Movies Of The Year: 2006

It’s about time for a list of the best films of the year so far. Cinecast did it a couple weeks ago, and Ebert and Dumbass did it last week (get well Roger!). Most of these films I’ve already written about here on TINAB (you can find them using the search box at the top of the page (is that new?), the ones I haven’t will be featured in future installments of the Movie Roundup. This is just a list.

By the way, I’m using the imdb dates for films, so there’s a number of movies that were widely released for the first time in 2006 that are on my 2005 list and won’t be listed here. Some of those are: Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, Brick, Thank You For Smoking, V For Vendetta and Tristram Shandy.

10. The DaVinci Code
9. X-Men: The Last Stand
8. Friends With Money
7. Nacho Libre
6. Mission: Impossible 3
5. United 93
4. Inside Man
3. Cars
2. The Break-Up
1. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

By the way, it’s not #1 simply because random people insist on telling me I look like Johnny Depp, though that is all too true. It really is a great film, a classic swashbuckler in the vein of Indiana Jones And the Temple Of Doom or The Adventures Of Robin Hood.

The Unseen movies list for this year is pretty good already, even without The Proposition, a 2005 film:

A Scanner Darkly
A Prairie Home Companion
Superman Returns
Day Watch
Akeelah And The Bee
Art School Confidential
The Sentinel
The Omen
Poseidon
Over The Hedge
An Inconvenient Truth
American Dreamz
