I love Miracle, they went to such lengths to make that movie realistic, and not Hollywood it up. Kurt Russell was great.

Sideways is great, albeit uncomfortable at times. "I went deep"

Collateral was awesome. Tom Cruise pisses me off but Jamie Foxx was terrific and it's an engaging story that's shot beautifully. Might be my favorite movie of the new century. Didn't love Ray but I get the popular and critical appreciation for it.

In spite of some of the technical goofs (hi, boom mic in the shot!), Sideways was a fantastic movie. Great dialogue. Eternal Sunshine, Man on Fire, and Finding Neverland were also very well done.

Never understood the love for The Aviator, and I wanted to like it. I think I even own the DVD. Maybe it's worth another watch some day if I have 3 hours to spare...

Remember when Facebook came out in late summer 2004 and a significant percentage of users had Garden State as their all-time favorite movie? I was not one of those people. But it does have a strong soundtrack.

Finally:

Anchorman.
