Stadium Seating, Dolby Surround Sound
1. Batman Begins
2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
3. Mr. & Mrs. Smith
4. Sin City
    Not the ultimate comic book movie as some have claimed -- that's still Spider-Man 2. However, it's as close to the concept as you could ever think of getting, essentially, a live-action "animated" film-noir. Style in spades, but you never really get the feeling that Rodriguez cares about his characters as more than chess pieces to be moved around.

Reclining Seats, Stereo Sound
5. Crash
6. War of the Worlds
7. Cinderella Man
8. It's All Gone Pete Tong
9. George A. Romero's Land of the Dead
10. Constantine
    The complaints about Keanu not being British reallyonly apply to fans -- anyone else won't notice in this excellently paced and beautifully shot film, although the ending is a major letdown. Nice tangential point: finally a comic sidekick who is competant.
11. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
12. The Jacket
    Distressingly straightforward -- for a film that starts off so promisingly like a new Jacob's Ladder or Memento, it settles down rather quickly into a quasi-police procedural with characters who are far too accepting of their incredibal surroundings. Brody and Knightley give their all, but the plot isn't there to catch them.

Plain Seats, A Couple of 40W Speakers
13. Madagascar
14. Robots
    Imagine if someone saw Monsters, Inc., looked at the door sequence and said, "Hey, we should make a whole movie out of this!". You'd have a pretty close approximation of Robots, which goes a long way to proving that too much action is boring. Robin Williams is the only bright spot here and if you don't like free-form Robin, than there's really nothing here for you.
15. The Longest Yard
16. Kung Fu Hustle
