I'm a little behind and totally forgot that these were out (and you can also tell I missed the actual TV as well) but seeing the Oscars/Razzies threads reminded me that I didn't put out the annual BESTS and WORSTS from these two yokels - I mean, fine judges of cinema.

The worsts are all pretty accurate. The only 'best' choices I really disagree with are Munich (would've been a lot better if 30 minutes shorter) and King Kong, which was good but not great. Ebert's list has gotten less relevant since he basically admitted that after #1, a lot of his movies are pretty interchangable with the #11-25 picks.

The Legend of Zorro was one of the most disappointing sequels I've ever seen. Not only did they go for SFX on the cheap, but they needlessly changed the heroine from a hot-blooded tomboy to a hearth-bound marm. They gutted that character for cheap conflict. Only Banderas's charm gives the film any interest.

I disagree on "Fantastic Four". While it didn't measure up to other recent superhero movies, I certainly wouldn't call it bad. I thought Chris Evans gave a fun performance and Jessica Alba gave a ...well, ..hot performance. Maybe a sequel would be better with more action and less origin/backstory stuff.

I totally disagree there.

Guess I feel bad. Of all the movies on the best and worst list, I only saw two - Longest Yard and Fantastic Four. I saw a few other movies (Narnia, Star Wars, Batman, End of the Spear, and a couple I am sure I am forgetting. Certainly none of the chick-flick fare that is always being nominated for awards.

Longest Yard must have been terrible. I saw it twice (the second for free, but whatever). Batman - well, more than twice. (Does anyone know when it comes out?) And I also dug the FF. And Katie Holmes - worst Actress? Not if you saw the final scene in Batman. Yum.

Really? I missed that? Shows how much I care about the videos in general. I JUST found out the other day that they finally released the first three star wars movies on DVD.

Good - I needed to spend some money, maybe it's down off the $20 plus dollar initial offerings.

Thanks.

(I did know FF was out... - I saw that at Wallyworld - wonder why I didn't see Batman - maybe cause it's not as brightly colored)

I can still hear Chris Berman's screaming from the climactic final game ringing in my ears.

I actually agree with most of their lists (although they need more love for Capote), as this was a pretty unspectacular year for movies for the most part; I consider Ebert's astounding review/destruction of Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo (rogerebert.suntimes.com) to be one of my movie highlights of 2005.

I must have missed it the first time around but I can not beleive Ebert listed Constantine as one of the worst movies of the year. Certainly, there had to be plenty of worse movies than this.

Interesting that Ebert has four comic-book movies on his worst list, and leaves out "Batman Begins" on his best list (they did give that one a good review, right?) ...

That Evil Dead story's died a death since it was first announced over a year ago. What with Raimi being busy with Spider-Man 3 I can't see it being made for the 2006 date listed on there, if at all.

And I can't understand Ebert naming Crash as best movie of the year. Well-acted, sure, but it was cynically manipulative of the audience's emotions and said nothing about racism other than "it exists". It's nowhere near the worst movie of 2005 like some have said, but it's incredibly shallow and weak compared to Munich, Syriana, Me And You, Brokeback Mountain, A History Of Violence and even Jarhead, which doesn't get a look-in on either list.

I think Ebert has quit putting comic book films on his 'best of...' lists ever sense he gave that GLOWING review to RETURN OF THE SWAMP THING.

If there was ever a moment when you thought "Hey, do they ever get paid to give good reviews?", then that was it.

Raimi's only producing the remake. It's still getting done, but it's pushed back due to the 'market glut' of remakes. Expect it around Fall 2007.

Not to mention the fact that he gave it an honorable mention on his "Best Of" list a few weeks ago.

Ok, so it's not exactly the freshest reference, but sue me, I loved the Monster Mifflin opening. Speaking of outdated references, it's a Jumanji tale. And dammit, outdated or not, it was still hilarious. "There was a bank error in my favor.
