Reviewer's Rating: N/A
Rate This Movie: (Don\'t waste my time!)(Don\'t like it!)(So... So...)(Will watch again!)(Add it to my DVD collection!)

Posted on 21 June 2010 by

In 2003, multiple films were made that were instant classics. From fantastic fantasies to dramatic dramas (yes, those are meant to be redundant), the year’s films were amazing. So, here is my pick for what should have been the Best Picture of 2003.

Best Picture:

>Lord of the Rings: Return of the King – Peter Jackson
>Mystic River – Clint Eastwood
>Lost in Translation – Sofia Coppola
>Cold Mountain – Anthony Minghella
>Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl – Gore Verbinski
>21 Grams – Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
>City of God – Fernando Meirelles
>In America – Jim Sheridan
>The Last Samurai – Edward Zwick
>Kill Bill Vol. 1 – Quentin Tarantino
>Dogville – Lars von Trier
>Identity – James Mangold
>Matchstick Men – Ridley Scott

You see what I have to deal with?! So many fantastic movies!

So now, after DAYS of deciding, I can now say with confidence that the best film of 2003 is:

City of God

The film was a tiny bit better than Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, 21 Grams and Identity, and it had some of the most moving plot elements of all time.
