King Kong

Peter Jackson marvellously recaptured New York's 1933 spirit as his gigantic ape roared through the screen in the mega-est of all films, King Kong.

Too big for multiplexes, this is one of the most memorable Hollywood films of recent times.

Batman Begins

Fans around the world embraced the shadowy comeback of the caped crusader. Christopher Nolan's unconventional version, Batman Begins, was a far cry from the films so far, and applauded across the world.

We might love the classic Batmobile, but the Memento director has achieved serious, undeniable Bat-cult status.

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

When this remake was announced, everyone had reservations. After all, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory happens to be one of the best-loved children's films of all time, and it was unthinkable to imagine anyone other than the brilliant Gene Wilder playing the title role.

But then it was Tim Burton. And it was Johnny Depp. Reinvention never tasted this good.

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

Insatiable J K Rowling fans were finally pleased with a motion picture adaptation, and what better time than the installment where Harry, The Boy Who Lived, finally duels with The One Who Must Not Be Named.

Daniel Radcliffe is growing up fast; teenage girls around the world aren't complaining.

Sin City

Making Gotham look like Pleasantville in comparison, Sin City is a dark and lethal place, populated by the seediest of characters just wanting to burst into ultraviolence.

Robert Rodriguez defiantly shared directing credit with writer Frank Miller to create an incredibly faithful adaptation of the cult graphic novel. And a startlingly adept ensemble cast shared blue-screen space in a surreal world where almost everything was created digitally.

They are the top movies for this week solid3k, not for the year.

Meanwhile if by 'best movies" you mean most expensive movies that still couldn't lift hollywood out of it's slump, then yep, they take the cake.
King Kong has done terrible at the boxoffice so far. Good yes but it had a massive budget, it will be hard to make that much of a profit.

The only movie that has made any good impression on me this year is Sin City. That movie just blew me away and unfortunately nothing else this year has made the same impact :( Hopefully next year will bring better movies for the MAC to enjoy. I'm looking forward to seeing Match Point ( at last, a movie with Scarlett ) :bounce: and I'm also really looking forward to seeing Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette.

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory sucked so badly. It was terrible. The original was so much better.

I can't really vote on this coz I have only seen one of those and I thought that it was one of the worst ever made.... Such a waste of time that I fell asleep whilst "watching" it at the cinema!

Crash

Wedding Crashers

Munich

40 Year Old Virgin

tie: Star Wars "III", Match Point, Sin City, The Constant Gardener, Hustle and Flow (all of these were "not great" but very entertaining flicks).

I agree. I thought it sucked too. What's the big deal?

Best movie I saw of 2005 was The Chronicles of Narnia. I also enjoyed Wedding Crashers and Red-Eye... probably cause of Rachel though!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was alright but... I wouldn't say it was "good".

King Kong was boring.

Depp was just :tape: The songs sung by the Umpa Lumpa's were nothing like the classic originals, that stuck in your head for days. :lol:

The ending was also crap. I liked it when Charlie had to give the gum back to take over the factory. :p

Narnia! Ok it may not be absolute perfection in cinema terms but I love it! :D

I havn't seen Charlie and the Choco Factory (namely cos I love the original and think I'll be biased towards hating the new one). Harry Potter is great entertainment but the book is better, and should/must be read by all! :)
Sin City was amazing, plain and simple. Batman Begins was ok but nothing special in my opinion, the 1st Batman film with Jack Nicholson as the Joker is leagues ahead of this one. And I havn't seen King Kong cos I can't be bothered, but also cos it's just a story that's never appealed to me.

Out of those HP for sure. I loved it.

Haven't seen King Kong yet.

Charlie & TCF was ok quite surreal but good.

Unless I am mistaken, Great Britain was in control of Singapore by 1819. Didn't Kong take place in the '30's?

I liked Crash and Geisha. Charlie and the Chocolate factory was a bust.
Most American made movies suck ass and don't do anything to my intellect.



I am looking forward to Casanova and Marie Antoinette and the film with Judi Dench about Nudity and the stage. I am not sure what it is called but anything with Dench has GOT to be good quality.
