I had a hard time trying to think up the right sort of guidelines for my Top 10 list this year. I was originally going to have it be any movie that got it's first theatrical run in the US this year, but then I realized that if I did it that way, 4 of my top 6 would be movies that came out well before 2005. And three of those would be ones I saw well before 2005. So, I am instead making my criteria this: It was either released in 2005 somewhere in the world or it was released overseas in the last year and it got it's first US theatrical run or DVD release in 2005. For the record, the four that this disqualifies are Oldboy, Sympathy For Mr Vengeance, Dolls, and Pulse. Now.
