Slum Dog

T and I went to the movies last night and saw Slum Dog Millionaire, and it was very, very good. I gave it a ten, T gave it an eight. He is a tough one when it comes to movies. I think I gave the last movie I saw a ten too.

No, I dont give them all tens, I just dont write about them if they are only mediocre. I consider it blog worthy if they rock like Gran Torino and Slum Dog, or if they are real stinkers. I havent seen a real stinker in a while.

I guess Slum Dog is being nominated for all kinds of stuff at the Academy awards tonight. I wish it luck, Im not watching because it takes to long to get through all the other crud that I dont care about. I would like to see what Brangelina is wearing though, if they go.

Do you know who I really, really like? I really have a big ol crush on Gabriel Byrne. Not sure if he is even rellevant anymore, but boy I like him in all his movies. Especially as D'Artangnan (Im positive that is not spelled right, but you know who I mean right?) in Man in the Iron Mask. I love him as that character. Sigh. Dont know what made me think of him....anyway, kind of a useless post I know, but there you have it, Slum Dog is great and Gabriel Byrne is neato.

Hey, Gabriel Byrne IS still relevant. He just won a Golden Globe as Best Actor in a Television Drama for his work on HBO's In Treatment, which you MUST see if you are a fan because he is really stupendous in the role.

Visit the fansite a friend and I have started for him: This will help you realize just how relevant he is...

Oh, and I'm glad you liked Slumdog. I have not seen it yet but I think Danny Boyle is a brilliant director, so I imagine it is pretty wonderful!

I am glad to know that you liked it. Tim and I were wondering if it would live up to the hype of the awards. I will have to catch that once it comes out on video!
