These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Last King Of Scotland
Award Snub: A lot of people felt that James McAvoy should've been nominated for his strong supporting performance. It did help that Forest Whitaker acknowledged him in basically every single acceptance speech he made (which was a lot).
Complete Monster: Amin eventually turns out to be one. Note "turns out to be", not "becomes"- as his wife Kay says, he was always a bastard; he just didn't let Nicholas see it until it was too late.
Jerkass Woobie: Nicholas. He's perpetually selfish and conceited. He doesn't seem to care much for neither of the married women he's interested in, beyond fulfilling his lust. However, finding out that one of your best friends is a mass-murdering dictator isn't decent karma. Also, watching him get tortured is brutal.
