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:

99. Caché
This movie should have stayed "hidden".
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 646  Average listal rating (374 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.9 
98. 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 259  Average listal rating (157 ratings) 4.6  IMDB Rating 5.2 
97. 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 (270 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 5.7 
96. Last Days (2005)
A movie not for anyone thinking about their last days.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 783  Average listal rating (489 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 6.2 
95. Sky High (2005)
Pretty good if you watch it sky high
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 640  Average listal rating (359 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
94. 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 1263  Average listal rating (769 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.7 
93. Just Like Heaven (2005)
Just like too many movies.
Stehako's rating:

92. 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 537  Average listal rating (382 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.3 
91. 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 
90. 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 671  Average listal rating (410 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
89. Coach Carter (2005)
I would be scared as hell to have Jackson as my basketball coach.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1588  Average listal rating (1018 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.2 
88. 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 172  Average listal rating (112 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.8 
87. 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 2989  Average listal rating (2001 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.9 
86. 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 467  Average listal rating (290 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.8 
85. 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 
84. 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 
83. 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 992  Average listal rating (604 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 6.3 
82. 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 280  Average listal rating (183 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating 5.5 
81. 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 
80. 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 
79. 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 1387  Average listal rating (835 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 5.9 
78. 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 1755  Average listal rating (1097 ratings) 4.5  IMDB Rating 4.8 
77. 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 3294  Average listal rating (2194 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 5.7 
76. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 722  Average listal rating (443 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
75. 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 299  Average listal rating (196 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.8 
74. 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 1684  Average listal rating (1015 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
73. 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 1502  Average listal rating (996 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
72. 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 
71. 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 254  Average listal rating (148 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
70. Paradise Now (2005)
Deceiving title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 183  Average listal rating (111 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
69. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 558  Average listal rating (290 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
68. North Country (2005)
Charlize, the beauty, playing another non-beauty (After playing Aileen in 'Monster').

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 8  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.5 
67. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1006  Average listal rating (512 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 3973  Average listal rating (2455 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 388  Average listal rating (222 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 735  Average listal rating (506 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 2688  Average listal rating (1583 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 691  Average listal rating (377 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 1465  Average listal rating (930 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 1081  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 2194  Average listal rating (1471 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 914  Average listal rating (546 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 216  Average listal rating (131 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 1069  Average listal rating (622 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 5438  Average listal rating (3656 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, 4 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!
