Favorite Movies 2006

This comes a little late, but I've been thinking about the movies that 2006 had to offer. Nothing extremely groundbreaking or brilliant, but some overall memorable films that tackled some issues, had some fun, and brought the action. Here are my favorites:

1. Little Miss Sunshine
2. Thank You For Smoking
3. Casino Royale
4. An Inconvenient Truth/Who Killed The Electric Car
5. Inside Man

Honorable Mention
The Matador
Lady in the Water
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Movies that I missed that might have made the list.
The Departed
The Illusionist
The Presige
Stranger Than Fiction

wow! we have the same top three (but in a different order - Thank You for Smoking was my fav movie of the years - smart, funny, poignant, short and to the point, well acted, great tunes, unforgettable

Of all you pictured of mentioned, and I was able to see them all, I agree with almost everything. I would say that of all of them, I would put The Prestige (aka Batman vs. Wolverine) at the top.

Good list--I agree, though, that you need to check out both Stranger Than Fiction and the Illusionist; they were fantastic! Great acting, great story, the works.
