I'm rating these as I see them, so with 25th Hour being the first film viewed this year, it will remain at the #1 spot, regardless of whether or not its my #1 favorite this year. Ratings are subject to change with repeat viewings. 5* rating system.

1. 25th Hour - **** (1/11/03)
2. Narc - **** (1/??/03)
3. LOTR: Two Towers - ***** (1/19/03)
4. Catch Me If You Can - ****1/2 (1/25/03)

I sure hope this is a good year!

I reserve the right to move these around at any time. Some of the movies' scores may change after more time has passed, or after seeing them again. So there.

Just saw "Behind The Red Door", a 2003 Showtime film. Great dramastic movie, starring one of my favorites, Kiefer Sutherland. I rate this an 8/10. Check it out on Showtime people.
