100movies1year progress

A Beautiful Mind (7/10) - This one surprised me, I've heard some pretty negative things about this film but I felt it was enjoyable enough.
Hannibal Rising (8/10) - An impressive prequel to the series. I was impressed especially with Gaspard Ulliel's portrayal of young Hannibal.
The Sentinel (6/10) - A pretty dull film with Kiefer Sutherland being the only real highlight.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (5/10) - Definitely not as good as its predecesser, it was a nice surprise to see Richard Schiff (The West Wing) though (even if he does get eaten rather gruesomely)
Johnny English (6/10) - Funny in places, doubt it would hold up to multiple viewings though
Million Dollar Baby (9/10) - I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The acting was pretty superb across the board but I have to single out Morgan Freeman who was brilliant as always.
The Crow (8/10) - This film succeeds mainly in it's direction. I loved how highly stylised it was and the brilliant gothic feel it had.
Lost In Translation (6/10) - I think this film was a case of a lot of style but not enough substance. There were some really beautiful shots but I don't think the plot was engaging enough.
The Descent (8/10) - This was an expertly executed horror film. I loved it's style and felt that each of the characters had some really interesting flaws that the situation was able exploit. I did however have a slight problem with the ending though. I think it would have been best left with her out of the cave but having to cope with what she had done inside rather than her remaining there and waiting for almost certain death.
Hot Fuzz (8/10) - Well, what can I say. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright combine once again to give us another brilliant subversive comedy in the same vein as Shaun Of The Dead but at the same time totally different. There were laughs throughout the whole thing and the acting was perfect across the board!
Final Destination (6/10) - This wasn't as scary as I expected it to be. There was plenty of tension throughout but certainly not one of my favourite horror movies.
8 Mile (7/10) - A fairly solid film but there wasn't any outstanding aspects of it for me. Kim Basinger put in a much better performance than she did in The Sentinal, a film I watched earlier in my challenge.
Unbreakable (8/10) - I thought this was well acted and directed and was a very interesting take on the established superhero genre with a signiture M. Night Shymalan twist. Certainly one of his best.
Memento (8/10) - A unique and clever idea for a film and I think it was pulled off very well even if it is slightly hard to follow at times.
Harvard Man (6/10) - I wasn't too sure what to make of 'Harvard Man'. Good in parts, weird in others. I can't really say anything particularly negative about it but at the same time there wasn't really any parts of it that stood out for me.
The Terminal (8/10) - I was pleasantly surprised by 'The Terminal'. My expectations weren't especially high before hand but overall, I found it entertaining.
The Exorcist (7/10) - I didn't find 'The Exorcist' as scary as expected. A possible reason for this may be that it has been spoofed to death and by the time I came to watch it, the parts that were supposed to be scary just weren't. It was well acted and directed though so I have to give it props for that.
Armageddon (5/10) - Nothing special about this film in my opinion. It started off well but then just became another disaster movie.
Fight Club (8/10) - A brilliant satire of modern western society.
Trainspotting (9/10) - I really enjoyed this one. Ewan McGregor was impressive, I think Danny Boyle did a good job of directing it (especially the trippy scenes) and it was really fun to watch.
The Bourne Identity (7/10) - Not as impressive as I was expecting it to be. Good enough to make me want to see the second.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (9/10) - A brilliantly postmodern funny action film. There was just so much in this film and I think it was pulled off perfectly.
Mean Girls (8/10) - A very funny film that also had a good plot and a great cast.
Fracture (7/10) - A fairly predictible thriller but with great acting from Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling.
Spider-Man 3 (8/10) - I think this was the best of the 3. Great depth and a lot of nice links to Peter's past. Had a bit of a low point mid way through but other than that it was hugely enjoyable
The Constant Gardener (8/10) - A nice follow up to City of God by Fernando Meirelles. A really good plot with some nice acting from Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz
Pulp Fiction (9/10) - Tarantino at his very best. Add that to a brilliant cast and you get a hugely enjoyable movie.
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (8/10) - Started slowly but ultimately, an improvement on the second film and close to the quality of the first.
The Godfather (9/10) - Hugely enjoyable film with brilliant performances accross the board.
Office Space (8/10) - A great ensemble cast make this film a very enjoyable experience. Not a particularly complicated plot but that isn't really an issue because the representation of the downtrodden masses in everyday offices is perfect.
Lucky Number Slevin (6/10) - A fun film with a clever twist at the end.
Domino (7/10) - An entertaining biopic with a great performance from Keira Knightley. I feel that it suffered in the end from too many twists and turns and a rather convuluted narrative.
The Lake House (6/10) - A good premise with some nice acting from Bullock and Reeves but was slightly slow getting to its rather inevitable conclusion.
Mission Impossible III (7/10) - I have to say, this surprised me. After a rather disappointing sequel to the brilliant original movie, this was closer to the level of the first one. There were also some nice noticible touches from director JJ Abrams.
