I'm going to touch up on a little more recent, make my own rating and intro and such. No sites used, Im using my own words!

Blood diamond: Blood diamond is about the diamond trade from Sierra Leone and (in a way) Libeeria. The government was trying to take control of diamond mines so they could be exported well. This film is about the rebels, whom went into towns shooting innocent people for no reason, burning villages and making younger kids rebels. These younger kids are often to shoot there parents or stuff like this. Not to give away main story or ending, I will stop there.

I personally thought this was one of the best action movies I have seen, it is well directed, acted and played. The thing is, when you watch it, you think it is innacurate, well it is very accurate what these people are doing, there "truthing". This made an impact on me to not... buy diamonds.

Apocalypto: This movie (directed by Mel Gibson) is about Myan culture using human sacrifices, against other myans. It is a treak of one guy who escapes the main empire where his tribe is being slayed.

This movie is the best action movie I have seen, to see how grosume societies can be. Although it is all in subtitles, I suggest you see it.

Borat: borat is a man from Kazykstan who goes to America to film a documnetry about how life is there. Totally uncivilized, borat does many stupid things. IE: try to marry Pamela anderson, Fight a fat naked man.

THis is one of my three favorite movies.

Out of those, I would suggest apocalypto, because it is interesting.


I still haven't forgiven the asians for pearl harbor.

The Departed- If Martin Scorsese doesn't get best picture/best director for this awesome, action packed spy drama, I'll eat my dog.

Thank You For Smoking - Enjoyable, funny, clever movie. It's about a cigarette company's lobbyist, it's a definate must-see, in my opinion.

Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic, spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who'll fight to protect America's right to smoke - even if it kills him - while still remaining a role model for his 12-year-old son.

When he incurs the wrath of a senator bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick's power of "filtering the truth" will be put to the test. As Nick say, "if you want an easy job, go work for the Red Cross."

DVD

Little Miss Sunshine - Dark, Dry comedy. I like Steve Carrell, so I had to check it out. It's about a dysfunctional family trying to get across the country to enter their little girl in a beauty pagent. A lot more funny and entertaining than it sounds :P

Take a hilarious ride with the Hoovers, one of the most endearingly fractured families in comedy history.

Father Richard is deperately trying to sell his motivational success program... with no success. Meanwhile, "pro-honesty" mom Sheryl lends support to her eccentric family, including her depressed brother, fresh out of the hospital after being jilted by his lover. Then there are the younger Hoovers - the 7 year old, would-be beauty queen, Olive, and Dwayne, a Nietzsche-reading teen who has taken a vow of silence. Topping off the family is the foul-mouthed grandfather, whose outrageous behavior recently got him evicted from his retirement home.

When Olive is invited to compete in the "Little Miss Sunshine" pageant in far-off California, the family piles into their rusted-out VW bus to rally behind her-- with riotously funny results.

DVD

The Pursuit of Happyness - Good family film. My dad brought me to see it, and it was pretty good. I thoroughly enjoyed Will Smith's performance :)

Chris Gardner is a bright and talented, but marginally employed salesman. Struggling to make ends meet, Gardner finds himself and his five-year-old son evicted from their San Francisco apartment with nowhere to go. When Gardner lands an internship at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, he and his son endure many hardships, including living in shelters, in pursuit of his dream of a better life for the two of them.

In Theatres

Borat - Hilarious. Offensive. Fantastic. Entertaining. Awesome. Possibly one of the greatest movies I've ever seen, lmao :P
You'll get more enjoyment out of it if you've never seen Da Ali G show (just because all this will be new to you, and therefore, more funny). Go see it if you haven't already!

Borat Sagdiyev, Kazakhstan's sixth most famous man and a leading journalist from the State run TV network, travels from his home in Kazakhstan to the U.S. to make a documentary. On his cross-country road-trip, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences.

In Theatres

And those are basically the 4 movies I loved of 2006.
I've seen others, but those would be the ones I enjoyed the most, hope you like them as much as I did :)

Jackass 2
Clerks II
The pursuit of Happiness
Casino Royale
V for Vendetta
Lady in the water - don't know why I should watch it
History of violence - ditto
New Rocky Movie
Stranger Than Fiction
Blood Diamond
Borat - differing opinions on this one, something makes me think I'll hate it
Snakes on a plane - more opinions on this would be good
Little Miss Sunshine
Pan's Labyrinth
The Departed
Saw 3 (and previous) - dunno, not that much into horror
Lucky Number Sleven - is that a real film, Dave?

I will, I loved that film.
V for Vendetta - The film V for Vendetta is based on the comic book, though it is shortened and very changed (I read the comic, I know). The movie got a 3.5/4, due to the fact reviewers said it contained "too much talking and politics and too little action".
I think this isn't true, there are a good amount of action scenes where V kills a shit load of police and guards with his little set of knives, even though it's 2020ish. Not only that, but it takes place in dictator-controlled Britain, fighting a winning war with America, though that's mentioned briefly in the beginning. Overall, I think this is a movie you have to see.
I explained the film, happy now you lazy bastard?

You forgot to mention that gandalf is the dictator

God no.
The steady decline of M. Night's movies continues...
Especially in this one.

It's funny. If you don't like funny, don't watch it.

I like funny, but can't stand embarassing. The Office and Alan Partridge were critically acclaimed, but I can't watch either of them without wanting to curl up and die

Pirates of the Carribean 2: Dead Man's Chest
Johnny Depp, Bill Nye as Davy Jones--come on. It's an awesome movie with an awesome cast and laughs abundant. ^^

Final Destination 3
Oh boy, this really turned me off of tanning beds. I'm a huge fan of the FD series, and this one creeped me out. A lot. If you're into the "jumpoutofyourseatgoingHOLYSHIT" kind of movies.

Hard Candy
A thriller which I saw with a few of my friends. Made me cringe in one scene, which I won't discuss. It made me go "wtf" at the end, however, it was good. Shows that not all people you talk to on the Internet are completely sane (as we all know ;) ).

Pick of Destiny
I was laughing my ass off when I saw this in theatres. Although it's not released yet, you should seriously check it out when you happen to see it on DVD. Fart humour, Kyle Gass showing his man-bobs, drug humour, a funky-ass mushroom high, yeah. Awesome. :D

She's The Man

Yes its a chick flick. But as guys me and my friends thought it was awesome. Its about a hot girl trynna pass as a boy to play some football. (soccer) Its really funny at some times because it takes alook at male stereotypes.

Basic Instinct 2

Because its sexual. And deep. And its all about mind games. Pretty intense movie. It deserves a watch.

Lucky Number Slevin

This is just pure awesome. THis movie is bettert han the departed imo. Departed is more raw, but this film just has a lot of style and class.

X-Men: The Last Stand

Great movie full stop. Special effects, the story, the characters development. Awesome movie I absoloutley loved it.

Cars

LIKE MY FAVOURITE FILM OF THE YEAR! WATCH IT WITHOUT FAIL!

ITS FUNNY, ITS INSPIRING, ITS ANIMATED, ITS FEEL GOOD, ITS ROMANTIC, ITS DARING, ITS THOUGHT PROVOKING, ITS REVEALING, ITS GOT OWEN WILSON COOLEST GUY IN THE WORLD! WATCH IT.

Superman Returns

Def worth a watch. The story grows as we see our superhero return from his absence. Its just cool . I watched a pirate copy and i still thought it was amazing.

Borat

Definetley worth a watch. even if it is just to see what all the fuss is about. But seriously, that movie had the whole cinema in tears. Very funny! Not funny as in you could watch it over and over and still augh, but very shock value funny. ANd seriously the first time you watch this you will cry with laughter.

Looking back on what came out in 2006, there are only a couple that I wanted to see again. The one that stands out most is Brokeback Mountain. I did not know what to think walking into the theater, walking out of the theater I thought I had just seen the best story of friendship and love with the best sense of atmosphere in memory. I don't care one way or the other about the "gay cowboy lol" thing, that was a great movie, front to back. Camera, writing, pacing, music, it was all really... real.

I also am a big fan of Walk the Line. I didn't know much about Johnny Cash, aside from that it seems everyone from Pink to Neil Young lists him as an influence. Again, I thought the atmosphere was very good. The music was woven into the story well, the acting and writing were great, and it didn't seem like too much of a puff piece.

Casino Royale - If you want to see Bond as he was meant to be and as he was in the books, see this movie. IMAO the best Bond movie yet.

V for Vendetta was good. I imagine everyone on NG has seen it, but those who haven't should rent it with a furious quickness.

I didn't see a ton of movies this year, maybe twenty or less, and I liked several of them, but if you are asking about ones that are five stars, I'd say the first two.

That movie rocked!
Way better than the first!
Some critics actually said it was really bad. The thing is, the movie is supposed to be really campy, to the point of it being funny. Some people don't get it. I really liked the kraken. It actually scared the wits out of the guy sitting next to me in the theater. The worst part is, I knew him.

If anything Pursuit of Happiness when it comes out on DVD. To me it was the best movie of 06'. The situations in it were things that people deal with in life. In some parts not gonna lie, call me a baby if you will, but I shed a tear. It had its ups and downs in the movie. Overall, its a 10/10 for me.

ShadowBoxer - A really good movie. Its one of my favorites. Even though it has a lot of sex scenes but the story is really good.

Jackass 2 - It made me almost pee myself in the movie theater because it was so damn funny. It is something you must see NOW!

Don't expect much of these to be from early 2006, my memory dosn't serve too well.

Borat- it's amazing what some people will do to get a laugh. And it's amazing how far Sacha Baron Cohen will go to get just one. And alot of the time you can't tell if it's staged or if the victim is really clueless, it just adds to the fun.

The Departed- this was the best acting I saw all year. An all star cast working on it's finest. I really enjoyed Nicholson as Frank, a great job there. A fine script, a good cast, and a twisted plot made for one of the best movies of '06.

Casino Royale- people seem to ber split on weather they like the new Bond or not. Well I know I do. This is a helluva step up from the lastest couple flicks. First of all, it had some solid acting and a good plot. The action scenes were great fun, and it had the funniest torture scence I've ever scence! This is a must-see for any 007 fan, and all else should see it too.

Inside Man- this was the surprise of the year for me, I went in to it expecting shit. But what I found was entertaining thriller with a great story. I'm not going to say "I was at the edge of my seat", but it was an exciting movie.

That's all I can think of.

Actually, Bolo, it's a matter of opinion. Denvish, do you like DragonForce? Do you like LOTR? Do you like any fantasy at all? Then see it! If not then just ignore it.

How can I forget Letters from Iwo Jima.

By far, the best movie I've seen this year.

Sure, Flags of our Fathers was kinda slow, kinda boring and kinda disjointed. This movie suffers from none of those problems. 2/3 of this movie is battle battle battle and it's incredible.

The moral dilemmas in this movie were gut-wrenching as well. Suicide, desertion, insubordination, torture, punishment, conscription, sympathizing with the enemy, these themes are all explored from several angles and it's a lot for your brain to chew on.

You haven't seen harrowing violence until you watch a squad of Japanese soldiers commit suicide one by one. Is there an orange ball of fire when the grenades explode? No, instead the grenade explosions are realistic and instead of having the gore obscured by the explosion, you see their bodies ripped apart. One by one.

Also, the movie is unique for me because it's the first time I've seen a war movie where the protagonists were fighting against the US (I haven't seen All Quiet On The Western Front). I always read lots of frightening things about the Japanese being ruthless and suicidal during WW2, and to see a movie told from their point of view was really moving. There's a particularly touching part in the movie where a Japanese colonel captures an American soldier who eventually dies. The colonel searches his pockets and finds a letter to the soldier written from his mother. He reads it out loud to his men, and for the first time these Japanese soldiers are realizing that the Americans are ordinary people just like them. In a way, they were experiencing the same feeling towards the Americans that I had towards the Japanese soldiers while watching the movie.

Unfortunately this movie is in limited release until Jan 2007, but if you're in a big city, Rotten Tomatoes has a link on the left side of this page where they'll find the nearest showings for you:
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/letters_from_ iwo_jima/

Another...

Little Miss Sunshine. It's one of those quasi-indie films (independent writer/director with some big studio funding, a few recognizable actors, and a limited theatrical release). I walked into it blind, as there was nothing else really playing at the time and I'm a sucker for experimenting with any indie films I come across. It was fantastic, we both loved it. A really brilliant black comedy in a lot of ways, but with a happy ending that didn't make me want to vomit (like the typical Hollywood pointlessly feel-good crap does). It had actual emotion and feeling. Highly recommended.

Clerks II is also great if you're a Fan of Kevin Smith.


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.

1. Little Miss Sunshine - This is the next movie to get the formula of comedy right since the first Airplane!
