These rankings are updated every week and are only intended to reflect the opinion of Daniel Barnes. All films playing in Sacramento area theaters are listed, as well as most films playing exclusively in the S.F. Bay Area.  Repertory showings are excluded, as they are obviously the superior option wherever available.  Underlined films are on my catchup list.
