Best Films of 2007
336 7.2 8.3100. Zeitgeist (2007)
It's far less showy than, say, a Michael Moore conspiracy doc. This is a fact I like, along with the movie taking us back to the root of all our issues.
However, some of the facts I cross checked weren't entirely accurate leading me to believe this is still manipulative.
Another however, it's difficult to argue against so much footage and actual facts supporting the corrupt world we live in.
And I'm all for the ending theme of "Love over Power".
45 6 6.399. I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With (2006)
Garland is pretty funny in this unique indie film about finding someone to love.
428 6.5 6.898. Rendition (2007)
An average modern war film with underwhelming performances by a great cast.
127 6.8 7.397. The 11th Hour (2007)
Much better than "An Inconvenient Truth" in the fact that it doesn't insult your intelligence and it inspires the audience to do better for Earth, not just piss us off.
202 6.3 6.996. Eagle vs Shark (2007)
A very low budget and charming New Zealand film with Jemaine Clement, from "Flight of the Conchords"
1637 6.4 6.995. Disturbia (2007)
673 7.1 7.694. The Kite Runner (2007)
A well-made but too-depressing film.
1864 6.8 793. P.S. I Love You (2007)
Post Script; good to watch with your lady.
289 6.2 6.592. The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (2007)
A sweet little Scottish family film that doesn't wow you at any point; but makes you care for a huge sea creature nonetheless.
893 6.8 7.491. Death at a Funeral (2007)
A slap-stick British movie with a mediocre cast of characters.
494 7.6 7.690. Lust, Caution (2007)
A beautiful film with an average love story
1096 5.6 6.289. Rush Hour 3 (2007)
Least best of the three. Still has some funny lines and good action.
1163 6.7 7.288. Shooter (2007)
Whalberg turns in his usual meager performance but Kate Mara makes up for it and the film actually delivers a few surprises and maintained my interest.
256 5.9 687. Margot at the Wedding (2007)
Baumbach writing mixed with his usual directing of unusual performances.
55 6.5 7.286. My Kid Could Paint That (2007)
A comical story about what most of us think when we're in modern art galleries. Because they started filming early on in the family's career, it made it interesting not knowing where they were going with the doc.
552 6.5 7.185. The Kingdom (2007)
Decent modern war story; but too generic to really hold my interest enough to see it ever again.
55 6.3 6.784. The TV Set (2006)
718 6.7 6.983. Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Surprisingly good. A few twists and turns and average CG animation.
733 6.5 782. Black Snake Moan (2006)
A strange film that made me feel dirty; but still good quality and Jackson does great in this music-centered role.
588 7.2 7.581. Freedom Writers (2007)
Nothing too wildly original in this film that found Swank stuck in a poorly written script; but still comes out looking good.
474 6.6 6.980. 2 Days in Paris (2007)
A lot of interesting dialogue with two actors I really like, along with creative storytelling. However I think it could have worked better as a 20 minute short, not an entire movie
148 6 6.279. Color Me Kubrick (2005)
Malkovich has a blast with this role but I kind of lost interest half way through after seeing him pull the same stuff over and over.
412 7.3 7.578. The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006)
972 6.6 6.977. Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)
Even slower paced than first. Owen adds some interesting scenes, and of course the story is good and Cate will always be amazing.
1680 6.1 6.576. National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)
Nick Cage finds things and then more things and throws in some smart ass humor and then finds more things until he finds what he really wants.
1396 5.6 6.175. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007)
Middle of the pack for Sandler and his gang. Funny cameos and it actually does a good job of NOT making fun of gays.
339 6.9 7.174. Breach (2007)
Cool story, interesting pace, and a bit of a thinker.
1588 6.9 7.473. The Bucket List (2007)
Two great actors in a decent film about getting it done before you kick it.
3099 5.9 672. Shrek the Third (2007)
Rather disappointing after the comedic success of the second one but still able to illicit some laughs.
942 7.4 7.771. La Vie en Rose (2007)
Beautiful performance by Cotillard; but the story didn't interest me as much as the singing.
1533 6.3 6.570. Music and Lyrics (2007)
Pop goes my heart!
4809 7.2 7.469. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
Pretty decent new leg to the saga
520 6.6 7.168. The Lookout (2007)
A stoic thriller with a breakout performance by Levitt
301 6.5 6.767. King of California (2007)
It's refreshing to see Douglas back in a likable role and movie and Evan Rachel Wood has gotten my attention this year with this movie and "Across the Universe"
798 6.8 7.466. Mr. Brooks (2007)
A wild role for Costner, possibly his best non-sports role I've seen since 'Wolves'. The ending of the film was awesome if it ended when it should have. If they stuck with the scene I'm referring to then this film could have made the top 50.
1854 5.8 6.165. The Golden Compass (2007)
967 7.1 7.664. August Rush (2007)
Great music, a bit hokey, but good clean fun
9 5.7 7.363. Manda Bala
A wild documentary that will have you scared to ever visit Sau Paulo
68 6.6 7.462. Talk to Me (2007)
A fun look at a crazy DJ during the Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Cheadle is awesome, as usual.
359 6.9 7.261. The Savages (2007)
2066 6.6 7.260. Enchanted (2007)
How could you not love Amy Adams after this film? Some fun songs, too!
842 7.7 7.859. Control (2007)
Love... love will tear us apart.
And it did.
4645 7.2 7.858. 300 (2006)
Excellent fight scenes and one gorgeous Lena Headey
174 6.6 6.857. Seraphim Falls (2006)
125 7.1 7.656. The Namesake (2006)
Kal Penn should do more films like this. Come on, Kal - "Epic Movie" films or "The Namesake" films, make the right choice.
1425 6.2 6.855. Hairspray (2007)
A great cast with pretty likable music and an okay storyline.
97 6.7 7.254. Confessions of a Superhero (2007)
Another noteworthy documentary from 07. They were able to capture some awesome interviews and find some cooky real-life characters. I wanted to keep following them after the credits rolled.
848 6.7 7.253. Fracture (2007)
It's been a while since I've seen Hopkins in a good flick and Gosling is on a roll.
2557 7.5 7.952. Hot Fuzz (2007)
A buddy cop movie in a way only the British can pull off.
1046 6.2 6.851. Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
