    Since the year is coming to a close we may as well rate our top 5 movies released this year.

    I actually don't have a top 5 right now, I will go with my top 2 for the moment. Until I can remember more.

    1. Simpsons movie. I loved it.

    2. Die Hard 4.

    4) alpha dog
    5) shooter/zodiac. call it a tie here.
    honorable mention
    bourne ultimatum, superbad, blades of glory, knocked up, halloween
    *actually after rethinking it any of the honorable mentions could move into the top 5 no problem. superbad should be up there anyway.

    5. Grindhouse (B+)
    6. Michael Clayton (B+)
    7. Superbad (B+)

    I saw a screening of it. I'll prob see it in wide-release, cause Daniel Day Lewis gives a jaw-dropping performance.

    I'm not sure I've seen five films this year.

    Lemme see...

    Transformers
    Live Free or Die Hard
    Resident Evil: Apocalypse

    The only other I remember is actually from last Christmas, when Matt Damon starred as a coathanger in "The Good Shepherd". :hang: :hang:
    Words cannot describe how bad that was.
    And yes, I am capable of enjoying a character study.
