Temporal Top Ten – 2006

2006top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 131
Number of movies reviewed – 117 (Including 9 Encore Reviews)


This is a year where I was completely blown away by some of the movies.

My list is populated by a number of movies which are known by most to be great, but most of my list are not your run of the mill choices and the genre diversity is very interesting.

My #1 is a movie that I am emotionally overcome every time I’ve seen it because it is a powerful story of normal people taking heroic measures.

#2 and #3 were both best picture Nominees with #2 taking home the prize.

#4 is an unbelievable foreign sci-fi fantasy that enthralls me despite my affinity to not enjoying non-English language movies

#5 is one of the best Bond films ever made.

#6 is a great documentary about the movie rating system.

#7 is a modern day thriller that feels so real and it is also the only movie on this list that I saw for the first time only after beginning this site.

#8 is a heartwarming true tale of how a community learned to recover from tragedy.

#9 is a great thriller/bank heist that gets just about everything to work right.

And #10 is Pixar’s return to form

  1. United 93 is hands down one of the most heart-wrenching films I have ever seen. If someone were to get through this film without shedding a single tear I would be hard-pressed to believe that they have a soul.

    As for The Departed I was glad to see Scorsese win the Best Director Oscar but I have but one question for the voters: what the hell were you watching all these years?

  2. So glad to see Pan’s Labyrinth and Black Book on this list! Truly spectacular films.

    But I would also add The Lives of Others and Volver to the list, they’re some of the best films released in 2006. Susanne Bier’s After the Wedding is also pretty great.


  3. Some excellent choices, though I’d include The Prestige, Pursuit of Happyness, Amazing Grace, and the second Pirates film. This was a good year. Never heard of Black Book, and I really ought to see United 93. I’ll plan on it soon.

  4. This is another year from which I’ve seen very few movies. I saw The Departed (good, though I don’t love it as much as others), Cars (very entertaining), and Pan’s Labrynth (my favorite from the few I’ve seen from that year).

    The rest of the flicks on this list? I got nothing.


    • The only movie on this list that I think is a must-see is United 93, if you get a chance, I suggest that you try and see it. It is by far much, much better than anything else that came out that year

  6. United 93 is in my list of great movies that will only be watched once. The Departed is excellent and one of my favourite films of all time. Still haven’t seen Pan’s Labyrinth! Great list as always.
