Movies I've seen in the theater this year, from best to worst.

The Departed: A (best Scorcese since Goodfellas, IMO. Most fun I had in the theater this year).
V for Vendetta: A
The Illusionist: A-
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: B+
Clerks 2: B+
The DaVinci Code: B/B+
Beerfest: B (great fun with a group of friends. Made me *crave* beer, too!)
Superman Returns: B
X-Men: the Last Stand: B
Snakes on a Plane: C+ (great for what it was, though)
Click: C+ (Sandler does It's a Wonderful Life. Average at best. Walken is fun, though.)
The Break Up: C- (painful to watch)

In Theatres Only:

V for Vendetta: A

Da Vinci Code: B
**Da Vinci Code** much more enjoyable and better after watching it on DVD. Grade raised to A.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: B

You, Me, and Dupree: C-

Cars: A-

Santa Clause 3: Escape Clause: B-

Borat: B-
**Borat** overall very funny, but dropped a full grade because a) probably won't be as funny seen again- probably won't buy it, b) big ugly nude men and way too much exposure, and c) more male nudity than female nudity (none)

Night at the Museum: B

Scorsese made his best movie since "Taxi Driver". Awesome! Wim Wenders made his worst movie-not awesome. Docs and politically charged movies continued to kick up a storm, as I've noted below. Some of them were more interesting for social relevance than for real entertainment, though our current climate of social change-upheaval?- is producing a fine new generation of star filmmakers, such as the one at the top of my heap.

Visit my blog post for more commentary.
And here are my fave theatrical revivals of the year. In Fairfield County, CT, not quite up to the sophistication of having Jodorowsky or "Kwaidan" at the local arthouses, but still:

2001: A Space Oddysey :: A++++++++ Greatest Movie Ever for me, hosted by Keir Dullea in New Haven!

Fight Club :: A+

Army of Shadows :: A+ why was this never once shown in America?

His Girl Friday :: A

THX:1138 :: A- remember when George Lucas made movies that challenged and disturbed audiences? I didn't either, until I saw this.

Bed and Board :: A-

Monty Python and the Holy Grail :: A -- How did they do those extra seconds of footage?

All apologies to "Dave Chapelle's Block Party", "Jesus Is Magic" by Sarah Silverman, "American Dreamz", "IdleWild", "Lucky Number Slevin", "Fast Food Nation", "Death of a President", the Leonard Cohen doc and all the movies I just didn't have time to see this year. And all the "Snakes on a Plane" fans too! It's why we build movie theaters in our houses now, to never miss a movie ever again. Hope springs eternal for Spike Lee's magnificent "When The Levees Broke", or Don Cheadle playing my dad's friend Miles Davis, or even more DVDs coming out this year. And me and my friends have some good ideas for movies too....
