    Prepare thyself for really strong emotions
    Bjrk's a superb actress although she isn't one, which makes it even more remarkable.

    As the year comes to an end, polls of every kind can be seen around :P;

    What was the best film you watched in 2006?

    The Prestige was my favorite. I always like the movies that you can discuss about and produce your own theories later on.

    I also enjoyed Lucky Number Slevin very much.

    Indeed. I enjoyed that very much. I was also surprised by "Running Scared". Not really my kind of movie but this one was great

    First of all i am not that guy who enjoys watching films. I am old school representative who prefers reading books.
    I saw 15 films at best this year and maybe 5 which was released in 2006.
    Secondly i am mostly watching sci-fi movies.
    My favourites movies are 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Dark City.

    As I said maybe i saw 5 films which was released this year and from those 5 films jackass 2 was the best
    yes it is ridiculous, disgusting, stupid film but this one was of those few rear movies where i laughed non-stop all hour and a half. You just love it or hate it.

    I can not give them in an order like some of you did but here are the ones I like:

    Godfather I and II, Apocalypse Now, Memento, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List, AI, 2001: A Space Odyssey (even made me see strange dreams), The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Leon, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Green Mile, Matrix, Kill Bill, The Shawshank Redemption, V for Vendetta, Forrest Gump, Das Boot, Amadeus...

    I agree with sariss' picks, I really loved both The Prestige and Lucky Number Slevin; The Prestige because it was fascinating, different, historical, quirky, and kept you guessing, and Lucky Number Slevin just because it was fun and didn't take itself seriously.

    I just saw The Good Shepherd, which I thought was very interesting and my husband hated. I am waffling on whether I think De Niro meant for Matt Damon to be such a cipher in this movie, or did a bad job. Because it's either a work of staggering genius or a three-hour indulgent piece of crap. But the other acting is fabulous.

    My other favorites: (all big budget movies practically! I am a slave to Hollywood apparently)
    Thank You for Smoking - perhaps this was only hysterical to me because I work for personal injury lawyers. The scenes in the restaurant with the other merchants of death are my favorite.
    Good Night and Good Luck -
    a really interesting movie that made me think about a lot of things.
    V for Vendetta -
    just fascinating on so many levels, also makes me think each time. I think I have to buy a copy of this one.
    Inside Man -
    very tight thriller, I totally bought it all the way through. Plus, Jodie Foster was in it.
    X-Men 3 -
    big-budget mayhem with unbelievable effects.
    Walk the Line -
    I adore movies about musicians that are this good.
    An Inconvenient Truth -
    because.

    Movies I still very much want to see:
    The Fountain - I have loved all of Aronofsky's movies so I know I will like this one.
    Babel - ditto this director.
    Volver
    - ditto.
    The Queen
    - ditto. Stephen Frears does no wrong.
    Pan's Labryinth
    - just read two great reviews of this one and now I really want to see it now but it's not here yet!
    Curse of the Golden Flower -
    oh, and ditto again. Raise the Red Lantern is one of my all-time favorite movies and I just adore Gong Li. I will definitely watch Miami Vice a few times more just for her.

    did I just spend 10 minutes on this thread? I need to find other diversions.

    It was entertaining, but I didn't like the end that much.

    From the latest flicks, I liked very much "Coraline" and "District 9". "Funny people" and "Public enemies" are good movies, also... I'm not professional movie critic, so don't judge my picks.

    Arkadios, too many American films, though most of them are really good.

    Too much good films to name, but the ones comes to my mind:

    Romper Stomper
    Little miss sunshine
    The Edukators
    Half Nelson
    Shutter 2004
    Braking the waves
    Down of the dead 2004


    Oh, and surely this Scandinavian pearl- Lt den rtte komma in
