Well, we’ve made it up to the present. Here’s my list for 2005, presented without comment because, well, I’ve already written about most of these movies elsewhere on the blog.

  1. In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I’m watching the new Bad News Bears, and I’m afraid I have to take back some of the bad things I’ve been saying about Richard Linklater; it’s actually pretty good. Billy Bob might actually be better suited for the role of Buttermaker than Matthau, and Greg Kinnear is great too. The girl isn’t anywhere near as awesome as Tatum O’Neil, but what child actors are? School of Rock is still massively overrated, though. I stand by that.


  2. Still haven’t seen Bad News Bears, I’m interesting in The Newton Boys though.You know the only reason you don’t like School Of Rock is because you have no soul.


  3. Actually, the reasons I don’t like School of Rock are;a.) Having worked with children, I no longer find them cute, endearing, or precious.b.) Joan Cusack and Sarah Silverman are both horribly misused.c.) That song they wrote and played at the battle of the bands is awful and beyond cheesy.d.) I can’t stand AC/DC.
