The Last of the Contenders

After being slightly disappointed by Danny Boyle's poppy, existential survival story 127 Hours, there are just a handful of films left to be seen before we can lay all of the chips down on the table and let the games begin. 
Personally, I can't wait for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan or the Coen Brothers' True Grit, then there's David O. Russell's The Fighter, which is building up strong buzz following its LA premiere last week (especially for Best Supporting Actor nominee in the making, Christian Bale). 
But everyone's (or so it seems) Oscar leader right now is the obligatory British prestige film of the year, Tom Hooper's The King's Speech, which I won't be able to see until around Christmas. 
And then there are pockets of strong-to-intermediate contenders like John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole, Nigel Cole's Made in Dagenham and Peter Weir's The Way Back.
