100. Just Like Heaven (2005)

#100


Just like too many movies.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 647  Average listal rating (363 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
99. 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 757  Average listal rating (433 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
98. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1247  Average listal rating (721 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.6 
97. The Weather Man (2005)
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 738  Average listal rating (459 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.3 
96. Caché
This movie should have stayed "hidden".


Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1  Average listal rating (1 ratings) 5  IMDB Rating
95. 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 75  Average listal rating (43 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
94. 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 684  Average listal rating (420 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
93. Coach Carter (2005)
I would be scared as hell to have Jackson as my basketball coach.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1614  Average listal rating (1039 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.2 
92. 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 176  Average listal rating (116 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 5.8 
91. 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 3035  Average listal rating (2040 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.9 
90. 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 474  Average listal rating (297 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.8 
89. 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 (40 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 6.5 
88. Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)
Funnier than Waiting...
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 66  Average listal rating (31 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.5 
87. 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 1002  Average listal rating (614 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 6.2 
86. 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 282  Average listal rating (181 ratings) 4.9  IMDB Rating 5.5 
85. 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 6.2 
84. 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 
83. 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 1409  Average listal rating (847 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 5.9 
82. 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 1783  Average listal rating (1105 ratings) 4.5  IMDB Rating 4.8 
81. 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 3358  Average listal rating (2235 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 5.7 
80. Fantastic Four (2005)
"Decent Four" would be a more accurate title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 736  Average listal rating (454 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
79. 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 303  Average listal rating (200 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.8 
78. 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 1714  Average listal rating (1030 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
77. 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 1526  Average listal rating (1017 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
76. 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 13  Average listal rating (7 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.5 
75. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 277  Average listal rating (134 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
74. 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 6  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 7.9 
73. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 262  Average listal rating (153 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
72. Paradise Now (2005)
Deceiving title.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 184  Average listal rating (114 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
71. Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005)
Dame Dench at her best.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 568  Average listal rating (301 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
70. North Country (2005)
Charlize, the beauty, playing another non-beauty (After playing Aileen in 'Monster').

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 9  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.5 
69. 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 1032  Average listal rating (533 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.5 
68. 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 67  Average listal rating (36 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.8 
67. 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 468  Average listal rating (219 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.4 
66. Manderlay (2005)
Mandatory viewing for Von Trier fans.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 4048  Average listal rating (2523 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.7 
65. 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 397  Average listal rating (229 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
64. My Summer of Love (2004)
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 133  Average listal rating (85 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.5 
63. 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 750  Average listal rating (523 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating
62. Sahara (2005)
This one wanted to be epic, but instead it was just a pic.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2756  Average listal rating (1648 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
61. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1746  Average listal rating (1134 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
60. Serenity (2005)
This extension of the short-lived but much-loved series, "Firefly", is a worthy one, with a higher budget and tighter script.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 704  Average listal rating (379 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
59. 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 1482  Average listal rating (952 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.1 
58. Jarhead (2005)
An oft-gimmicky but beautifully-filmed Desert Storm picture

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1095  Average listal rating (649 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
57. Syriana (2005)
Some intense and memorable scenes in this one-sided political film
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2231  Average listal rating (1501 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
56. 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 931  Average listal rating (556 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.6 
55. 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 219  Average listal rating (135 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.3 
54. 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 1088  Average listal rating (641 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
53. 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 5507  Average listal rating (3699 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.5 
52. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
Vince Vaughn makes this movie. Oh yeah, Pitt and Jolie are entertaining as well.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 321  Average listal rating (218 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 6.2 
51. 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.

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: 5 years, 1 month 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!
