Let me just list them and you can decide for yourself:
The Hangover (Unrated Two-Disc Special Edition) - not funny but clever, I kept waiting for the killer punchline but it was just too light on the jokes heavy on the visual aids.
Gran Turino - Great film although very depressing. Although the old man and young boy are the main focus the brilliance comes from the young sister.
Marley & Me - While I'm never fully convinced of the love between the main characters the love for the dog was undeniable.
Revolutionary Road - Hard to watch life behind the curtains of a seemingly perfect family. Well acted and again depressing.
Orz Boys - A Taiwanese film about boys growing up without caring parents. It is cut between cartoons and real life. It is a story told in an odd way and does not translate well so it may give some people a headache.
Die Hard - A freakin' Christmas classic. Wholly uplifting.
