Not a 2004 film but this is the last film that I saw in 2004:

I seen a bit of Battle Royal last night about the Japanese school kids torture/ have to kill each other in the island and I didnít like it. I think it horrible and cruel. Didnít that film meant to be banned or something?

Bah! Battle Royale was great. Lord of the Flies with guns (sort of)? How can you go wrong!?

For the record, I want to say that The Village was a good movie only because me and my friend were totally annoying and made fun of it.

Best:
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (brill!)

Worst:
-The Stepford Wives (I still want my money back--I'd say I'm open-minded, but this one plainly stank badly)

Those were the opposite poles for me this year. I'm very likely forgetting some films that got close to either one of these, but then I'll just post again  wink

I'd also like to mention The Incredibles, just because I have very weird feeling towards it. I enjoyed it, but I don't think it quite lived up the hype. I felt like I was constantly waiting for that 'something' to happen, which never really came. Sort of. Oh crud, I'm talking nonsense.

I only go to see good movies, at least since I saw House of the Dead last year and rued spending the nine bucks. I know they're good from the trailers, of course. Well, recently, I've been able to tell. Nine bucks, man, nine whole wingwangs.

So I saw:

1. Team America (F*ck yeah!!)
2. The Incredibles (Super!)
3. Closer (shut up, I have a chick flick side too. And surprisingly, I tolerated Julia Roberts in a chick flick. Also, can't take my eyes... off of Jude)
4. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (Because Jersey is God)
5. Garden State (ditto)
6. Meet the Fockers (even better than the first, though some jokes got overused.)
7. Spidey 2 (I enjoyed myself)

And the mediocres

8. Van Helsing (okay, left me a little unsatisfied, but an overall good watch for once in a while. Nine bucks though, when I could've seen it on TV this year)
9. I, Robot (Good in some parts. I only saw this because the rest of the family wanted to, but I prefer the book)

And... though it came out forty years ago, I bought A Hard Day's Night (Beatles) (40th anniversary edition), and enjoyed it immensely. That should've been released in the theaters, actually, to commemorate Fab Four Weekend.

EDIT- Oh wait, forgot about Passion of the Christ. NINE WHOLE WINGWANGS!! NINE WHOLE WINGWANGS!! *growls*

Okay, so I guess I don't always see good flicks.

I really didn't see too many films this year...but:

Best:
1. Shrek 2
2. Incredibles

Meh (could go either way):
1. Shark Tale (I only liked The sharks and the two Jellyfish...Will Smith's character sucked though.)
2. Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events (Count Olaf was great, as was Violet. But overall the plot felt just a little dissapointing and weak. I was expecting better from the guy who directed "Casper", Brad Silberling. -_-)
3. The Spongebob Movie
(There were a few moments in it where I chuckled, mostly only Patrick's lines, but other than that, it was sort of bland. I seriously couldn't see why they had to stop production on the TV Show to make THAT.)

Worst Movies:
1. Garfield The Movie (I'm sorry, i'm just so bloody frigging sick of Classic Cartoon Characters getting turned into live action! ARGH! The only one cartoon-to-live action that was worthwhile was the first Casper movie. But Garfield was just...butt ugly in this! I mean, I know he's not that cute in the comic strip, but mixing live action looks with the comic look did NOT work. >_< Plus, since when did he move around that much? And what was with the veternarian and Jon? She wasn't EVER that cheerful in the strip. Just...no.)

2. Fat Albert
(I haven't seen it...but see above statement on Garfield.   wink)

I think I'll have to remove The Life Aquatic from my list of "The Best of '04".  While it had some really good parts, it was, all in all, disappointing in the extreme. I guess I let my pro-Wes Anderson/Bill Murray bias in.

I didn't hate it as much as you did, but I really thought it wasn't as good as it should have been.  If I wasn't as lazy as I am, I would write a review of it for the review thread, but alas, I'm pretty lazy.  There were some good parts to the movie, but you are right -  right when the pirates attacked, the movie got silly and stupid and fractured.  I did like Willam Defoe, though.  "You're the B-Team leader!"

The problem with the pirates in The Life Aquatic is that they're meant to be taken as a serious threat.  If they were goofy pirates, then they'd be excusable.  But Wes Anderson makes their scenes into a real life-or-death, "nail-biter" adventure.  They totally break the tone and the pacing of the movie, IMO.

I saw that for the first time this year when it was on TV, it was so cool I bought the shiny DVD, I'm glad Melllvar mentioned its coolness in #fc or I might not have seen it  cool

Troy != good;

I'm disappointed in you ravenstar..... that movie was just about homosexuality... I mean c'mon, in one part of the movie a soldier offers to suck off Alexander.  I'm pretty sure that never happened.  And then what was up with the army cutting off their enemies testicles and playing sex games with them?  That movie was grossly misaccurate as well as overwhelmingly sexually themed... it was like male homosexual pornography....  no no  roll eyes

Alright just because I'm clueless, I want to know what was so wonderful about the Incredibles? I just want to know. I'll admit the last 10 minutes were sort of funny. But I'm curious.

Movies that haven't been mentioned more than 3 times:

Catwomen
Blade Trinity
Anchorman
Dodgeball ATUDS
Alexander (But there's no questioning)
Home on the Range
Ray
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Resident Evil
The Punisher
The Polar Express
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
The Chronicles of Riddick
Walking Tall
Ocean's 12 (Good movie)
Hellboy

Best Movies that weren't even from this decade:
Halloween
Halloween 2

Anyone know where I can find a list of all the movies released in theatres across North America in 2004? I I've seen at least 25, and I want to rate them all. IMDB doesn't work for this because it lists pornos, and made for TV crap an the like, so there's just too much to sift through. Here are my three favorites of 2004 anyway in no particular order.

Team America World Police
Anchorman
Finding Neverland(I went in expecting it to be some chick flick crap, but it was actually a really good movie. It was almost along the same lines as Bigfish.)

Ooh, I forgot to add something to my list.

Overrated:
Collateral.  I still don't understand where the praise for this comes from.  It's a substandard action movie, that's it.  And it continues my hatred of Tom Cruise.  Blegh.

Awesome
Team America: World Police
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Finding Neverland
Shaun of the Dead

Good
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Walking Tall
The Bourne Supremacy
Super Size Me
Secret Window
Collateral
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
DodgeBall
Saw
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Sherk 2
Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind
Starsky & Hutch
Mr. 3000

In Between
I, Robot
50 First Dates
The Whole Ten Yards

Bad
White Chicks
The Day After Tomorrow
Fahrenheit 9/11(It was well put together, but I didn't like it because it was way too one sided.)

Crap
Without a Paddle

So Bad It's Good
Van Helsing
Seed Of Chucky
Cellular

Only Went to See it because I Was on a Date
Little Black Book

That's all I can remember right now. May have missed 2 or 3, but I got most of the ones I've seen this year. There are way more good ones than bad ones on the list because I can usually avoid bad movies, unless they're the good kind of bad.

I seriously loved Anchorman. There was a girl I worked with this Summer who liked it even more than I did and it was all we'd talk about for most of the day.

*Edit* Thought of one I missed, added Mr. 3000 to good pile. Keep in mind that it doesn't mean I like all these movies the same, it just means that they had more good than bad points.

I haven't seen too many movies this year but here goes:

The Best:
1) Dodgeball

Decent movies:

2) The Punisher (Just didn't buy it)

Bad Movies:
1) Saw (good idea, BAD acting)
2) Fahrenheit 9/11 (Propaganda film cleaverly disguised as a documentary)

I just saw Ocean's 12 yesterday with my friends.  I thought it was really good, but a little too extended than the last one!  But one of my friends didn't like it. 

Ocean's 12 makes my list of Best Movies of 2004!

How can people hate the Incredibles when it was directed and written by Brad Bird, one of the main people behind the classic episodes of the Simpsons?

Just because he directed some great Simpsons episodes doesn't mean that everything he directs has to be a masterpiece.

John, OK, seriously. Just because someone made something that was good way back when, doesn't mean everything he or she directs/produces/writes is good. It is just stupid to view things that way. In my opinion, Star Wars Episode I wasn't very good, but that doesn't mean I didn't like the original trilogy.

Morbo demands to know what The Chronicles of Riddick was like, apparently the game based on it is one of the best of the year...

Yeah I can only imagine everyone saying "I only saw the Incredibles for Brad Bird and Graig Kannear". I don't even know who BB is.

Don't worry Spacedal, John Pannozzi is an idiot, everyone knows that.

To add on a few 2004 movies I've seen in 05...

Spongebob - Could have been better, still pretty funny.
Finding Neverland - Nothing really wrong with it, it just wasn't that interesting.
