2005 film reviews

For those of you who read Spanish and are interested in films, my suspicious friend has posted a list of short reviews for all the movies he saw in 2005.


  • Many thanks for the link, but I must clarify something: the movie reviews I posted refer not to all the films I saw in 2005, only to the ones that were shown in Argentina in 2005 at movie theatres. The list doesn't include films I saw in 2005 at movie theatres that were originally premiered in Argentina in another year (for example, old films like "Quadrophenia") nor films I saw in 2005 at movie festivals that haven't had an official release here (like "Silver city"). It does include films I saw on TV or cinema in past years but were released here in 2005 and it doesn't include films I saw on TV. To summarize: the reviews include all the films I saw that were shown in commercial cinema releases in Argentina in 2005 and only in that year (whether I saw them in theatres or on TV).
    If the list included all films I saw in 2005 (as the blogger claimed), there would be 220 movies instead of 71.
    Hey, I'm not crazy, it's just statistics... Thanks again for the publicity!

  • Yes, I knew that, but I couldn't think of a short way to say it in English (a translation for "estrenos") and so I just left it like that, thinking that anyway anyone who clicked on the link and read your post would understand. I confess that I was half-expecting that you would correct me...
