"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Top Movies of 2004

Just saw Sideways tonight and it was superb. It's one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. It's going right to the top of my list of best movies of 2004 (in fact it inspired me to create one). I've only included movies which I've seen in the theater this year. I have high hopes that Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic will eventually crack the list, but alas I haven't seen it yet.

Top 10 Films

  1. Sideways
  2. Garden State
  3. Napolean Dynamite
  4. I Heart Huckabees
  5. Hero (technically this was released in 2002, but it was just released in the U.S. this year)
  6. Kill Bill Vol. 2
  7. Twilight Samurai (also technically from 2002)
  8. Coffee and Cigarettes
  9. Shrek 2
  10. Incident at Loch Ness

Top 5 Documentaries

  1. Super Size Me
  2. Control Room
  3. Dig!
