Ahhh, Green Zone! Of course. Thank you for re-reminding me of that. I think you also want to put Micmacs up there-- Just for the fact it's Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Ahhh yes. I did not know about that movie.

Now it's my 1st on the list, because it already came out.

Will. Excellent choices. I haven't heard of a lot of these, but just by the directors and/or actors in it...oh man I am thrilled. There hasn't been a year where there has been that many films that interest me for a loong time. Thanks for that.
