I have not caught Juno yet, but I really want to. It stars Ellen Page, whom some of you may remember as Kitty Pryde on the lacklustre X-Men 3, and also the scary girl in Hard Candy. "Ratatouille" -- I loved it. But the truth is, I haven't watched most of the films on this list!

Lot of movies on there that I haven't seen, but I was thrilled to see Sunshine on the list because I loved that one. Glad to see Grindhouse as well.

I've watched: Hot Fuzz (hilarious dark Brit comedy), the Bourne Ultimatum (beats Bond any day) and half of Zodiac (kept falling asleep). There are more on that list I truly want to catch like The Darjeeling Limited, Margot at the Wedding and Eastern Promises (just because its by David Cronenberg). Great list this...!

I've only watched 3 of those. But I rarely ever watch movies as soon as they come out, so oh well. Plus, I have the excuse that some, like Persepolis, have not been released here yet.
