I saw Match Point last night. Was OK.

For what it's worth, Broken Flowers was neither Jim Jarmusch's nor Bill Murray's best, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit.....

I don't know about Rent in the top 10... I definitely agree with Munich and Narnia in the top tier, though. I am partial to Brokeback, although I am glad it got an honorable mention.

You should also include in your omitted list because you didn't see it, The Upside of Anger.
