You know, I think Team America's the only movie I've seen this year too. Therfore it wins in every category for me, which it would anyway because it's an amazing movie.

Never mind what I said before, I saw both of these movies too. Dawn of the Dead was pretty good. The first Spider Man was better in my opinion.

Finally, we have something in common.  Dawn of the Dead was pretty good for a remake.  I gave Spider-man a 10/10, while Spider-man 2 an 8/10 or 8.5/10.  I felt Spider-man 2 was too sappy making Doc Ock turn good at the end.

I felt like slapping you with a dead fish (Incredibles bad, Shark Tale good? What are you smoking..?) up until the last line of your post, where upon I agreed with you completely, so I'll merely be prodding you with a comatose lungfish now..

But Doc Ock was always good. It was the arms that controlled his mind and made him do evil.

I personally thought Spider-man 2 was a lot better than the original, mostly because Doc Ock was cooler than the Green Goblin IMO. He was actually scary, wheras the Goblin was just kind of creepy.

Anyway, here are my lists...

Favorite Movie This Year: The Incredibles

Honorable Mentions: Spider-Man 2, Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, Shrek 2

Worst: The Garfield Movie

(Dis)Honorable Mentions: Catwoman, Team America: World Police, Alien Vs. Predator

Best:
The Incredibles
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Team America: World Police
The Manchurian Candidate
(Honorable mention to Fahrenheit 9/11) 

Worst is probably "Along Came Polly" I guess.  I'm fairly good at avoiding the worst crap.  I've even started just skipping sequels like "Shrek 2" when I don't think they'll be as good as the original

I liked Napoleon Dynamite and Anchorman well enough. I was pestered into watching Spider-Man 2 by my cousin, and found it not to suck (the first one didn't, either).

But by far the best film I've seen all year, and one of the best I've seen in several years is Shaun of the Dead. English guys cracking sarcastic jokes while taking out a horde of the living dead. Good times.

Kicked your ass.

only seen a few, but Eternal Sunshine is one of my favorite movies.  I thought Spiderman 2 wasn't so bad, and Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events was okay.

the only other movies i saw were Shrek 2 and Team America, both of which i didn't like that much. Oh, and The Day After Tomorrow, which pretty much sucked.

Shit! I forgot about The Butterfly Effect! That's second best!
@Ben: Incredibles sucked! I thought it was super boring and a pain in my ass. I only know 2 other people who agree with me. And I loved Shark Tale. It was adorible! The shrimp made me cry which makes me totally pathedic. Bottom line folks:
Spacedal is sick of Disney's bad-shitful movies and has moved on to Dreamworks.

I did not see many movies in the cinema this year; anyway after one year of their released dates they go on canal plus, my digital TV.

None of the movies I saw this year in the cinema were as impressive as I wanted them to be:

Passion of Christ (La Passion du Christ)-scenes were too horrible and revolting to watch;

Troy (Troie) -Too long and boring;

The day after tomorrow (le jour d'après) – The special effects were impressive but lacked characters' emotional developments throughout the plot.

Your anti-disney attitude has clouded your vision.

1.) The Incredibles is made by Pixar. Disney has no creative involvement, they only distrubute the movie.

2.) Dreamworks sucks about as much as Disney, as far as animation is concerned. They should be punched for coming up with Shark Tale.

1.) The Incredibles I believe was Disney & Pixar's last film they did together. Now Pixar is alone and I don't know might team up with someone else. So therefore I'll go easy on Pixar. I still hated the movie.

2.) You're right with the animation but I thought Shark Tale was cute. It didn't make me laugh or anything but I liked it.

Pixar does the writing and animation and everything. Disney just distributes and gets rich.

Disney had about as much involvement with The Incredibles as Fox had involvement in Futurama.  Both equally evil companies really, so there's no need to think so harshly of Pixar because of the Disney connection.  They hate Disney, hence the next one ("Cars" ) will be the last one they do under the Disney name.

For the last time, Fox and Disney aren't evil companies! They are just regular companies who like money. I also happen to like money, though I don't have too much of it.

I thought Troy was ok, especially the special effects. Same goes for Day After Tomorrow. I saw a bunch of movies this year actually...

That is true, but in this case I think Disney has become specially greedy/evil over the past few years.

I thought they just hated Eisner and were holding off on looking for a new partner until his successor is appointed?

All Pixar want is a fairer deal from Disney, they don't necessarily want to walk away from them. To the wider world Disney is as synonymous with CGI movies as Pixar or Dreamworks - all without them actually lifting a finger creatively. It's the same principle which makes people confuse a variety of traditional animated movies with Disney Animated Classics (TM :/).

Number one reason Pixar should not leave Disney :

Disney should not make Toy Story 3.

Oh, and the only movie I saw in the cinema this year was The Incredibles, which would have been my best movie regardless.

I think its more complicated then just Eisner.  Disney is very stifling and controlling, and apparently just a very difficult company to work with.  Of course Eisner management does not help.

So its similar to Fox with Futurama.....I get the impression that Pixar had a similarly rough relationship with Disney, but thankfully they were able to keep Disney out of the creative side for the most part.

The best movie of 2004 I've seen was, and I'm surprised no one has mentioned this was.....

The Village!

And worst would have to be Alfie.  I saw it with a girlfriend I was dating very briefly.   Huge disapointment, really boring and long!
