List Rules Vote up the movies that came out in 2005 that you still enjoy today.

It's time to wish a happy birthday to all the movies turning 15 this year. Without a doubt, 2005 was an incredible year for cinema. Blockbuster sequels like Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire dominated the box office. Meanwhile, Capote, Brokeback Mountain, and Good Night and Good Luck made waves throughout awards season. All of them got audiences excited - and talking about what they saw. 

What are your favorite movies that came out in 2005? If you're a comedy fan, you probably loved Wedding Crashers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. If action is more your thing, your pulse probably raced during War of the Worlds, Batman Begins, and Sin City. Drama buffs surely admired Walk the Line. And if you were a kid in 2005, you most likely have vivid memories of seeing Madagascar or Chicken Little. Some of you might even have a particular favorite that flew under the radar of most audiences. We see you, fans of Broken Flowers and Into the Blue
