- Children of Men (2006)
Directed by Alfonso Cuarón, the mastermind behind superbly-directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and starring Clive Owen, this movie recounts our world in 2027. A world in which humans can no longer procreate. But then there’s a pregnant woman somewhere and she has to be transported to scientists save the future of humankind.
- Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
The name of this movie has always intrigued me. It seemed nice. And I watched the trailer – and liked it too – but I didn’t make the connection until a couple of days ago. It’s a comedy, written by newbie Michael Arndt, about a family’s car trip in their VW bus to get their younger daughter to the finals of the beauty pageant.
Plus it stars hilarious Steve Carell, who leads in famous TV show, The Office. This movie is set to shine in the Oscars.
- Babel (2006)
Golden Globe Award-winning film, Babel stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett amongst others and is directed by Mexican Alejandro González Iñárritu. The movie basically follows the torments of different families and morphs all the story lines in the end.
It’s definitely not one of those “light” movies. Rated R.
- Happy Feet (2006)
Cute, cute, cute animation.
