I'm dead tired, and I was going to go to bed an hour ago and instead wasted an hour reading through some stuff on the I would have forgotten to post this all together if I hadn't decided to post that last entry, so I need to keep this brief. I would say that I’ll come back and add more later, but I never do.

Number 6 - Frost/Nixon

Frost/Nixon kept my attention from beginning to end. I was surprised that the suspense worked as well as it did, considering that I not only knew the outcome, but I’ve seen the clips that they were replicating. Nixon comes across as one of the year’s best characters. Not a character where I would want to hang out with, but entertaining as hell on screen. I could see an Oscar nomination for the role. Of course, though, it’s on the list because I’m a history geek. It would make a sweet double feature with All the Presidents Men.
