I watched Death Race last night. Not my kind of movie but it was the only movie I could find on tv last night that I have not seen.

Slumdog is a must see film.

We watched Woody Allen's 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona last night. God I love chick flicks. This is the second time I saw this movie.

The contestant is not a lower caste but from a minority community.

Thanks for the clarification. I was just going by what little I know about India's culture and the clips and conversations I heard. At any rate it is a story about the little guy winning big!

we saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night - it was just OK. Too much of a formula, big Hollywood production for me. Too "Forest Gumpy" for me too. No way this will win the Oscar for best picture.

Going to see Milk on an early matinee today (pre-superbowl movie).

We watched Jodhaa Akbar at home on Friday night. I enjoyed this Hindi film very much, about a 16th century love story and clash between two cultures. Beautiful film.


And last night we watched Frost/Nixon. Well made film about the David Frost interview with Richard Nixon following his resignation.
It was a good film but I don't think it was Best Picture material. I think Slumdog will win.

I agree about Benjamin Button.

Milk is the only Best Picture nominee I have yet to see.
