Your Top 10 Movies So Far... (2006)

With a few more months left in the year, I thought it would be fun to see everyone's top ten list of movies released this year. There may be some question as to whether or not a movie was released this year or the previous year (i.e. limited release), but that's ok. Here's my list:

1. United 93
2. An Inconvenient Truth
3. World Trade Center
4. World's Fastest Indian
5. Miami Vice
6. Tsotsi
7. V For Vendetta
8. Superman Returns
9. The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
10. Mission Impossible III

of course, the studios are saving some of their better movies for the Oscar season, so my list will undoubtedly change. see sig below.

Um, we have this thread already. But here we go:

Top 10 of 2006 (as of right now)

  1. V for Vendetta
  2. Over the Hedge
  3. Little Miss Sunshine
  4. Clerks II
  5. Inside Man
  6. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
  7. Miami Vice
  8. United 93
  9. The Break-Up
  10. Thank You For Smoking


I haven't seen SoaP, but that could easily crack #9 or #10 as I wasn't so hot on those two films.

And no, I didn't think United 93 was a bad movie. I just didn't enjoy it as much as the other ones. It was a well-made film, but I'm not going to rank it higher just because it's a movie about 9/11.

I've not been overly impressed with the movies this year. I'd say numbers 1 & 2 on my list were truly great films. I got a decent amount of enjoyment out of each of numbers 3 - 9, but I can't really justify a number 10 though. There are about 5 or 6 movies that would be tied for that position and none of them stand out enough to make the list.

1. United 93
2. The Proposition
3. V for Vendetta
4. Slither
5. Thank You for Smoking
6. A Prairie Home Companion
7. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
8. Superman Returns
9. The Hills Have Eyes

Haven't seen much from '06:

Superman Returns - 3/4
Lady in the Water - 3/4
Clerks 2 - 3/4
The Descent - 3/4
X-Men 3 - 2/4
Hills Have Eyes - 2/4
16 Blocks - 1/4
Underworld: Evolution - 1/4
Annapolis - 1/4
The Benchwarmers - 1/4
Freedomland - 0/4

0=Awful 1=Poor 2=Average 3=Good 4=Great

On DVD from other years:

12 Angry Men - 4/4
Before Sunrise - 3/4
Boondock Saints - 3/4
Bottle Rocket - 3/4
Charade - 3/4
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang - 3/4
Planes, Trains, & Automobiles - 3/4
Princess Bride - 3/4
Tape - 3/4
Old School - 2/4

Those were the blind buys I liked and kept. Too many bad ones to list. The ratings feel right at the moment but there isn't exactly a lot of time or thought put into them.

Fully expect this to change, as I don't find it particularly strong and I haven't seen all the movies I've wanted to see that have already come out this yar.

I don't think I've seen enough films (about 28)to adequately prepare a Top 10 so I'll just top 5 it, till Dec 31st, when I've seen everything.

1-PotC: DMC
2-V for Vendetta
3-Cars
4-A Scanner Darkly
4-MI3
