2. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) - at least I've seen most of it on TV
3. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) - saw the new digital version just after U was born
4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) - saw this on the plane the other week, missed the end unfortunately, looks great.
5. Matrix, The (1999) - saw this in Belgrade shortly before Milosevic was overthrown - great to look at, silly plot.
6. Manchurian Candidate, The (1962)
7. Incredibles, The (2004)
