2000 MOVIE RECAP



     Below is a recap of the 2000 movie ratings.  Erin Brockovich (19) and Mission Impossible II (17) were the
movies most seen by our 24 raters.  Finding Forrester (92.3) and Erin Brockovich (92.1) were the highest
rated movies by our raters.  Four of the five nominated movies for best picture were in our top 11 ratings.
In past years most of the nominated movies were not ranked that high by our raters. Listed below are top
20 movies seen based on # of times seen, top 20 movies based on rating, top 20 movies based on rating
after dropping lowest score, Academy Award nominees, worst 10 movies of the year,  Top five movies of
our 13 honor roll raters and the top 10 movie goers.  Thirteen different movies were ranked # 1 (or tied for
first) by our 13 raters.  Finding Forrester and Erin Brockovich made it to the top three times and Gladiator,
Space Cowboys and Traffic made it twice. Our 24 raters rated 154 movies 734 times.  Fifty-nine movies
were rated 5 or more times.
      Thanks to all who participated in the ratings this year.  I would send you all a free pass to the
Academy Awards but the Academy didn't see fit to award me any tickets!
