Now, this was a really tough list. While there are a couple of names that leap immediately to mind, the rest of the 2005 class hasn't been impressive enough, and cobbling together a top 10 becomes a very relative thing.
Most of the time, films labelled passable are making it to the top in a list where being not awful is almost good enough to make it to the top.
And some of the year's biggest earners have been pretty darned unwatchable.
Sigh. Let's hope 2006 brings forth a better crop.
