1. It's wierd to watch a movie about real people when the real people are still alive.
2. I wonder if any of the people that are still alive (aka Queen Elizabeth II, Tony Blair, Prince Charles, Cherie Blair etc.) have seen the film.
3. I liked the fact that the movie didn't assume that you knew too much information and provided plenty of embedded information that anyone could understand the film.
4. The Golden Globes would be a lot more interesting if they created a new catagory this year, simply "The Best Performance by Helen Mirren," being that she has received 3 nominations this year (The Queen, Elizabeth I, and Prime Suspect).
5. Both my mother and wife have asked how to pronounce Helen Mirren's name...her star-stock has certainly risen since her "Calender Girl" Days.
6. I agree that they shouldn't have put up the flag at Buckingham Palace.
7. Michael Sheen certainly deserves credit for his portrayl of Tony Blair. He certainly earned some star power. (Knowing he was in this film made me recognize him in Blood Diamond).
8. The use of archive footage reminded me of Good Night and Good Luck.
9. I thought Alexandre Desplat's score for this film was a little annoying.
10. I really liked it when Prince Phillip said to The Queen "Move over, Cabbage."
