2005 Best and Worst Films of the Year List

Originally posted on December 21, 2005

It’s that time of the year to send out my top 10 best and 5 worst films of the year list to those of you who care about what films, in my humble opinion, I believed were the best and worst of the year. In 2005, I saw 94 films in the theater and watched 19 films on DVD. That is approximately 40-50 less films in the theater than I see in an average year so I guess the box office slump hit me personally this year too. My excuse? Well, I saw all of the films that I wanted to see. So sadly, there wasn’t a great deal of exciting films in 2005 but there were some amazing showings of revival films and film series. Here’s hoping 2006 bring us some great films. Following are my lists!
