Wall-E wuz robbed.


Slumdog Millionare made it onto my personal lifetime top 10. I think it's just brilliant. And AR Rahman is my favorite contemporary Indian composer. I'm so thrilled that more people are being exposed to his brilliance.


I found Slumdog assaultive and manipulative, and not in a good way. The torture scenes were bad enough, but the little beggar kids being blinded was some kind of last straw. Also, the adult leads were not as half as interesting as the child actors playing their earlier incarnations.

Did love the finale at the train station, where our beleaguered hero turned out to be a wonderful, loose-limbed dancer. In fact, I almost wish the movie had gone full-out Bollywood and included song-and-dance numbers between its atrocities.
