This film annoys me because it chickened out with regards to being true to the book. In the book, the big industry on trial was cigarrete manufacturers. The filmmakers obviously were not that brave, because in the film, the industry on trial was gun manufacturers.

Solid film all around other than that, though.

And now that I look at it again, with your additions, I think 03 was DEFINITELY stronger than 07 will be.

'03 was pretty solid, indeed.

Chalk I, Robot and The Day After Tomorrow to the '04 list, too.

I wasn't too big on the Matrix sequels, especially Revolutions. Why'd you leave off Reloaded?

I wasn't sure if Reloaded was 02 or 03....see, I knew one of Reloaded and Revolutions came out in a November, and I was thinking it was Reloaded(which is incorrect obviously), which would've meant Reloaded would have had to be in 02 to come before Revolutions in 03. But in reality, Revolutions is the one that came out in November 2003, and Reloaded was like May 2003 or something like that. I know that now. I didn't remember it so clearly at the time of posting.

And that's it for today's edition of 'Answering In 15 Sentences What Could Have Been Answered In 1!'

That's why Revolutions didn't do as well as Reloaded, they were released too close to each other.

The Pirates sequels did it right, but they sucked, so it doesn't make that much of a difference.

Yeah...I still haven't seen the Pirates sequels but I keep hearing that they were crap.

They ought to have studied the BTTF sequels. That's how you do sequels.

Definitely.

They're the only back-to-back sequels that kind of work. I used to love Part II, but after re-watching it for the 50th time, it's not as good as I remember it being.

Biff being a murderous pseudo-rapist gets to me.

(Add Hellboy to the '04 list, too. )

I still rank Part II above Part I.

The whole sports almanac thing is genius. If I had a time machine, that's what I'd do. The bastard Biff stole Marty's idea!

Plus, it's the only one of the three films where the time machine flies!

P.S. You gotta love the helmet-viser-whatever-the-hell-it-is thing that Doc puts over his head that looked all futuristic in the 80s but that just looks totally 80s now.

Back to the future 1, the original, is the best and movies now are really good and getting better even though a lot of good movies are old.

true. I wish they would've stayed in the future longer though.

I still dislike how they handle Jennifer (drugging her and leaving her in an alley?).

The whole idea of them going back to the same day as the 1st one is absolute genius though, I love it.

2006 had some absolute pearlers though. Brick, Pan's Labyrinth, Goodnight, And Good Luck, The Proposition, Clerks 2, Little Miss Sunshine, Casion Royale, The Squid and the Whale, The Departed, United 93, Volver and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada were all excellent. I still find it hard to make a top 10 out of those 12.
You have no idea how jealous I am you got to see Paris, Je T'aime. That was one film this year I was absolutely dying to see, but it never came within 100 miles of me.

Do you rate your movies out of 4 or 5 stars? I use a 4 star system.

5 stars if I have to use a star system. I usually rate out of 10 points, using half point increments.

And when I get really hardcore into ratings, I use a 2-dimensional, graphical rating system my friend and I have been developing.
