It wasn't the year it promised to be, for sure. A lot of the big sequels turned out to suck.
My movie of the year without a doubt was 3:10 to Yuma.
I didn't get to see some of the others I particularly wanted to. Off the top of my head: The Nines, The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, 30 Days of Night, Day Watch, Tell No One, The Brave One, The Good Shepherd, Resident Evil Extinction, The Bourne Ultimatum.
Otherwise I saw Halloween (let down), Smokin' Aces (good fun), 28 Weeks Later (let down), The Simpsons Movie (let down), DeJa Vu (good).
8/5 Blaze Bayley
