Thoughts on "Slumdog Millionaire"

I finally saw the film tonight, and here's my reaction to it:
  1. I liked it, even though I missed the first half-hour (long story).
  2. Danny Boyle knows what he's doing.
  3. Not surprisingly, the part of Bombay that they show in the movie seems like an AWFUL place to live.
  4. The Taj Mahal sequence was hilarious.
  5. Best Picture? Really? Maybe I should see it again the whole thing through.
What do you guys think?

You should definitely see the whole thing through -- the first 30 minutes is KEY!!

You really do you miss the beginning of his story and it's hard to get attached to a movie when you haven't been on the journey with it from the beginning,

I loved that movie, it was amazing... I'm glad it got the nomination!

yawn. methinks danno had the same reaction he would have had he seen the whole thing, and knowing that man, he was probably up to much more important business during that time.
