D. G. Cochrane "jakecochrane"
 
Syriana [DVD] [2005] [2006]
Syriana [DVD] [2005] [2006]
"1. "Syriana" (2006): George Clooney stars in a De Niro/La Motta type role, in which he gained weight by living on pasta for a month. "Syriana" is a modern-day masterpiece and darkly disturbing."
Munich  [DVD]
Munich [DVD]
"2. "Munich" (2006): Groundbreaking, magnificent and emotional; the greatest film of 2006 was directed by the most successful Jew in the history of cinema. His best picture since "Schindler's List.""
Casino Royale (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [2006] [DVD]
Casino Royale (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [2006] [DVD]
"3. "Casino Royale" (2006): Daniel Craig is a violent, hard-hitting Bond who does things his way. My reaction? Possibly the best Bond since Sean Connery, the best Bond film since "Goldfinger" (1964)."
Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan [2006] [DVD]
Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan [2006] [DVD]
"4. "Borat" (2006): Sacha Baron Cohen completes his second "movie-film" which is not to be ignored, but features some of the most offensive material I have seen on film. Yet, absolutely hilairous."
Crash [2005] [DVD]
Crash [2005] [DVD]
"5. "Crash" (2006): One of the most successful pictures of the year. Is it overrated? Absolutely not. "Crash" is one of the most emotionally brilliant and well-edited pictures of the year."
Inside Man [DVD]
Inside Man [DVD]
"6. "Inside Man" (2006): Spike Lee's latest pictures goes on my list of his greatest pictures, along with "Summer of Sam," "Malcolm X," and his politically influential "Do the Right Thing.""
Brokeback Mountain [DVD] [2005]
Brokeback Mountain [DVD] [2005]
"7. "Brokeback Mountain" (2006): Ang Lee's oscar-grabbing masterpiece about gay cowboys who fall in love in the woods may sound bleak, but its one of the most memorable and emotional films of 2006."
Jackass The Movie [DVD] [2003]
Jackass The Movie [DVD] [2003]
"8. "Jackass: Number Two" (2006): One of the most funniest films I have seen in a long time, even better than the first movie, and defiantly gets my vote on the most sick film this century."
King Kong [DVD]  [2005] (2 Disc Special Edition)
King Kong [DVD] [2005] (2 Disc Special Edition)
"9. "King Kong" (2006): Like Jackson's earlier "LOTR" project, it needs to be seen at the cinema to be understood. Not a bad attempt at another "King Kong," but cannot beat the original."
Good Night and Good Luck [DVD]
Good Night and Good Luck [DVD]
"10. "Good Night & Good Luck" (2006): A little bit overrated and over-hyped (especially for Clooney's direction), and all though it didn't live up to its reputation for me, I still found it great."
