Ceremony Year (2005)

Movies Came Out In (2004) Winner: Million Dollar Baby – Absolutely loved this film  The acting, the directing, and the story (an aspiring female boxer rises through the ranks with the help of a crotchety legendary trainer). A must watch for all. The Aviator – An interesting biopic about Howard Hughes, but way too long.  A […]

Ceremony Year (1983)

Movies Came Out In (1982) Winner: Gandhi – Great film.  Saw a few times as a kid growing up in school.  Very powerful. True story in which Ben Kingsley plays Mahatma Gandhi and his peaceful, non-violent ways to get British control out of India. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial – Great film.  Holds up in my opinion, as […]

Ceremony Year (1992)

Movies Came Out In (1991) Winner: The Silence of the Lambs – An absolute thriller.  Holds up over time, still as nerve wracking today to watch as back then.  Love it. Jodie Foster plays an FBI agent tracking down a serial killer with the help of Hannibal Lecter (Sir Anthony Hopkins), an imprisoned psychopathic genius […]

Ceremony Year (2007)

Movies Came Out In (2006) Winner: The Departed – One of my favorite movies of all time, I can watch over and over again.  Acting, characters, story, everything about this film is awesome. Undercover cops, Irish gangs, Mafia, drugs, FBI, Jack, and great music, this movie literally has it all. Babel – Was “ok”.  Not my […]

Ceremony Year (2003)

Movies Came Out In (2002) Winner: Chicago – Not a huge fan of musicals, but I enjoyed this. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger “compete” for publicity and fame while in prison and an unscrupulous lawyer (played by Richard Gere) interferes the whole time. I thought Gere was the weakest link, but all in all it’s […]

Ceremony Year (2000)

Movies Came Out In (1999) Winner: American Beauty – Great movie, great story, great acting, great directing. It’s a shame that Kevin Spacey turned out to be such a creep/monster, as it soils his really great performance as a father going through a mid-life crisis in this film. The Cider House Rules – Never saw when […]
