Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

Is that your final answer?

Slumdog Millionaire has some good performances, some good direction, good music, and some very charming scenes (especially in the first half). But Best Picture? Really? For a movie so very deeply flawed? [Read my full review]

Movies, Movies, Movies

Because Carrie is out of town on her annual Tucson pilgrimmage, I’m finding ways to distract myself from being lonely.  And this time, that involves seeing movies. 

Yesterday I went with @elgaladwen and saw Slumdog Millionaire.  It was pretty good, definitely a thumbs-up, but best picture?  Really?  

Then last night Laura & I watched Tropic Thunder, which is a really fascinating movie.  

And at 4:40 today I’m going with @leiapico to go see Coraline in 3D at the new Regal Cinemas at “The Landing” in Renton.  If anybody wants to join us, they are welcome to meet us there!  

I might try to swing seeing either The Wrestler or Gran Torino tomorrow early afternoon if’n I can find anybody to go with.  

This does mean, of course, that I’m going to be even more behind on my Movie Reviews than I already am.  Le sigh.
