Top 26 (+1) of 2006

I guess it's time to make a list. I'm afraid I'll have to be "that guy that likes obscure films that keep him on the level with those 'film types,' and cast out as even thinking of putting Over the Hedge on this list." Let the ridicule begin:-)
note: remember there are films that are still in my Netflix queue that I haven't seen yet (that count as 2006 films even though only 10 film critics got to see them in 2006).
A Scanner Darkly
Thank You for Smoking
The Departed
The Queen
The Devil Wears Prada
Little Miss Sunshine
United 93
Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
The Squid and the Whale
Casino Royale
Blood Diamond
Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room
A Prairie Home Companion
Inside Man
The Science of Sleep
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Stranger than Fiction
World Trade Center
The Last Kiss
Clerks II
Superman Returns
The Prestige
(+1)And an old film (new to me this year) that still hovers in my memory:
Paris, Texas
Also, watching Hithcock's films this year has been a highlight (especially- Vertigo, Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, Notorious, The Birds)
