    Anyone seen it?

    Just watched it. To be honest, didn't really fancy it, particularly after it won awards. (Normally a bad sign!)

    Anyway... highly recommended......

    corrected thanks imran:thumbsup:

    must be me in the minority then-absolutely hated it-just did not hold my interest.

    the wrestler and gran torino are the best of the oscar contenders imho.

    Not seen either...... I'll let you know what I think! (Far too many films to watch ATM!) :whistling:

    i thought it was great - loved the bollywood style dance scene at the end :-D

    Its, well, not as "nice" as the trailer makes it look. And thats a good thing. Enjoyed it.

    The Wrestler though, Mickey Rourke has to be up there as an Oscar contender for that performance. Brilliant!

    Agreed, I thought it was just me, very loud at the beginning, great film though

    pics of u and ur wife naked holding the tickets or u didnt go.



    Didnt go where?

    Thought Slumdag was a good film, a change to the usual films that are out.
    Liked The Changeling but not Gran Torino both Clint films.
    Milk is not bad as its the true story about Harvey Milk & i like true stories.

    Must admit if I not seen a film review where they were talking about how good it was I may have given it a miss. Luckily I didnt. I thought it was the best film I had seen in ages. Tackled some really difficult stuff in clever ways. The cinematography if thats what you call it was spectacular. Amazing shots and scenes. Story was funny and sad. I think it thoroughly deserves all the awards it gets. I thought the cast acted the socks off of many big western 'stars'.
    Shame that the big film distributer pulled out. Their loss.

    Saw Milk as well. Good acting by Sean Penn. The subject material means many will not see it.
    Australia was over rated in my opinion. A big screen spectacular for sure but seemed to get lost halfway through and if you want to compare to Slumdog in my opinion the cast of Slumdog vastly out acted anyone in Australia.
