MetaCritic is a site like Rotten Tomatoes that aggregates the reviews of many critics to provide a score for a movie or game. I've never used it before, being a Rotten Tomatoes guy myself, but it seems like a nice site. Anyway, what disturbed me a bit is that out of their list of the top twenty movies for 2005, I haven't seen a single one.
The top five:
The Best of Youth
Wallace and Gromit
Out of those, I haven't even heard of The Best of Youth or Nobody Knows, and I'm totally uninterested in seeing Wallace and Gromit. But, there are all sorts of movies on the top twenty list that I kind of wish I'd seen. I don't really feel like I've seen that many good movies this year. I guess my top three are Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Serenity, and Batman Begins. But, really, I guess I haven't seen too many bad movies this year either. Episode III was the last movie I saw in a theatre! The grind at work has really taken a toll on after-work amusement with coworkers; nobody ever wants to do anything anymore.
