ben button hype is not there. Slumdog is + 1000

i want to put dark knight but the ending of batman being able to kill and beat up people in the dark i didn't like at all. heath did a great job.

i have yet to see diving bell & butterfuly or in bruges or happy go lucky...(those won awards).

revolutionary road was meh, i can't say it was good cause i didn't like the story (or wasnt exciting enoguh)

Funny you should mention that. I've been meaning to watch Kung Fu Panda but haven't gotten around to it yet. I did really enjoy Wall-E, though.

Wall E over panda for sure.

I did like zack n miri make porno, i did not expect the two male and female lead to have so much chemistry and a decent story line, but if i had to choose a comedy, i would choose role model.
