Bend It Like Beckham is great, if a little bit of a chick flick. It's all about cultural differences, girls playing sports, and Keira Knightley's neck turning me on. Yum.

And as others have said, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is a Harry Potter movie, much like the first one. I thought it was well done.

That's all, since I haven't seen any of the others.

Usually, there are very few movies that aren't worth watching, especially at low American rental prices.

The only movies I saw in 2003 that I truly regret paying for were Underworld and Matrix 3.

Adaptation is particularly good.
Did you see A Mighty Wind? You should see A Mighty Wind.

And Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle was a very fun movie. Then again, I like movies that involve kick ass chicks with gadgets and disguises who go through outfits faster than I go through a pack of gum.
That's fast.
I typically don't need to have a good "plot" to sustain my interest in films of these kinds.
For the same reason, I liked Tomb Raider 2.

also Whale Rider was incredible.
