It's grown to be quite a list!

May I asketh how you enjoyed Sunshine, 3:10 to Yuma, and The Assassination of Jesse James?

I really liked all three of those films, I hadn't expected a lot from either 3:10 to Yuma or The Assassination of Jesse James since I've never been much of a fan of "Westerns" per say but both of them transcended the genre and were pretty fascinating. Sunshine I enjoyed overall but I need to watch again, I sort of lost track of the philosophical aspects and am a little murky about what was happening in the last half.
