Top 5 Movies of 2007

Here they are, the much anticipated, often disputed, never refuted, authoritatively spew ted - Watch It top 5 movies of 2007.

5) The Bourne Ultimatum


This was just a great all around action movie. Smart and intense with a fast pace and an entertaining storyline. Even the acting and writing were alright. Full Review

4) Into the Wild


It would be difficult to not be intrigued by the story of Into the Wild. This movie is beautifully shot and well executed in every way. Full Review

3) Fugitive Pieces


A haunting tale that nobody should miss if you have the good fortune of being within driving distance of a theatre that will play it. Look for Fugitive Pieces in a slightly less limited release in the spring. Full Review

2) American Gangster


American Gangster is not being universally loved, but for me it was almost perfect. I don't think I've ever seen Denzel Washington better. Full Review

1) The Darjeeling Limited


The Darjeeling Limited is another one that is getting mixed reviews but not from me. This movie hit on every emotion in existence and may be Wes Anderson's best movie to date. Full Review

I love Anderson's movies, and enjoyed Darjeeling, but was still let down with it. Who knows - maybe on repeat viewings it will get better. Then again, maybe my expectations were just too high. But it will be hard for anything he puts out to top Rushmore or Tenenbaums in my book.

thanks for the comment soundtrack, though Spiderman 3 shouldn't be on any list that doesn't start with "worst of..." in my opinion.
