Best movies i've seen this year:

Troy.

The Butterfly Effect - I'm not one of those people who think it is a sophisticated movie, i liked it because it was interesting and touching.

Harry Potter + Prisoner of Azkaban - Simply great.

The Ring - I'm not sure I saw this one this year.

The 25th hour.

Overall this hasn't been an amazing year for movies.

Best movies of all times:

Da Best of the best:
The Fellowship of the Ring.
The Matrix.
The Lion King.
Mononoke Hime.
Best action movie:
Terminator 2
Best Drama-

Best Musical:

Edit: Now would be a good time to say that my list doesn't mean much because i'm sure i'm forgetting many movies.

Bunnyrabbiot reminded of:
Schindler's list.
Also, the mask which was brilliant, best comedy ever.

In the old films it was an accident, but in the new films, it was intentional as a tribute.

There was NOTHING wrong with X-men 2, it was a very good action movie.
And groundhog day isn't so philosophical.
