Katie Byron's Top Movies of 2006

1) The Science of Sleep—This movie is one of my favorites of all
time—It is beautiful and deep and so creative—It's like Eternal
Sunshine, but crazier and more surreal.
2) Stranger Than Fiction
3) Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious
Nation of Kazakhstan
4) Scoop
5) Little Miss Sunshine
6) For Your Consideration
7) X-Men: The Last Stand
8) Friends With Money—This movie ended, it seemed, in the middle—I
usually dislike lack of closure, but this ending really made me
think—I definitely left wanting more, but maybe that's a good
thing—Overall it made a very interesting comment on society.
9) The Break-Up
10) Superman Returns

I wonder if I saw ten new movies this year. Regardless, I'd have to put "The Departed" at the top and "The Last Kiss" at the bottom.

i'm surprised you even saw the last kiss. it didn't even make my list. but yeah, i think those 10 were out of the 12 or 13 movies i saw this year. weird how i used to see multiple moves every weekend. no more.

i wanted to see the departed, but never got a chance. i'll have to rent it.

The Departed is a great movie. However, in terms of "serious" hollywood movies this year, The Prestige blows it away. No joke.

Katie, I wasn't feeling For Your Consideration...just wasn't doing it for me despite how much I like other Chris Guest joints. But that's just me hatin' again.

I should post my movie list, I acutally saw quite a few this year.

Kathryn J said...

yeah, i also heard the prestige was good but never got a chance to see that one either.

i didn't think for your consideration was as good as some christopher guest movies, but i liked it more than a mighty wind, the last one, and it still made me laugh quite a bit.

post your list, daniel.
