I just saw RED EYE for the first time, ever, but on your R1 DVD.

Absolutely loved every minute of it. Can anyone tell me which movie this movie is similar to?? There is this other movie that was released in recent years that kind of had the same plot to this. A bit like the movie "Cellular" or "Speed". But I'm sure there's another movie like this.

 
It would be nicer if we had a date first  Wink

I doubt everyone has seen enough of the year end releases to make such a list. DVD releases are another thing however....wait a minute, that quote was already said.


I guess some people need everything spelled out for them. The point I was (expletive) trying to make is that without having seen what many critics have said are some of the best movies of 2005 it was difficult for me and I would bet a number of people across the country, to produce a list of the best of 2005. Many of those films are not in wide release. If you read (scroll up) instead of rushing to mock someone, you would figure out the point I was making. So I just made a list of the films that I have seen so far that I tfeel are AMONG the best of 2005. But it is by no means complete. Does that help you?


I just wanted to f**k with you

Unfortunately for those of us that live in smaller towns, some of the best movies never actually play in theaters.  Munich is opening tomorrow, but it doesn't look like I will get Brokeback Mountain or Capote in theaters.  We didn't get The Squid and the Whale either.  Those are the only smaller releases that look like they would make my list of best movies.

Rumor Has It was fairly disappointing for me.  I like the premise, but they really didn't do much with it.

Well, most of the contenders for Directors Guild, Writers Guild, Foreign Press and Academy honors are still in limited release and are not on DVD. Many of the best films of last year only opened at the tail end of 2005 as is almost always the case. I was just stating that many people probably have yet to see a number of last year's truly great films.

I'm not sure what you are talking about.  I've seen over 100 movies released in 2005 and there are just a few of the limited releases that I think could make my year end list.

I didn't like the Wedding Crashers. I think I only laughed once and that was only a chuckle. But, I've seen far worst movies this year though, so it's not on my worst 10.

Capote
Grizzly Man
Enron
The Squid and The Whale
Kung Fu Hustle
A History Of Violence
Good Night, and Good Luck
Broken Flowers
Thumbsucker

I've just bought your R1 "Wedding Crashers" and "Broken Flowers". Will watch "Broken Flowers" this weekend, after New year's.
My favorites of the year (in no particular order):

Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith
King Kong
Chronicles of Narnia The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
The Island one of the best.  Sorry, but that is too funny.  I recommend anyone that likes the Island to rent Clonus:  The Parts Horror.  The producers of that film have sued Michael Bay for ripping off their really bad movie.

Best movies:

Batman Begins
Broken Flowers
Cinderella Man
The Constant Gardner
The 40 Year Old Virgin
In Her Shoes
King Kong
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Sin City
Syriana
An Unfinished Life
Walk the Line
Wedding Crashers
Sin City
Batman Begins
Cinderella Man

and

hopefully...Walk the Line and Munich...

These were my personal favorites of '05

I think '06 is shaping up nicely though as well:
Apocalypto, The Da Vinci Code, Miami Vice, X3, Superman Returns, Poseidon, M:I3 (has to be better than the second one), Pirates 2
Sin City is my top of 2005
So what happened to films like War of the Worlds, Star Wars, Sin City, or Batman?
