Every year, Carolyn & I post a list of what we watched. This year, I have broken it into sections. Read on to see what MOVIES we watched in 2006. (Sorry about the extended delay.) Also make sure to check out our list of 2006 viewing coincidences.

This is a time consuming post to read, but I’d like people to comment on them if possible and willing.

*** AWARDS: ***

FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEAR: Grandma’s Boy
BEST ACTION: The Island, RUNNER-UP: Transporter 2
BEST BIOGRAPHY: Man On The Moon
BEST DRAMA: Clint: Oldboy, Carolyn: Wild At Heart (we watched what, 2-3 dramas? everything else falls in other categories: action,sci-fi,horror)
BEST COMEDY: 40-Year Old Virgin, Grandma’s Boy
BEST HORROR: Saw 2, RUNNER-UP: Hostel. HONERABLE MENTION: Cube 2: HyperCube.
BEST SCI-FI: Serenity (Firefly movie) (runner-up: Cube 2: HyperCube)
BEST VISUALS: MirrorMask
MOST DEPRESSING: Gummo? (loved by Clint, hated by Carolyn)
MOST DISTURBING/TWISTED: Hostel. RUNNER-UP: Saw 2. (Gummo was disturbing, but socially, not violently; The Island was as well, but in a sci-fi fascist kind of way; Oldboy too.)
WORST MOVIE: Clint says: Bourne Identity. Also: Coffee & Cigarettes.
REMAKE OF A TV SHOW, WORST: Miami Vice
REMAKE OF A TV SHOW, BEST: Aeon Flux (Serenity doesn’t count; it’s not a remake)
CLONE MOVIE, WORST: Multiplicity
CLONE MOVIE, BEST: Repli-Kate
MOST DISSONANCE BETWEEN CLINT & CAROLYN: Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Gummo – Clint liked both, Carolyn hated both.
MOST BULLSHIT MOMENT: Transporter 2, de-fusing a bomb on the bottom of his car by jumping on a ramp and twisting into a hook on a crane that just happened to be there. Like you can control how and when your car twists with that kind of accuracy?!?! (last year‘s was from The Day After Tomorrow) (more…)

    They also tend to have low IQs, are 3X more likely to be left-handed, and are often short. Watch out for short, stupid, left-handed people. (more…)
