Film Prophet's 2nd Annual Best & Worst Movie Awards:
2005 Edition

I didn't do worst films of the year this time because I avoided most of them like Alone in the Dark, Fantastic Four, The Dukes of Hazzard, Lords of Dogtown, The Honeymooners, Amityville Horror, White Noise, Hide & Seek, Bewitched,
Duece Bigalo: European Gigalo, Son of the Mask, Into the Blue, Saw II, Be Cool
