The National Board of Review will announce the best films of the year later today. Yes, I view it with caution: there's no chance in hell that "The Bucket List" was one of the 100 best films of 2007, much less one of the 10 best as NBR opined.  Still . . . it kicks off the mainstream awards season, and last year's winner, "No Country for Old Men," rode all the way to Oscar gold.  So we'll see . . .

My guess: "Revolutionary Road." Why? I have no idea. I haven't seen it, but it seems like an NBR film. "The Dark Knight" or "Milk" would be inspired choices. So would "The Visitor" or "Rachel Getting Married."

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
