Slumdog Millionaire

I just didn't feel any emotional ties to anyone in Slumdog. The Wrestler on the otherhand had me rooting for him and I wanted his daughter to accept him and wanted him to hook up with Marissa. And I cant believe two songs from Slumdog got nominated while Springsteen got snubbed.

Slumdog was a very well done film, although the ending was pretty obvious and a bit corny. Still I think it gets an Oscar nomination.

 

The Wrestler will be hard to beat. Art imitates life. Mickey Rourke was able to physically transform himself into a character that you can't help but like. Also Marisa Tomei is naked.

Slumdog was good when it was dealing with the young kids. A bit contrived and manipulative, later on.

 

Neither it nor The Wrestler particularly wowed me. Good viewing experiences, entertaining while they lasted, but nothing that a day or two later had me thinking I'd seen a really good movie.

 

"Doubt" was better than expected, as was "Grand Torino."
