Stanley Tucci is wonderful in The Devil Wears Prada, a movie which also got the honor of perhaps being the first movie that showed me the workings of the fashion industry, a foreign world to me.

Magnolia isn't really a good movie, but is much better than Crash, which got the same theme of multiple characters involved in very strange and random circumstances, though the latter also gets loud-mouthed about the whole racism issue, which don't work if not handled well.

The King is the best of this bunch even though the ending don't seem well-justified, and is left unexplained, and I wish there should have been a better lead, while William Hurt provides a really good performance. By the way, this it happens to be the first movie I've seen that touches on Intelligent Design.
