CT Movies picks 2005’s “most redeeming films”

Click here for the details.

This list went online two days ago, but I’ve been so busy with other things lately that I didn’t realize it had gone up until now.

Needless to say, since this list is a collective statement and not a personal or individual statement, there are some films here that I would have been happy to leave off altogether, and I would have written up some of the other entries differently, too. Ah well.

Coming to CT Movies next week: the “critics’ choice” top ten list.

X-Men: Apocalypse and the legend of Nimrod's arrows
Watch: A traumatized Roman gives a first-hand account of the Resurrection in one of the best scenes from Risen
Review: Alice through the Looking Glass (dir. James Bobin, 2016)
Prophet Joseph -- episodes eleven and twelve

    Hard to believe that Danny Boyle actually made a film that could go to number one on a “most redeeming” list.

    Never really got the big attraction with Millions, yeah it’s a redeeming film and should probably be on the list, but number 1? Also I have no idea why P&P; is on the list really – other than that a pretty decent list methinks.

    I think that “In Her Shoes” with Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz would fit the “redeeming” bill as well. We just saw it last night and really enjoyed it.
