2006 Movie Reviews

Cool-Text-157045023903898

Welcome to the 4th section of my Movie list! We have previously covered films from 1987-2004 in parts I , II, and III. This segment will cover 2005-2009, a particularly good 5 years for movies. As always, I will provide “skinnys” of all the films I saw in cinemas in each individual year.

A rough year for some comic movies, but a great one for comedies

232: Scary Movie 4 – Whatever goodwill #3 earned with me was pissed away in this installment. What an embarrassment to all involved. This is where I exited the Scary Movie crazy train.

233: Superman Returns – Ugh! Superman is a stalker now!? What kills me is that Kevin Spacey is an awesome choice for Lex Luthor (watch House of Cards). Bosworth was a decent Lois Lane and Brandon Routh was an excellent choice for Superman, a near perfect choice no less. They had the John Williams theme and it was a continuation of Superman II. What a wasted opportunity.

234: X-Men 3 – AIIIEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So Bad.

235: Snakes on a Plane – Proof that comic-con buzz does not guarantee a great/good film.

237: The Pink Panther – A surprisingly good adaptation of the Inspector Clouseau character. Steve Martin is pretty good in the lead, and Kevin Kline is perfection as Dreyfus.

238: Mission Impossible 3 – A complete turn around from #2. JJ Abrams delivers the goods! He would be repeating this trend in all of his “franchise saving” films.

nacho_libre_ver2

239: Nacho Libre – Jack Black’s finest film to date. A perfect movie for a hot summer afternoon.

240: Clerks 2 – A good, but not as good as #1, type of film. The heart is there, but its just can’t recapture the magic.

241: Borat – Genius. Pure genius. Cohen is the best at what he does. He’s like the ultimate evolution of Tom Green, except with talent and a complete lack of fear.

talladega_nights_ver2

242: Talladega Nights – Will Ferrell continues to dominate. “Ricky Booby”- Cohen delivers again. “Shake and Bake”- Thank God for John C. Reilly. Classic.

beerfest

243: Beerfest – The Broken Lizard boys strike again! Their best film since Super Troopers. Underground Beer drinking needs to be a real sport.

2006-jackass_number_two-3

244: Jackass 2 – Ah, the men of my generation. Gotta love em.

pirates2-3

245:  Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead Man’s Chest – Ahoy Matey! Holy crap, did they top #1 or what?! Perfect ending. We saw this one at Disneyworld.

V-for-Vendetta-poster-2006-4

246: V For Vendetta – Very different than the comic, but just as impacting. Tremendous work by all involved.

236: Poseidon – Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine should have bitch slapped the crew responsible for this one. The Poseidon Adventure is one of my “Go-to” films when I need something good. This might be my most hated movie ever… if Battlefield Earth did not exist.

casino_royale_ver3

247: Casino Royale – Daniel Craig made me eat crow. I initially thought he was a poor choice for Bond. I have never been so happy to be wrong. A phenomenal start to his tenure as 007. This is also where Eva Green stole my heart forever.
