They definitely put out a lot of great flicks last year, including most of their recent box office hits. However, as I posted in a thread about a week or two ago, that certainly doesn't mean that Universal is done or will have a weak 2007.
There are still unreleased recent box office hits: Bruce Almighty, American Wedding, Meet the Fockers, Along Came Polly, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Inside Man
Recent indies such as Lost in Translation, Pride and Prejudice, Eternal Sunshine, and The Constant Gardener.
They have older blockbusters like E.T., Jaws, Jurassic Park, Airport, American Graffiti, Back to the Future, Smokey and the Bandit.
2006/2007 releases like Children of Men (as mentioned, on just about every critic top-10 list this year), Good Shepherd, Alpha Dog, Evan Almighty, The Kingdom, Smokin Aces, Breach, etc.
And lots of other recent-ish titles like American Pie, 8 Mile, Beautiful Mind, Erin Brockovich, Nutty Professor, Bring it On, Notting Hill, etc.
Not to mention the 'classic' titles in the catalog (To Kill a Mockingbird, Double Indemnity, Universal Monsters) and TV titles (Battlestar Galactica, Law&Order, Monk, The Office)
There is still *plenty* of popular stuff to come out in 2007 and beyond. Plus there are always things like Conan, etc. to throw into the mix to surprise people.
