All 8 were well deserved

Oscars that is! It's so nice to finally see a film that deserves every accolade and award it received. This is without doubt the best picture we have seen in a long time, unlike previous winners that were a big disappointment. This film is brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle and the format of flashbacks depicting the heroes life, worked very well for us.

Slumdog Millionaire is a film that pulls no punches, showing the real side of life, not the polished Hollywood 'reality'. It is gritty, funny, heart-rending, horrifying, nervewracking, uplifting and ultimately just a joy to watch. It shows that despite living through hell, a persons humanity can survive intact and their spirit ultimately triumph.

I'm not going to add anything else, other than to urge you to see this wonderful film, you won't regret it.

I thought it was a good movie - although parts were hard for me to watch. Loved the Bollywood-like ending credits :)

I watched this last weekend and it was so wonderful. *sigh* Yes, all 8 were well deserved.

We haven't seen this movie yet, but it was good to hear that you liked it so much. Some movies are disappointing after the 'official' reviews. Thanks.

I had watched this just before going into Hospital and oddly enough dreamed about it in my nightly deliriums! Mac said it was depressing...but then, we can't all love the same things, can we? For once, the Academy got it right.

Thanks for the tip. Also, thank you for the blog suggestion you left for me! Loved it, and added it to my burgeoning list of absolutely wonderful bloggers. Including you, of course.

It's been out a while but I still haven't seen this have heard it was good. Something very different.

I absolutely love the music Ar Rehman's Jai Ho by the Pussycat Dolls. Not sure why they sang baila, baila at the end though. Weird.

Have to go, my cat is drooling over my hand and the keyboard. Yuk!
