Default OT: The Prestige, Catch A Fire, The Departed, Flags of Our Fathers, Babel

I cant remember the last time there have been such high quality films in the theaters. All of them are Oscar worthy. Which ones have you seen and what are your thoughts about these movies?

The Prestige
Catch A Fire
The Departed
Flags of Our Fathers
Babel


And let's not forget BORAT, which hits the screen this week.

Departed= Good but overrated. It was too long and only the last hour was really good.
Prestige= Underrated but a bit farfetched with the device at the end.

Have any of these besides The Departed and Flags of Our Fathers been out for at least 2 weeks? I got some free passes from my chiropractor but they aren't good for new releases. Thought I might go this afternoon.

I'm excited about Babel and I really want to see the Prestige, but I don't know if they could be considered Oscar-worthy.

I think the Departed is going to be the best film this year but I have conflicting emotions as to whether I want it to win an Oscar or not, as I think Infernal Affairs was probably the better film.

Flags of Our Fathers and Catch a Fire seem pretty generic, but I hope they can prove me wrong.
