Leah (pronounced Lay-uh) is a great blogger. Born in Canada, she's been blogging since she was 14. We wont hold it against her that she lives in Austin. With her husband.

Here's Leah top ten best movies of 2006:

10. Monster House
Even though this is a kids movie, I'd be lying if I said it didn't give me the heebie jeebies.

9. Hard Candy
I wouldn't watch it again but it was intense and had me on the edge of my seat/getting ready to cover my eyes the whole time.

8. Superman Returns
I'm a sucker for action and the scene where Superman is wet and they are kicking the crap out of him was one of my favorite scenes from any movie this year.

7. V for Vendetta
Action again, what's up! Natalie Portman made the movie for me.

6. Casino Royale
It dragged towards the end but while it was good... it was really good. The first chase scene looked like something out of XMen. When did Bond start chasing mutants?

5. Thank You For Smoking
A smart, quirky, enjoyable film. My only complaint is that demon child that keeps getting cast as a... demon child.

4. Little Miss Sunshine
A family flick for the not so normal family. The whole cast ruled me.

3. Stranger Than Fiction
I can understand that this wasn't the perfect movie or even close to it but I was just SO in the mood for this when I saw it. Flours? Seriously? You got me!

2. Brick
For sure a movie that should be viewed several times to get the maximum viewing pleasure. Joseph Gorden Levitt is great and I love a movie that keeps you guessing.

1. The Prestige
I'm picking my top 10 by how much I remember loving them and being IN IT while watching. The Prestige.. I was so in it. The twists, the turns, David Bowie, everything! And I also love a movie when you can leave the theatre and can still want to talk about it an hour later. When is this DVD release date!
