    doesnt even gotta be in order.
    has been filled with shitty sequels/3rd episodes (shrek/spidey/fantastic four), overhyped gore fests (hostel/hills have eyes/28weeks), big dumb summer movies (transformers/bourne), and shit comedy (wild hogs/rush hour).

    so here's my top 5 so far this year...
    1. ratatouille
    2. superbad
    3. 300
    4. hatchet (released in 2006, but never got distributed until 2007)
    5. eastern promises

    honorable mention: grindhouse, black book, lives of others, shoot em up (dumb fun with 3 of my favorite actors), fracture (hopkins playing a caricature of lecter), disturbia (hitchcock's rear window meets goosebumps :mamoru: )

    pan's labyrinth missed the cut by 2 days :o

    i still need to see, 30 days of night, assassination of jesse james by the coward robert ford, into the wild, american gangster, and No country for old men.

    interesting about your grindhouse opinion. i liked the planet terror for the dumb fun of zombies.
    yet, i liked the dialogue and dry humor of the characters interaction in death proof. totally different movies that should be appreciated for completely different reasons.

    whats your beef with 300?
    did you see it on your own accord after watching the previews or did you watch because everyone else told you it was a must see?
    alot of times for me i notice that the expectations i have going into a movie, have an impact on my opinion afterwards.

    i expected transformers to really suck since i cant stand michael bey... and yet, somehow he was able to deliver and made the movie suck even more than i expected. :bigthumb:

    i loved planet terror, i'm a sucker for zombie movies

    death proof just bored me to death, i know it was done that way on purpose to mimic the cheap 70's movies but i don't like those movies either lol
    planet terror was fun enough it made up for it though, any stupid zombie type movie will have me giggling like a kid i admit it lol

    i see 300 made a list as being a shit movie, i almost put it on my shit list as well but it escaped by an inch, it just seemed like a weak plot homosexual version of gladiator to me, just a bunch of sweaty shirtless greeks that spend 3 hours a day in golds gym before fighting to the death lol. the first 20 minutes was interesting then it just sort of became too shirtless shaved and muscular man meat focused for my taste
    but since the movie made a gazillion dollars im sure i'm the weird one cause most people seemed to love it

    and yuma, i say just watch the original it was better anyway

    Yeah nigga. Hatchet top 5.
    Variety of kill scenes.
    This is the new shit as a continual montra.
    And many things about the villian kept secret.

    In no particular order:

    The Lookout
    Disturbia
    Transformers
    The Last Mimzy (did he just say the last mimzy?! - not only did my little cousin enjoy it, but I did as well)
    Seraphim Falls

    And I also loved Blades Of Glory, sure it was a dumb comedy, but I laughed my ass off.

    I've been so busy this year, I just haven't had time to go to theaters...so I rent most of the movies I've seen...so I've really only seen the movies that were released in the first half of the year.

    well.. it didn't really have any closure in real life either

    I thought it was very well done in how it kept you guessing and such. I was also quite interested in seeing history played out as well

    saw 4
    harry potter 5 (only one? i guess no one is a potter fan)
    grindhoue (both films)
    hot fuzz
    30 Days of Night

    here's my problem with 300: it killed the best line in the film

    - Our arrows will block out the sun
    - Then we will fight in the shade (<--- best line)

    later on the the movie

    guys laughing
    - what's so funny?
    - we're fighting in the shade

    every screen writer knows what the best line of their film is going to be. You don't destroy that by making it a joke.

    The best:

    american gangster
    300
    superbad
    1408
    knocked up
    good luck chuck (really did not have much expectations, but i laughed my ass off the whole movie)
    black snake moan
    harry potter order of phoenix (seemed more for the 'matured' audience this time)
    bourne ultimatum
    transformers (really over-hyped, but thought was good)
    the number 23 (i thought was good, but probably only one)



    Worst:

    Pirates of caribean (story is over, they just are making sequels for money now)
    balls of fury (terrible humor, just was not funny)
    hot rod (too much like napolean dynamite, there can only be one napolean)
    norbit
    hannibal rising

    tons more terrible movies...

    and they knew that movie is filled with tons of great lines.
