The Year in Review

Revenge of the Sith - Lucas finally back on top - and the biggest space battle ever seen.


My Top Picks

  1. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith: Opening with a space battle to end all space battles, George Lucas finally came back in top form.
  2. The Exorcism of Emily Rose: A surprisingly good "horror film" filled with heart and characters you could actually care about.
  3. Kingdom of Heaven: A daring film, particularly in the political climate of the day which showed us that not everything is black and white as far as religion goes.
  4. V for Vendetta
  5. Hostel


Notable Mentions (Surprise Films)

  1. The Jacket
  2. Angel-A
  3. Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist
  4. Dear Frankie
  5. Sin City
  6. Unleashed (Danny the Dog)
  7. Lord of War


The Biggest Disappointments

  1. Doom: Even if they'd just copied the game it would have been good but instead they decided to change the story.
  2. The Brothers Grimm: Not quite sure what could have been done to save this mess.
  3. Mirrormask: A hodge-podge of ideas and sfx which never actually congeals.
  4. Sound of Thunder, A: Excellent Premise, terrible film.
  5. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Leave the original TV series alone.
  6. The Man: A buddy film which doesn't make the grade.
