Disturbia (2007)

Enjoyable for what it is, an updated version of Hitchcock's "Rear Window".

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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