Top 5 Movies of 2003

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.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
