I've only seen nine movies so far this year, the rankings being:

01) Sin City
02) War of the Worlds
03) The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill
04) Batman Begins
05) Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith
06) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
07) Imaginary Heroes
08) Fantastic Four
09) Steamboy

I can only see the top four or five making it into my top ten at the end of the year. other movies this year I think might make it: Broken Flowers, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Chronicles of Narnia, King Kong, Art School Confidential.

i will probably be seeing 7-8 movies from this year within the next couple weeks, but right now the only movies i wanna put on there are:  The squid and the whale, sin city. 

i've seen last days & me and you and everyone we know.  both were pretty good but i dont think i consider them list worthy.  i expect capote, broken flowers, and a history of violence to crack the list eventually.

I've avoided most of the art movies for some reason. Here's mine

1. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
2. The Aristocrats
3. Good Night, and Good Luck
4. A History of Violence
5. Batman Begins
6. War of the Worlds
7. 40-Year-Old Virgin
8.
9.
10.

Still have to see most of Cine's list. I bet Capote, Broken Flowers, Grizzly Man could get up there. I'm sure Munich will find it too.

My least favorites so far: Me and You and Everyone We Know, Crash, Lord of War, Episode III, Sin City.
