Top Ten Movies of 2006
« on: November 10, 2006, 07:53:00 PM »
Everybody give your top ten of 06.

"My" Top Ten of 2006

1.Running Scared
2.Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
3.Night Watch
4.Beerfest
5.Over the Hedge
6.Glory Road
7.Final Destination 3
8.Grandma's Boy
9.Scary Movie 4
10.The Benchwarmers

Not the greatest year for movies so far, but I usually wait for Dvd, so there's plenty more to come (hopefully)

Benchwarmers and Grandma's boy on your top ten?

I refuse to speak to you anymore.   ;D

Hmm.  My top ten would probably be something like (and in no particular order):

1. Marie Antoinette
2. Monster House
3. Brick
4. Grizzly Man
5. Inside Man
6. Superman Returns

...

And I'd have to stop there.  There's bunch of films not out yet (or that I haven't seen) over here that I'd really like to check out before completely committing myself: Hollywoodland, The Prestige, Borat, Casino Royale...

Let me preface this list by noting that I've only SEEN 10 movies made this year. (I checked!) But I enjoyed them all!

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (It won the Box office this year for a reason.)
2) X3 - Had some great lines and awesome action and that's all I ask of my X-Men movies. :^)
3) Superman Returns - I was expecting a departure from the original Superman movies and was pleasantly surprised.
4) V for Vendetta - It was a good adaptation of a good comic book and it was very thought-provoking.
5) Ultimate Avengers - Too much fun to be legal. :^)
6) Cars - Pixar should be the only company that gets to do CGI.
7) Flushed away - OK. Pixar and Aardman. :^)
8 ) Snakes on a Plane - The movie delivered everything the title promised. No Riffaholic should live their life without seeing it at least once. :^)
9) Ultimate Avengers II - Still cool, but not as cool as the first.
10) Silent Hill - Nicely creepy.

I don't think I've actually seen 10 new movies this year. And if I did, I'm sure I can't think of 10 good ones.

Dude, I love the Avengers and the Ultimates, but the Ultimate Avengers movies suck hard. Bad dialogue, weak voice acting, stiff animation.

My crap of the year includes:
1. Silent Hill
2. Monster House
3. V for Vendetta
4. Ultraviolet
5. Mission Impossible 3
6. BloodRyane
7. Date Movie
8. Dave Chapell's Block Party
9. The Hill's Have Eyes
10. Larry the Cable Guy

Movies on the fringe of being crap
Hostel
X3

You don't have to look hard for good movies:

1. Brick - the only movie I can recommend to friends.  If you haven't seen this, rent this right now.
2. The Decent - I am not a fan of horror movies, but this scared the crap out of me.
3. The Departed
4. Monster House
5. Little Miss Sunshine
6. Harsh Times - I can't help thinking that Christian Bale will be the best actor of our generation
7. Superman Returns
8. Clerks II
9. V for Vendetta
10. Borat

Honorable mentions go to Over the Hedge, Talledega Nights, and The Prestige.  There is a lot I haven't seen, and I expect to put Casino Royale, Tenacious D, The Fountain, and Pan's Labyrinth somewhere on this list.  And I really can't rate crap because I usually do not make this mistake until I see it on Netflix, but The Da Vinci Code was pretty bad.
Anytime someone offers you 10,000 to 1 odds, you take it.
Lets just say if John Mellancamp ever wins an Oscar, I'll be a rich man.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought Dead Man's Chest sucked hard. Everything that was new and exciting about the Curse Of The Black Pearl getting rehashed does not a sequel make.

The Departed (everything about this movie was great)
Borat (incredibly funny and uncomfortable)
Brick (brilliant concept)
Pirates 2 (alot of fun to watch)
Clerks 2 (love Kevin Smith's work)
X-Men 3 (not as good as the second one but better than the first)
The DaVinci Code (i like the book and the movie was a good adaptation)
Miami Vice (i thought it was cool and well done)
Superman Returns (could've been alot worse. i enjoyed it)
Scary Movie 4 (i'm a sucker for parodies)
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!
