Disturbia (2007)


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

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2011 Average listal rating (1226 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7


A nice romantic that doesn't pair well with Butler's other movie from this year (300).
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 814 Average listal rating (518 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.2



Director: Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini
Their 4th movie
My 2nd movie watched from the director


Just when I think I've seen all of what 2007 had to offer my wife introduces me to this movie. It's nothing special but certainly better than I expected. Sure, filled with lots of cliches, but Johansson and Linney form a nice antagonist chemistry and the ending is sad and sweet.

Solid cinematography and the greatest polar bear fight caught on film.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 621 Average listal rating (413 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
The Kingdom (2007)


Decent modern war story; but too generic to really hold my interest enough to see it ever again.
Stehako's rating:


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. Something people didn't seem to understand and thus called it a homophobic movie.

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 1319 Average listal rating (932 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.2
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 1293 Average listal rating (818 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.2
Rush Hour 3 (2007)


I really liked the first one, nearly loved the second one; so, needless to say, this one was disappointing.
Still had enough of what I wanted - Banter and Chan choreography.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 360 Average listal rating (227 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7
Breach (2007)


Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 660 Average listal rating (422 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5


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 571 Average listal rating (289 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.5


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


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:


Nick Cage finds things and then more things and throws in some unoriginal humor and then finds more things until he finds what he really wants.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 259 Average listal rating (149 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5
Away from Her (2007)



Director: Sarah Polley
Her First Movie
My 3rd movie watched from the director.


A tough movie to watch, not because it's not good, but because I am a husband and this is a scenario I hope I never have to face. It's a beautiful depiction of a devoted husband having to face the reality of his wife's ailment, that most notably, does not allow her to remember things... and eventually him. It's completely frustrating, sad, and lovely. I won't spoil the end, of course, but I am happy with it and I certainly liked this more than I thought I would.

The two lead performances are very strong and likely memorable. I love Julie Christie, but I am unfamiliar with Gordon Pinsent. I am not sure how he hasn't been cast in more big-picture work.

The TV Set (2006)
Duchovny is great in this flat film about TV shows making it on the air.

Stehako's rating:

Persepolis (2007)
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1083 Average listal rating (593 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8


Clive Owen adds some interesting scenes, and of course the story is good and Cate will always be amazing. Bonus points for the cinematography/production design improvement over the first one.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1005 Average listal rating (657 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.4


A slap-stick British comedy with a solid cast but mediocre characters.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 281 Average listal rating (174 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6


Baumbach writing mixed with his usual directing of unusual performances.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 267 Average listal rating (164 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5


Denzel's directorial debut is respectable; but not nearly as great as his performance ability.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 54 Average listal rating (29 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 7.1


A comical documentary 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 233 Average listal rating (150 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8


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 1833 Average listal rating (1148 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.4


Two great actors in a decent film about getting it done before you kick it. About friendship, love, life.

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
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 321 Average listal rating (175 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.6


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"

The Lookout (2007)


A stoic thriller with a breakout performance by Levitt
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 818 Average listal rating (504 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.9


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 901 Average listal rating (590 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.3
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:

A wild documentary that will have you scared to ever visit Sau Paulo.

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 1101 Average listal rating (672 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
August Rush (2007)


Great music, though a bit hokey. Robin Williams in another 2000's unlikable role.
Stehako's rating:

Alex Gibney tells the compelling, disgusting story of torture in the modern world. This is a documentary all US citizens need to see.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1096 Average listal rating (737 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8


Surprisingly good. A few twists and turns with a fun soundtrack and funny characters; but boasting only average CG animation.

The Savages (2008)
Solid script and fun performances in this indie comedy.

Enchanted (2007)


How could you not love Amy Adams after this film? Some fun songs and good use of tongue-in-cheek humor.

Stehako's rating:

A bear bones adventure with two grounded performances from Neeson and Brosnan

The Namesake (2007)


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:

Hairspray (2007)


A great cast with pretty likable music; but John Waters probably doesn't like it.

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

Fracture (2007)


It's been a while since I've seen Hopkins in a good flick and Gosling is on a roll.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
The title says it all. From start to finish this is a wild ride and gloriously violent.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2207 Average listal rating (1484 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.8
1408 (2007)


I don't like slasher movies and I rarely enjoy horror movies because they don't actually scare me. This film sort of scared me on a few different levels, plus it had me fooled a couple times.
