So, out of the Top 5 Movies according to IMDB, again, I have not yet seen any of them. I have, however, seen Clerks 2, which is #3 of the Funniest Movies of the Year. And I have seen CARS, which is #1 in the Best Family Movie section (which also shows up #1 on their section for Best Animated Feature as well). So I really need to get on the ball and start watching some more movies. Netflix has been helping me catch up with the last couple of years though so I should be caught back up in a couple of months. LOL! If you want to check out this poll to see their other Tops lists, click on IMDB Best of 2006.
