7.367. North Country (2005)
999 7.3 7.566. Everything Is Illuminated (2005)
Only some of the scenes seem illuminated. Witty humor and strange characters make the movie enjoyable.
65 6.1 6.865. 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.
457 7.1 7.464. Manderlay (2005)
Mandatory viewing for Von Trier fans.
3940 7.3 7.763. 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.
381 6.4 6.862. My Summer of Love (2004)
132 7 7.561. 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.
729 5.3 660. Sahara (2005)
This one wanted to be epic, but instead it was just a pic.
2656 7.5 7.859. 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.
686 6.8 7.158. Rent (2005)
Good music, bad acting, and no Stevie Wonder. One out of three ain't bad.
1453 6.6 7.157. Jarhead (2005)
1076 6.5 756. Syriana (2005)
Some intense and memorable scenes in this one-sided political film
2177 7.1 7.655. 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.
907 6.5 6.654. A Lot Like Love (2005)
215 6 6.353. The Ice Harvest (2005)
Billy Bob and Cusack make an interesting team, the story was a little tough to get into. But a good add to the adult Christmas movie list!
1061 6.5 6.752. 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. Certainly Malick's weakest effort, among his masterpieces.
5398 6.3 6.451. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
Vince Vaughn makes this movie. Oh yeah, Pitt and Jolie are entertaining as well.
