Anyone seen this?  I just went today, and it was the best movie I've seen in ages.  I can't recommend it enough.

Yes, about 3 weeks ago.  Wonderful film.  I'm predicting this one wins the Oscar, although it wasn't my favorite of the year (an even smaller film called Happy-Go-Lucky).

It's a great film isn't it.  Directed by Manchester's very own Danny Boyle.  I highly recommend another of his films called Trainspotting if you haven't seen it yet.

Very good movie.  It's not too often, that I say  " Hurry up and pull the trigger" I was kind of on the edge of my seat during that scene. Makes one appreciate what they have...

It's really pretty impossible NOT to appreciate and count our own blessings when one visits India, Nepal, Africa or some other similar improvised country. The massive slums we see in the movie are real and common in all these countries.
Kinda put many things we consider as "problems" into perspective when staying alive is the daily basic motivation of these people.   :-\

Blessed Be!

I saw this last week while taking a few days off.  It is one of my all time favorite movies!!! Loved the acting, the filming and especially the story.  When it was over didn't want to leave the theater, stayed until the credits ended.  A must see!!!

We were the last ones in the theater. We didn't leave either , until the credits were over.  Quite a long line of credits wasn't it?

Can I just, er, shout this..

I AM TIRED OF HEARING HOW GREAT THIS FILM IS...

Feeling better.. ;)

IMHO just a very average film after hearing all the buzz about it. Danny Boyle's best film is still Trainspotting.. I remember to these days the baby crawling on ceiling and turning its head 180 degree to look down at us...

Q and A is a novel by Vikas Swarup.

The Book is as excellent. Very well written and highly reccomended to read if you liked the film so much. They changed a lot, but its mostly the same.
