Yesterday I went to watch Slumdog Millionaire at Pavilion's GSC. As you all may already know, everyone around the world has been talking about Slumdog Millionaire since it's big winning at the 66th Golden Globe Awards recently. It won all four of the Golden Globe Awards it was nominated for, including Best Drama Film and Best Director. Slumdog Millionaire has also been nominated for 10 categories in the 2009 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography.
Slumdog Millionaire is adapted from a novel entitled Q and A written by Indian author, Vikas Swarup. It tells the story of a young man named Jamal from Mumbai's slum who enters the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?. He answers all the questions correctly and nobody including doctors and lawyers appeared on the game show before had ever achieved that. This arousing the suspicion of an individual who thinks Jamal had been cheating. He then sends Jamal to the law enforcement officials.
So what makes Slumdog Millionaire so special and won numerous awards? For me personally, Slumdog Millionaire is a very RARE movie. It is not just rare but EXTRAORDINARY too. It is an extraordinary movie that is very hard to be found nowadays. It is definitely an Oscar worth. Please go watch this movie. I am sure you will agree with me!
No Country for Old Men is another rare+extraordinary movie. Please watch this movie too. Or at least read the original novel (the same name) written by Cormac McCarthy.
