Movie: Slumdog Millionaire
We watched Slumdog Millionaire recently, on BluRay. The film got Oscar attention earlier this year, winning a lot of the prizes, including best picture. The film is worth to watch in HD, there are a lot of colors and details - for example the scene zooming away from the slums, or the Taj Mahal view. The movie itself had a nice story and pace, linking the questions in the "Who wants to be a Millionaire" contest to the events in the life of the protagonist Jamal - but there are unexpected violent scenes including torture right in the beginning, shooting and mutilation. At the end I think it is a worthwhile movie, but the violence does prevent a top rating and it is not the happty "feel good" that is advertised below.
