The Movies I Saw in 2006

Keeping up the tradition of the past few years, here is the list of flicks I watched in 2006. This was a strange year for me, I saw more movies in the theatre, but (relatively) few on video. I can only attribute that to all the home improvement stuff
coco_b and I had to deal with this year… Our plan is to move to a new home in 2007, so it’s possible that this trend could continue for another year. In a few weeks I will put together my “best of 2006” list, but I want to give myself an opportunity to catch some of the things from 2006 I haven’t seen yet.

    1. That’s one of the ones I really want to see before I make my “best of” list… Some others are “The Good Shepherd” and “Children of Men”

      1. I’ve seen both “The Good Shepherd” and “Children of Men,” and if it comes to only seeing one of the two, it’s “Children of Men” all the way. I saw it some night last week, and I’ll definitely see it again in the theatres once some time passes. The film was simply amazing. Sure, DeNiro’s film has crime drama written all over it (I won’t duplicate Larry King’s raving reviews) but Cuaron’s film is the superb one.

      2. I just saw a trailer for Children of Men. it looks totally awesome! I saw a trailer a couple months ago and it looked awesome then… I just forgot about it til now :)
