Let me reflect a moment here . .  .  BEST movies:

SPIDERMAN 3
ELIZABETH THE GOLDEN AGE
PREMONITION
HALLOWEEN
FLYBOYS

(I don't watch a lot of GOOD movies, obviously!)

My pick:  SPIDERMAN 3.  Yeah, it was the weakest of the franchise, but I still liked it a lot!

Worst Movies:

RETURN IN RED
H P LOVECRAFT'S THE TOMB
THE BLOOD SHED
PONY TROUBLE
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: WORLD'S END

My pick:  THE BLOOD SHED.  PONY TROUBLE was horrible (curse you, Brain Damage Films!), but THE BLOOD SHED was truly painful to watch.  I mean awfully, unwatchably, poke your eyes out with a fork BAD!

SPECIAL CATEGORY:

Cannibal Mutant Hillbilly Films!

THE HILLS HAVE EYES II
VACANCY
BLOODLINES
WRONG TURN II
THE BLOOD SHED


Out of these, of course, THE BLOOD SHED is the absolute WORST, and probably WRONG TURN II was the best.  This is fun!  let's hear from others!

Boy, that's a toughie -- I actually saw quite a few movies this year that favorably impressed me --
I'll go with the 2 best, I thought:  The Prestige, and Perfume.  Both films dealt with magic & magical realism, and had elements of high visual beauty.  The scene in The Prestige where David Bowie as Tesla walks out of a cloud of lightning -- well, I could watch that again and again -- one of the best Entrance Scenes in any movie ever.  There is a comparably stunning scene in Perfume when Dustin Hoffman first smells one of the magical formulas made for him by the idio-savant:  The world around him dissolves into a mad array of fruit and flowers of shocking color.  Overwhelming on the big screen --
For laughing, funny-bad, I'd have to say Pumaman, with Donald Plesance.  A hysterical script that sounded like they were making it up as they went along, coupled with the very worst flying effects & generally cheap special effects helped make this one a laugh riot from beginning to end.  Not even The Wild Wild World of Batwoman could compete.

How could I forget THE PRESTIGE and THE ILLUSIONIST!!

DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both of those deserve to be in my top five, although THE PRESTIGE was the better of the two.

Boomstick's Best Of The Barrel from this year:thumbup:

1. 300 - by the ending it's called 0
2. Dragon Wars - Plot-based title (Think snakes) for 2007
3. Grindhouse - my personal college-guy-initiation film
4. Transformers - be happy, it's hella big robots!
5. The Illusionist - I've probably not been more impressed by a plot twist than with this film

The Winner: Transformers!
Ask me how many times a day I skip through the DVD to watch the robot stuff.

As for worst, I generally don't go to see a movie that I don't think I'll like or is already an old idea (spoof sports/singers/college movies) so chances are they were not shown in a theater unless they pulled a dirty trick on me.

1. Stan Lee's Harpies - This is number one because I didn't finish it
2. The Mist - BFM's just don't balance out that ending
3. Atomic Twister - the first "evil weather" movie that tries to fool you
4. Borat - the only movie to ever leave me completely stupefied as to what I thought of it, since you need to have retained the ability to think afterwards to make such a conclusion.
5. Doug's First Movie - I couldn't think of anything else, I just %$^&ing hate that movie.

The Loser: Doug's First Movie
I'd rather watch Borat shoot people in the head before going out to face harpies in an atomic twister than subject what brain cells I have left to that monstrosity.

Conclusion: good movies are awesome and bad movies are awesome but bad movies aren't supposed to be terrible. That makes them terrible movies.

I am going to base this off of movies that I saw for the first time.

Worst:

Either "Weasels Rip My Flesh" or "Zombie Night" (I blame CheezeWhiz for the latter film).

Best:

"Pan's Labyrinth" or "Children of Men."

I liked Jackass.

Can't say much for part 2, as I haven't seen that yet, but I liked the first one.

Ok...maybe not the BEST I've seen this year...but a few I really enjoyed for the first time:
. BOOGIENIGHTS-You know...the porno-biz movie? Especially Burt Reynolds's performance. Great!
.GLEN or GLENDA-First time seeing. I'm torn on this one. An incredible,mind-blowing piece of nonsense-but after the Glen/Glenda sequence,I  couldn't handle anymore,and had to turn it off. Just too much at once. If I had watched it all in one sitting,I'd have gone off the deep end for sure.Still haven't finished it.
.OH!!! STREET FIGHTER!!! with Sonny Chiba! Yeah...saw it for the first time just about a week ago! FANTASTIC!!! Instant classic,in my book! A keeper!  Cheers

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I saw a bunch of movies this year.  The only reason for that was because I was not exercising this year due to injury.  Here is my list of best and worst.

Best:
Apocalypse Now - A really good film all around
Alien
Aliens
Blazing Saddles - Very funny
The Last Dragon - Corny but really good
The Deer Hunter - A timeless classic
Die Hard - Need I say more
Mimi wo sumaseba (Whisper of the Heart) - a good story with some romance added.
Hotaru no haka (Grave of the Fireflies) - one of the few films that I was nearly crying while watching it.
Majo no takkyŻbin (Kiki's Delivery Service) a good hearted touching film.
Glengarry Glen Ross - A truely enjoyable film to watch.

Best Winner:
Grave of the Fireflies and Aliens.  I actually loved all the movies on my best list, but I find these two to really stand out for me.

Worst:
Borat - Watched 20 minutes of the film and refuse to finish it.
Underground Comedy Movie - Awfully.  I would probably only laugh if I was 12 years old and though jokes about farting were still funny
Breakfest at Tiffany's - Just couldn't enjoy it
Pretty in Pink - Stupid.

Worst Winner:

Borat and Underground Comedy Movie. The suck and I refuse to finish them.

I saw some real garbage this year but I also saw a lot of great movies. 

For best:

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters - Number one with a bullet.  If you still haven't seen this documentary, I pity you.  Quite possibly the best underdog story I've seen in years.  It's the Rocky of  retrogaming.  Almost too weird to be true.  If you think watching grown men struggle for supremacy in the arena for top Donkey Kong score of all time couldn't possibly be interesting, you are so very wrong.  I saw this three or four times this year.

No Country For Old Men - The Coen's prove once again that they are the most unpredictable filmmakers in the world by providing near-Hitchcockian suspense in a story about ordinary people who get in way over their heads.  Javier Bardem could possibly be the baddest villain since The Terminator.

Before The Devil Knows You're Dead - An unprecendented bummer about greed and just how badly things can go wrong in the face of desperation.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Ehtan Hawke are awesome.  It leaps around the timeline Pulp Fiction style to establish the happenings and then fills in the gaps.  Just when you think a jewelry store heist can get any more out of hand, it does.

The Prestige - I think this came out late 2006 but I didn't see it until early this year.  A fantastic setting, great acting and a particularly original story about competing magicians made this one of the most compelling weirdo sci-fi movies of the year.  David Bowie as Nicola Tesla put it way over the top.

Grindhouse - Deliberately fast and cheap and one of the weirdest ideas of the year.  It comes as no surprise that it failed miserably since the only people who seemed to get it were people like us.  Average filmgoers were baffled when what they thought was a zombie movie with car chases and lap dances turned out to be two crappy movies punctuated by trailers for movies that don't exist.  Why no one got the joke is a mystery to me but I haven't had that much fun with a movie in a long, long time.

Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon - Horror spoofs don't usually draw me in and if there's one thing I'm tired of, it's the self-referential nature of modern horror movies but this deconstruction of slasher movies was simultaneously original and a loving tribute that didn't get on my nerves.  A great villain and a cool twist at the end.

Hatchet - The other year's best slasher movie.  Billed as an old school slasher in reply to waves of remakes and sequels, it was gleefully violent and featured the year's best kill scenes.  Brought down a notch by an over-hyped, nearly forgettable slasher killer.

The middle of the road:

Death Sentence - Not a bad movie about the cost of revenge.  Though based on Brian Garfield's follow-up novel to Death Wish in name only, it sticks closer to the source material than any of the Death Wish sequels and gets the overall theme right in the end.  There's a sucker punch ending and tons of vicious violence including limbs sheared off by clouds of buckshot.  James Wan has promise for the future but it's a slow road right now if wants to leave me with any kind of lasting impression.  I wonder how The Brave One worked out.

Superbad - So much hype.  Funny but the Citizen Kane of dick jokes?  I don't know about that.

For worst:

Halloween - How anyone, let alone Rob freakin' Zombie can screw up a slasher movie is just beyond me.  Attempts to humanize Michael Meyers and fill in the blanks about his background quickly got on my nerves.  Much the same way George Lucas mucked up his own Star Wars movies by trying to explain everything, Zombie blows nearly an hour of runtime before switching gears and getting to the point.  I don't care who Michael Meyers was before the mask, I don't want to understand him or sympathize with him I just want to watch him saunter effortlessly behind running, screaming victims-to-be.  It really couldn't have been any worse if Zombie actually shot the ending wear little Michael sings a song about liking ice cream and candy as big Michael is gunned down by the cops.

The Prodigy - So much indie worshipping hype about a low-budget, street-wise action move that combines modern horror influences with Tarantino style crime moves.  It practically wears its budget on its sleeve, tosses in deliberate and bizarre anachronisms for no reason and is plagued by godawful, Asylum-style acting.

Inland Empire - I like David Lynch but when he's given carte blanche to go nuts with digital video, what you get is three and a half hours of mind-warping weirdness that never seems to go anywhere.  Apparently pitched as a movie about a woman in trouble, it certainly looks that way.  The fact that there was no script shows.  I expect Lynch to be balls out crazy but this was excessive.  I'd kill for him to go back to his Blue Velvet/Twin Peaks days when the s**t made sense but was off-center enough to leave you seriously creeped out and thinking.
