Cybergosh Divides Film Year 2006 Into Groups!
This year, I couldn’t deal with putting every little film in order…
So what I’ve gone and done is broken each film down into groups,
and within those groups I’ve listed them in no particular order.
With that, here’s what I thought of 2006…..
The best, most enjoyable experiences of 2006:
Snakes on a Plane
Awesome. So great when great movies enter your eyes, ears and mind.
I will own all of these on DVD:
Children of Men
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
The Good German
Grandma’s Boy (yes. grandma’s boy)
Very Cool. Will most likely buy these on DVD, but in less of a rush to watch them again. That does not make them any less awesome though.
Just a little less repeatability:
V for Vendetta
Lucky Number Slevin
The Lake House
Deep Sea 3D
Now here we have film’s i really enjoyes while watching them. very fun experiences. but, for one reason or another, i’m not compelled to buy them on dvd right away):
isolation (my favorite horrory type thrillery type movie of the year!)
apocolypto (i’ll say it again! best jungle action since predetor!)
stick it (for the introduction shot of Jeff Bridges, if for nothing else)
benchwarmers (wait – actually i did but this hehehe…junktape knows why…)
tenacious D in the pick of destiny
lady in the water
night at the museum
big momma’s house 2 (oh come on! you can’t not love it!)
This is the bottom group of the films i “liked”…
each of these had issues and flaws that got in the way of loving them:
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (as much of a convoluted mess that it is, Jack Sparrow is a character that transcends all elements a film is normally judged on)
nacho libre (might grow into this the more i see it…half what i wanted it to be and half just wasted opportunity)
the wicker man (yes, i know not as good as original by any means but Cage held it together)
the descent (i mean, it’s good…i dunno…why didin’t i care about these woman? I need to care. Cool but i need to care more!)
Poseidon (the josh lucas imax experience!)
silent hill (had me good ’til things went a bit bonkers in the last reel)
little miss sunshine (funny. just not the kind of funny that makes me wanna watch it again and again)
final destination 3 (just barely makes it on my good list. barely.)
And now for the dissapointments of 2006…
Glad i saw them, but ultimately not all I had hoped for.
I won’t ever watch these again, but still, not SO bad:
stranger than fiction
world trade center
the science of sleep
prairie home companion
for your consideration
This category is where things get frustrating:
the grudge 2
the di vinci code
the santa calus 3
the devil wears prada
an American Haunting
xmen: the last stand
the hills have eyes
mini’s first time
And this is where I just start getting stressed out and angry.
Why didin’t I just walk out?!:
the break up
basic instinct 2
the tiger and the snow
let’s go to prison
And finally, the films I just could not deal with.
I actually went against type this year and walked out on all of these:
scary movie 4
fast food nation
over the hedge
A few i didin’t see but probably should have instead of the wastes of my life in the above category:
Notes on a Scandal
The Multiple Viewings of 2006…
What did i enjoy so much i had to go back again? And again:
Cars – 5
Superman Returns: The IMAX Experience – 3
SoaP – 3
Mi:III – 2
V for Vendetta: The IMAX Experience – 2
Deep Sea 3D in IMAX 3D – 2
Dead Man’s Chest – 2
Lady in the Water – 2
Monster House in Disney Digital 3D – 2
Clerks 2 – 2
Borat – 2
Rocky Balboa – 2
And now, i’d also like to rate, in order, my 10 most eagerly awaited films of Summer 2007…the most sequely summer since…what? 1990 i believe!….
1. Grindhouse (i know, it’s april, but i need to lump this in as this is at the top of my list for the year along with a certain november zemekis release)
2. Ratatouille (brad bird will go 3 for 3)
3. Year 5 (because the odd-numbered years are usually better)
4. The Transformers (i’m with “Elias” on this one)
5. At World’s End (because i’m hoping they get ALL of it right this time)
6. Ocean’s 13 (because it’s the REAL sequel to Ocean’s 11)
7. The Simpsons Movie (because, while a few years too late, it will be nothing short of awesome)
8. Spidey 3 (this far down just because of no elfman)
9. Live Free or Die Hard (would and SHOULD be higher up. down here because of lack of diehardness in trailer, and, quite frankly, i’m scared)
10. I Am Legend (because, unlike pal friendlies, i don’t really enjoy will smith that much but i know it’ll probably be really cool)
And now, for making your way through my faves of ’06…
a secret peak of my most eagerly awaited film of all of ’07…
if you want to keep Zemekis’ next film completely spolier-free
do not keep scrolling down any further.
If, however, you’d like to take a glimpse of some test shots
and various other pre-production type imagery,
Now, i’m warning you!
This stuff is cool but stop if you
wanna stay blind to what lies ahead in November…
Okay…here we go…..
Now, i know there’s no Grendel….
but there IS this….
