Top 10 Movies of 2005

A ton of great movies thrilled and entertained us in 2005. Take a look back on the top 10 films of the year with Kidzworld's picks!

#10. Bewitched

Will Ferrell had a few movies to hit the big screen in 2005, but Bewitched was definitely his big hit. Will plays a washed up actor who has been chosen to star in the re-make of the 1960's show, Bewitched. Nicole Kidman plays a real-life witch who Jack picks to star opposite of him in the show - but he is clueless of her magical powers! There are lots of laughs with this movie. It's perfect for a night when you just need to get lost in something funny.

#9. Madagascar

What happens when a bunch of domesticated zoo animals escape their fenced in homes at the zoo and hop a ship to their homeland? You've got one funny plot for one of the best animated films of 2005. Madagascar is all about Marty, a zebra desperate to see the world, who manages to take his friends along for the ride. These lovable animals get themselves into some hilarious situations stranded on the island of Madagascar, just off the coast of Africa. Madagascar is great for peeps of all ages.

#8. The Greatest Game Ever Played

The Greatest Game Ever Played might not have had car chases or buildings being blown up, but this heartwarming tale is based on the real-life story of amateur golfer, Francis Ouimet. Shia LaBeouf, star of Holes and Disney Channel show, Even Stevens, does a fantastic job as the working-class golfer who plays his way to the top. If you're looking for a feel-good film that you can cuddle up to watch on a rainy night, check out The Greatest Game Ever Played.

#7. Batman Begins

There were a ton of action/superhero flicks to make their way to the big screen in 2005, but Batman Begins shone brighter than the rest. Sure, Katie Holmes acting was a little forced, but Christian Bale made a great Batman and the action scenes were definitely worth the price of admission. This flick would make a great gift for any superhero fans!

#6. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
2005 has definitely been the year of epic fantasy films. On December 9, 2005, C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia came to life for movie-goers. When the Pevensie children are sent to live with an old professor in the country, they discover a magical land called Narnia, hiding at the back of an old wardrobe. Explore Narnia with them by checking out this terrific flick!

    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.
