Quite frankly I haven't seen 10 good movies yet but here's where I'm at so far:

1. United 93-(Incredible, brutally honest, agenda-less filmmaking. One of the most visceral and uncomfortable yet powerful experiences I've ever had in a theater).

2. Superman Returns-(I know some people thought it dull, I found elegant and epic)

3. Cars-(Pixar can do no wrong)

4. Stranger than Fiction- (Good and original but could have been cast better. Queen Latifah and Maggie Gyllennaahaaalahallenal didn't work for me).

5. Nacho Libre-(Kind of a guilty pleasure here I know. What can I say, I like Jables.)

Severely disappointed by:

1. Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Man's Chest- (I loved the first one but this was everything that I feared "Curse of the Black Pearl" would be. They succeeded at making a Pirate movie boring, not since "Cuttthroat Island" has that happened. What a mess.)

2. V for Vendetta-(Portman was good but this movie offended me on so many levels I don't know where to begin. Amoral garbage.)

Hopeful for:

1. For Your Consideration

2. Apocolypto

3. Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny

Here's the movies I liked a lot this year, that I've seen:

1. The Departed
2. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
3. The Descent
4. Cars
5. Thank You For Smoking
6. Monster House
7. Borat
8. The Hills Have Eyes

Uh...I haven't seen too many other movies this year.  I liked Mission Impossible 3 and Over The Hedge, was fairly ambivalent about X-Men 3, didn't care for Superman Returns, and found The Proposition intriguing, but I can't say I LIKED it.  V for Vendetta was pretty good.  That's about it.

Wow, I don't think I've actually _seen_ ten new films this year.

Silent Hill
Dead Man's Chest
A Scanner Darkly
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance
Clerks II

'The Descent' would get a vote but it got it's U.K. release last year I think.

Let's see:
The Departed
Science of Sleep
Neil Young: Heart of Gold
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

That's all I've got- I mean, I liked V for Vengeance, but it was too flawed to feel like a top ten kind of movie. I'm pretty sure all of these would be top ten no matter how many of the extant movies I caught.

I'm hoping the lack of Thank You For Smoking on most of these lists is because you didn't see it. Excellent film.

I take my top ten of the year pretty seriously, and 4 or 5 of them usually come out on November & December, so I'll be posting my top ten after that.  A rough sneak peek at mine will probably contain:

Mission: Impossible 3
Casino Royale
The Departed
Lady in the Water
Heated Seats iRiffs: Touched by an Angel | Marked for Death | Runaway | Heated Shorts (shorts collection)

I don't normally see alot of movies, so I only have a top 5.

1. Pirates 2 ( fun, and overall good movie. The Kraken rocks BTW ;D )
2. Cars ( probably my favourite Pixar movie next to the Incredibles )
3. X3 ( somewhat underrated movie. It had great action, and I overall enjoyed it )
4. Snakes on a Plane ( nuff' said )
5. World Trade Center ( nothing to write home about, but a good movie overall )

My pick for the worst movie of the year goes to V for Vendetta. I honestly don't know why so many people liked this film. It was boring, not fun to watch, not enough action to make the $$ for viewing it in Imax worth it, and the lesbian scene just made things worse. Very overrated.
I am Ambassador Phantom, from the planet Krankor! I am rapidly approaching your planet... in the warship, which you have just seen. I will arrive tomorrow night at precisely eight o'clock. At that time I shall make my wishes known to you. You will obey them... or die! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

Havent seen much but

V for Vendetta ( not as good as the book, But still one hell of a movie)
X-men 3 ( Sure it wasnt the greatest of the x-men movies. But it was an enjoyable movie.)
POTC: Dead man's Chest ( Just a fun movie)

Movies i hated.

Superman Returns (boring, dull, & Drawn out. Not to mention alot of its plot comes from the 1978 classic. Give me Christopher Reeve or even george reeve. Sure Routh was pretty good Superman. Well if Superman was a wimpy mime who spyed & cryed over his ex. What a Sappy Requel. O.k. Ill stop ranting. But really the movie wasnt that good. Especially compare to Superman the movie.).

Just so you know
Sequel + Remake = Requel
You have the most eccentric capitalization I've ever seen. Not the worst, by any means, but strange, as though you'd gotten used to typing on a telegraph or something. Anyway...

I just saw Reservoir Dogs in a theater. Does that mean I can add it to my list?

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny

The only film I saw this year that met and exceeded my expectations.

Honorable mentions:
Clerks II (unnecessary, but fun)
Little Miss Sunshine (too much hype)
Borat (way too much hype)
Slither (for making b-movies fun again)
The Departed (for being the only Scorcese film I've enjoyed since Taxi Driver)
Night of the Living Dead (the original; surprised the Hell out of me by being so good)
Snowhead the Blue Reindeer gave me all the presents in the world.

Not too much that screamed at me this year to see. I mostly enjoyed the classics at home.

1. Casino Royale
2. Superman Returns
3. Monster House
4. Slither
5. Clerks 2

I'm looking forward to United 93 & Apocalypto though.
