Hondo's Movie of the Year


Recommended Posts

Okay, well it may not be over yet, but by gum it almost is so I think we should have our 2004 Hondo's Movie of the Year awards. How it works is simple. You just post your top ten flicks of the last year (going by films released in the US in 2004, so if it's a foreign flick from 2003 from another country released in the US in 2004 it's all good) in this order

 

1) least favorite

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

10) favorite

 

We'll run until this day next week then I'll tally the votes and see what is "Hondo's Movie of the Year"!

 

*note if any changes needed to be made (only if movies after the 16th that come out) to your list PM this forums admin.

I'll pass on this because I haven't seen too many movies this year :D

 

But definitely Napoleon Dynamite, Shaun of the Dead, Eternal Sunshine, Sideways, and Hero all are up there...did The Girl Next Door come out this year or last? I liked Spiderman2 also...i think I saw it twice in the theatres.

 

I d/led Garden State, I'll have to watch that soon.

Mentions: Bubba Ho-Tep only came out this year over here but it's a last-year movie for you, vice versa for me with Goodbye Lenin!, Kill Bill 2, Saw, and even some of the blockbusters like Troy, I Robot and Day After Tomorrow.

 

There's a lot of stuff that I've DLed but not watched yet like Collateral, the end of Team America, Motorcycle Diaries, etc that might've made the list, not been the worst year for movies.

Spiderman 2 the best movie of the year. Realy?

 

 

I'm not sure I want to itemise this years movies, suffice to say that there isn't a movie on anyone elses list that I have seen that I don't like.

 

 

I'll second Kontroll because I don't know if anyone else will.

The song listed at #1 in peoples list is their 10th favorite. It's a little confusing, but that's what 2T asked for...and we always do what 2T says...always.

 

And I knwo there has been at least one vote for Kontroll.

 

Also, looking back....

 

The Goodbye Lenin I wasn't sure about but Rotten Tomatoes has it listed as 2004.

Are you voting for a movie you haven't seen?

Hey, KOS, Jont, what'd you make of "intermission"? and what's Kontroll bout?

Not seen it, I think that's the Irish one with Colin Farrell as a knacker (pikey).

 

Kontroll as jacked from some guy on imdb:

The film is about a group of ticket inspectors in the Hungarian subway system, with the focus on at least one in particular (Bulcsú). Each character is extremely likable, even the passengers become memorable characters, as none of them buy a ticket and are chased or shaken down by the inspectors, which is commonplace in Hungary. There is even a young girl in a bear suit (don't ask) that is absolutely gorgeous. The interaction between her and Bulcsú is sweet and funny. They had the kind of chemistry that is difficult to capture on film.

 

The entire film takes place in the underground, which is effectively presented as a separate world than the one above ground. Some characters even talk about "up there" with a child- like wonder in their voices.

 

The cinematography is beautiful. Some of the scenes or long panning shots in the underground are breathtaking. Who'd a thunk it'd look so cool down there? You can tell the director has a photography background, by the wonderful shots he selected.

 

I was also pleasantly surprised by the rockin' soundtrack. Unfortunately, the band that did the music (NEO) are no longer together. Lets hope the director gets the soundtrack released.

 

This film is not all laughs however. It has a very serious side that is dark, and an ending that makes you think.

OK, so I finally saw Napolean Dynamite after getting a copy from IC. Much to my surprise, after hearing nothing but endless praise, I really didn't like the movie. Sure, some parts were funny, but as a whole, the movie was actually kind of weak. Were my expectations high? Yes, but I actually didn't laugh once throughout the whole movie, I only snickered once, during the dance scene. This movie will definitely not go into my top 10 for this year.
