I recently watched Taken, Gran Torino, and Slumdog Millionaire. All three of them are amazingly good. Spectacular in fact. Also, I watched Defiance and Valkyrie. While these aren't as good as the former three, if they had come out at another time I would be saying the same thing.
I next need to watch the Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Wrestler. However, I have yet to do that.
I just figured I would let who ever reads this know. That those are five movies they shoudl DEFINITELY watch.
