This list wasn’t as hard to compile as I thought it would be. When I go to the movies, after I’m sitting there watching the credit, I decide then and there whether I’m going to buy it when it comes out on DVD. I don’t know if anyone shares the same sensation but after I see a movie I absolutely love, I look forward to owning. Not necessarily to watch again (although that’s part of it) but to be able to share the movie with friends who haven’t seen it so they can love the movie too and we’ll have that in common (or they can hate it and it will always be a blemish on their permanent friendship record). So I looked at all the movies that came out in the 2000s and looked for the ones I owned and that made it easy*. I also tried to put them in order of best to least best. Honestly, the only numbers that matter is 1-15. After that it gets pretty interchangeable.
If I ever wrote anything on my blog about the movie, there’s a link to it.
Everyone in the cast was great…especially Abigail Breslin, who from the moment she started speaking in Signs, you knew she would be good in everything she did (check out Keane if you don’t believe me). She really pulls off the cute-to-sad-to-cute-again-but-in-a-sad-way thing.
A lot of the movie was predictable but it doesn’t matter.
I won’t spoil anything but I will say this.
In the last 20 minutes, don’t drink or eat anything. Just take a deep breath…
