    None of these are really jumping out at me, but ultimately it came down to The Prestige vs Casino Royale.

    I think I gotta go with Casino Royale, but on another day I might pick The Prestige.

    I went with the Prestige. I enjoy good mind fuck movies and this was a great example of one. There are a few that I enjoyed, though. 300, Silent Hill, the Departed, Apocalytco, Casino Royale, and Crank were things to enjoy.

    It was down to Apocalypto, Rocky Balboa, and The Last King of Scotland in the poll. I went with Rocky Balboa because I was anticipating the shit out of that movie before it came out.

    However, United 93, The Davinci Code, and Clerks II all deserve a shout out. I might have voted for The Davinci Code if it was in the poll. Borat was also shocking but funny. Hills Have Eyes was a well-done rip off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Havent seen many of those. I will say that I wouldve selected Borat as a poll option.

    I probably should've put Borat on the list instead of Superman Returns. I think my curiosity over whether or not someone will actually vote for Superman Returns got the better of me.

    I'd edit it, but the system won't let you change a poll after it's up.

    I need to rewatch United 93. I remember thinking the style of the film--documentary-style camera work, only no-name actors used--felt very original.

    Idiocracy was a documentary, not a film.

    Surprisingly strong year with a lot of films I would deem perfect in their executions.

    PRESTIGE - exact
    APOCALYPTO - rhythmic
    CHILDREN OF MEN - symbolic
    PAN'S LABYRINTH - phantasmagoric
    CASINO ROYALE - proper
    MIAMI VICE - muscular
    IDIOCRACY - prescient
    LIVES OF OTHERS - tight
    PERFUME - lush
    STRANGER THAN FICTION - neat
    THE FOUNTAIN - transcendent
    THE FALL - picturesque
    BORAT - gut-busting

    And those are just the ones I liked.

    Already addressed that. It won't let me edit the poll.

    If you want to edit it and toss out Superman Returns and put Borat in its place, then feel free to do so. Or toss out Idiocracy. Either one.

    Crank was great. A Scanner Darkly too. The Hills Have Eyes remake was surprisingly decent as well. My fav of the year though is
