Best Films of 2002

HONORABLE MENTION: LOTR: The Two Towers, 8 Mile, Equilibrium, S1m0ne, Bloodwork, Panic Room, Punch-Drunk Love, Minority Report, The Bourne Identity, Blue Crush, and Queen of the Damned.

Now, the starting lineup...

10. THE RING - This has to be one of the most scariest movies in a real long time, and was still scary when I saw it a second time.

9. GANGS OF NEW YORK - It's time to stop ripping Leo DiCaprio. Just stop, it's no longer funny. The man can act.

8. MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING - It played for 33+ weeks. That's simply astonishing giving that most movies disappear by the 5th week. It's a nice change of pace for the comedy genre.

7. RESIDENT EVIL - Go ahead, laugh. This movie rocked, no longer can we say that there hasn't been a good movie that's based on a video game.

6. FRAILTY - Welcome to directing, Bill Paxton! This film was downright creepy at times and the acting was always top notch.

5. WE WERE SOLDIERS - This is a great war epic, but that's not why it's up here, it's up here because it doesn't glamorize war. Finally, the truth about war! War is hell.

4. BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE - This is the most the influencial movie I have ever seen, kudos to Michael Moore for having the courage to make this film.

3. THE RULES OF ATTRACTION - What can I say, the movie had some bad-ass editing (props to Sharon Rutter), and really depicted college life well, well at least the colleges that Roger Avary heard of! Seriously, there isn't a dull moment in this flick.

2. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - Spielberg can do anything he wants, and then add Tom Hanks and Leo DiCaprio into the equation. Mind boggling.

and the best film of the year goes to

1. ROAD TO PERDITION - See above remark about Tom Hanks.

now, for the worst, but I don't want to show it unless you really really really want to see it...

4. SPIDER-MAN - What can I say, I was bored.
3. CLOCKSTOPPERS - Johnathon Frakes should stick to Beyond Belief on FOX.
2. INSOMNIA - Why would Robin Williams want his name attached to this garbage? Al Pacino sucks.

and the worst of the year:

1. CHANGING LANES - Bad morals, bad morals, bad morals. I'm sorry, but there isn't a likeable character, hell, that doesn't matter, what matters is that it's a realistic movie, yet both main characters commit real crimes and they just go on with their merry little lives. Gee, so if I get in an accident, and I'm in a hurry, would I just drive away? Would I mess with somebody's credit record? Or if I'm the other guy, would I try to kill the other driver? No, I play by the rules. This movie fucking sucks. It's garbage.

1 comment:

  1. Yep, Changing Lanes was the absolute worst movie I've seen in quite sometime. It was boring...I kept checking the time to see how much longer I had to watch. I was excited to see it but walked out dissapointed and wanting my money back.
