Slumdog Millionaire ROCKS

June 9th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Movies

If you’re a regular reader of the Trade Show Guru, you know I’m partial to the word “rocks“. Some might even say I overuse the term, as I have written the posts “Netflix ROCKS” and “Avast AntiVirus ROCKS“, and the post “Balance” using the metaphor of a pile of rocks. Well, in this case, the word is appropriate. The movie Slumdog Millionaire ROCKS!

We saw Slumdog Millionaire last week. We got the DVD from Netflix. I think we may have been the last people on this planet to see the movie. Anyway, with all the hype around it, my expectations were low. I find that usually when I expect a lot from a movie, I’m disappointed. I know this movie received the Oscar for Best Picture, but I usually don’t agree with the judges. Well, this time I did. Slumdog Millionaire is the best movie I’ve seen in a long time.

The surprising thing is that Slumdog Millionaire is not my favorite type of movie. I like action flicks, pure comedies, and “feel good” “Hollywood ending” movies. Slumdog Millionaire was more of a drama. But what a drama! It was one of the best “put together” movies I’ve seen. It had some very disturbing scenes, but they were real. Perhaps that’s why they were so disturbing. Anyway, I don’t want to give away the plot (if anyone hasn’t seen this movie), but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a funnier escape from a locked latrine (who would think being covered with *** could be funny?). And the little kids in Slumdog Millionaire are cute!

Well, enough gushing. Slumdog Millionaire is a great movie.
