Goodness, I really need to start watching more movies. Out of those, I've only seen:

Lost in Translation
Seabiscuit
Mystic River

I guess I'll go with Mystic River because it was the best out of those 3.

Oh man, I can't decide between Pirates and City of God.

I liked Lost In Translation and I own it, but I didn't think it was that great.

Mystic River

(and wasn't City of God a 2002 release?)

I loved Lost in Translation. One of Bill Murray's finest roles. And who didn't love that opening scene;)

However, I thought Mystic River was unbelievable. 2 unbelievable performances from Penn and Robbins. A great story all around.

I liked that movie and I remember talk about a sequel(s) to that movie. Whatever happened with that?

Wow, most of the "good" movies this year really sucked. It's no wonder LOTR swept everything. (Although it could've been up against Gone With The Wind, The Godfather, Citizen Kane, and Casablanca and it still would've swept everything from the three years of hype.)

Finding Nemo was really cute, though.

Pirates of the Carribean is fun, but a little too long for an action/adventure comedy.

Lost in Translation and American Splendor bored me to death, and 21 Grams was just depressing for the sake of being depressing.

Haven't seen the others.

Thanks Muggs. Nothing ever came of the sequel talks, BUT Paul Bettany has made a new movie playing a similar character (Charles Darwin) called Creation. It comes out in January, I can't wait.

I voted Finding Nemo, because it's the only one I saw ... yes as the mother of a small child the only movies I see anymore are animated! :lol:

Sweet. I didn't know that was getting a wide release. I thought it was just going to be on PBS.

Paul Bettany isn't in enough movies. He's such a good actor.

Definitely agree on that. Love his voice/accent.




THANK YOU!!! Sometimes I think I am the only person in the world who loves that movie.

It's one of my top ten favorites all time.

This is a recurrent theme throughout the decade, don't you think? My wife and I went to lots and lots of movies in the late 80's and early 90's. But in the last 12-15 years, we've really cut back because there are so very few that even sound like they would be good, never mind actually being good. I'd guess that I've seen maybe 8-10 movies this decade that I would consider to have been worth my while.

For me it's a tie between LOTR and Finding Nemo.

Not really. There were quite a few very enjoyable movies. Just nothing that stands out as "great".

As for Lost In Translation, I thought that was pretty stupid and boring movie.

Agree, I can't remember when there was any memorable movies in this decade. There have been some good, but not great.

Whatever I was doing in 2001 I found myself doing again in 2003 because I only saw Finding Nemo.

I love Mystic River. It was a tremendous movie.

Lost in Translation, on the other hand, I hated.

Master and Commander. Extremely underrated movie.

Agreed. I think Pirates and Finding Nemo round out my top three for the year. Also, I have no idea where I'd put it on a list, but Oldboy is definitely a very... interesting movie.

Mystic River. I loved the movie just as much as the book and that doesn't happen very often.

Another craptastic list. Lost in Translation was absolutely terrible, I can't believe I wasted a few hours in London watching it.

Am I the only one who hates anything LOTR-related?

(Then again, I generally hate anything of that nature.)

Actually, this is the best year so far in my opinion. I liked Seabiscuit, LOTR, City of God, Mystic River, 21 Grams and M&C. Those other years, I had to vote for LOTR because there really was nothing else I had liked at all. I voted City of God because I really like Brazilian cinema, and being fluent in Portuguese and knowing Rio well certainly helped.

I didn't hate it but after seeing the first one I saw no compelling reason for me to continue watching the rest of the series. I''m with you in that it's not a movie genre I generally enjoy.
