Who wants to be entertained?

I gave Slumdog Millionaire a whirl because of the sheer amount of film awards it seemed to accrue in such a short space of time. I couldn't switch on the radio without news of this film's success being driven through my ears; it won 11 BAFTAs don't you know! I wasn't really disappointed.

The film centres around a young orphan who finds himself in police custody following an excepti... read more

Mesmo com todo esse furor em volta de 'Quem Quer Ser Um Milionário?', eu não estava botando muita fé nele. Talvez seja pelo pôster do longa que, convenhamos, não é tão atraente. Na verdade, estava mais a fim de ver 'Watchmen'. E tive uma grata surpresa. 'Quem Quer Ser Um Milionário?' é um filme inesquecível, apaixonante.

Com tudo muito bem calculado, o filme de Danny Boyle... read more

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2000's) (38 movies items)

" Notes: Apparently, at first, nobody was interested by this project and there was even some rumors that it might end up being released directly on DVD. Eventually, it managed to get released and the critical and public response was really enthusiast and, coming from nowhere, it was even heralded at the Oscars. Personally, even though I'm a huge cynical, I actually really loved this movie. In my opinion, it is one of the best combinations of drama, realism and entertainment I have ever seen and "

" Note : I really loved this movie. It is one of the best combination of drama, realism and entertainment. A great achievement. I always found that Danny Boyle was a very good director and once again, he proves it here. I'm really glad he finally received all the recognition he deserved.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: April (35 movies items)

"April 24-25 "When somebody asks me a question, I tell them the answer." After the numerous amount of praise this movie has gotten especially with it sweeping the Oscars, I was pretty much anticipating this movie to be incredibly overrated and overhyped. Well, to my surprise it was pretty good. It's still a little overhyped and it's not even close to being the amazing film everyone else makes it out to be, but it's still a really well-made film that tells a decent story and I'd be lying if I"

If There Had Been 10 (11 movies items)

" The Dark Knight, Wall-E, and Doubt all would've been locks if there had been ten nominees. Knight was the biggest movie of the year, and had been nominated at most of the major guilds including the PGA, DGA, and WGA. Wall-E was another Pixar classic, and would receive five nods that year. Doubt had hung around all season, and it would've played hugely with the actor's branch. I feel pretty solid that #9 would've probably been Revolutionary Road. While it didn't get much help from the Guilds, i"
