Hey, alright - someone else besides me likes THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE! Congrats on keeping the moviegoing flame burning - I should keep track this year, but I'm pretty sure my wife & I managed to get to the theater at least once a week.

Sorry, no top ten yet. One of the disadvantages of living out in the sticks is that 'prestige season' isn't over with until about mid-February, so there's a lot I still have to see.
