Checking it Once…

Checking it Once...

The first snow on the ground in New England means that it’s nearly time for every cinephile’s most favorite, and most pointless, yearly activity: List making! Come 2006, we’ll all look back at whatever public declarations of love we made in the year prior and cringe a little, but that never stops us from stepping up to embarrass ourselves again just a few months later…

I’m usually hugely disorganized in my list-making, so in a year where I felt I saw a bunch of things that caught my eye, I sat down with a list of every film released this year and cobbled together this group to be whittled down over the next few weeks. In no particular order.

The Contenders:

Bad News Bears
Breakfast on Pluto
A History of Violence
Oliver Twist
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
War of the Worlds
In My Country
Look at Me
Pride & Prejudice
Funny HaHa
Kings & Queen
Mysterious Skin
Nobody Knows
The Squid and the Whale
Tropical Malady
The World

Oddballs that might make the cut:

Sky High
Separate Lies
Dear Wendy
Corpse Bride
The Devil’s Rejects
Lord of War
Where the Truth Lies

Haven’t seen:

The New World

#2 on the list of favorite cinephile activities is, of course, carping about other lists, so let the mudslinging commence!
