Glenn Just Saw City of Slumdog

I just saw City of Slumdog. It's not as good as we're being told, but is moderately entertaining. More later. B- or maybe C+. Perhaps a B- for the music.

Yeah i had the same feeling. Enjoyable, and you'll leave the cinema feeling great, but calling it the best film of the year is a bit much...

I am just getting ready to watch it and I will try to be totally objective!

I also got Milk so I am watching them back to back! Whee-ha!

Stay tuned.

i really liked slumdog -- i'm more in A- land. and no lie the love it was greatly helped by the music.

I'm with you, Glenn. I'm willing to say B- simply because I think it worked for what it was. It just wasn't all that. At all.

I didn't leave the cinema feeling great either. I just left thinking "this movie really shouldn't be winning all these awards." That dance # was fun, though.

Yeah, I'm with you on that Adam. I didn't come out of the cinema high on life or whatever, I actually came out thinking how strange it was that they mixed such horrific violence with a story that was supposed to be uplifting. Nothing quite says "feel good" like eye-gouging, police brutality and domestic violence, right?
