Nope, not yet. It might have to wait until sometime next year. Next couple of months are going to be pretty busy with all the new releases.

While we're on the subject, when are you going to post your list arsaib?

Looking over my list, good god I need to see more foreign films. My problem for the most part is I've tried to approach foreign film chronologically, so I'm in good shape with silents and films from the 50's, 60's and 70's, but have never made much progress over the last couple of decades.

I'm getting bored enough to start thinking about the next decade.

No, that's fine, I appreciate the interest. But my usual 90's batch is back with a bang!

Glad you finally got around to this. I'll admit my motives were somewhat selfish as I need some decent foreign recommendations from the 90's to help internationally round out my own overwhelmingly American list.

Most of your titles are familiar, and if I haven't seen them, I've seen them around, generally speaking. As far as information regarding each title, I pretty much copied A's format.
