Well, the votes have all been tabulated, and we're ready to roll out the collective list of the best and worst 2004 had to offer according to the staff here at MCFTR. Since you've all been treated to the formalities already, we won't waste any more time with them. On to the lists!

MCFTR'S BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR:

1. KILL BILL VOL. 2
This one wasn't close. Quentin Tarantino's fifth film (which is really half of his fourth film) wound up on everyone's best-of list and cemented itself in the top spot this year. It's a shame that the Academy will completely ignore this one.

2. SHAUN OF THE DEAD
Had everyone here seen this one, it may have wound up in the top spot. This horror comedy got high marks from everyone who saw it, though, and firmly winds up near the top of the list.


3. THE INCREDIBLES
Another one universally praised by all who saw it, Disney's ode to superhero families muscled its way into the top three by providing a classic story and the amazing touch that only Pixar can provide.


4. SPIDER-MAN 2
Despite winding up on one reviewer's worst-of-the-year list, the sequel to arguably the best comic book movie before it still wound up slinging its web all the way to the upper echelon.


5. ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND
Although only seen by three of our staff, this wound up landing so close to the tops of those lists that it still made the top five. Because it came out so early in the year, the Academy will probably forget it, but we made sure not to.

6. TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE
Trey Parker and Matt Stone's hilarious poke at both sides of the political spectrum wound up winning lots of hearts here at MCFTR, despite the fact that the performances were a bit wooden.


7. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN
Considered by many to be the best of the series, this was given high marks here at MCFTR this year and worked its magic to secure it a spot in the top ten.


8. HELLBOY
While Spidey and the Incredibles took a look at the fun and fantastic look at superheroes, this highly praised flick showed the darker side of the genre.


9. THE AVIATOR
Martin Scorcese's biography of Howard Hughes wound up near the top of the list for those who actually saw it, and for good reason.



10. HAROLD & KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE
Had this been seen by more of the staff, it would have likely wound up a lot higher. This clever comedy wound up being the surprise of the year.



Other films that MCFTR praised this year: BEFORE SUNSET, ANCHORMAN, SIDEWAYS, CLOSER, FINDING NEVERLAND, DAWN OF THE DEAD, KINSEY, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK.


MCFTR'S WORST FILMS OF THE YEAR:

1. THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW
Apparently, just about everyone in the nation whose name was not Al Gore hated this film, although that didn't stop it from being one of the biggest hits of the year.


2. VAN HELSING
The old Universal monsters couldn't help this Universal Monstrosity. Those who were brave enough to see this stinker made sure to give it the ol' stake through the heart.


3. SECRET WINDOW
Put Johnny Depp and John Turturro together, and you'd expect great things. But apparently, that's not the case here. This was universally panned by the critics at MCFTR.


4. YOU GOT SERVED
Why several people on the staff actually saw this is a mystery altogether, but those that did made sure to give it an old fashioned dissin'.


5. THE STEPFORD WIVES
Frank Oz should be ashamed of himself for this pitiful remake. There was not a single redeeming feature to be found in this pile of dung, outside of maybe Christopher Walken.



Other films that MCFTR panned this year: ALEXANDER, JERSEY GIRL, IN GOOD COMPANY, ENVY, THE VILLAGE, STARSKY AND HUTCH, TAKING LIVES, GARFIELD, TROY, CLUB DREAD.


MCFTR'S MOST DISAGREED-UPON FILM OF THE YEAR:

DODGEBALL
Half of the staff seemed to love this movie. The other half seemed to hate it. When the scores averaged out, this stood right at the even mark, leaving it far from either list. See this one at your own risk.
