Here is a tally of the "votes" so far. I counted the first ten for people that listed more than ten, counted PT and/or DP as Grindhouse, and am only listing titles that received more than one vote (a ton of films received only one vote).
  1. No Country for Old Men - 31
  2. Zodiac - 30
  3. Grindhouse - 22
  4. Hot Fuzz - 16
  5. Knocked Up - 16
  6. The Bourne Ultimatum - 15
  7. Eastern Promises - 14
  8. Into the Wild - 13
  9. Ratatouille - 13
  10. American Gangster - 12
  11. Superbad - 12
  12. 3:10 to Yuma - 10
  13. Gone Baby Gone - 9
  14. Once - 9
  15. I'm Not There - 8
  16. The Darjeeling Limited - 7
  17. Juno - 7
  18. Live Free or Die Hard - 7
  19. 300 - 7
  20. Stardust - 6
  21. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - 6
  22. Stardust - 6
  23. Michael Clayton - 6
  24. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead - 5
  25. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street - 5
  26. Rescue Dawn - 5
  27. Black Snake Moan - 5
  28. Transformers - 5
  29. Atonement - 5
  30. Sunshine - 4
  31. King of Kong - 4
  32. Lars and the Real Girl - 4
  33. The Simpsons Movie - 4
  34. Death at a Funeral - 3
  35. The Lookout - 3
  36. Shoot 'Em Up - 3
  37. Breach - 3
  38. 1408 - 3
  39. Bug - 3
  40. Lives of Others - 3
  41. Waitress - 3
  42. Sicko - 3
  43. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 3
  44. There will Be Blood - 2
  45. Breach - 2
  46. Meet the Robinsons - 2
  47. The Mist - 2
  48. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - 2
  49. Hatchet - 2
  50. 28 Weeks Later - 2
  51. Hot Rod - 2
  52. Killer of Sheep - 2
  53. Reign Over Me - 2
  54. Across the Universe - 2
  55. Southland Tales - 2

I was surprised that no one besides me mentioned Disturbia or Talk to Me. And I imagine that There Will be Blood would have garnered many more votes if it had been released earlier.

I'm anxious to see ST also.

I'll update the tally if the thread gets up to 90 or so lists. Maybe I shouldn't promise that actually.......

I completely agree about Disturbia, I think it was a very underrated film of '07.

Here's my top ten:

Edit: Now that I've seen more 07 movies, here's the revised list:

1) The Bourne Ultimatum
2) Transformers
3) 300
4) Live Free or Die Hard
5) Knocked Up
6) Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street
7) Disturbia
8) Reign Over Me*
9) Sunshine*
10) Stardust*

*Newcomers

And here are the top movies from '07 that I haven't seen but want to:

1) No Country for Old Men
2) 3:10 to Yuma
3) American Gangster

8) Hitman

10) I Am Legend
