Best Films of 2005
647 5.7 6.4100. 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.
757 5.4 5.599. Rumor Has It... (2005)
Aniston has it... while the rest of the notable cast phones it in, lead by the master of phoned-in performances: Mark Ruffalo.
1247 5.9 6.698. The Weather Man (2005)
Family Man, Matchstick Men, Wicker Man... now meet The Weather Man. Cage thinks he's the man.
738 7.4 7.397. Caché
1 5 796. Grodmin (2005)
A faux documentary about the making of a crappy movie... interesting concept from an inventive filmmaker, Jim Horwitz.
75 6.4 6.895. Inside Deep Throat (2005)
Warning: A doc on the 70s porn film. Not about the Watergate Scandal. I learned a few things.
684 6.8 7.294. Coach Carter (2005)
I would be scared as hell to have Jackson as my basketball coach.
1614 5.8 6.293. 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.
176 5.6 5.892. Bad News Bears (2005)
The poster is representative of how far off they strayed from the original.
3035 6.3 6.991. The Island (2005)
474 6 6.890. 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 6.589. Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)
Funnier than Waiting...
66 6.5 7.588. 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.
1002 5.5 6.287. Just Friends (2005)
Jusk Ok. Reynolds has good comedic timing but it's tough with only par writing.
282 4.9 5.586. 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 6.285. 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 5.584. 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.
1409 5.7 5.983. The Legend of Zorro (2005)
1783 4.5 4.882. 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.
3358 5.5 5.781. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
736 6.1 6.680. Derailed (2005)
Without Owens accent and Aniston's looks this film would have completely derailed. Gosh, I'm clever.
303 5.4 5.879. 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.
1714 6 6.378. 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.
1526 5.4 5.577. Aeon Flux (2005)
13 5.7 6.576. Madison (2005)
This movie once terribly to be a Disney Family sports film. It's a nice a story but the only thing that is at all unique about this film is that it's about boat racing, not sure how many other films there are about the sport.
277 6.5 6.875. 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.
6 6 7.874. After Innocence (2005)
An intriguing documentary on triumph, faith and forgiveness. It's an important subject but unfortunately the documentarians don't really do anything interesting with the material.
262 7.4 7.573. Paradise Now (2005)
184 6.7 7.172. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
568 6.9 7.371. North Country (2005)
150 7.7 7.670. Born Into Brothels: Calcutta's Red Light Kid... (2004)
A stirring documentary about a world unknown and rarely thought of by Western citizens. It's a nice reminder of what we have and what some great humans will do to provide a sense of purpose for others.
1032 7.2 7.569. Everything Is Illuminated (2005)
Only some of the scenes seem illuminated. Witty humor and strange characters make the movie enjoyable.
9 5.8 6.568. The Last Mogul (2005)
I love Hollywood history, especially when it's a story I haven't heard before. This documentary is about a very influential man behind the scenes since Hollywood's early days. Unfortunately it lacks any real drama and the interview arrangements were boring and seemed amateur many times.
468 7 7.467. Manderlay (2005)
750 5.3 666. Sahara (2005)
This one wanted to be epic, but instead it was just a pic.
67 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.
4048 7.3 7.764. 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.
397 6.4 6.863. My Summer of Love (2004)
133 7 7.562. 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.
2756 7.5 7.861. Pride and 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.
1746 7.5 860. Serenity (2005)
This extension of the short-lived but much-loved series, "Firefly", is a worthy one, with a higher budget and tighter script.
2231 7.1 7.659. 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 that didn't seem to have as much purpose as those opening credits would suggest.
704 6.7 758. Rent (2005)
Good music, bad acting, and no Stevie Wonder. One out of three ain't bad.
1482 6.6 7.157. Jarhead (2005)
931 6.5 6.656. A Lot Like Love (2005)
219 5.9 6.355. 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!
5507 6.3 6.554. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
Vince Vaughn makes this movie. Oh yeah, Pitt and Jolie are entertaining as well.
321 5.5 6.253. Two for the Money (2005)
A lot of potential in this, but it ran a little flat. Still the only good thing McConaughey has done this decade.
1095 6.5 752. Syriana (2005)
Some intense and memorable scenes in this one-sided political film
17 7.6 7.151. Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon ... (2005)
A movie I could have running in the background of my home every day.
