Hey shelob, good topic but I am still trying to decide on my list. I thought in the meantime I would post a Wikipedia Link for others to use to see all of the films released in 2006. That will hopefully help others put together a list and contribute to this thread.

Nate, thanks for the list. I really needed something like that. Unfortunately, it reminds me that I didn't see much this year, and what I did see didn't inspire me.

I've divided everything I saw (that came out this year; not the old movies from the library) into a liked-it/didn't like-it. Here goes:

Liked it (no particular order)
1. Tristan and Isolde
2. The Lake House
3. The Illusionist
4. Casino Royale
5. Dreamgirls
6. An Inconvenient Truth
7. Thank you for Smoking

Didn't like/hated it (no order)
1. Underworld Evolution
2. V for Vendetta
3. MI:3
4. The Da Vinci Code
5. X-Men: The Last Stand
6. Superman Returns
7. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
8. Little Miss Sunshine
9. The Notorious Bettie Page

Feh!
1. Inside Man

Honorable mention goes to The Covenant. A truly terrible film, but funny, and I enjoyed every second in the theater.

This was an edifying exercise. But I fear the results may be misleading. My top movies (Al Gore and Smoking aside) are stereotypical female-skewing fare. Romance, musical, the only Bond film with a vulnerable hero. There are three comic book films on my negative list, as are other films with action. If I didn't know me, I would think I was a girl. Well, I am a girl, but that's not what I mean.

But that's not me! Not really. I love superhero stuff. That's why I asked for animated Justice League this Christmas, and Batman Beyond. I think this is the crux of the matter. Loving the stuff as I do, I was bitterly disappointed with almost all the comic-book movie offerrings this year. Of course, I never liked V the book. I was just hoping for more from the movie, which I never got. I think the movies on my liked list are there because I wasn't expecting much, and they pleasantly surprised me. The same can be said for Aeon Flux. Technically a 2005 release, but I saw it at the cheap theater in 2006. I liked it, but I had low expectations.

There is definitely food for thought here. I will ponder as I watch movies in the new year.

First, I must say that I think 2006 was a truly horrible movie year. Usually I go to a movie theater 30-40 times a year -- in 2006 I went just 11 times!!!

And since I only go watch movies that I'm pretty sure I'll like (not very daring, I know...) my "Worst Movie" list won't be all that long. That doesn't mean there weren't plenty of horrible movies in 2006, it just means I never bothered to watch them.

My Favorites (no order):
V For Vendetta (Loved V in a frilly apron and Natalie Portman with no hair.)
X-Men: The Last Stand (ACTION!!!!!)
Casino Royale (I couldn't care less about Bond's supposed vulnerability... I thought he was less smarmy than the previous incarnations. I loved the airport chase!)
Eragon (Dragons!!! Well... one dragon. Jeremy Irons! John Malkovich! Swordfights!!!! I could have done with a little less blond, curly-haired, teenaged protagonist, though.
Firewall (My favorite quote of the year: "I don't hate you. I just don't care about you."


So-So Movies (no order:
Mission: Impossible III (Loved the action, but Tom Cruise gets on my nerves these days...)
Poseidon (Ship sinks. People drown. Some don't. So what?)
Superman Returns (I never much cared for Superman. He's too invincible. And the kid s**k*d. Lex Luthor was cool, though.)
Déjà Vu (It doesn't matter how many people die or get maimed in horrible car accidents... as long as the pretty woman lives.)
Ultraviolet (Reminded me a little of "Blade". Lots of lovely movie violence... you know, the totally absurd kind. An incomprehensible story. A fairly good soundtrack... that doesn't seem to have been released. Sad )

Awful/Annoying Movies (no order:
Bloodrayne (I think there was no big screen release for that one in Germany. Thank God. But I had the "luck" to rent the DVD. Absolutely nothing in the movie made any sense to me. The acting was absurd and the special effects were definitely second-rate.)
The DaVinci Code (That one was really disappointing, since I loved the book. But they left everything out that made the book interesting.)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (The first movie was hilarious. The second one was way too long... and then, to make it even worse, it's a cliffhanger!!!!)

Movies I'd still like to see (no order:
Children of Men
Snakes on a Plane
Lady in the Water
Das Parfüm
Little Miss Sunshine
An Inconvenient Truth
Miami Vice
Apocalypto


Except for maybe "Apocalypto" these are the kind of movies where I wait for the DVD release.

Let's try this difficult exercise!

Please note these movies were all released in 2006 in France, including older ones Smile

My favorites!
Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Pan's Labyrinth
Cars
Babel
Pompoko
The Departed
Renaissance
Das Parfum
Marie Antoinette

Didn't really care Smile
Memoirs of a Geisha
Da Vinci Code
Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
Little Miss Sunshine

I tend to avoid movies that I'm not sure I'll like, so I don't have a 'worst' list Smile

I really really really didnt enjoy lady in the water... not even just.... not enjoy, i would go so far as to say it was one of my least favorite movies of the year. Doogal was probably the worst, but eragon was up there too.

no, i just really didnt like the writing, the acting, the ideas, everything about LitW seemed like it was made up on the fly by about Three 14 year olds TRYING to make a M.Night movie.

Honestly Rob, I don't like arguing, so i think it's best that we agree to disagree.

But I really want to make a point here and say that if LitW looked like it was made by 14 year olds, Beerfest looked like it was made by infant monkeys.

Thats all.

heh... yeah, i went into beer fest expecting infentile humor and simple writing driven by fart, dick, and beer jokes.

however, as i said before, i am a big M.Night fan and LitW just was a huge let down, let alone a big pat on his own back, by M.Night. it was not nearly as fun

beerfest is fun to watch drunk though. lady in water is just redic'.
