No Country for Old Men.
I am not or have not been a fan of the new releases, most are the same old story new people at best. This one is a bit different IMHO. It is not a true blood and guts movie, but it is pretty violent (so be warned on that) - and there is no way to talk about the plot without giving it away. It hit an 8.7 on IMDB (here) and is worth it.
Sweeny Todd (2007; Depp)
I saw the original BBC version and walked out of this one - a musical murder story? bleh...
Perfume, the story of a murder
Odd, Weird (and what I expected of Sweeny Todd) but not a waste of time / if you don't mind demented stories.
