Favourite Films of 2006

The year 2006 brought us 317 releases later, 40 of which were Canadian (woohoo - go Canada!), and 3 were re-releases of previous films. Being the curious creature I am I tallied up how many I saw at the end of the year and it was 32/317 of all the releases (about 10%) and 8/40 of the Canadian films (20%). If memory is correct last year I was at about 3% total, so things are looking good.

What would a year be without favorites lists? No fun, that's what! I'm all for fun so here is my list... Shannon's favourite films of 2006:
