2007 Year in Review: Movies


Since I’ve been reviewing movies on Panorama of the Mountains all year, this is the first chance I’ve had to look back and make a list of all the movies I’ve seen in one year. In addition to listing and linking to the reviews I’ve also rated them on a five star system. Five stars in all-time classic, three stars is the baseline for an enjoyable film end-to-end, one star is a bad movie with perhaps one good sequence or performance. A film with no stars has no redeeming characteristics at all.
