Slumdog After The Fact
First: don't judge.
I already admitted that of all the movie releases last year, I saw 6 of them and not even in a theatre.
I finally got to see Slumdog Millionaire. I was really looking forward to seeing the Best Picture that everyone I know kept saying to me, "How could you not have seen it yet?"
Don't get me the wrong, it was good. Pretty good, even. Best Picture? No. Granted, tragic tales always have the best chance of being nominated. This was a pretty sad story with a wonderfully happy Hollywood ending. And I don't buy it.
Milk was a trillion times more important, inspirational, tragic and worthy.
That's all I have to say about that!
