2006 Top 10 Movie Lists

Recommended Posts

It's been a GREAT year for movies... so it's now time to make your top 10 lists and to start thinking about Oscars night. In descending order, my favorite movies of 2006 are...

10. The Proposition

9. Tideland

8. The Prestige

7. The Departed

6. Rocky Balboa

5. Apocalypto

4. Pan's Labyrinth

3. Children of Men

2. V for Vendetta

1. The Fountain

The Departed seems to be getting a TON of industry buzz already, so it may finally be time for Scorsese to collect his far-overdue Oscar. IMO, The Fountain really deserves to win every award - even the ones it's not qualified for... but I'm well aware that I'm in the minority on that, so I'll cope. If you have the chance to see any of the above movies on the big screen - do it. Do it now.

It's great that I didn't haveto use any pretentious politically-charged crap to round out my top ten this year - movies like Babel, Blood Diamond, and An Inconvenient Truth. I only regret that Little Miss Sunshine didn't quite make the cut. It falls in at #11 on my list.

I agree on most of what I have seen on your list.

I thought the Departed was a brilliant film , the best I saw this year, but i felt the Fountain was too ambitious and while stunning, was flawed. I have to include an Inconvienient Truth, because as a Doc, it worked.You justhave to ignore the politics. Just like respecting and loving Birth of a Nation, as groundbreaking achievement in film, while despising the hate it espoused.

I also felt Miami Vice was more praiseworthy than its critical repsonse indicated, Michael Mann's visual style continues to amaze me and as some of you may know, I hate the hollywood ending and he avoids them like the plague.

While I thought parts of An Inconvenient Truth were excellent, it really only had about 45 minutes worth of actualy on-topic content. The rest was Al Gore autobiography and political boo-hooing. It's the only documentary I actually saw this year, so I couldn't really say if it was the best. There's always those great films that sneak by unnoticed.

I haven't seen most of the movies on your list, except V for Vendetta, and if that's your #2, then I'm really worried, because I didn't like that movie at all. I'd place V for Vendetta on the same shelf as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Superman Returns (and to a certain extent, The Fantastic Four), which were so-so in my book.

I did see Casino Royale which was great, and that's not even on your list.

I guess that proves that different people see different movies even when they watch the same ones.

I just saw Half Nelson and have to add it to my list. Ryan Gosling is one to watch..

Half Nelson is getting a lot of attention right now, but my problem is that I've seen this exact same movie a MILLION TIMES. Different cast, same bloody story... this time with a little hint of House for good measure. Bleh.
