Was "No Country for Old Men" the best movie of 2007? I didn't like it. The movie industry is sick.

I'd say no, it wasn't. 2007 was a bleak year for films (likely a reflection of the current political discord in the U.S.). Nearly every one of the Best Picture nominees was about dark subject matter and often left the viewer feeling more drained than uplifted (Jon Stewart even joked about it at this year's Oscar presentation).
Looking back, out of all the Best Picture nominees, only "Juno" proved to be very uplifting. Even though I listed "3:10 to Yuma" as my top film of the year, I think I'd have to say "Ratatouille" was probably my sentimental favorite.

Have you seen "The Band's Visit"? If so, what did you think of it?
