I highly recommend Slumdog millionaire,good underrated film , deserves all it's plaudits

I'm not sure it could be classed as "underrated" considering all the critics are praising it!

Oh, that Striped Pyjamas one is about a concentration camp, I think.  Don't know how its rated but could be depressing.

It was realy really good  :D..every now and then I noticed his accent would slip and the British one would slip through, but that was only the odd occassion, The film itself was brill  ;D 

Now...lets discuss Daniel Craig....I actually don't find him that attractive..I try..but its not working for me!  The only film I saw him in and I thought "Ding Dong" was Layer Cake  ;)

Slumdog Millionaire.  

This is brilliant.  Spellbinding.

It's actually from a book written for older children..or maybe younger teens. I saw the film and yes, thoroughly depressing but good. I saw a lot of teens there in the cinema when I saw it.

"The Reader" book tracks all the main characters and general plot pretty closely, but the book paints the guy as much more of a jerk than the film.

In the novel, the guy spent the rest of his life hiring prostitutes to imitate his memory of Hanna putting on her stockings.  The film shows Hanna putting on her stockings, but never refers to it again. 

In the novel, the guy goes to speak to the judge to explain that Hanna was innocent of writing the report because she couldn't write, but when he meets the judge they just engage in small talk and he never says anything about Hanna's illiteracy.  And that pretty much condemns her. 

Also in the book, he had lots of sexual fantasies about Hanna as a sadistic SS guard.

So the guy was actually a pervserse twit, but in the film he's portrayed as normal.

Gosh, I didnt interpret him as a pervert or a jerk at all in the book... just weak.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was a good film. Loooooooong, but good. It's sort of Forest Gump-ish.

And of course the ending is sad but I loved it. I'd recommend it if you have the time to spare.

Slumdogs raises the bar.  I'm going to get the OST for it.

I know you have been nagging me about this for ages, but Dan is not playing ball!  He wants to see 'The Wrestler', and we both want to see 'Milk' and 'Frost/Nixon', so I fear 'The Reader' will have to wait for the DVD...

Australia.

This has got to win an award for cinematography or some such. 

The lead actress is an Aussie who plays an Englishwoman and does cut-glass RP with Aussies for an added twist of irony.

It's Nicole Kidman, one of the most famous women on the planet (and Tom Cruise's ex).
