Other people's Ten Best Movies for 2006

This year was unusual because there were not, as is common, fifteen to
twenty movies that might be plausibly listed on anyone's list of the
Ten Best Movies.

Colin Covert of the Minnesota Star-Tribune doesn't like these lists but
he did mention the following films.
1. Borat
2. United 93
3. The Departed
4. The Descent
5. Thank You for Smoking
6. Half Nelson
7. The Devil Wears Prada
8. V for Vendetta
9 A Prarie Home Companion
