After a week off due to stomach oogies we're back with another round of our "Siri Says" series, in which I ask my phone to pick a number between 1 and 100 and then I choose my favorite five or so movies from the corresponding year. This time around the lady went low and gave me the number 3, and so The Movies of 2003 are where we're at. This works out well because it's a couple of years before we started this here blog so we didn't make a public list but we were still fully immersed in movie-going all the same. So I have real opinions! Imagine that!
There are a great batch of horror films from this year (including one of my favorites of all-time) and if I'd been in a different mood I could've made just a list of those, but I mixed it up a bit. And this is the year that contains the single Coen Brothers movie I have never seen! From what I've heard it wouldn't make the list if I had seen it (and I've put it off for just that reason) but still.
