My Top 10 Films of 2006

Seems like you do this every year, but a friend asked me what mine were. Here they are:

  1. The Departed
  2. El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth)
  3. Cars
  4. Pirates of the Caribbean
  5. Letters from Iwo Jima
  6. United 93
  7. The Illusionist
  8. The Prestige
  9. The Da Vinci Code
  10. Superman Returns

You could question Superman Returns but I really liked the homages Brian Singer did as a nod to Richard Donner and his amazing version. Cars really did make my feel good, Pirates was a good escape and despite complaints about how off the Da Vinci Code was, it was still fun. However Scorsese really nailed it with The Departed. Oscar nods to him and some of the cast. These are only films I've seen. If I had got out to see A Scanner Darkly, that might bump something like The Illusionist or The Prestige.

So what's your 10?
