TUBOB: Clint, Button & Me

The one I really want to see, and will this week between ski trips if REI ever gets the bindings mounted on my kiddo's new twin tip K2s, is Gran Torino. Maybe Clint's swan song, definitely a culmination of the whole Clint Eastwood solitary morally ambiguous revenge-taker icon, it's a must see for me. As an aside, and I must say this is no small indictment of my pathetic maleness, I was barely engaged and frankly, kind of sleepy, during the early part of Benjamin Buttons but when the sea battle occurred, the only remotely violent mannish thing in the entire movie, I was instantly hooked and remained so the rest of the movie/TUBOB. More here.

Question: Do you have a must-see movie airing this winter?
