100. Zeitgeist (2007)

#100



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".

99. I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With (2006)
Garland is pretty funny in this unique indie film about finding someone to love.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 428  Average listal rating (234 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.8 
98. Rendition (2007)
An average modern war film with underwhelming performances by a great cast.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 127  Average listal rating (53 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.3 
97. 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 202  Average listal rating (126 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.9 
96. 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 1636  Average listal rating (1079 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.9 
95. Disturbia (2007)
Enjoyable for what it is, an updated version of Hitchcock's "Rear Window".

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 673  Average listal rating (385 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
94. The Kite Runner (2007)
A well-made but too-depressing film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1861  Average listal rating (1119 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
93. P.S. I Love You (2007)
Post Script; good to watch with your lady.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 289  Average listal rating (183 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.5 
92. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 892  Average listal rating (571 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.4 
91. Death at a Funeral (2007)
A slap-stick British movie with a mediocre cast of characters.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 490  Average listal rating (250 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.6 
90. Lust, Caution (2007)
A beautiful film with an average love story
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1092  Average listal rating (668 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 6.2 
89. 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 1161  Average listal rating (807 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
88. 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 255  Average listal rating (150 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
87. Margot at the Wedding (2007)
Baumbach writing mixed with his usual directing of unusual performances.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 55  Average listal rating (28 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.2 
86. 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 551  Average listal rating (351 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.1 
85. 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 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 720  Average listal rating (432 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 6.9 
83. Meet the Robinsons (2007)
Surprisingly good. A few twists and turns and average CG animation.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 733  Average listal rating (446 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
82. 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 586  Average listal rating (362 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.5 
81. 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 474  Average listal rating (264 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
80. 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 148  Average listal rating (81 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating 6.2 
79. 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 412  Average listal rating (224 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 970  Average listal rating (534 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 1677  Average listal rating (1042 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 1395  Average listal rating (888 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating 6.1 
75. 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.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 338  Average listal rating (214 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.1 
74. Breach (2007)
Cool story, interesting pace, and a bit of a thinker.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1584  Average listal rating (972 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 3099  Average listal rating (1854 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
72. 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 939  Average listal rating (511 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 1530  Average listal rating (916 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.5 
70. Music and Lyrics (2007)
Pop goes my heart!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 4802  Average listal rating (3023 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.4 
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 520  Average listal rating (306 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 301  Average listal rating (159 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 798  Average listal rating (503 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 1852  Average listal rating (1177 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 967  Average listal rating (586 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 68  Average listal rating (37 ratings) 6.6  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 359  Average listal rating (218 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 2063  Average listal rating (1273 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.2 
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 843  Average listal rating (483 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 4642  Average listal rating (3212 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 173  Average listal rating (118 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.8 
57. Seraphim Falls (2006)
A bear bones adventure with two grounded performances from Neeson and Brosnan

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 125  Average listal rating (74 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 1425  Average listal rating (830 ratings) 6.2  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 96  Average listal rating (31 ratings) 6.7  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 847  Average listal rating (543 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 2551  Average listal rating (1723 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 1044  Average listal rating (719 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.8 
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!

One of the best years I can remember. I've seen over 100 films from this year too and still have several film (that look good) to go!

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
