So far I'm adding Pursuit Of Happyness to my list, it is so inspiring and moving

I want to see Children Of Men- it got 4 stars in my local paper and they never give 4 stars. It's only playing at one theater in the city but hopefuly it will be out in the burbs soon. I worship Clive Owen.

I just watched A Sanner Darkly on DVD. This was seriously one of the best films of the year. I really regret missing this in theatres.

The retroscoping art-style is simply mind-blowing. I couldn't help but just stare at the film in a close-to-drooling state. Simply beautiful.

The story, adapted from a Philip K. Dick novel of the same name, it a twisting, trippy narcotics/paranoia science fiction plot, highlighted by some fantastic performances by Keanu Reeves, Wynona Ryder, Robert Downy Jr, Woody Harelson and Rory Cochrane. Richard Linklater did a fantastic job with this spiritual and artistic follow-up to his early masterpiece Waking Life.

Great, great film. The dialogue was often hilarious, and as the film escalates, the line between reality and halucination becomes increasingly blurred. Bloody fantastic overall. Everyone should see this. Consider me wholly impressed.

Robert Downey Jr. completely owned that movie, so did Rory Cochrane.

Keanu was better than usual and Winona Ryder was brilliant as always.

The animation was friggin' amazing, that was reason enough to see it.

The only downside is the movie drags in a middle and Woody Harrelson's character is annoying as shit.

Still a good movie like Lancemc said.

I agree, Downey's performance was probably the highlight of the film. He's an amazing actor, and this was even one of his better performances I've seen. I didn't find Woody's character annoying at all though. I loved the fucked-up chemistry between his character and Downey's. They were my favorite scenes in the movie.

finally saw Little Miss Sunshine on saturday
and I've watched it twice since then!
I had wanted to go watch it at the theater
but missed it since it was only out for a week
well since then I had lost interest and brushed it off as yet another quirky, indie film (which, well it ...was) ..
I'm so glad I did watch it after all, I seriously loved the movie, it had a great array of emotions throughout.... not to mention it was funny as fuck. Steve Carrel redeemed himself from the atrocious 40 year old virgin, his character was brilliant.. as was the rest of the cast.

This movie is a must see

I gotta agree. Little Miss Sunshine was absolutely fantastic. I wish it had been an hour longer it was so good. Carrel was really amazing in that role. Him and the grandfather gave me so many laughs, and the family dancing in the end was one of the most awkwardly, wonderfully, heart-warmingly halarious scenes I've seen in years.

I gotta disagree about the 40 Year Old Virgin though. I thought that was probably the single best comedy to come out in years. It had me in stitches the entire duration of the film. Different strokes I guess. Oh well.

^loved both movies. Everytime 40 Year Old Virgin is playing on cable, I tune in (if Maddy's not around) and laugh my arse off. Even at 2:00am in bed while hubby's asleep.

I tend to think that the more sobbing I do in the cinema, the more brilliant the film is So, with that in mind, my very favourite films this year were

Brokeback Mountain (because it was so heartbreakingly good)

and

the New World (because it was so extraordinarily beautiful)

I haven't actually seen many movies this year, but I also really liked A History of Violence and The Squid and the Whale.

Really looking forward to seeing Babel and Little Children.

I'm adding "Volver" to my list,

No wonder the female cast won the collective "Best Actress" award at Cannes, this film had such great performances and memorable characters. And Penelope Cruz was a revelation - vibrant, alive and looking like the Spanish Sophia Loren. She should avoid Hollywood like plague and just stick to her native tongue.

I just saw Little Miss Sunshine and V For Vendetta this week. Both should be considered for best of 2006.

Ah balls. I always forget V for Vendetta actually released here in 2006!! It's seriously one of my all-time favorite films if not my personal #1. I didn't put it on the list because I thought it came out in 2005. I know the film was originally set to release on NOvember 5th 2005, but because of the London Bombings they pushed it back.

In that case, V was definitely my favorite movie of the year!

My all time favorite movie list is probably something like this:

1. Pulp Fiction
2. V for Vendetta
3. The Shawshank Redemption

BUT, all 3 of those are constantly shifting the top 3 spots. But those are definitely my 3 favorite films.

Also, did the 40 Year Old Virgin come out in 2006? If it did, I'll also add that to my list for the year.

"She was a hoe...Fo show!"

Virgin came out July/August of '05.

There's another Judd Apatow movie coming out in '07 though: Knocked Up.

The guys who played Cal and David are in it plus Izzy from Grey's Anatomy.

I've been reading about the test screening and I've heard it's as funny as The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
