Movies to See — but just at the moment

Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper have both had their Top Ten lists announced for a while, now, but I’m just getting around to really thinking about them. .
Roger Ebert:
1. Crash
2. Syriana
3. Munich
4. Junebug
5. Brokeback Mountain
6. Me and You and Everyone We Know
7. Nine Lives
8. King Kong
9. Yes
10. Millions

Richard Roeper:

1. Syriana
2. The New World
3. Crash
4. Munich
5. Nine Lives
6. Capote
7. Brokeback Mountain
8. A History of Violence
9. Walk the Line
10. The 40-Year-Old Virgin

I’ve seen everything on Roeper’s list but “Nine Lives” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” Ebert proves more problematic, as I’ve seen the top three and #5 (“Brokeback Mountain,”) but not the others. I’d never even heard of “Nine Lives” until it showed up on both lists; now, it’s got a one-week-only engagement in Kansas City at the Rio, and I’m trying to figure out how to fit in a viewing of it this weekend around all of the family fun. “Millions” always made me nearly cry during the trailers, so I’ll have to pick it up through Netflix soon; I’ve heard nothing but good about “Junebug” and “You and Me and Everyone We Know,” so I’ll add them to the list, too.

“Mrs. Henderson Presents,” “The White Countess,” and “Transamerica” have all finally made their way to Kansas City (Glenwood, Tivoli, and the Palace Plaza respectively), as well, and I’m losing faith in our local small theater to bring them this way, so next week — and next weekend in particular — may be a real feast of good filmgoing for me.
