3/23 - Ong-Bak - 40stars.gif (A blast with a bunch of people.)
3/20 - Ninja Scroll, Vol. 1 * - 20stars.gif (Surprised how underwhelming this was, considering the Ninja Scroll movie is such a classic.)
3/19 - Reconstruction * - 40stars.gif (Very interesting, non-linear, visually stunning take on infidelity.)
3/18 - The Abyss - 40stars.gif (A true guilty pleasure of mine.)
3/15 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 3 * - 30stars.gif
3/13 - The Incredibles - 45stars.gif (3rd viewing, still just as good.)
3/13 - Logan's Run - 40stars.gif * (Yes it's dated but it's so refreshing to watch a sci-fi movie that isn't buried beneath layers of CGI.)
3/13 - Alive - 25stars.gif * (I really liked Versus but Azumi bit the big one. Alive leans closer to the latter end of the spectrum.)
3/13 - The Jacket - 30stars.gif +*
3/10 - Someday's Dreamers, Vol. 1 - 35stars.gif *
3/08 - A Man Escaped - 35stars.gif *

3/06 - The Incredibles - 45stars.gif + (Even better the second time around.)
3/05 - Cromartie High, Vol. 1 - 20stars.gif * (One of the stranger, more absurd and incoherent anime titles I've seen lately.)

February
2/28 - Five Star Stories * - 25stars.gif
2/25 - Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind * - 35stars.gif
2/24 - Kung Fu Hustle * - 30stars.gif (Not nearly as good as Shaolin Soccer, but still fun.)
2/22 - Shaolin Soccer - 40stars.gif (Probably one of most enjoyable films I watch, and a great film to watch with a bunch of people. Tons o' fun.)
2/20 - Constantine - 25stars.gif +*
2/19 - Ten Things I Hate About You - 35stars.gif (So cliched and formulaic, but so much fun.)
2/19 - Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex Vol. 4 * - 40stars.gif (One of my fave current anime series continues its strong streak.)
2/17 - Along Came Polly * - 15stars.gif (Admittedly, I only saw about 1/2 of the movie, but I doubt my opinion would improve if I'd seen any more.)
2/16 - Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut - 40stars.gif * (I think I prefer the original version.)
2/16 - Burn Up - 10stars.gif * (Ultra-lacklustre anime that tries to be sexy, violent, and funny, and fails miserably.)
2/16 - Sabu - 35stars.gif * (A period-piece melodrama by, of all people, Takashi Miike.)
2/15 - The Return - 45stars.gif *
2/14 - Shaun Of The Dead - 40stars.gif (Ah... the perfect Valentine's Day movie.)
2/13 - A Very Long Engagement +* - 30stars.gif
2/11 - Last Life In The Universe - 45stars.gif (Just as enthralling and lovely as I remembered it.)
2/10 - The Forgotten * - 25stars.gif (Yawn. Interesting premise played out in a very uninteresting way. But as far as the premise goes, I think I'll stick with
Spoiler
.)
2/07 - Arahan - 40stars.gif (Ultra-slick, ultra-commercial, ultra-fun big budget martial arts comedy.)
2/06 - The Legend Of The Evil Lake * - 25stars.gif (Really melodramatic but really shallow horror/supernatural martial arts, a la The Bride With White Hair.)
2/03 - Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, Pt 2 * - 35stars.gif (It's been awhile since I watched the series, but I still found this fairly enjoyable.)
2/02 - Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, Pt 1 * - 35stars.gif
2/01 - Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow - 35stars.gif

January
1/29 - 2046 - 35stars.gif (Lavish "sequel" of sorts to In The Mood For Love, but much bleaker and darker.)
1/22 - The Professional - 40stars.gif (One of my favorite "guilty pleasures".)
1/22 - Troy * - 30stars.gif (A fun little movie to watch, especially if you give it the MST3K treatment, like my roommates and I did this morning. The jokes practically write themselves.)
1/21 - House Of Flying Daggers + - 40stars.gif (With a second viewing, the movie's flaws become all the more apparent, and yet I can't help getting caught up by the amazing visuals and style. Still think Hero is better overall, though.)
1/20 - New Police Story * - 35stars.gif (Probably Jackie Chan's darkest film, though the melodrama and tragedy were piled on a tad too much, IMHO. Still, it's great to see Chan back in a decent HK production, and even though he's pushing 50, he's still got the moves.)
1/19 - Garden State * - 30stars.gif (Fairly charming, but ultimately, it's philosophy/outlook was just too empty and vacuous.)
1/16 - 3-Iron * - 35stars.gif (My first Kim Ki-Duk film. I can see how some people loved it, but it felt a little too slight and shallow for me. Maybe with repeated viewings...)
1/14 - Samurai Champloo, Vol. 1 * - 35stars.gif
1/14 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 2 * - 40stars.gif
1/13 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 1 * - 40stars.gif
1/10 - Bruce Almighty * - 35stars.gif
1/09 - Blue Remains * - 20stars.gif
1/08 - Blister * - 35stars.gif (Very nice Japanese film about "otaku" - much more solid and dramatic than I was initially expecting, and actually hit quite close to home a couple of times.)
1/08 - Bright Future * - 40stars.gif (The only other Kiyoshi Kurosawa film I've seen is Cure, and this makes for a very nice balance to that film.)
1/06 - Casshern - 40stars.gif
1/01 - All The Real Girls * - 30stars.gif
1/01 - Collateral * - 40stars.gif

I'll see if I can keep up with it this year:

January
The Return: 35stars.gif - honest, I wanted to love it and rave about it
Spider Man 2: 40stars.gif - still quite good, the second go-round
Monsters Inc.: 40stars.gif
Supersize Me: 45stars.gif - brilliant (excellent DVD extras, too)
To Be and to Have: 40stars.gif
Troy: 40stars.gif
Black Robe: 45stars.gif - wow, first time viewing
Intimate Strangers: 45stars.gif
* In Good Company : 35stars.gif
The Devil's Playground: 40stars.gif - highly worthwhile documentary
Ikiru: 45stars.gif - amazing - like an enactment of 'Ecclesiastes' (except it's funnier and in Japanese)
Time of the Wolf: 40stars.gif
A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy: 25stars.gif - 3.5 stars for its comedy, 1.5 stars for its moral center (or lack thereof)
O Brother, Where Art Thou?: 45stars.gif - nifty to see again, since I'm reading Homer's 'Odyssey' at the moment
The Village: 45stars.gif

February
* Sideways: 35stars.gif - a letdown, after all of the hullaballoo
The Five Obstructions: 35stars.gif - easier to appreciate than love
* Million Dollar Baby: 40stars.gif
Mean Creek: 50stars.gif
Story of the Weeping Camel: 45stars.gif
Thunder Road: 35stars.gif
Mr. 3000: 30stars.gif - no great shakes, but a fun baseball comedy
Secondhand Lions: 40stars.gif
Two Brothers: 45stars.gif - beautiful, moral family film
House of Sand and Fog: 40stars.gif
The Cat Returns: 35stars.gif
Porco Rosso: 35stars.gif - both this and the above film seem weaker than those of the prior crop of Miyazaki DVD releases
Cold Mountain: 25stars.gif - after reading the novel, this almost seems like an R-rated Hallmark movie
Human Resources: 40stars.gif ' after this and 'Time Out,' I'll be looking for new works by Cantet

March
* Hotel Rwanda: 45stars.gif
Before Sunrise: 40stars.gif
Spirited Away: 50stars.gif - what a beautiful film
Amadeus: 35stars.gif
* Robots: 40stars.gif - a fun family movie
Ladder 49: 40stars.gif - surprisingly good
The Shawshank Redemption: 40stars.gif - a tad overrated
Before Sunset: 45stars.gif
Signs: 40stars.gif - quite good, but the weakest of Shyamalan's major films, IMO
Slacker: 40stars.gif
* Merchant of Venice: 40stars.gif

April
Flight of the Phoenix: 30stars.gif
* Hostage: 15stars.gif
Shark Tale: 20stars.gif
Romeo+Juliet: 45stars.gif - amazing film, even after the 4th or 5th viewing
Dead Man Walking: 45stars.gif
The Mission: 50stars.gif
The Wind Will Carry Us: 40stars.gif
Contact: 40stars.gif
Danny Deckchair: 35stars.gif
Kung Fu Hustle: 40stars.gif
Babette's Feast: 50stars.gif

May
Fanny and Alexander: 50stars.gif
Enduring Love: 30stars.gif - great first half, very disappointing conclusion

Pieces of April: 35stars.gif
Death of Klinghoffer: 45stars.gif
Jesus of Montreal: 45stars.gif
*Star Wars, Episode III: 45stars.gif
National Treasure: 40stars.gif - a silly, winsome film
21 Grams: 30stars.gif

June
*Madagascar: 25stars.gif
*Lords of Dogtown: 40stars.gif
Shaolin Soccer: 40stars.gif
Tender Mercies: 45stars.gif
