I just didn't see enough movies to list a Top 10 this year, but I have to mention that I think that three of the best fantasy genre pictures of the last twenty five years were released in 2005: BATMAN BEGINS , REVENGE OF THE SITH and KING KONG. On the basis of those three films alone, I think that 2005 was a very good year for fans of cinema of the fantastic.
