The 2002 Rank Them as You See Them Thread

DISCLAIMER: Please post only your list, no off-topic posts please. These only make the thread long and cluttered. Also, when you see more movies, edit your original post rather than making a new one so that we can keep the thread as short as possible. Lastly, if you're going to list a movie that was in limited release in 2001 for Oscar consideration, put (2001) beside it. Thanks.

My List:

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
2. Road to Perdition
3. Red Dragon
4. Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
5. Minority Report
6. Insomnia
7. Spider-man
8. 8 Mile
9. The Count of Monte Cristo
10. Signs

    Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers $
    3. Jackass: The Movie $
    4. Punch-Drunk Love $
    5. The Ring $
    6. Signs $
    7. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones zzz $$$
    9. Minority Report zzz
    9. Blackhawk Down (2001) zzz $
    9. Ali (2001)
    11. Die Another Day $
    12. Jason X
    13. Star Trek Nemesis

    It's been nothing but LOTR since 12/19/01, but that has to end sometime soon. I never took part in one of these before, so here's to the first time for ranking movies. Hopefully I'll have more opportunities and motivation to see more films this year--last year was my lowest theatrical attendance ever, easily.

    The list:

    1. (to be written...)
