2007 in Review  

With 2007 now completely under wraps, I am in the unenviable position of rank ing the best and worst of the year in film. Over the course of this year, I have seen over one hundred and twenty-five different movies, many of which I have thankfully long-s ince forgotten about. I would have to admit, however, this has been a good year for films. I have seen actors really surprise me by push ing the envelope such as Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men. Then there is the opposite end of the spectrum, where actors really scrape the bottom of the barrel as Dustin Hoffman did in Mr. Magoriumís Magic Emporium. As the multitude of award shows begin to hit the airwaves this next week, you will have the opportunity to see and hear information about films you both have seen and never heard of. When the opportunity arises, check out some of these movies and see how they rate with you. I am anxious to see what 2008 cin ema masterpieces have in store, but until then, here is my list, ranked in order, of The Best and Worst of 2007. Until next time, have fun at the movies and try not to eat too much popcorn!
