Top DVDs of 2006

Voltron00x "Elias"
 
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (Widescreen Edition)
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (Widescreen Edition)
"My favorite movie of the year - fantastic performances by Kilmer and Downey Jr. and a terrific script FULL of great one-liners."
Inside Man (Widescreen Edition)
Inside Man (Widescreen Edition)
"This movie caught me by surprise - this is a great heist / caper film full of strong performances:  Denzel, Foster, and Clive Owen in particular.  Great surprise ending as well that makes you want to watch it again..."
Match Point
Match Point
"You'd never think this was a Woody Allen film - its more like Hitchcock than anything else.  Tremendous cinematography throughout and great performances from the leads."
Good Night, and Good Luck (Widescreen Edition)
Good Night, and Good Luck (Widescreen Edition)
"Half acting lesson and half history lesson, I really enjoyed this film.  The B&W really suits it."
Munich (Widescreen Edition)
Munich (Widescreen Edition)
"Eric Bana becomes a movie star in this one - this is one of the year's best films.  Powerful, thought-provoking cinema."
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Two-Disc Collector's Edition)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Two-Disc Collector's Edition)
"This movie got very mixed reviews - personally, I really enjoyed it.  Yes, its not as good as the first, but only because you know what to expect this time around.  It manages to up the ante in the action sequences, and although the script isn't quite as strong, I found this one a little more humorous and I think that lends itself well to repeat viewings.  Looking forward to the third film."
Lost - The Complete Second Season
Lost - The Complete Second Season
"Lost continues to be one of the best shows on TV, and looks fantastic on DVD.  This show is even better without having to wait weeks in between each episode."
Arrested Development: Season 3
Arrested Development: Season 3
"RIP Arrested Development - this is the most intelligent and well-written comedy that ever graced network TV."
Wedding Crashers (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
Wedding Crashers (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
"Even though the film is a little too long, this is one of the best comedies in years.  Vince Vaughn steals every scene he's in."
Broken Flowers
Broken Flowers
"Another year, another incredible film with Bill Murray.  He probably should've won the oscar for his fantastic and under-stated work in this film.  Check out the scenes with Ruth from Six Feet Under and Shooter McGavin..."
The Constant Gardener (Widescreen Edition)
The Constant Gardener (Widescreen Edition)
"This is one of those films that lives up to its hype - even if the subject matter doesn't grab your attention, the terrific performances will.  Tremendous film."
V for Vendetta (Two-Disc Special Edition)
V for Vendetta (Two-Disc Special Edition)
"Greatly exceeded my expectations, which honestly were pretty low considering the atrocity that was the last two Matrix films.  Natalie Portman is great in this one, almost making up for her performance in SW:III, and Hugo Weaving is excellent as always.  A well-done and timely film given everything going on in our country."
Little Miss Sunshine
Little Miss Sunshine
"Great ensemble cast makes this one of the year's best comedies - far stronger than Talladega Nights, actually."
Seinfeld: Season 7
Seinfeld: Season 7
"More classic episodes from one of the best comedies of all time."
The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season
The Simpsons - The Complete Ninth Season
"One of the last "great" seasons of the Simpsons before it began its long (and continuing...) decline in quality.  This seasons is actually a little stronger than 8, in my opinion, and is one of the show's best."
The Simpsons - The Complete Eighth Season (Collectible Maggie Head Pack)
The Simpsons - The Complete Eighth Season (Collectible Maggie Head Pack)
"Nothing comes close to the Simpsons during its heyday, and Season 8 contains some of the most classic episodes ever.  Basically every episode is a classic."
The Venture Bros. Season 1
The Venture Bros. Season 1
"This show is a hilarious send-up of 60s cartons and serials, with some modern references thrown in for fun - in one great episode they manage to mock Scooby Doo AND have characters speak dialogue straight from David Bowie's Space Oddity... incredible."
An Inconvenient Truth
An Inconvenient Truth
"More moving than you'd ever expect.  I had the privelege of seeing Al Gore speak in Baltimore in 2005, and its a shame that he wasn't as humorous and personable in 2000 as he has become since then, or he'd probably be our president today.  This is an excellent documentary - the pictures and visuals really tell the story."
Weeds: Season 1
Weeds: Season 1
"Weeds comes with quite a bit of hype... mostly deserved.  Kevin Nealon is fantastic.  The show is a little bit over the top at times but is always enjoyable."
Pink Floyd - Pulse
Pink Floyd - Pulse
"This concert looks AND sounds great on DVD - a must-have for any Pink Floyd fan."
Why We Fight
Why We Fight
"One of the best documentaries in recent years... I can't recommend this DVD enough.  The accuracy in Eisenhower's farewell address is eerie."
Hustle & Flow (Widescreen Edition)
Hustle & Flow (Widescreen Edition)
"A film I expected to be over-hyped, but was not... this is a great movie and Howard deserved the accolades.  Again, even if the subject matter isn't normally your cup of tea, this is one of the year's best films and transcends its genre."
A History of Violence (New Line Platinum Series) [DVD]
A History of Violence (New Line Platinum Series) [DVD]
"One of Cronenberg's more "normal" films, to the extent that its possible.  Although on some levels this film is over-hyped, something about it really grabs me.  The overlap of the hyper-violent with regular American life is somewhat Hitchcockian."
My Name is Earl: Season 1
My Name is Earl: Season 1
"Jason Lee is incredible in this show - the best new comedy since Arrested Development."
Entourage: The Complete Second Season (DVD-3 Discs)
Entourage: The Complete Second Season (DVD-3 Discs)
"One of the best shows on television, this season is even better than the first.  The Aquaman storyline that carries the season is great, and some of the side plots (especially the convention with Dillon's Viking Quest - "Victory!") are fantastic.  Piven is the real star of the show, of course."
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Single-Disc Widescreen Edition)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Single-Disc Widescreen Edition)
"The best Harry Potter so far, in terms of pacing, visual effects, and acting.  Builds well off the strong 3rd film."
Samurai Jack: Season 3
Samurai Jack: Season 3
"I miss this show - I think its one of the best to ever come out of Cartoon network, and its a shame it never had a wider audience."
Mission: Impossible 3 (Widescreen Edition)
Mission: Impossible 3 (Widescreen Edition)
"This movie was far better than I expected, and is probably the best MI movie of the trilogy.  It most certainly has the best villain - Philip Seymour Hoffman is always fantastic, and could make a career of playing the bad guy if this movie is any indication."
Brick
Brick
"Chinatown-esque dialogue and storyline set in a modern highschool - its a weird setup and very slow for the first 15 minutes, but once it gets going it will grab you."
Dave Chappelle's Block Party (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
Dave Chappelle's Block Party (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
"Half concert film (with GREAT performances), Half stand-up with the always funny Chappelle... definitely a good disc."
The Transformers - The Movie (20th Anniversary Special Edition)
The Transformers - The Movie (20th Anniversary Special Edition)
"Great re-release of one of my all-time favorite films.  Nothing beats the Transformers - now remastered and in Widescreen!"
Robot Chicken, Season 1
Robot Chicken, Season 1
"Another hilarious Adult Swim show - co-created by Seth Green and one of the guys from Toyfare's Twisted Toyfare Theatre, this is a ridiculous show."
Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (Widescreen Edition)
Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (Widescreen Edition)
"Its not NBX, sure, but the stop-motion animation still looks great, and Depp delivers as usual.  Will grow on you over time."
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (Unrated Director's Cut)
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (Unrated Director's Cut)
"One of my favorite films released in a higher quality edition.  Worth upgrading if you own the older one for the jump in audio and visual quality."
