A worthy debate

Posted By on Fri, Dec 29, 2006 at 10:24 AM

I'll post my Top 10 of 2006 as well as some thoughts on movies in general on New Year's Eve, but I'll go ahead and disclose that there were many movies I did not get to see this year.  It's unfortunate, as I noted yesterday, that Little Rock does not do more to get these films.  I shouldn't have to schedule a trip to New York each December to see all the great films Little Rock cinema house managers are too scared to screen.  That said, I will.

Armchair critic and I have been talking about the movies we're most impatient to see.  Here's his list (more or less in order): 1) Letters from Iwo Jima; 2) The History Boys; 3) Volver; 4) The Lives of Others; 5) Pan's Labyrinth; 6) Little Children; 7) The Last King of Scotland; 8) Indigines (Days of Glory); 9) Venus; 10) Notes on a Scandal; 11) The Good German; 12) Miss Potter

Here's my list (in order): 1) Little Children; 2) Pan's Labyrinth; 3) Letters from Iwo Jima; 4) The Last King of Scotland; 5) The Death of Mr. Lazarescu; 6) Volver; 7) Children of Men; 8) The Painted Veil; 9) The Iraq Documentaries (Iraq in Fragments, The War Tapes); 10) Venus; 11) The Lives of Others; 12) Three Times; 13) Deliver Us from Evil; 14) Our Brand is Crisis; 15) Army of Shadows

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
