V For Vendetta - 4.5/5
The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - 4/5
Mission Impossible III - 4/5
Superman Returns - 4/5
Casino Royale - 3.5/5
X-Men: The Last Stand - 3/5
The Da Vinci Code - 3/5

Of course, the majority of these are done by memory, and I'm only counting the movies I actually saw in the cinema this year. So no illegal Snakes on a Plane DVDs were counted in the making of this post.

Yep.

had to update list as Rocky Balboa is #1
 
1 - CRANK -- Best action movie of 2006! Non-stop action, hot girls, funny scenes, imaginative screenwork, muscular men, a lot of weapons , and the chinese s***. 15/10

2 - V for Vendetta -- The movie that should be watched with a notepad and a pen to quote every word out of V's mouth. 10/10

3 - FnF: Tokyo Drift -- The only movie this year that made me feel like I had to run faster, I had to drive faster, whatever I do I had to do it faster , and extra points for the very existence of Vin Diesel 8/10

4 - Hard Candy -- I thought my dick was getting cut down! Such an amazing role playing.Awful experience. But that's the idea of the whole movie.F***ing amazing job 8/10

5 - Superman Returns -- Try believing in that a guy that's stronger than anything you can imagine, a guy that's faster than a space shuttle, a guy that can stop a bullet with his Iris without getting hurt, a guy that throws red hot rays out of his eyes, and a guy that's acting like the most stupid journalist on earth ,and all these guys are the same person! It's hard isn't it?
Well someone made us believe Superman can exist!! 20/10

1. Clerks 2
2. X-Men 3
3. Snakes on a Plane
4. Crank
5. V for Vendetta

Havent seen Talladega Nights or Borat yet but i know if i had they'd be in the top 5
 
1. V For Vendetta
One of the most moving, passionate, and empowering movies ever. Weaving and Portman gave flawless performances. 10/10.

2. Little Miss Sunshine
The best "slice of life" movie I've ever seen. I'd compare it to wannabe flicks like Lost In Translation and Sideways, but they really don't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence. 10/10

3. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
Ridiculously entertaining and actually had a very clever plot. The "Pirates" franchise has set the bar quite high for all future action/adventure films this decade. 10/10.

4. The Matador
I was floored by this film. An incredible character drama that both Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear deserve Oscars for. Especially Brosnan. That was one of the best performances I've seen since Ray. The only thing that took away from the film was the fairly regular barrage of pointless sex scenes that could've been more tastefully done. 9/10.

5. Superman Returns
A good, frequently great, occasionally fantastic film that delivered on many fronts but disapointed on a couple of them too. But it's still and 9/10.

6. Lucky Number SLevin
A wonderful dark crime comedy with a terrific all-star cast and absolutely superb dialogue. The dialogue and repartee alone makes this film worth seeing. 9/10

Everything else I saw this year:

7. Mission: Impossible III - 8.5/10

8. X-Men: The Last Stand - 8/10

9. Casino Royale - 8/10

10. Chidren of Men - 8/10

11. The Da Vinci Code - 8/10

12. Clerks II - 7.5/10

13. Crank - 7.5/10

14. Beowulf and Grendel - 7/10

15. The Prestige - 7/10

16. 16 Blocks - 7/10

17. The Illusionist - 6.5/10

18. Inside Man - 6/10

19. Lady in the Water - 6/10

20. Borat - 6/10

21. Scary Movie 4 - 4.5/10


Jackass: Number Two was absolutely hysterical, but it's not really a movie so I'm not going to stand it up to the others.

I don't know what it is, but I suddenly feel compelled to see this movie now.

1. Children of Men (11/10) - Brilliant. Important. Relevant. This film will shape Science Fiction in film for the next decade.
2. Clerks II - (10/10) - Funniest Movie I've seen all year
3. The Science of Sleep - (10/10) -Most Moving Film of the Year. Beautifully acted and depicted. Just fantastic all around
4. Little Miss Sunshine - (10/10) - The Second Most Moving Film I've seen all year, definitely Oscar-Worthy
5. The Departed - (10/10) - Leonardo Dicaprio was amazing in this. The whole cast, actually, was amazing. Scorsese's best work since Goodfellas.
6. Snakes on a Plane - (9.5/10) - Most Entertaining Film I've seen all year
7. The Devil Wears Prada - (9/10) - Anne Hathaway wins me over in this film... And Meryl Streyp might get an Oscar nod out of her portrayal of the Editor of Runway (aka - Fictional Vogue)
8. Casino Royale - (9/10) - Number One action movie of the year and a fantastic new starting point for the Bond series.
9. The Prestige - (9/10) - Extraordinary dark and awesome. Plus I am in love with Hugh Jackman times a million.
10. Marie Antoinette (8.5/10) - One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
11. Pirates of the Carribean 2 - (8/10) - Great Fantasy-Action. Very Excited for the sequel and more Geoffry Rush
12. Monster House - (8/10) - Only loses points for not being directed at my age group, and thus loses some of the enjoyment factor. This is the best animated film of the year. Hands Down.
13. Superman Returns - (8/10) - A truly wonderful film, albeit I hope for a little more out of the sequel
14. Dreamgirls - (8/10) - A Thoroughly fun and moving Movie with great performances. I only wish it had been a little better constructed as a film...
15. Happy Feet - (7.5/10) - Fun liberally biased Global Warming Environmentalist film about dancing penguins and loving yourself for who you are. And Robin Williams rocks.
16. Over the Hedge - (7/10) - Some of the jokes fall flat, but this is a damn funny movie with a lot of heart and Bruce Willis playing the Batman of the Raccoon world
17. Thank You For Smoking - (7/10) - Funny as hell.
18. Borat - (7/10) - Laugh out loud funny throughout, but nowhere near as good as everyone wanted the world to believe. The entire film was a gimmick and while Cohen is a tremendously talented actor, I'm eager to see whether his talents extend beyond shock-comedy.
19. Cars - (6/10) - Formulaic, but well handled.
20. Jesus Camp - (6/10) - Scary in a very good documentary kind of way
21. X-Men: The Last Stand - (6/10) - Entertaining but without much heart.
22. V For Vendetta - (6/10) - It can't top the book. It's too close to it to work as a separate piece of art, and too different not to bug the **** out of me. It fails to get across the same message, and is outdone in every aspect by the comic.
23. Hollywoodland - (6/10) - Close to being good, but some of the acting and dialogue seemed like it would fit better in a made for TV movie.
24. Art School Confidential - (5/10) - It's good, but not Spectacular by any means. It's funnier than Ghost World, and has a better, and more coherent plot. But those things don't make up for the heart the film lacks.
25. The Da Vinci Code - (4/10) - Boring. Its a good book, but the movie is just long and boring.

---

Here's my Final List of 2006. Children of Men goes here, because I saw it before 2007, despite the wide-release date having been New Years. All in all a good year for movies.
