Slumdog Millionaire ( Not a spoiler )
Saw it before all the hype started and said afterwards that it was the worst film i had seen in quite a while.
I can’t understand all the awards but it appears i am in the minority with my views. Most of the “mainstream” film watchers say i have an odd taste in films anyway so maybe it just comes down to that.Posted 9 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
I’d say it was pretty good film, on the basis that the wife booked tickets for it and come the evening I was in one of ‘those’ moods where I would have preferred a mindless thriller or a comedy rather than something with a bit of edge to it. But I was pretty well enthralled by it right from the start.Posted 9 years agomboySubscriber
Saw it the weekend it was released, so before I’d heard any of the hype about it. Got to say I didn’t know what to expect, but I thought it was an excellent film, certainly worthy of all the hype that’s been heaped upon it now. Best “Feel Good” film I’ve seen in years!Posted 9 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Its a good film, no doubt, but I wouldn’t rank it alongside something like “Shawshank Redemption”. I think its more because it serves to illustrate life from a different cultural / geographical aspect. Its well acted, not too OTT & I enjoyed it. I don’t think it lives up to all the “Best Film Ever” hype though.Posted 9 years ago
“Monsoon Wedding” is another superb Indian film.
If you’ve 4 hours to spare try to catch an older Indian film called “La Ghan”. Thoroughly excellent.KucoMember
It was a lot better than i expected and can see why it has won the awards. I normally get bored in the first five minutes if nothing been killed or blown up but it kept me interested.Posted 9 years ago
I always say every film worth watching the once good or bad just so you can make up your own mind, the only exception to that is the Happening. That film should be eradicated of the face of the earth.
