that's an unimpeachable list. you saw many more new movies than i did. my very favorite is LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. absolutely loved it.

the only film you have in your 'like' category that i'd move in 'love' section is DOOMSDAY. okay, okay, it is dumber than hell. but it was so much fun to watch. a pure fanboy flick made by a very good filmmaker. there were moments that i had to pause and watch again, esp. those sections that deliberately quote one of my favorite action flicks of all time THE WARRIORS.

shouldn't Lou Reed's Berlin be listed several times?

Several times now I've picked up the Tropic Thunder DVD, then put it back on the shelf. I'm just not sure I can put up with Ben Stiller AND Jack Black. But after your nod, I will at least hold it in my hands longer.

Vantage Point was disappointing. And that wasn't even Salamanca. They shot the film in Mexico!
