is NOT what I expected. It was a really good movie with plenty of violence. If it would have had more nudity and references to drug use i would definetely agree that it deserved the awards it received....:D

I am hard pressed to think of ANY situation that could not be improved by the presence of explosions, pro's and some automatic weapons fire! :thumbsup:

Just watched last night. Great movie. I also liked Danny Boyle's other movies like Trainspotting, Millions, and 28 Days Later.

Were there lots of high-speed car chases and resulting exploding cars flying though the air while flipping end-over-end?

+1

Except you missed Shallow Grave, which was delightful.

Even The Beach is better than one would have expected (I believe that was Doyle's also).

I have to say, as ridiculous as it was that Dark Knight wasn't even nominated, of all the other contenders I've seen (which is all of them but Benjamin Button) Slumdog is the only one that was Best Picture worthy.

Rachel Getting Married was barely mediocre.

Watched it last night and was pleasantly surprised. A very solid movie - sort of a return to quality filmmaking as opposed to CGI-bloated, re-hashed, mediocre fanboy masturbation pieces.

Have you been watching the Bridges of Madison County again?

Nudity? They can't even show a kiss in India.

I really wanted to hate that movie---- but SDM, The Wrestler, and The Dark Knight were all on-demand in-flight movies last week--- as well as Quantum of Solace. Watched them all. The Bond flick was nothing special--- the rest were excellent. SDM was a bit heavy-handed and overly manipulative, but it exceeded my expectations.

Yeah, I was a bit dissapointed. It was more of a gimmick movie, for me (the soundtrack was pretty good). Yawn.

Oh yeah, if it had some karate too, it would be awesome!

WTF gimmick???

Parts of the movie are really disturbing, but I was amazed at what a good feeling I had when it was over. Moives that play on pathos and are "sad to be serious" are the gimmick sort to me. Life means that we all experience tragedy, but find something worth living for just the same. Not the Slumdog was necessarily "real life."

Yes, it was written!

The dance number at the end was terrific, and Dev Patal is hot. (hey I'm a chick)

Well, the only reason I didn't walk out of the movie was because of Frieda Pinto.

I just watched it (we got netflix for Xmas). I thought it was good but not near what the public thought it was. Pretty depressing.

I've seen Slumdog twice. Good movie, but some just won't 'get' it. Whole cast is a buncha foreigners, and who wants that? :lol:

And yes, the dark side of India it shows is depressing, rightfully so.
