As always with the end of a year, it's time to look back and remember the good times of 2003 - and that includes the amazing movies that had our attention (and our allowance) this past year. Check out Kidzworld's picks for the Top 5 movies of 2003, and tell us what you think!

# 1 - Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (New Line)

Director Peter Jackson definitely saved the best for last. Return of the King is the longest, and the best movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Whether you've been obsessed with Aragorn's journey, Frodo and Samwise Gamgee's mission or the friendly rivalry between Legolas the Elf and Gimli the Dwarf, you will not be disappointed by Return of the King. This movie has kept true to J.R.R. Tolkien's books and also created the most beautiful, incredible film, like, ever. Everything from Eowyn's crush on Aragorn, to Arwen's fate as an Elf, to Gollum's destiny is unveiled. Before you know it, those 208 minutes are over - and you'll want to see it again.

# 2 - Pirates of The Caribbean (Disney)

Thanks to this 2003 movie by Disney, pirates have never been cooler - or hotter! In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Johnny Depp is hilarious as the crazy pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow and Orlando Bloom is the adorable Will Turner, a blacksmith in love with the Governor's Daughter Elizabeth (Keria Knightley). The creepy skelton crew, the crazy Jack Sparrow and the strong-willed Elizabeth make this a great adventure movie. Oh yeah, and the smokin' kiss Will lays on Elizabeth makes it totally worth owning on DVD!

# 3 - What a Girl Wants (Warner Brothers)

Amanda Bynes and newcomer Oliver James lit up the screen in this quirky comedy about a girl named Daphne who heads to England to find her long lost dad, Henry (Colin Firth). This movie rocked because Amanda Bynes is such a gifted comedian and Oliver James is such a talented hottie. The goofiness of Daphne, the inner sweetness of Henry, as well as song stylings of Ian, (Oliver James' character), make up for the film's cheesy ending. Besides, who doesn't need a little cheese every now and then?

# 4 - Freaky Friday (Disney)

This movie took an old flick and made it better. Freaky Friday is full of laughs as a mom and a daughter, (Anna and Tess played by Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis), live through the day as one another. Jamie Lee Curtis is such a convincing 15 year-old, you'd swear the body swap actually happened! The soundtrack is just as cool as the movie and features bands like Lillix and Simple Plan, and even has a track with Lindsay Lohan at the mic!

# 5 - Finding Nemo (Disney)
This animated film brought to life the adventures of a little clown fish and his overprotective dad. Filled with hilarious adventures and amazingly real aquatic animation, this movie is a total must-own. The forgetful fish, Dory, and the wannabe vegetarian shark, Bruce, make Finding Nemo one of those animated films that you'll dig whether you're four or 40.
