Movies of 2006
The Departed won Best Picture beating out The Queen, Babel, Little Miss Sunshine, and Letters From Iwo Jima. Pirates of the Caribbean 2 raked in the most money (by far) followed by Cars, X-Men 3, and The Da Vinci Code. Those are the critics and the hoi polloi, but this is my blog so here's my take. Hoi polloi...I love that word.

There were only a few good movies of 2006 I'd highly recommend watching: Inside Man, Pan's Labyrinth, An Inconvenient Truth, World Trade Center along with the oscar movies the Departed and Little Miss Sunshine. Good movies also include Apocalypto (if you can take the usual Gibson gore) and Illusionist. Personally I enjoyed Borat and Jackass 2, but these are very crude and not for everyone. But highly entertaining! However, I haven't mentioned my favorite movie of the year: Stranger Than Fiction, definitely the most entertaining movie of the year, and thus it wins my personal vote for Picture of the Year. It's not your usual Will Ferrell movie, so if you don't like him watch it anyway. And let me know what you think. Enjoy.
