This fact has slowly been donning on me: Ratatouille is a great, great movie. The first time I watched the CG animation I concluded that it was a terrific Pixar film. I should not have bracketed it, however, as a second viewing of the animation in theaters reminded me just how important a great story is.

With a year of huge summer blockbusters that have all been called 'flawed' at least once, it comes as no surprise that Rotten Tomatoes has discovered that Ratatouille is not only a great Pixar achievement, but (so far) the best film of 2007.

Ratatouille Top Film of Mid 2007

RottenTomatoes has put up a great mid-year report of the top 25 films for 2007:

1. Ratatouille
2. Away from Her
3. Once
4. Knocked Up
5. Hot Fuzz
6. Sicko
7. The Host
8. Zodiac
9. Waitress
10. The Lookout
11. The Wind That Shakes the Barley
12. The Italian
13. The Hoax
14. Red Road
15. Breach
16. Bridge to Terabithia
17. The Namesake
18. After the Wedding
19. Grindhouse
20. An Unreasonable Man
21. God Grew Tired of Us
22. Starter for 10
23. Into Great Silence
24. Live Free or Die Hard
25. Paris, Je T'aime

As you might have guessed, the rankings are based on the Tomatometer, which creates a score based on critics' reviews.

I was happy to see both Knocked Up and Hot Fuzz also in the top five list -- Hot Fuzz is one of my favs of the year -- but was disappointed to see that 300 didn't make the cut. I mean, come on, the film did exactly what it was trying to do -- a glorious graphic novel on film.

If you have yet to see Ratatouille, now might be the time to do so.
