But I live in the sticks burbs and it never played at my theater or anywhere close enough. I could go into the city just to see a movie but I never do unless it's free or someone else is paying I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD

hmmm ... no particular order, and most of the films i want to see i haven't yet (january is when i watch movies), but here's some i thought were great:

Jesus Camp
Little Miss Sunshine
Borat
Cache
The Departed
Superman Returns (a bit less than the sum of it's parts, but very nostalgic and his rescuing of the airplane in the beginning was the most thrilling 15 minutes of cinema all year)

can't wait to see: Dreamgirls, Volver, Little Children, The Queen, Letters from Iwo Jima, Half Nelson, Babel ... gosh, going to be a busy January

OK - my top ten (on planes and just due to being bored I've seen shitloads this year.)

1. Superman Returns - phenomenally entertaining. Storyline is weak, but it has everything you want in a popcorn movie - excellent effects, great stunts - and it's ace to have Supes back!

2. Casino Royale - just brilliant.

3. World Trade Centre (Center) - I will rate this one above United 93 simply because United 93 (while by far the far superior film) was an emotionally devastating film, whereas Oliver Stone's subdued, yet respectful take on what happened at Ground Zero affected me more - the crushed hope, the ultimate immense tragedy distilled to the tale of two people - I felt a bit manipulated, but still walked away with a better sense of the enormity of it all in regards to the people there. I can't quite word what I'm trying to say...

4. United 93

5. An Inconvenient Truth - well made, well presented, not 100% convinced it's as dire as Al wants me to believe it is...

6. Memoirs Of A Geisha - no where near as good as the book, but still a beautifully made movie. Gong Li and Michelle Yeoh are brilliant.

7. Little Miss Sunshine - just related to it so much.

8. Rent - (didn't get release here in Oz until March 2006) regardless of how Chris Columbus' hatchet job played out, you can't deny the power of Jon Larson's music. And Rosario as a drug addled stripper - H-O-T!

9. The Devil Wears Prada - I cant place her name - but the girl who played Miranda's other assistant (not Anen Hathaway) is brilliant. And Meryl of course.

10. Pirates Of The Carribean - Dead Man's Chest - just top fun. Stupid as all hell, but fun.

Well, I just watched Little Miss Sunshine, and I must say, it's a wonderful film. Not sure what it was exactly. Parts of it were out-of-this-world-hilarious, and others were absolutely heartbreaking. Overall, it leaves you with the impression that you just saw something truely special. It still needs some time to fully digest, but I'd reccoment this movie to anyone with a family! Haha.
