The Santa Clause 4: The Title-Rentention Clause

Was 2006 a great year for movies? Well, it was no 1995. Where was 2006's Sudden Death? Its Virtuosity? Maybe I don't know because I spent a quarter of 2006 in England, a country where Judge Dredd is just starting to make the rounds. So I've missed some notables, such as Volver, The Last King of Scotland and Pan's Labyrinth. Since I only spent 3/4 of 2006 in the civilized world, I am only going to offer 3/4 of a top ten.

THE TOP 7.5 OF 2006:

1. The Departed
2. United 93
3. Inside Man
4. Children of Men
5. Dave Chappelle's Block Party
6. The Prestige
7. Wordplay
7.5 The Queen (I saw the first half on a plane)

Better than I thought it would be:


Worse than I thought it would be:

About as good as I thought it would be:
