Saw Gran Torino really, really good. Sure the kid and his sister weren't good actors, but for the most part I thought that gave it a certain authenticity to the movie, only once or twice was it a distraction. It was better than I thought it was going to be overall and I had high hopes. The ending was really perfect - the perfect way to end it for the maximum emotional impact. Will see it again for sure.
Of the three possible best picture nominees. I still lke Slumdog Millionaire the best (Hicks you need to go see it) followed closely by Gran Torino and then Benjamin Button all three are excellent and proves to me they are still making excellent movies
