I've seen most of those. Harry Potter was Harry Potter, I don't know much more to say about it. Road to Perdition was nice, but more as a view into the past than as an actual good-plot-movie. Solaris didn't have much in the way of action, but it was nice. I'd read the book, and I think they did a fair treatment of it. 24 Hour Party People was interesting, though rather odd. A nice view into the music industry I suppose, or at least one demented aspect of it.

28 Days Later was a good survival movie, more like The Stand than like a traditional zombie movie. I really liked Secretary, and I thought it was a great presentation of sexuality and how 'normality' isn't for everyone. Bend It Like Beckham is a nice light feel-good sort of movie, pretty funny too. I haven't seen Igby Goes Down, but I wanted to, and I heard it was really good.
