A year in the life of Noel Wood

MY TOP THIRTEEN OF THE YEAR:

1. ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND - Charlie Kaufman, again, proves why I hate him: he's so brilliant that everyone else looks like they suck in comparison.
2. THE AVIATOR - Leonardo Dicaprio puts on the performance of the year. Oh my God, did I really write that?
3. BEFORE SUNSET - Probably the most necessary sequel ever made, although you won't realize it until after you see it.
4. SIDEWAYS - Made me really want a glass of wine.
5. SHAUN OF THE DEAD - It's a comedy. It's a horror flick. It's one of the most clever things you'll ever see.
6. TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE - America: fuck yeah!
7. KILL BILL VOLUME 2 - Better than the first, even better as a whole.
8. SPIDER-MAN 2 - The best comic book movie ever, even if you've never opened a comic book.
9. CLOSER - Great ensemble cast, great dialogue, great movie.
10. THE INCREDIBLES - If you thought Pixar couldn't top FINDING NEMO, think again. Brad Bird follows up the underappreciated IRON GIANT with another masterpiece.
11. HAROLD & KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE - Completely original, hysterically funny.
12. KINSEY - Some great performances in this biographical piece.
13. SUPER SIZE ME - Dear Michael Moore: Please see this film and remember that you used to be this good.

MY GUILTIEST PLEASURE OF THE YEAR:

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR - This was a bad movie. A bad movie that I liked way more than I should have.

FUNNIEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR (NOT LISTED ABOVE):

1. ANCHORMAN
2. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE
3. DODGEBALL
4. MEET THE FOCKERS
5. A DIRTY SHAME

DISAPPOINTMENTS OF THE YEAR:

1. GARDEN STATE - Overhyped? Probably. Way too pretentious for a first film, though, and more shallow than most people would leave you to believe.
2. THE LIFE AQUATIC FEATURING STEVE ZISSOU - Wes Anderson may be better on a bad day than most directors are on their best, but this was by far his weakest film to date.
3. FAHRENHEIT 9/11 - An example of what happens when your emotions get the best of you. Stick to exposing big business, Michael. And congratulations on alienating the moderates and mobilizing the rabid right wing to put your foil back in office for four more years.

MOVIES THAT WERE COMPLETE AND UTTER ASS:

1. THE STEPFORD WIVES - Why, why, why did I willingly drag myself out to see this piece of shit? Frank Oz, wha has happened to you?
2. JERSEY GIRL - Hang it up, Kevin. Really. You hit a wall a long time ago, and it's best to hang on to that one shred of dignity you once had.
3. THE VILLAGE - Mr. Shyalaman, your official membership in the useless hack club has been approved.
