Movies I Watched - 2005

Posted as a public service announcement, so the FBI doesn't have to request the list from Netflix. Posted from most recent, to least recent. And yes, there are 129 of them for 2005 alone and they are only the things we watched on Netflix, not in the theater and not via pay per view (the clean kind) and not on IFC.

Favorites: Unforgivable Blackness (absolutely enthralling - just amazing), Motorcycle Diaries, Fitzcarraldo, Kinsey, Gunner Palace, Tae Guk Gi, Iron Jawed Angels, Persona, Naussica of the Valley of the Wind, The Woodsman, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Five Obstructions, Touching the Void. Oldboy and Calamari Wrestler get props for being "memorable".

Not on the list, but watched this year and absolutely loved: Sarah Silverman's "Jesus is Magic".

Hated: Elmopalooza (really, Eryn concurs), Versus, Anchorman, Duplex, Boo the Movie,Vampires Out for Blood, The Horror Within, Darkness, Alone in the Dark, Orgazmo, The Brown Bunny, Closer. Those were the out and out one-star flops at first glance - there were an amazing number of twos. We'll watch anything, but it'll get a bad rating if it deserves it.

Not on the list, but watched this year and absolutely loathed: "The Cave".

Jim Carrey was in Tae Guk Gi? Was he on the side of the North or South?
