If you like Jeff Daniels as an actor, try "The Squid and the Whale" ... he does an awesome job at pissing you off.
Just saw that on my 3-week vacation in Hawaii. This movie is still "burned" into my mind.
For recent movies, tho, just saw "Star Trek", yesterday. I will have to say that I was VERY skeptical, being an avid Trekker, myself, and seeing the shambles they have made of most of the movies related to the Star Trek enterprise (now THAT was punny). My vote? Check it! They did a pretty decent job.
