This movie is AWESOME. Everyone should watch it.

It's already out?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/9/08 - 12:12:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
...oh wait never mind. I see the date it was released.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/9/08 - 5:12:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's been out for a while I guess, but I think it recently went into wider release.

I agree, this was good. Interesting conceit, beautifully filmed. I thought a few things were a little predictable, but overall it's worth seeing.

Looks good. Doubt I'll ever watch it, though, unless my parents buy it on a whim. I like to "borrow" their DVDs.

I think that this movie looks really good. But I read on IMDB that it was coming out in 2009?

It came out in the major markets on 12Nov, and is starting to hit other cities in arthouse places this weekend. As awards buzz builds, I imagine it'll expand to "regular" places in 09.

This one was a gem. It made me choke up at times
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/16/08 - 6:55:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Possibly my favorite movie ever ever ever!

I finally saw a trailer for this the other day after hearing such good things about it, and I think I'd like to see it.

this damned thing got great reviews so I went to it.
The bastard was so depressing and awful and nerve racking.
I don't recommend it for pregnant ladies at all.
Especially the part where their mother gets killed.

I cried my fool head off in the car after it was over. Then I had bad dreams that night.
God allmighty I have to stop listening to the critics.

I'd been considering it, but sofey's remarks only made me more interested. Hm!
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/6/09 - 11:51:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
haha!!! Let us know how you like it, G&B.

I fcking loved this movie.
I'll buy this one when it gets to disc.
So delightfully cheerful yet incredibly fcked up.

I saw this the first week it came out, and was like "Man, I'm cool for having seen this before it got media attention."

So true. Best movie I've seen in 2009, and I've seen a lot !

Yeah. If it doesn't get Best Picture I'll be chapped.

It's not playing around here. Milk didn't play here either???? I don't get it.

Guess I'll be waiting for DVD.

My man rented it but I was reaaaally sleepy (it was a Wednesday) and I fell asleep shortly after it started.
He watched it and liked it though.
I heard they have some Sigur Ros in the soundtrack - that's always good.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/26/09 - 9:28:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's got my dad's fav actor in it Anil Kapoor, i can't wait too watch it this week.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/09 - 7:49:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think i'm going to see this tomorrow.

Very good film. I was left at the end feeling like i'd gone on a huge adventure through this kid's life.

Beautiful. I'm watching this one again.

Loved it! A really sad story to get to a happy ending. Almost teared up at a few parts.

And I liked the little dance thing during the credits. Completely unexpected!

Dovetails the main kid's life with the Millionaire format beautifully. Nicely acted, but nothing really out of the ordinary in terms of plot, other than the merge of past with the gameshow, which is an interesting plot device - baddys are suitably bad, uplifting ending and true love. What more could you want from a flick?

I don't see this as on a par with the other 'best movie' oscar contenders I've seen this year. It feels a bit flimsy in comparison. The poverty of the slums doesn't feel so real, somehow. Everything feels a little bit shiny, a bit hollow. I dunno, I wasn't terribly convinced - maybe it was overhyped?

I loved how much of an utter bastard the gameshow host was, though. I wish they hadn't redeemed the brother. It added to the formulaic feel. They should have just let him be a bastard.
