I am not an acclaimed critic by any means, but I must tell you about the best movie I saw in 2008: Slumdog Millionaire. It is rated R, but I'm pretty sure it's rated on India terms. There was nothing too intense about it. Just one f-bomb that I can remember. But, it's worth it. It's amazing. I would recommend this movie to anyone! I would recommend this movie to my mother. Go see it.
ps. I also really loved Dark Night, but that's a given, I think.
