#2. Best Movies of 2006 - Marie Antoinette
Sophia Coppola's flick Marie Antoinette is, above anything else, one of the prettiest movies you'll have seen in a long time. The movie tells the tale of the former Queen of France and begins on the day she finds out she'll be setting out from her native land of Austria to marry the Dauphin of France - at the young age of 14. Marie Antoinette is a beautiful movie that has something for everyone - but a little more for girls who have a weakness for pretty things.
#1. Best Movies of 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean 2
After releasing himself and the crew who mutinied against him, you would think Captain Jack Sparrow would be living the high life. But instead he soon realizes he still has many debts to settle in the open sea - in particular, a very important one with Davy Jones. Davy Jones and his crew of barnacled scallywags look spectacular and the on-going sword play will keep you entertained the whole way through. This is a definite must-see!
