Yay! The list continues. (I guess you needed some time to figure how to squeeze in Transformers: Rise of the Fallen.) *massively loud wink*

I've noticed a lot of films that feature female directors on your list so far.

Lost in Translation: the first of many Anna Faris films to make it on your list. ;)

(Wait, why am I winking? Brokeback Mountain has a legit shot at cracking the list.)

Haven't seen L' Auberge Espagnole, but I did see Cédric Klapisch's When the Cat's Away in theatres when it came out.

My mom hated Tropic Thunder.

Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck was an awesome name in 2006, and it still is today.

Apparently your governor is similar to a character from the Old Testament.

There's a garbage strike in Toronto.

Ooops, I meant to say, "Revenge" of the Fallen.

Oh, and my mom didn't "hate" Tropic Thunder, she just didn't think it was funny as say, you or I did.

Brokeback didn't make it. :(
It was a last minute cut.

You know, I didn't notice the gynocentricism of my list before you mentioned it.

My mom actually liked Tropic Thunder. Surprised me!

Florian's name is just so damn regal!
