Sorting out movies

I couldn't completely keep track of the movies I saw this year in the theater, but I searched back on the blog and at my moviefone/fandango receipts and came up with this list. I've sorted it all out into meaningful categories. Links to original bloggings where possible.

Some movies I saw this year:

Movies for which I am completely satisfied to have paid NYC ticket prices (and internet ticket fees, if applicable):
Me and You and Everyone We Know
The Squid and Whale
Corpse Bride
Broken Flowers
Grizzly Man
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Batman Begins

Waiting for renting would have been fine:

Mad Hot Ballroom
Fever Pitch
The 40 Year Old Virgin

Movies that I probably would have liked less had I rented them, but the movie theater experience was OK with me on that night/looking back at that night:

Star Wars 3
Harry Potter 4
Fantastic 4


everything is Illuminated

Things I didn't see, that maybe I will catch on video:
Walk the Line
Bee Season (expectations: low, based on what I've read)
Weather Man
Goodnight and Good Luck
New York Doll

(the last part is based on what I could remember and scanning a list over at the NY Times. I'm not so super current on movies, so recommendations etc are appreciated.)
