Best Movies of 2003

Here's the Top 20 Movies I've seen this year:

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
2. Lost in Translation
3. thirteen
4. Kill Bill Volume 1
5. The School of Rock
6. Finding Nemo
7. Talk To Her
8. Better Luck Tomorrow
9. Bend It Like Beckham
10. Elf
11. Chicago
12. Whale Rider
13. X2: X-Men United
14. Bringing Down The House
15. American Splendor
16. Charlies Angels: Full Throttle
17. T3: Rise of The Machines
18. The Guru
19. Mona Lisa Smile
20. A Mighty Wind

I ranked these movies based on how much I enjoyed the movie, how good the acting was, and how impressed you would be reading this list. It was a pretty good year for watching movies. Directors Quentin Tarantino ("Kill Bill") and Peter Jackson (LOTR) proved that longer movies won't drive audiences away, only those with incontinence. Good year for Girl Power as well, with "Whale Rider" and "Bend It Like Beckham" seeing big success outside of the arthouses and no former Spice Girls releasing solo records.

Some hits (X-men) and misses (The Hulk) in the comic book adaptation scene, which should tell those stupid Hollywood suits that jumping on the bandwagon doesn't translate to blockbusters. Don't forget "American Splendor" was a comic book too. 2004 brings us "Hellboy" and "The Punisher" and from the trailers I've seen it looks pretty sucky. The only thing that excites me is Spider Man 2.

Hope y'all had a good year!
