“Okay, now I’ll let you touch me on the inside parts”
Apologies to Thumbsucker, Memoirs of a Geisha, Dark Water, Heights, Reel Paradise, Mrs. Henderson Presents, 9 Songs, The Weather Man, Everything Is Illuminated, and Elizabethtown, but, though borderline worthless, they just didn’t quite make the cut this year. There’s only so much room for mouth-frothing vitriol, and, as with last year, we had to limit ourselves to a tidy eleven titles, each and every one of which affected a Reverse Shot writer in ways not quite so easy to translate into words. Without further ado, we present our 11 Annoyances of 2005, movies that, from the get-go, we wished would just shut the fuck up already. Not that we’re going to take our own advice.
