After being totally blown away by WALK THE LINE, I was wondering what YOU consider the best movie you've seen this year.
I cant say enough good things about this movie, it was brilliant.

So, what would your guys pick be?

Considering I haven't seen all the movies I want to, it's a three-way tie at the moment, Batman Begins, MirrorMask, and Jarhead. If we include movies I saw on DVD this year then Life Acquatic and Garden State. Just in the theaters... Right now I am gonna say Jarhead was the best.

As an aside the ones I still wanna see would be: Crash, Walk the Line, Goodnight and Good Luck, Capote... then Harry Potter, Narnia, King Kong, and Aeon Flux.

Good Night and Good Luck was excellent, best I've seen this year by a good margin.

Walk the Line, absolutely. Brilliant movie. I still haven't seen Harry Potter or Jarhead, although I may not bother with Jarhead. I love the book, but it sounds like the movie is just kind of blah. Movie I'm most looking forward to: Narnia. I read those books relentlessly when I was a kid.

Haven't seen Wedding Crashers, Harry Potter or King Kong yet, so my favorites so far are a tie between "Star Wars III", "War Of The Worlds" and "Charlie And The Chocolate Factory" (with "The Longest Yard" as a close runner-up).

I ran out and bought "Charlie And The Chocolate Factory" on dvd for myself and the family, so I guess maybe for that reason it edges out the rest of my top favorites.

Wow...I just counted that I've seen four movies this years in theatres (Spanglish, Batman Begins, Fantastic Four, Star Wars III)...and I really can't count Spanglish because it was technically on New Years Eve last year.

BUT...I'd have to say the best of the four was Star Wars III.

Next Sunday I'm planning on seeing Harry Potter IV.

Granted, I haven't seen very many movies this year but of the few that I've seen I'll go with Batman Begins with Hustle & Flow is a close second.

I saw Lawrence of Arabia for the first time (Widescreen High Definition on In Demand for Comcast). That easily takes it for me. I also saw Team America for the first time. For new movies... don't see many so Star Wars III has to be it.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou was excellent.

And I just watched "He Died With a Felafel in his Hand" the other night. Loved it.

Tie: Batman Begins and Serenity.

Honorable Mention: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

If you had asked me in May, I would have said Revenge of the Sith. It's just that everything I've seen since has eclipsed it.

In theatres, probably Sin City.

On DVD, I'd never seen Quiz Show before and I thought it was pretty great.

I saw "Just Friends" this past weekend, and it is pretty good.

I think the last two movies before that one was "The Longest Yard" and then before that "Walking Tall".

I don't get out much...
