Slumdog Millionaire

Wow this movie was an eye opener to the world of India - do people really live like that? This was a great drama, action packed, love story, that was full of intensity. The way the movie was filmed was different from any other movie I have seen, but I really enjoyed it. I also loved the music - it went well with the movie and scenes.

My favorite scene is when the little boy is pooping in their "outhouse" or bathrooms, and his brother locks him in. The only way out is to jump into the poop...I'm not going to say anymore about the scene, but it was SO FUNNY! And, the little boy is SUPER CUTE!!!

On a serious note, I hope I don't ruin the movie by saying this, but the way the game worked out (India's version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) and completely went with his life growing up was so crazy and cool. I know this is a fictional movie, but it really makes you wonder about the trials and hard things you go through in life, and how you think it's hard at the moment, but then later in life it all makes sense. Great movie - I would watch it again!

One last note on the rating - it really wasn't bad for a rated "R" movie. I think I heard the "F" word maybe twice, and the violence is about as bad as a PG-13 movie. (Not trying to justify...)

I will say the only thing I did not like about this movies was the subtitles - SO HARD TO READ!!!

I was thinking of seeing it, but it would be kind of hypocritical of me since I have banned Logan from watching R rated movies:)
