    Wow, Juno, Snow Angels, Forgetting Sarah Marshal, and Frost/Nixon were all in my top 25, with Juno being in the top 10.

  2. Nick Says:

    Please consider putting The Dark Knight on your top 10. That movies deserves all the praise it gets.

  3. Lorna Says:

    Glad to see ‘Whale Rider'(2003) on your list of the best.Keisha Castle Hughes was rightly nominated for an Oscar.

  4. Bill Says:

    I thought “In the valley of elah” would make the list. Probably one of the best dramatizations of
    the post tramatic war scars of being numbed to human killing. It clearly was an anti-war statement but had some great truths that are not readily addressed.
