#100





People were disappointed with the third film. I felt it was the most visually appealing of the trilogy. I really enjoyed the hallucination scene, for example.

Hoffman tries to be a new kind of Wonka but with less success. A fun little film with nice messages but the wonders are limited because of unnecessary use of unpolished gaudy VFX.

But how could you not want to see a film with Natalie Portman?

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1819 Average listal rating (1205 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Disturbia (2007)


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

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2005 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 2097 Average listal rating (1355 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.1


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

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 615 Average listal rating (405 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.

People who added this item 350 Average listal rating (240 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4


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 1312 Average listal rating (928 ratings) 6.7 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 1279 Average listal rating (807 ratings) 5.8 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 361 Average listal rating (227 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7
Breach (2007)


Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 655 Average listal rating (418 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 560 Average listal rating (282 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.5
Lust, Caution (2007)


A beautiful film with an average love story.
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:


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.

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 1081 Average listal rating (596 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 1003 Average listal rating (655 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 280 Average listal rating (170 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6


Baumbach writing mixed with his usual directing of unusual performances.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 263 Average listal rating (160 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.6


Denzel's directorial debut is respectable; but not nearly as great as his performance ability.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 53 Average listal rating (28 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 232 Average listal rating (148 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 1817 Average listal rating (1136 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.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1631 Average listal rating (989 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.5


Pop goes my heart!

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 504 Average listal rating (277 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8


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 323 Average listal rating (176 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"
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 540 Average listal rating (320 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7
The Lookout (2007)


A stoic thriller with a breakout performance by Levitt
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 817 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 899 Average listal rating (587 ratings) 6.8 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:
People who added this item 10 Average listal rating (7 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 0


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

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 75 Average listal rating (46 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.3
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 1095 Average listal rating (667 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:
People who added this item 104 Average listal rating (55 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.4


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 1059 Average listal rating (706 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8


Surprisingly good. A few twists and turns with a fun soundtrack and funny characters; but boasting only average CG animation.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 394 Average listal rating (230 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Savages (2008)
Solid script and fun performances in this indie comedy.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2399 Average listal rating (1517 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
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:
People who added this item 205 Average listal rating (145 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
A bear bones adventure with two grounded performances from Neeson and Brosnan

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 136 Average listal rating (79 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
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:
People who added this item 1558 Average listal rating (939 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.6
Hairspray (2007)


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

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1046 Average listal rating (593 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.6


Beautiful performance by Cotillard; but the story didn't interest me as much as the singing.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 5216 Average listal rating (3714 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
300 (2007)


Excellent fight scenes and one gorgeous Lena Headey

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 1137 Average listal rating (795 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7
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 2184 Average listal rating (1469 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.
