Birthday movies

My wife bought me a whole slew of movies for my birthday so I am stocked up on films that I need to see. Our movie watching habits have changed dramatically since the kids were born. We very rarely go to movies at the theater any more. We almost never rent movies anymore either because we can never be sure when we will have time to sit down and watch a movie. We will occassionally watch a movie on pay-per-view on the spur of the moment, but most of the time I like to buy the used DVDs from Hollywood Video or Blockbuster for my collection and those are the ones we typically see.
For my birthday I got:

Casino Royale (James Bond)
The Da Vinci Code
Flags of Our Fathers
Letters From Iwo Jima
Mission Impossible III
The Good Shepherd
Everyone’s Hero
Tom and Jerry: Shiver Me Whiskers (Mostly for my kids)

I also got some birthday money and went out and bought:

Happy Feet
X-Men III: The Last Stand
Blood Diamond

This will catch me up somewhat on my 2006 movie watching. Here is the list of 2006 films that I now have seen or own (a * means I’ve actually watched the movie):

*Pirates of the Caribbean II: Dead Man’s Chest
*Night at the Museum
*The Da Vinci Code
Happy Feet
Casino Royale
*Devil Wears Prada
*World Trade Center
The Good Shepherd
Curious George
Blood Diamond
The Wild
Flags of Our Fathers
Letters From Iwo Jima
United 93
*An Inconvenient Truth
Everyone’s Hero

I haven’t seen anything that has come out in 2007 yet but eventually I expect to see:

Spider Man III
Pirates of the Caribbean III
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
and probably Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Oh, and also Live Free or Die Hard.
