100. The Weather Man (2005)

#100


Family Man, Matchstick Men, Wicker Man... now meet The Weather Man. Cage thinks he's the man.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 963  Average listal rating (596 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.4 
99. The Interpreter (2005)
Too easy to interpret as a less-than-solid outing for Kidman and director Pollack

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 719  Average listal rating (441 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.3 
98. Caché
This movie should have stayed hidden.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 645  Average listal rating (374 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.9 
97. 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 260  Average listal rating (158 ratings) 4.7  IMDB Rating 5.2 
96. Racing Stripes (2005)
Whether you're black or white or black and white it's for the kids... but only for the kids.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 558  Average listal rating (269 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 5.7 
95. Last Days (2005)
A movie not for anyone thinking about their last days.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 778  Average listal rating (490 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 6.2 
94. Sky High (2005)
Pretty good if you watch it sky high
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 638  Average listal rating (356 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
93. 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 1255  Average listal rating (762 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.7 
92. Just Like Heaven (2005)
Just like too many movies.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1  Average listal rating (1 ratings) 5  IMDB Rating
91. Grodmin (2005)
A faux documentary about the making of a crappy movie... interesting concept from an inventive filmmaker, Jim Horwitz.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 533  Average listal rating (379 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.3 
90. Assault on Precinct 13 (2005)
Assault on my intelligence.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 73  Average listal rating (42 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
89. Inside Deep Throat (2005)
Warning: A doc on the 70s porn film. Not about the Watergate Scandal. I learned a few things.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 669  Average listal rating (409 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
88. Coach Carter (2005)
I would be scared as hell to have Jackson as my basketball coach.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1585  Average listal rating (1015 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.2 
87. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 171  Average listal rating (113 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.8 
86. 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 2978  Average listal rating (1995 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.9 
85. 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 465  Average listal rating (287 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.8 
84. 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 58  Average listal rating (39 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 6.5 
83. Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)
Funnier than Waiting...
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 62  Average listal rating (29 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.5 
82. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 984  Average listal rating (597 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 6.3 
81. 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 278  Average listal rating (181 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating 5.5 
80. 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 13  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 6.3 
79. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 27  Average listal rating (22 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
78. 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 1386  Average listal rating (833 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 5.9 
77. 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 1746  Average listal rating (1090 ratings) 4.5  IMDB Rating 4.8 
76. 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 3279  Average listal rating (2184 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 5.7 
75. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 716  Average listal rating (436 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
74. 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 295  Average listal rating (192 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.8 
73. 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 1678  Average listal rating (1011 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
72. 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 1498  Average listal rating (994 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. I'm not really sure why it got panned. I watched the 90s animated show and, besides the color palate this movie holds pretty true to it.
It's visual eye candy with less substance.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 271  Average listal rating (131 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
70. 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 251  Average listal rating (146 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
69. Paradise Now (2005)
Deceiving title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 182  Average listal rating (111 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
68. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 553  Average listal rating (288 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
67. North Country (2005)
Charlize, the beauty, playing another non-beauty (After playing Aileen in 'Monster').

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1004  Average listal rating (510 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.5 
66. 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 66  Average listal rating (34 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.8 
65. 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 459  Average listal rating (212 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.4 
64. Manderlay (2005)
Mandatory viewing for Von Trier fans.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 3955  Average listal rating (2445 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.7 
63. 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 385  Average listal rating (221 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
62. My Summer of Love (2004)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 134  Average listal rating (84 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.5 
61. 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 734  Average listal rating (505 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating
60. Sahara (2005)
This one wanted to be epic, but instead it was just a pic.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2675  Average listal rating (1579 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
59. 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 690  Average listal rating (375 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
58. 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 1457  Average listal rating (923 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.1 
57. Jarhead (2005)
An oft-gimmicky but beautifully-filmed Desert Storm picture

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1080  Average listal rating (631 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
56. Syriana (2005)
Some intense and memorable scenes in this one-sided political film
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2183  Average listal rating (1464 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
55. 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 912  Average listal rating (544 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.6 
54. 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 215  Average listal rating (130 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
53. 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!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1065  Average listal rating (618 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
52. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 5415  Average listal rating (3644 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.5 
51. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
Vince Vaughn makes this movie. Oh yeah, Pitt and Jolie are entertaining as well.
Stehako's rating:


 

The top ten is one of the most solid of the decade; but overall, not a very good year for films. I have only watched 102 so far.

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: 4 years, 3 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!
