Well, it is the midpoint of 2007, and I've watched 51 movies so far, thanks to my hypo-movie-watcher induced friend. This isn't really accurate, just a thrown together top 10 of the movies I've watched this year.

Top 10 of 2007: Midpoint

1. Life is Beautiful (1997) 10.0
2. Bringing Out the Dead (1999) 9.8
3. Donnie Brasco (1997) 9.5
----------------------------------------
4. Miller's Crossing (1990) 9.4
5. Family Plot (1976) 9.4
6. Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) 9.3
7. Live Free or Die Hard (2007) 9.3
8. Marathon Man (1976) 9.3
9. Grindhouse (2007) 9.3
10. Deliverance (1972) 9.3

These four 9.2 movies could easily replace anything below the lind: Network, Full Metal Jacket, Carlito's Way, Lucky # Slevin

Conclusion: I've seen some great films this year. It looks as though the 90's is my favorite decade, followed by the 70's. It's not strange that two 2007 movies made, as the theater experience really helped. Crowd reactions were great. I'll go back to being a less panache nerd now.

These (except my "top 1") are not of ordinal ranking, my top ten:

1. Schindler's List
2. North By Northwest
3. Raiders of the Lost Ark
4. Rear Window
5. The Day of the Jackal
6. Shadow of a Doubt
7. The Inquisitor aka Garde A'Vue
8. Serpico
9. Dog Day Afternoon
10. Minority Report

Dominated mostly by Hitchcock and Spielberg. Also there are 2 films from Sidney Lumet and 1 French film whose makers I'm not so familiar with....

Dang, Serpico was OK, but top 10 worthy! I love Dog Day Afternoon, I just re-watched that recently.

Top 10 All Time

1. The Matrix
2. It's A Wonderful Life
3. Life is Beautiful
4. The Usual Suspects
5. Schindler's List
6. Vertigo
7. Goodfellas
8. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
9. The Truman Show
10. The Lady Vanishes

I tried to be all inclusive. Not exactly accurate, and there are a few more I will mention later that come close to top 10.
