100. TV Junkie (2006)

#100



What starts out as a unique telling of a man's life through the video has shot turns into a depressing but effective dive into the destructive world of drug use while providing for a family.

Rick Kirkham's ego is a little much but it's also fitting.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 174  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.3 
99. Youth Without Youth (2007)
Tim Roth wasn't too annoying in this beautifully shot and strange story written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 127  Average listal rating (54 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.3 
98. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1677  Average listal rating (1119 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.9 
97. Disturbia (2007)
Enjoyable for what it is, an updated version of Hitchcock's "Rear Window".

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 696  Average listal rating (404 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.6 
96. The Kite Runner (2007)
A well-made but too-depressing film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 211  Average listal rating (135 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.8 
95. Eagle vs Shark (2007)
A very low budget and charming New Zealand film with Jemaine Clement, from "Flight of the Conchords"
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1909  Average listal rating (1156 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
94. P.S. I Love You (2007)
Post Script; good to watch with your lady.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 301  Average listal rating (193 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.5 
93. The Water Horse (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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 922  Average listal rating (600 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.4 
92. Death at a Funeral (2007)
A slap-stick British movie with a mediocre cast of characters.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 511  Average listal rating (264 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.6 
91. Lust, Caution (2007)


A beautiful film with an average love story.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1132  Average listal rating (702 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 6.2 
90. Rush Hour 3 (2007)
Least best of the three. Still has some funny lines and good action.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1189  Average listal rating (838 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
89. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 258  Average listal rating (155 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
88. Margot at the Wedding (2007)
Baumbach writing mixed with his usual directing of unusual performances.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 54  Average listal rating (27 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.2 
87. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 563  Average listal rating (364 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.1 
86. The Kingdom (2007)
Decent modern war story; but too generic to really hold my interest enough to see it ever again.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1422  Average listal rating (912 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating
85. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and 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 the gay community rather it makes fun of those who make fun of them.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 55  Average listal rating (30 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.7 
84. The TV Set (2006)
Duchovny is great in this flat film about TV shows making it on the air.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 598  Average listal rating (374 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.5 
83. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1775  Average listal rating (1206 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.2 
82. The Mist (2007)
A warm-up of sorts to Darabont's 'The Walking Dead'. It's psychological horror at its purest. The main thing that brings this down is the acting, and surprisingly, the directing. Darabont nails the King drama/horror but this is on a lower level than 'The Green Mile' and 'Shawshank Redemption'.

The ending horrible yet brilliant at the same time.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 154  Average listal rating (88 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.1 
81. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 3183  Average listal rating (1899 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating
80. Shrek the Third (2007)
Rather disappointing after the comedic success of the second one but still able to illicit some laughs.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 482  Average listal rating (271 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
79. 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
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 425  Average listal rating (239 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.5 
78. The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006)
A sad but well-made Irish War film.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1005  Average listal rating (552 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
77. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1736  Average listal rating (1077 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.5 
76. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 344  Average listal rating (221 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
75. Breach (2007)
Cool story, interesting pace, and a bit of a thinker.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 753  Average listal rating (460 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
74. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1637  Average listal rating (1016 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.4 
73. The Bucket List (2007)
Two great actors in a decent film about getting it done before you kick it.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 745  Average listal rating (454 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 6.9 
72. Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Surprisingly good. A few twists and turns with a fun soundtrack; but boasting only average CG animation.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 966  Average listal rating (542 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.7 
71. La Vie en Rose (2007)


Beautiful performance by Cotillard; but the story didn't interest me as much as the singing.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1572  Average listal rating (950 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.5 
70. Music and Lyrics (2007)
Pop goes my heart!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 4957  Average listal rating (3127 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.5 
69. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
Pretty decent new leg to the saga
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 531  Average listal rating (316 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.1 
68. The Lookout (2007)
A stoic thriller with a breakout performance by Levitt
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 304  Average listal rating (165 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
67. 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"
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 818  Average listal rating (529 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.4 
66. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1903  Average listal rating (1221 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.1 
65. The Golden Compass (2007)
Solid cinematography and the greatest polar bear fight caught on film.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1007  Average listal rating (610 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
64. August Rush (2007)
Great music, a bit hokey, but good clean fun
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 9  Average listal rating (6 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
63. Manda Bala
A wild documentary that will have you scared to ever visit Sau Paulo
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 67  Average listal rating (40 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.4 
62. Talk to Me (2007)
A fun look at a crazy DJ during the Civil Rights movement of the 60s. Cheadle is awesome, as usual.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 371  Average listal rating (226 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.2 
61. The Savages (2007)
Solid script and fun performances in this indie comedy.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2138  Average listal rating (1321 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.1 
60. Enchanted (2007)
How could you not love Amy Adams after this film? Some fun songs, too!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 863  Average listal rating (496 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 7.8 
59. Control (2007)
Love... love will tear us apart.

And it did.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 4750  Average listal rating (3305 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.8 
58. 300 (2006)
Excellent fight scenes and one gorgeous Lena Headey
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 178  Average listal rating (123 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
57. Seraphim Falls (2006)
A bear bones adventure with two grounded performances from Neeson and Brosnan

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 128  Average listal rating (76 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
56. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1463  Average listal rating (854 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.8 
55. Hairspray (2007)
A great cast with pretty likable music and an okay storyline.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 98  Average listal rating (33 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
54. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 877  Average listal rating (580 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
53. Fracture (2007)
It's been a while since I've seen Hopkins in a good flick and Gosling is on a roll.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2629  Average listal rating (1781 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.9 
52. Hot Fuzz (2007)
A buddy cop movie in a way only the British can pull off.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1063  Average listal rating (740 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.7 
51. Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
The title says it all. From start to finish this is a wild ride and gloriously violent.

Stehako's rating:


 

In the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

Out of the 149 films I saw in this glorious year, these are my favorite 100, in order.

83 films with a 3.5 star rating or higher and 113 with 3, this was a great year!

Plus 8 films with 5 stars!

Great job for putting 'Into the Wild' at number 1. That movie should of won Best Picture at the Oscars.

Thanks, I agree. Not sure why it wasn't even considered
