Tall Matt's Travels

Movie Review: 2003

Some of you I have known for quite a long time, others of you, not so long at all.  However, it probably hasn't taken you long to figure out I'm a movie guy.  Ok, a movie geek.  As I hit the theatre fairly regularly, I'm often asked:  "What's out?"  "Anything in the theatre worth going to?"  "Anything on DVD?"  After watching the Golden Globes and the Oscars and getting the same questions, I thought I would turn Movie Critic and very arrogantly create my own list.  Since I'm also a sports geek and it's basketball tournament time and I needed a theme, here are my "Top 25" Rankings for 2003. 
Again, keep in mind this is my own list - there are still a bunch of good ones I have yet to see, and I've tried to note at least a few of them at the bottom of this note.  There are also a bunch I did see that didn't make the list, such as "The Recruit" and "S.W.A.T." (Sorry girls, check out "Phone Booth" for your Colin Farrell fix).  If you see something obviously or inexplicably missing, let me know.  Otherwise, it's a fairly safe bet I've seen it, but it didn't make the top 25. 

So, take a look, see what you think, and fire off those comments about how I don't have a life, and where do I find the time, and blah, blah, blah.  Just remember that when you are printing off this list before you head to Blockbuster.
