Overall, I completely agree with you. But what's with the extra's on "The Departed"? There's practically nothing at all. And the lack of commentary tracks on a lot of high profile releases is VERY disappointing. "V for Vendetta" 2-Disc comes to mind too.

Movie: Monster House

DVD: Forbidden Planet: Ultimate Collector's Edition

Monster House was the most enjoyable experience all around that I had at the theatres this year, Casino Royale was next then Superman Returns. SR was the only movie that I saw twice but it needed more humour.I saw more movies this year than ever before but I found it to be a rather lackluster year, movie quality wise.

I would have chosen the Ultimate Superman Collection for best DVD if it wasn't for the disc errors.
Movie: V For Vendetta/The Departed
DVD: Kingdom of Heaven: DC (easily)
2006 movie - Little Miss Sunshine
DVD - Red Dwarf 8 or Arrested Development 3

I didn't see much this year, but Little Miss Sunshine was really the most memorable. Departed would fall a close second. As for Red Dwarf and Arrested Development, I just love the shows and extras.

You gotta be kidding me. The Devil Wears Prada was decent, but it's nothing compared to Babel, The Last King of Scotland, Little Miss Sunshine and Casino Royale.

Funny you mentioned all of those. I really liked them, and I know a lot of people that can't stop raving about em. But to me, I don't know, I felt simply underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all of them and I'll definetly buy "Borat" when it comes out on DVD. But, I just felt that after all the hype surrounding these three they just didn't live up to it. I mean, when James L. Brooks says "I feel like I just heard 'Sgt. Peppers' for the first time" after seeing "Borat", how can you NOT ultimately be underwhelmed.

However, when it came to "The Departed", it was hyped to high heaven, I expected nothing but perfection, and it delivered on everything, and then some. Not only did it hit every dramatic beat with intensity and true feeling, but it was f**king funny. REALLY FUNNY. I've sen the flick 3 times in theaters and every single time the Elevator scene has my heart pounding through my chest. Not to mention the soundtrack, which, like in all Scorcese pictures, is simply incredible (and I give him a pass for reusing "Gimme Shelter" after Goodfellas just because it's the Stones). Wow, that went on waaaaaay to long. Anyways, just my 2.
