SEFCA likes "Milk"

The Southeastern Film Critics Association, of which I am a member of semi-good standing, announced its list of 2008 winners yesterday. Milk and Slumdog Millionaire were the two big winners. Alas, my beloved Gran Torino got shut out. And that odious Frost/Nixon made it into the top ten. Ugh.

Next up are the Florida Film Critics Circle. The ballots for that one are due tomorrow.

I have to say I don't think The Reader belongs on that top 10 list, either. And for me to say that about a Ralph Fiennes movie...well...you KNOW it can't be perfect.

Rene Rodriguez

What the hell is "Frost/Nixon" doing there, too?

And "Revolutionary Road of Endless Bickering" does not belong there, either.

I also don't get the incessant praise for "The Visitor." I mean, I liked it, but it's no "Gran Torino."

Connie

Some would say Gran Torino doesn't belong on that list either! Frankly I liked a LOT of movies more than I liked that.

I have to watch Frost/Nixon still.

And I really did love Milk, but would still put Slumdog at no. 1

Rene Rodriguez

Listen, eggroll, GRAN TORINO is awesome.

HoCo

Gran Torino was terrific and Clint Eastwood was his usual masterful self behind the camera and in front of the camera too. Hope this movie gets some Oscar love and that Wall-E isn't relegated to the cartoon ghetto 'cuz it's a work of art.

Connie

Eastwood was certainly his usual self in front of the camera; hasn't he been playing that part in a variety of different settings - the old west, a boxing gym, a Detroit neighborhood - for years now!?
