Best 5 Movies of 2003

2003 was truly a banner year for films.  Looking back on the year, it's hard to imagine how so many good movies came out & how, even after the year was over, the good movies for 2003 kept on coming.  It was actually difficult to pare this list down to five, which may explain why it took me until June 2004 to actually complete it.  Dogville probably would've made this list if their closing credits had different musical accompaniment.  Big Fish also narrowly missed this list.  Here are five movies that should make everyone wonder how on Earth The Return of the King even got nominated for an Oscar, let alone won 75 of them...

Pirates of the Caribbean:  The Curse of the Black Pearl
Finding Nemo
Mystic River
Love Actually
Matchstick Men
