PCB's Best and Worst Films of 2006*†

5. United 93
6. The Three Burials Of Melqiades Estrada
7. Hard Candy

9. Superman Returns
10. The Prestige

Worst Films of 2006

1. Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest
2. The Da Vinci Code

4. Poseidon
5. Basic Instinct 2
6. The Hills Have Eyes
7. Brick
8. Derailed
9. The Grudge 2
10. Deja Vu

*only compiled from films actually seen in the cinema during 2006, so admittedly, it's not that comprehensive a list. One of the resolutions for 2007 is to get back to the cinema more.

†Lists compiled on New Year's Eve. Entry started on Christmas Eve by listing all films I had seen from IMDb and saving it as a draft entry.
