Agree with a week year. I would have picked Button, Gran Tornio, Doubt, Dark Knight and Slumdog.
Frost/Nixon really isn't a very good movie. It's not a bad movie and I enjoyed it but it wasn't anything special.
I have already given my thoughts on The Reader.
Milk is good, but I think was going for a certain "shock" factor that took away from the point. I also didn't like the narration.
