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. BewitchedWill 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. MadagascarWhat 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 PlayedThe 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 BeginsThere 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 Wardrobe2005 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!
