What movie did you like the most out of all the movies last year?

I think the one I liked the most was War of the Worlds. I just remember how much my eyes were glued to the screen while it played, just being amazed at all the shocking things happening. I won't say it's perfect, but I really enjoyed it.

I also liked Star Wars Episode 3 and Batman Begins. Narnia seemed pretty decent too. Haven't seen Kong yet.

For me, the movies that I liked were Land of the Dead and Wallace and Gromit.

That's a tough call, but being a big Firefly fanatic I'd have to say Serenity.
Though I realize most of the non-fans I know that saw it only thought it was so-so. I guess you need to have seen the show to appreciate it *shrugs*

I'm also doing that other comic "Space Waffles".
We now have a podcast called The Random Pirate Comics Show!

Serenity was decent, I'd seen the show, and I liked both.

Just didn't particularly stand out for me, but I do want to see it again.

Serenity was strong… Batman Begins was stronger.

I wish I could say Corpse Bride was in there but it's not. King Kong was patchy ranging from fantastic to merely okay and Harry Potter was just…. ugh.

So Batman Begins is it. Honourable second to Wallace and Gromit, winning the funniest funny fun thing category.

Best for me would have to be between Walk The Line and The 40 Year Old Virgin. Best comic related movie was definitely batman begins.

Worst was fantastic four–ugh.

For some reason when I read this thread yesterday, I had forgotten Sin City came out this year. I guess it was so cool it had to have been released a longer time ago, or something. :)

Yeah, Sin City for me. That movie just oozes awesome. The other movies I saw all had good and bad points (except one that was exceptionally stupid, I don't have patience for heartwarming face-of-adversity crap) but Sin City was flawless. :)

Movie of the Year = King Kong. Hands down. And up. And sideways.

Other good ones (That I enjoyed): Harry Potter, 40-Y-O Virgin, Sin City (though I thought that came out last year…), and Batman Begins. Disliked: Bad News Bears, STEALTH, and a few select others which fail me at the moment….

Walace and Gromit and SW: Episode III were the only movies on the big screen I saw this year. W&G was better.

You did yourself a disservice then, there were a few very good films worth seeing onthe big screen last year… and SWIII wasn't one of them.

This is an opinion thread. There is no right or wrong. :wink:

"In no particular order, I enjoyed King Kong (for what it was), Batman Begins, SWIII, and Good night and good luck. I even thought Chicken Little was pretty good. :lol:

I still want to see these
Sin City
Harry Potter GOF
Chronicles Of Narnia
Million Dollar Baby
Ice Harvest
Capote
Corpse Bride
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit
Cinderella Man
40 Year Old Virgin

Throw “Walk The Line” in there and you've got a killer list. Cinderella Man kicked ass, as did The 40 Year Old Virgin

Wait a second, I forgot I also saw Good Night and Good Luck.

THAT was the best movie I saw this year.

I can't say I enjoyed any movies lately. :(
I'm turning into a cold heartless monster or something.

whatever happened to the good movies like Legend, Labyrinth, and Willow? They're all stuck in the eighties I guess. :cry:

Heh. You forgot Krull and Howard the Duck! :P


Hey, I just watched Serenity! That was really good, even though I never followed Firefly. Thumbs up! :)

I was just happy that it was shown in Norway…. once… at a very small cinema…


But still, the series was never on here. So it suprised me.

Jubilee has been in the last two movies. I think many fans would agree that it would be better if she stays a minor cameo character.

Yes! Is that wrong!?

Yes the Goonies were awesome.
Wierd Science and Sixteen candles. Heheh…but I guess that makes me an 80's dork. (Sweet my internet crush has a crush on me now, I'll go celebrate and get myself some sourpatch)

Whoever said they'd want to watch underwold 2….UUUUHHHHHHGGGG…I hope your eyes melt before the movie is released. The first one was horrible.

A person could make the argument that Labyrinth was bizarre and disturbing, and they might be right. But something about the fact that it hit me during the prime of my childhood and left such a lasting impression makes me remember it fondly.

Also, I haven't seen in around 15 years, so I could be remembering quality that isn't there. I know that happend to me with He-Man and Scooby-Doo.

The best for my money was Hitchhiker's. A great interpetation of a great sci-fi comedy. Some of the additional material was a bit glib, but still a funny movie. Although Wallace & Grommit was a little funnier(and certainly the better of the two stop-motion animation movies of last year).

You some kind of crazy person?

That film literally moved me to tears. Not good tears! The bad kind!

I admit that it was a very hard book to adapt but some of the stuff they chucked in there… it just didn't make sense!
