Best Movies of 2005?

So, the Golden Globes were announced this morning and the movie nominees were these gay-ass movies I have yet to see (or will see), So, it got me thinking. Is it me or did 2005 suck big-time for movies? After seeing the X-Men 3, MI:3, Superman Returns and Miami Vice trailers this month and Casino Royale coming out, too, I am hopeful that 2006 will be a better year for films. However, my question is this...What do you think was the best movie of the year?

I'll chime in later with my pick.

batman was the only movie I paid to see, then purchased on DVD as well. Granted I didnt go to many movies this year, but this one is the only one that stands out to me.

I actually liked Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Not that is it was awarding winning or elsething like that. I just thought it was a fun flick. Bradgelina sure is easy to look at.

Batman fuckin kicked ass

Star Wars III rocked

KungFu Hustle was fun as well.

Heard good things about Cinderella Man

Syriana looks to be a heavy hitter.


Refresh my memory, are pron films recognized at the Golden Globes? Cause there were some great ones this year.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I saw quite a few in the theatres (like..4) Batman Begins and Revenge of the Sith stand out as personal favorites.

WSE's post reminded me about Kung Fu Hustle. I really liked that so I bought it. Keeping in that Chinese vein, I liked House of Flying Daggers as well. Oh well, I bought that too.

Oh, you mean no one wants to see or recommend "Brokeback Mountain" aka "Lonesome Dave" aka "Bareback Mountain" ? (brings new meaning to the word "cowpoke")

I LOVED Crash, but then, its my nickname, so I'm biased that way.

I'm really diggin Net Flix! I'm seeing all these movies I never got around to seeing and missed. It works pretty good, if you haven't tried it.

I have no idea if the movies I like were released in 2005. House of Flying Dragons was good, but I liked Hero better.

Hey, where can I find these trailers? As for movies, I liked Star Wars ep 3 and Batman Begins. These are just personal preferences. I like movies with lots of fighting and guns, so I wouldn't be a fair judge of chick flick type movies. It would be darn tough to get me to see a musical such as Rent, even if it were good. If there is going to be an MI:3 and X-men 3, I can't wait. You guys had to love MI:2. Motorcycle chases galore with guns; with all the posts about weapons here, these go hand and hand, and it obviously was geared to folks like us.

I saw the Superman Returns one on Yahoo in their movies section, and Yahoo has the MI3 trailer as well. They are pretty basic teaser trailers, I'm not even sure what Superman is about other than it's between 2 and 3 (or is it 3 and 4). I'm interested in the XMenIII trailer though, I'll have to search tonight.

Walk the Line was good (not perfect, but good) and I enjoyed Jarhead.

I am waiting to see The Family Stone, Good Night and Good Luck, and Pride and Prejudice (because I've seen every other version and it's one of my favorite novels).

There was a lot more on TV this year that interested me than there was in the theaters.

You have to give Batman Begins some respect, it was mostly filmed in Chicago.

Okay, I'm going to finally give my pick. I saw Crash and it was good, but for me the best movie of the year was Batman Begins. That movie is how the Batman franchise should have started out in the first place.

+1 on this. They tried to make Batman too comical in the past. This dude is more serious. He brought "Equilibrium" to the Batman franchise. If you watch the cartoons and read the comics, you will see that Batman is a mean dude. Unlike Superman, he will let many of his villains die, and will aid in their ultimate destruction.

Sin City and Batman Begins standout in my mind. I can't remember to many others. I know that i Have missed a lot of the movies i wanted to see. I think I'm about ready to give up on theaters and just rent instead.

+1

This is basically what I do. I just watched Sin City (also good movie) Batman, and Stealth on DVD in the last few weeks. I will rent Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Fantastic Four in a week or so. I think I will have to check out MI:3 and X:Men 3 at the theatres this May.
