Time for Jack's movie roundup. I believe the last one I commented on was Closer. Some before and some after that...
+ Before Sunset: thumbs up, definitely goes near the top of my all-time best list
+ Garden State: thumbs up, enjoyable but a little bit forgettable
+ Sideways: thumbs up, fantastic movie, just see it
+ Incredibles: thumbs up, funny and original, Holly Hunter rocks
- I Heart Huckabees: thumbs down, really liked parts but overall left me kind of cold
+ House of Flying Daggers: thumbs up, I was riveted
+ Kinsey: thumbs up, a fascinating portrait of a man who changed the way we think about sex in this country; couldn't be more timely
- The Life Aquatic with Steve Ziszou: thumbs down, could have been great if Anderson had let the actors actually PLAY the characters
+ Hotel Rwanda: thumbs up, an important movie with amazing performances
+ Million Dollar Baby: thumbs up, great performances redeem the somewhat sappy story
+ In Good Company: thumbs up, Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace are hilarious in this actually very sincere movie about the ever-changing corporate world

Out of curiosity, what did you think of Before Sunrise? I rented both on the recommendation of my cute dentist. I watched Before Sunrise last night, and thought it was great at times and barely passable at others.
