2006 Movie Moments

As many expected, given my inability to finish anything ever -- I did not succeed in my 100 movies in one calendar year goal. Burning out as I entered the home stretch, I just could not force myself to go see Rocky Balboa on the last day of the year. But here are 99 moments from the 99 movies I saw, in more or less order of moment preference. For actual movie preference(as well as chronological order), go here:
