I saw a compilation of many critics' top picks for movies in 2005. Interestingly, adding them all together, four of the five best picture nominees were considered the second, third, fourth and fifth best films. The one movie not on any top lists was "Crash" which critics rated as the 49th-best movie of the year. Number one on this list was "Grizzly Man."
I liked Mystic River. It was the second movie I've ever seen where I felt devastated at its end (Gallipoli was the first).
The Patriot reminded me of a Simpsons satire. Didn't Mel impale a British Officer with a flag? That movie was trash.
Office Space is hilarious and depressing at the same time. Depressing because we can all relate to it.
I live in Eastern Idaho and Napoleon Dynamite reminds me of some of my neighboring towns.
Maybe we can't appreciate "Citizen Kane" like it's hard to see "I Want to Hold Your Hand" as groundbreaking 40 years later.
Grand Illusion-Yes it's on almost every critic's top 10 list but it's also boring as hell.
Boring? What about "Come Sail Away?"
