Best Movies of 2005

The Top Ten

1 Batman Begins

By far the coolest, most original, and creative movie of 2005. It has superb drama, driving scenes, special effects, story, and dialog. - juriah

This is the best movie between 2000 and 2005 for me, and believe or not but this is actually the worse movie of the saga, so, imagine the other ones :D

I agree, batman is the best superhero, and the sequels of this movie are better, Nolan is the best director, and bale is the best batman

Batman begins not hit in box office but this is really a biggest blockbuster

2 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Best star wars movie in my opinion it should tied with empire strikes back the duel is cool story very good much improvement of hayden and other character very underrated - Thirdwind

The most bestest(yes its a word) the most amazingnestest(dont even ask) totaly awesomenestes(... ) movie of the star wars triolgy - theTwister

The most exciting movie of this year. The best lightsaber fight we've all been waiting for. The final chapter of the prequels, and the most emotional and darkest Star Wars movie ever. This film is full of action at every second that it was too impossible for one to say it's boring. This movie has the most action, lightsaber duels, and scenes you don't want to miss in a blink of an eye. Obi-Wan was such a cool character, fighting Anakin and killing the kickass villian Grievous. This movie has an unhappy ending, but wraps up to the original trilogy. Gotta be the best film of the year

The Best Movie Of The Star Wars Prequels. - masoncarr2244

16 Chicken Little

No, screw this movie. - FondaSu

17 Mr. & Mrs. Smith
18 Brokeback Mountain

Heath Ledger gives the performance of a lifetime. This film is one of the best but avoided by many people. It is very misunderstood.

Again, why the hell to many blockbusters in the top 10? Come on people this movie needs to been on the top 5 at least

I have not seen the theatrical version, but the director's cut was a great movie filled with some great performances. It may not be a history lesson, but it certainly deserves to be higher. - Mann0802

32 Capote
33 A History of Violence
34 Crash

A great philosophical movie about missunderstandings, racism, people connections and humanity itself, The best of the year - MatrixGuy

Live your life to the point of impact... Great acting from Ludacris, good singer and good actor at the same time. - roblist

48 Oliver Twist

Don't go in expecting a song and dance extravaganza (thanks a lot Lionel Bart! ), Roman Polanski stayed true to the original novel, which is certainally more than what I can say for some of the other book adaptations ahead of this under the radar movie. You could actually feel the coldness from the workhouse and the narrow London streets.
