Most Wanted Movies of 2005

The second annual countdown of what's expected to be the best movies released during 2005 is listed below, assembled by the trendy and sharp Film Prophet. Previewing the best of what's to come in 2005, the finalized list was based on observing movies as entertainment, anticipation, longer the wait - the more desired, favorite artists, early 2006 Oscar contenders, and what I need to see the most of this year.  Last year's one number most wanted movie was The Aviator and it won the most Academy Awards. I should be able to review all these movies in time as last year's list I was delayed to complete the 30 by the end of the year because of the later releases got pushed even later. The first three months of the year are always slow and a no show, and rarely count towards any nominations, high box office sales, fan favorites, or high Film Prophet grades. No dates are given because they are subject to change and only those currently confirmed as of March 22 for the year of 2005 are eligible and included in the list.
