Thinking about the best films of 2005 (released domestically thus far) and I’m stymied by the sheer mediocrity of most everything I’ve seen. I can think of one film I hope will be on my list at the end of the year: Howl’s Moving Castle. After that I can only come up with four lesser films to fill out the list: Millions, Crash, Mysterious Skin, and The Cinderella Man. How about you? Here are a list of films I’m anticipating. Any responses or suggestions for 05 films to look out for will be appreciated: The Best of Youth, Me and You and Everone We Know, March of the Penguins, Happy Endings, The History of Violence, Kings and Queens, Elizabethtown, Jarhead, The New World, Brokeback Mountain, King Kong (I think the trailer is awesome), All the King’s Men, Broken Flowers.
