2004 - the films I saw

I took in 59 2004 films, almost in all in the theatre and most on opening night. The films in bold constitute my top ten, excluding documentries. Films with asteriks are the ones that I will not see again. Some of them are terrible.

The hyperlinks are to the Rottentomatoes website. Films are rated out of 100, and only people working as film critics may become offical raters.

In some cases, my ratings coincided with the critics, but in several instances, our rating were incongruent. I liked King Arthur, but the critics gave it 32%. I disliked I Heart Huckabees, but the critics gave it 60%. They gave Closer 68%, but I really didn't care for it.
