Best Reviewed Films of 2007

Since it’s the last day of 2007, we decided to take a look back at the year in film, and see how things shaped up.

Thanks to our July 07, 2007 wedding, we skipped the Summer Movies 2007 season for the most part and have been playing catch up ever since. While we are still behind (with hits like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) still among many others on our must-see list), we did get a chance to check out 36 2007 movie releases to date.

The Best

300 (2007)

    Since everybody likes good news better than bad, let’s start from the top first. At the top of our list, with our only perfect score on a 2007 film, is 300 (2006), the Gerard Butler-led stunning visual epic about 300 Spartans defending their homeland from a massive army of Persians.

Notable Mentions

Live Free or Die Hard (2007)

    We had 6 movies at our second highest score of they year, 4 out of 5 stars. Bruce Willis’ 4th installment, Live Free or Die Hard (2007), brought everybody’s favorite cop John McClane back for a 4th adventure that was bigger and better than most anyone was expecting after the dismal Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995).
Transformers (2007)

    An 80’s favorite is re-invented Michael Bay style in 2007 Summer Blockbuster Transformers (2007), and we loved it. With the Transformers themselves stunningly impressive, it was hard for the actors to compete – but newcomer Shia LaBeouf did, thus cementing his status as a fully-fledged movie star.
Fido (2006)

    Zombie comedy Fido (2006) also made our list, as a “dead” Billy Connolly out-acted many others, and Carrie Anne-Moss jumped into her post-The Matrix (1999) career as a lonely housewife in this dark comedy that turned out to be one of the funniest movies of the year.
The Number 23 (2007)

    While we usually love Jim Carrey the comedian, his dark turn as an obsessed man searching for meaning in The Number 23 (2007) shot to the top of our list this year. This was quite a surprise to us, as we were expecting more of a The Majestic-type performance from him.
Surf's Up (2007)

Death Proof (2007)

    Also coming in at 4 out of 5 stars is Quentin Tarantino’s latest, Death Proof (2007), a retro horror flick starring 80’s fave Kurt Russell. And how did the second part of this double-feature do? Quentin’s addition to the Grindhouse package beat out Robert Rodriguez’s companion film, Planet Terror (2007), by a full star.
There they are – our list of the best films of 2007. Stay tuned for our list of the Worst Reviewed Films of 2007, later on today.
