2006 | First Placers

Seems this time of year we’re all supposed to list our top 10 something or others, or our ‘best of’ lists. So not wanting to break with such a tradition here are Brent’s 1st Placers.


Ah, movies. This year I reviewed 80 films, and saw probably about 100 total. You can go check out my reviews here:

Going by the rankings I set for each, here are my 1st Place Winners for films released in 2006:

Asian Film

Colma: The Musical

2. Gwoemul (The Host); 3. Big Bang Love: Juvenile A

Mainstream Film

Little Children
2. Notes on a Scandal; 3. Bon Cop, Bad Cop (Canadian too!)

Documentary Film

Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story
2. Mozartballs
3. Who I Am and What I Want

Granted, I’m more of a movie than music guy but certainly the song of 2006 was:

Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”

This song was wandering on the internet eons before it scored big here in North America. I remember listening to it courtesy of a Xangster months and months before it was ‘big’. I still love it.

Certainly the best TV this year has been:

2. Ugly Betty

Looking at what happened online this past year, and speaking solely for myself, these two things stand out:

2. Pandora

    I agree that Youtube would have to big a big winne from the 2006 stockpile… I stuggle to think how we coped just 2 years ago! And just wait.. youtube is set to become bigger and better in 007!

    wow, you reviewed a lot of movies! i think my favorite movie of the year, though, was probably shortbus (but that could also just be because it was the most recent movie i’ve seen). yay for youtube and pandora!

    babs, i am not feelin’ the Colma OST. I have to see it I think to understand the point of reference. Little Children WAS the best! Anxiously anticipating its video release. Thanks for the visit yesterday. hug.

  4. I agree with the online things. And replying to your comment: uhh…not old enough to drink yet, cuz I’m not even legal…lol *wink?* Just kidding, but we were old enough to drink apple cider =]

    Interesting list. I can agree with the movies I have seen but I have a few more to go.
