Slumdog Millionaire

I'm not much for love stories, so you better bring your "A-Game" if you are going to win me over in the romantic movie department. I saw "Slumdog Millionaire" last night and I would have to say that I was impressed, even if the "love" involved in this story was more subtle than the adventure aspect of this film.

And, if you're feeling down about the current economic climate we are facing, nothing will make you realize that things aren't so bad as watching the abject poverty that the main characters face growing up amid the slums of Mumbai, India. Sprinkle in a few songs by M.I.A. for good measure and I would have to say that "Slumdog Millionaire" was well worth the nine bucks I spent last night.
