*indicates first viewing

LARGE titles are likely TOP TEN Conteders.

DECEMBER

Maria Full of Grace*.....B+

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (DVD, third viewing)....B

The extended cut isn't as good as the original cut. More stupid, crass jokes, nothing that really adds to the experience.

The Return*.....A+

The Motorcycle Diaries*(DVD).....A-/B+

Blue in Green*.....A-

Had the privilege of watching a DVD of the new experimental film from the Unica Collaborative. It is a strong collaboration, largely improvisational, with a large cast of completely convincing characters. Watch for opportunities to see this film as the word spreads.

Vera Drake*.....B+

The Bourne Supremacy (DVD).....A-

Even better the second time. Performances, editing, and soundtrack are all exceptional. I think I like this film every bit as much as Spider-man 2. It's competing with the X-Men franchise as the strongest-running franchise going.

The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King: Extended Edition*.....A-

Finding Neverland*.....A-

Hotel Rwanda*.....A-

The Terminal (on DVD) .....C+

Ocean's Twelve*.....B

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou*.....B+

In Good Company*.....B-

The Aviator*.....A-

NOVEMBER

A Love Song for Bobby Long*.....B-

Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave - and - The Wrong Trousers (VHS) .... B+

A Very Long Engagement*.....B

I Am David*.....C+

Sideways*.....A-

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster* (VHS) .....B+

House of Flying Daggers (The Lovers)*.....B+

Like Hero, it's visually magnificent, breathtaking, awe-inspiring. Unlike

Hero, there is not even a hint of love for totalitarianism here; quite the

opposite. It has one plot twist that made me cheer out loud with joy (as I had

desperately hoped that twist was coming.) But then it followed that with another

twist that robbed me of that joy and left me furious with the storytellers. And then

yet ANOTHER twist came along that showed me the film wasn't going to end up

celebrating love at all, but rather bemoaning just how it tears people apart. Love

being defined, of course, as "I will get what I want, at all costs."

Signs (DVD).....B+

Before Sunset (second viewing, DVD).....A

The Incredibles(second viewing.....A) (Better the second time.)

Close Your Eyes* (DVD).....B

The Incredibles*.....A-

OCTOBER

The Polar Express*.....B

Before Sunrise (DVD).....A

Ray*.....B+

Woman, Thou Art Loosed*.....B+

Primer*.....B+/A-

Spin*.....C+

Grosse Pointe Blank (revisiting an old favorite).....B+

Star Wars: A New Hope (DVD, with commentary)

Shall We Dance?* (2004 remake).....B/B-

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (new DVD edition).....A+

Star Wars: A New Hope (new DVD edition).....A

SEPTEMBER

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (second viewing, DVD).....A

Northfork* (DVD).....B+

I Heart Huckabees*.....B-

Dogville (third viewing).....A-

My Girl Friday*.....B

Time of the Wolf*.....A

An intensely absorbing film that challenges us

aesthetically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.

(Recommended with strong cautions due to the graphic onscreen slaying of

a horse.)

Hannah and Her Sisters .....A

The Thin Man*.....B+

Garden State*.....C+

OT:Our Town* (DVD).....A-

THX 1138 - Special Edition* .....B-

AUGUST

Vanity Fair*.....C+

Lost in La Mancha .....(second viewing, DVD) B+

Hero (third viewing, big screen).....A

We Don't Live Here Anymore*.....C+

Lantana (second viewing, DVD).....A-

Mean Creek (second viewing)... B+/A-

The Fifth Element (fifth viewing, DVD)..... B

Hero (second viewing, DVD).....A

Down with Love (second viewing, DVD) B+

Collateral*.....B+

* = first time. + = cinema viewing.

January 2004:

+ LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING (3rd time)

* I CAPTURE THE CASTLE

*+ HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG

* THE HULK. So glad we didn't spend an evening out and buy tickets, etc.

PAT AND MIKE.

KING OF HEARTS (Roi des Coeurs)

* MUMFORD-- not as funny as I'd been led to expect

MATEWAN-- Still one of John Sayles's best

* ANCHORESS--1993.

* CHILDREN OF HEAVEN

* GREENFINGERS-- Likeable, but no surprises.

February

* ASOKA (1998)-- 3 hours of Bollywood historical melodrama, punctuated by 80's MTV-style musical numbers. War and religious bigotry--bad! Peace and love--good!.

BREAKDOWN-- Kurt Russell takes vengeance on redneck baddies who kidnap his wife and hold her for ransom. Extreme violence, and poor Kathleen Quinlan has thankless victim role. No grace, no hope, no humor..

* SPELLBOUND

PAPILLON

March

* MATCHSTICK MEN

* SCHOOL OF ROCK

+* THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST

RAMBLING ROSE--It had been years since I saw this in the theater, and it seems rather pretentious now. Director Coolidge's commentary is interesting. Diane Ladd, Laura Dern, and Robert Duvall are all fine. Lukas Hass shows some promise.

UNFORGIVEN

+* HIDALGO

* GANGS OF NEW YORK

LE RETOUR DE MARTIN GUERRE--one of my all-time favorites

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER--the movie that started it all

+* THE RECKONING

* THE TUXEDO

April

* THE WINSLOW BOY

HORATIO HORNBLOWER: THE DUEL

HORATION HORNBLOWER: THE FIRE SHIPS

* SHATTERED GLASS--A fascinating character study in virtue and evil as "an infinite capacity for self-deception," as M. Scott Peck defined it.

+ THE LADYKILLERS (2004)

THE LADYKILLERS (1955)

THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY--such a matter-of-fact caper flick. The Victorian period details are fascinating, but I prefer my black comedy a little blacker, thanks.

May

* KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER--beautifully done; as far as I recall, reasonably faithful to the book and remarkably representative of medieval Christian world-view. Period details are gorgeous. Kristin's parents are a wonderful study of a medieval marriage. DVD interview with writer/director Liv Ullmann is an interesting extra.

* TIMELINE

* BIG FISH

TOPSY-TURVY--Netflix had this as "out of print" and "long wait," so I went ahead and bought it. Well worth owning, IMO, for the gorgeously reproduced G&S numbers and the meticulous detailing of late-Victorian daily life at its best and worst. The peculiar disjunction between Sullivan's muscial aspirations and his all-too-lusty personal life; the light comedy of Gilbert's libretti and the tragedy of his family life--much to ponder for all artists in these two, and in the brief glimpses of the actors' lives as well.

* PAPER WEDDING (1990)--Solemn Quebecois version of Green Card, starring Genevieve Bujold. Almost made me want to apologize to Ted Baehr for putting down his contempt for French movies, but I believe this is an exception.

* THE LAST SAMURAI--Ken Watanabe should have won Best Actor, but IMO, the real Last Samurai movie is still Ghost Dog.

*+ RAISING HELEN--mostly harmless.

June

* MANSFIELD PARK

* THE PRICE OF MILK--that was fun.

* COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE

THE LAVENDER HILL MOB--the in-laws remembered seeing this classic Guinness performance in the theater when it was released in 1961-ish.

July

* TO END ALL WARS

* A MIGHTY WIND

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN

THE 5000 FINGERS OF DR. T-- I'm sure this was ground-breaking stuff in the 50's. Now it seems stale and creaky, and why shouldn't a boy learn to play the piano? As a live-action Dr. Seuss movie, its main advantage over the revolting "Cat in the Hat" is that--well--it's not actually repellent.

+* SPIDERMAN 2

THE MISSION-- Not having seen this film since it was in theaters in the mid-80s, I noticed a couple of details in the ending that seemed more hopeful than I remembered. Director Joffe's commentary well worth a listen, too, highlighting the parallels between his role working with the real Indians who portray the Guarani, and the role of the 18th c. archbishop who held their lives in his hands.

+* KING ARTHUR-- Amazingly, still better than First Knight, but so many things wrong with this pompous, pseudo-historicization. Still waiting for the definitive Arthurian film. Until then, MP&tHG rules.

*SOLOMON AND GAENOR-- Deserves to be better known.

*SOLARIS (dir. Steven Soderbergh)-- Made me wish I'd either read the original story or seen the Tarkovsky film, or both.

*PARADISE ROAD-- A good companion piece for "To End All Wars," focused on experiences of women in a Japanese POW camp.

*SHANGHAI KNIGHTS-- Good, silly fun, but not as good as Shanghai Noon.

*LOVE ACTUALLY-- Liked it; didn't love it (except Laura Linney's part). Upon viewing the deleted scenes, felt all of them had been left out to very good effect. Why in the world was the little boy asked to provide commentary on a film he wasn't old enough to see? The other actors commented on it, and indeed, he had very little to say.

*MOSTLY MARTHA-- Off-beat story about food & love. Despite the subtitles, DH stayed awake.

August

+* THE VILLAGE

+* DE-LOVELY

* HEART OF LIGHT-- Deserves to be better known. Should be nominee for 100 Spiritual Films.

* ITALIAN FOR BEGINNERS-- Should be nominee for 100 Spiritual Films.

* YEH DILLAGI-- Sabrina goes Bollywood!

+* PRINCESS DIARIES 2: ROYAL ENGAGEMENT

* YI YI

September

* MAUVAISE GRAINE-- Billy Wilder directs French version of "Gone in 60 Seconds"--only since it's 1935-ish, the car thieves are gone in 2 or 3 minutes and have hearts of gold: it's also a prodigal son tale.

THINGS CHANGE-- Don Ameche & Joe Mantegna are a joy in this little David Mamet film about honor and friendship in unexpected places.

MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN-- Still a classic.

+* SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW

* MEAN GIRLS-- Funny and pointed--satire at its best. Plus, TCK angle. Commentaries & Queen Bees & Wannabes author interview also worthwhile.

KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER-- Still excellent--definitely belongs in the A&F 100.

October

* LARA CROFT, TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE-- Amazingly boring, for an action adventure movie. No surprises at all.

+* THE FORGOTTEN-- Forgettable.

* LADY JANE--Mostly remarkable for a stellar cast, including a very young Helena Bonham Carter as Jane, Patrick Stewart, John Wood, and Michael Hordern. Overly earnest political commentary. I gave up 2/3 through it, and I usually love historical drama.

* VAN HELSING-- Attractive, yet deadly.

* THE TERMINAL

* MY MOTHER'S CASTLE

November

* JERSEY GIRL-- The soft, gooey heart of Kevin Smith, with extra four-letter words to prove he's still Kevin Smith. DVD extras are fun.

* MY FATHER'S GLORY-- Should actually precede My Mother's Castle.

* THE WHOLE TEN YARDS

* TRIXIE-- Emily Watson does comedy!

+* THE INCREDIBLES-- Incredible!

* SHREK 2

THE RECKONING

December

+ NATIONAL TREASURE

* PETER PAN (dir. P.J. Hogan)

+* FINDING NEVERLAND

* LUTHER

* LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE

* I, ROBOT

* LUTHER

* THE QUIET AMERICAN

+* LEMONY SNICKET'S A SEQUENCE OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS

* RETURN OF THE KING-EE

+* THE AVIATOR

I'll try putting some ratings in this time, though

1) I'm not practiced at this sort of thing and

Okay, so I'm coming into this a little late, which is why I'm starting from the 12th. But I swear I saw other movies in January! smile.gif

1/12 - "Twilight Samurai" - If one good thing comes out of "The Last Samurai", I hope it's that people track down samurai movie like this one. Hope to get a full review of this on my site, but absolutely wonderful.

1/17 - "Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King" - My 3rd viewing. The things that bug me stand out even more, and the things I love resonate just as deeply as the first time. Also, went out to dinner after the movie with a bunch of co-workers and got to spend 1 1/2 hours explaining Tolkien's mythology/theology. I felt downright evangelical... smile.gif

1/17 - "Ong-Bak"

1/19 - "Needing You" - Fairly enjoyable HK romantic comedy with some really good chemistry Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng. Still pretty contrived, but nowhere near as groan-inducing as many HK dramas.

1/19 - "Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone" - My 1st viewing. Overall, very enjoyable but also slightly underwhelming (I think I've been spoiled by the LOTR films), and also a bit meandering at times. Can't wait to see the second one, though.

1/21 - "Changing Lanes" - 1st time. Enjoyed it quite a bit, though I think the film could've been even more powerful had the ending not been so neat and tidy.

1/23 - "Bubba Ho-Tep" - Easily the best "Elvis Presley teams up with a black guy who thinks he's JFK to battle a soul-sucking mummy in a Texas rest home" movie I've ever seen, and some of the most fun I've had at a theatre in a long time.

1/24 - "Big Fish" - Second viewing.

1/25 - "Twilight Samurai" - Third viewing, and just as enjoyable as ever.

1/26 - "George Washington" - Very impressive. The scene between the little girl and older black boy, as they ponder running way, just killed me.

1/27 - "Last Exile, Volume 2" - Easily my fave anime series right now. Fans of Miyazaki's "Castle In The Sky" might want to check this out.

1/28 - "Tears Of The Black Tiger" - A cross between a spaghetti western and a cowboy serial from the 1940s that looks like it was filmed by Seijin Suzuki. Oh yeah, and it's from Thailand.

1/30 - "Bubba Ho-Tep" - Second viewing.

1/31 - "Bubba Ho-Tep" - Third viewing. I'm a dork.

2/5 - "The Emperor's New Groove" - 1st viewing

2/7 - "O Brother Where Art Thou?"

2/9 - "The Man In The White Suit" - Not my fave Alec Guinness film, but not bad.

2/11 - "Battle Royale 2" - I loved the first film, but this was a horrible, horrible disappointment. Absolute dreck.

2/11 - "The Endurance" - Fascinating documentary about Sir Earnest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition - however, it feels like the film barely scratches the surface of this amazing tale.

2/14 - "Haibane Renmei, Vol. 3" - Along with "Last Exile", this is shaping up to be one of the more intriguing anime series I've seen in awhile.

2/15 - "Easy Rider" - Believe it or not, but I watched this for a project at work.

2/15 - "Intolerable Cruelty" - Second viewing, and fun just to watch my friends' reactions when they realized this wouldn't be your normal romantic comedy.

2/16 - "Knightriders" - Really laughably bad movie by George Romero about a Renaisscane Fair-type troupe that reenacts knightly jousts on motorcycles. Stars Ed Harris!

2/16 - "Hawg Wild In Sturgis" - Really bad documentary/travel video about Sturgis. Watched for work, believe it or not.

2/17 - "The Princess Bride" - 'Nuff said.

2/17 - "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance" - South Korean noir that might be one of the most cold and clinical depictions of human depravity I've ever seen.

2/18 - "Heaven" - After the lackluster "Princess And The Warrior", I had some doubts about Tykwer. Not so after this movie. Absolutely beautiful and haunting film.

2/21 - "The Final Alliance" - David Hasselhoff + mullett + biker gang + trained puma = one of the greatest movies MST3K never touched.

2/22 - "Girl With A Pearl Earring" - Lovely film, both in terms of the visuals (those landscape shots - wow!) and Scarlett Johansson's performance. Plot-wise, I found it bit lacking and scanty though, especially in the romantic subplot involving the butcher's boy.

2/25 - "The Day The Earth Stood Still" - Wow, this remastered version is beautiful. Totally deserves its classic status.

2/27 - "Triplets Of Belleville" - Some very hilarious parts (like the dog), but unfortunately, many of the best gags were used far too often and for far too long (like the dog).

2/28 - "Aguirre, The Wrath Of God"

2/28 - "Shaolin Soccer" - I long to see this in the theatre. Curse you Miramax!

2/29 - "Hero" - See above, only moreso.

3/3 - "The Passion Of The Christ"

3/7 - "The Happiness Of The Katakuris" - About a dysfunctional Japanese family who runs an inn where all of the guests die and must band together to "hide the evidence" - and it's a musical. Incredibly uneven in parts, but other parts are sheer genius (such as the claymation action sequences).

3/9 - "Whale Rider" - 1st viewing

3/14 - "The Wind Will Carry Us" - 1st viewing

3/14 - "Roningai" - 1st viewing

3/15 - "The Fog Of War" - Don't know if "enjoyed" is the right term, but I liked this one quite a bit. I found McNamara to be a completely intriguing person. I just wish my friends and I hadn't seen the late showing so we could've discussed it over some dinner.

3/20 - "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" - Absolutely loved it. Nothing in Carrey's, Kaufman's, or Gondry's work had prepared me for how enamored I'd be of this film.

3/21 - "The Passion Of The Christ" - 2nd viewing. Now that I knew what to expect, I found the film quite a bit more impactful.

3/21 - "Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets" - I think I enjoyed the 1st one more. Even though it runs over 2 1/2 hours, a lot of plot and story felt missing, especially seeing as how I haven't read the book. Still very much looking forward to the 3rd one, though.

3/23 - "Wit" - Heartwrenching, and Emma Thompson is absolutely wonderful. Love the John Donne angle.

3/24 - "The Circle"
