Ok thanks, I was thinking of PERSOPOLIS which I have been told, a good Iranian movie to watch too.

Watched Grand Tarino last weekend with Clint Eastwood. Best movie I've seen in a long time Something I didn't expect out of a Clint Eastwood movie

I have Sideways on TV right now but later today we are going to catch a matinee of Frost/Nixon. I try to see all the movies nominated for best picture before the awards show. The two I haven't been able to get to yet are Doubt and The Wrestler. I really wanted to see both of those before the Oscars, but ran out of time.

We haven't been to the theaters in ages. Most all our current movie watching comes from either borrowed academy screeners or bootleg copies.
We've pretty much seen dozens of films which are nominated this year.

If you enjoyed Sideways you'll also like Bottle Shock.

Frost/Nixon is a must see. I enjoyed it very much.

I saw Bottleshock last weekend - I thought it was pretty good.

I saw Frost/Nixon today - it was good, but not great. It has zero chance of winning best picture at the Oscars tomorrow night.

I have a couple of rentals to watch tonight, if I am not too movied out.

I agree, it has zero chance of winning. I think it's either going to be Slumdog or The Reader.

My money is on Slumdog but the Reader is a great film, well acted and a riveting story line.

I think I will watch Slumdog again this evening as there's nothing exciting on tv.

Slumdog, yesterday afternoon. I'm glad it swept the Oscars last night. Haven't seen any of the other nominated films - yet.

An old hindi film 'Madhumati'. It is one of my favourite films.

We watched Ghost Town last night. Cute movie. Thought it would be more funny than it was though. Started out great but turned sappy at the end.
