    I've only seen three so far, with "Y Tu Mama, Tambien" easily being my favorite, and in fact one of my favorite films from that year. "Great Expectations" far exceeded my own expectations for the film, and I think it's one of the better adaptations/modernizations I've ever seen. "Harry Potter" is quite a step down from both of those, though I like it better than the other installments by quite a bit. Still... I was expecting more.

    And I can't wait for Criterion's release of "Love in the Time of Hysteria" this Fall!

    I own Y Tu Mamá & Children of Men. The HP movie is a weird thing because I may or may not buy the complete set someday depending on how the series pans out. Not sure if I should explore his back catalog, but I'm certainly looking forward to his stuff in the future.
