Dave's Top 5 Yes/No Films of 2007

I know that some will find gaping holes in my list. I've missed (or haven't yet seen) what I hear were some great films last year... and some terrible ones too.

Dave's Top Five "Yes" Films 2007

1. No Country For Old Men
2. Death Proof
3. Zodiac
4. Eastern Promises
5. Super Bad

Dave's Top Five "No" Films 2007
(to clarify: the worst that I saw... and granted there were a lot that I didn't see because you know... why put yourself through 'em. However, that's the same argument my parents would use about several of my "Yes" List too.)

1. Into the Wild
2. Stardust
3. Spiderman
4. Shoot'em Up
5. Meet the Robinsons

Rush Hour 3... totally i forgot we saw that. Man.

And yeah, Callaghan... Into the Wild was so bad on so many levels. The performance by the main guy, the writing, and the direction. The beatification of idiocy.
Big disappointment.

"The beautification of idiocy."

My new favourite quote.

You couldn't be more right.
